Citroen C3 and Citroen C4
As with many of the Citroën vehicles, there has been a constant evolution in both design and engineering. To look now at two specific Citroën models that can be supplied by a citroen dealer:
This compact city car is available from a good citroen c3 Brisbanedealer. For example, the Citroen C3 Exclusive Hatchback has a 1.6 litre, 4 cylinder petrol engine. For a car of this size this is quite a powerful engine. However, it is still pretty economical. It has a combined City and Highway figure of 7 litres of unleaded petrol needed for a 100 Km trip. It has four speed automatic transmission.
Other features include a “hands free” Bluetooth system, an AUX jack and USB port for any media devices. Safety is also taken into consideration. A standard feature of the Citroen C3 range is that they are fitted with six air bags. There is also a lot of internal space. Up to 300 litres in the Citroen C3. Back seats can readily be flatted to provide added luggage space.
The Citroen C3 Seduction is another variation of the Citroen C3 that a citroen dealer may offer. This is a highly economical vehicle with a 1.2 litre, 3 cylinder engine. It comes with a 5 speed gear box and a combined fuel economy (city and highway) of 4.5 litre needed for 100Km.
This can be considered a larger family car. Therefore, citroen c4 Brisbane dealers have a range of these models available. The Citroen C4 Seduction 1.6 Litre Turbo Diesel has an interesting engine feature. It has a stop start system. When the engine decelerates, it is put into “idle mode”. Once the car stops the engine is turned off. When the foot is taken away from the brakes, the engine restarts. This helps to reduce CO2 admissions by 5 grams per Km. In city driving, fuel consumption can be reduced by 15%.
Apart from this, the Seduction eHDI 82Kw turbo diesel, 6 speed EGS, has an electronic 6 speed gear box, a limiter and cruise control with a “memory”, and folding seats which can be split 60/40, along with a number of other features.
The Citroen C4 “Picasso” has been evolving since its arrival in 2006. It is very much its own car and can be treated either as a large family car or a SUV. The 5- seater, the latest development, has a 1.6 litre turbo charge petrol engine (unleaded), again using “stop start” technology. It also has a fully automatic 6 speed transmission.
