This is the facelifted Citroen C4L, it will be launched on the Chinese car market in July. The Citroen C4L is a China-only compact sedan. The facelift includes a new grille that moves into the new LED headlights, new bumpers fore and aft, new tail lights, new alloys, and an updated interior.
This is the current Citroen C4L, it was launched in late 2012. It is made by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture. Price starts at 131.900 yuan and ends at 189.900 yuan. Engines: 136hp 1.2 turbo, 139hp 1.8, and a 167hp 1.6 turbo.
The engines will continue in the facelifted car and price range will be about the same. Because of the new bumpers the facelifted car will be a tad longer; plus 55 millimeter. It will also be a bit taller, not sure why, by a whole 2 millimeter. This brings size to: 4675/1780/1500, and wheelbase is unchanged at 2710.
New alloys look a lot better but wheels are still very small.
The interior sees a huge improvement. Basic design of the dashboard is still the same, but everything else is new; the steering wheel, the instruments, the touch screen, the buttons, the gear lever, the electronic parking brake, and the layout of the center tunnel. The seats however are unchanged.
Compare with current:
Looking almost old fashioned in comparison. Beige color scheme doesn’t help.
The shape of the lights didn’t change but the layout did. Bumper is new and so is the rather large exhaust pipe. It all looks a few tads more modern and more luxurious. A facelift well done. Current car once more:
Not so sure about the shiny bits in the lower bumper. New grille is good.
