If you’re a lease customer looking for the maximum bang for your buck, you’ll want to take a look at the new and updated Citroen Grand C4 SpaceTourer.
The seven-seat MPV has been winning some serious admirers in recent years.
It was named DieselCar & EcoCar ‘Best MPV’ 2021, and ‘Best Used MPV’ in the What Car? Used Car of the Year Awards 2021. Just this week it was also crowned ‘Best Used MPV’ by Auto Express in their annual used car awards.
And now Citroen has revealed they’ve honed the range so that those behind the wheel get all the ‘desirable features’ they crave as standard.
The former base ‘Live’ trim level has been jettisoned entirely, leaving just ‘Sense’ and ‘Shine’ variants instead.
A Citroen spokesperson tells us:
“Customer demand has been the key contributor to the streamlined range, with over 90% of customers ordering the ‘Sense’ and ‘Shine’ trim level, with around 60% opting for the latter, range-topping ‘Shine’ model.”
The Sense models come with 17-inch ‘Shamal’ alloy wheels, dark tinted side windows and integrated aluminium roof bars. All models also feature 3D-effect rear lights, as well as a reversing camera for added ease of driving.
Inside the cabin, Sense versions feature a 12-inch Panoramic HD central display and a 7-inch Touch Drive interface with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard. They also come loaded with Citroën Connect Nav with three-years of live traffic updates.
There’s a suite of driver assistance systems, including Active Safety Brake with Forward Collision Warning, Driver Attention Alert, Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation as well as a tyre pressure monitoring system.
Moving up to the top-of-the-range Shine trim level, there’s a panoramic sunroof, Xenon Intelligent Beam headlights – which automatically dip to prevent dazzling oncoming road users - as well as an active lane-departure warning system.
You can also expect active cruise control with speed limiter and braking function for semi-autonomous motorway driving. A blind-spot monitoring system helps reduce accidents even further, while a park assist function can take over parking duties in those extremely tight spots.
Whichever trim level you opt for, there’s then a straight choice between either a 130 PS petrol engine or a 130 PS diesel mill.
With the petrol you can expect fuel consumption of up to 45 mpg, or up to 57 mpg with the diesel powertrain.
As you might expect, it’s the petrol that’s the quicker of the two options, giving you an acceleration time of 0-62mph in just 9.8 seconds when paired with a manual gearbox.
Order books are open now and production commences in October 2021.
