After analyzing the exterior styling of the new Citroën C4, LIGNES/auto invites you to get on board. This is a picture, because – precisely – Citroën has communicated only one image of the interior below. But LIGNES/auto has taken out its magnifying glass!
The dashboard of the C4 respects the fundamentals of the interior design of the brand’s previous creations: it is a “piano” dashboard, totally horizontal.
C4 : ITS DECIPHERED DESIGN
Citroën announces that “the comfort of life is provided by the habitability and its practical aspects, including an unprecedented innovation for the passenger to be discovered in a World Premiere at the presentation of C4” What can this world premiere be? We zoomed in on the only image available, we have clarified it and here is the result.
This would be the presence of a drawer positioned in front of the passenger.
In 1: a trap door (or a drawer?) is present on the edge of the board.
In 2: a first push button is present. It commands the opening of a large drawer which is able to hold A4 size documents.
In 3: the classic glove box with its lid that opens on the knees.
It is noted above that this is a drawer and not a lid that opens vertically because, in 1, we guess that hinging upwards would be impossible.
The integration of the screen is particularly worked on. The foamed coating of the board is flush with the screen (in 1) up to halfway up the screen. Then it plunges behind the screen (in 2), a solution that requires perfect control of the finish. The rectangular screen is integrated into an arrow-shaped piece that seems to enlarge it and sets the interior style apart.
In 1, the rotary controls pilot the air conditioning.
In 2, space for recharging the smartphone by induction.
In 3, a large storage area with the double chevron pattern.
In 4, a tiny control lever for the automatic gearbox, embedded in the console.
A small detail that shows the care taken on board, the air conditioning controls (in 1) are striped with a pattern reminiscent of Citroën’s double chevron.
There are also new steering wheel-mounted controls with more ergonomic raised buttons.
As for the finish, it seems to have focused on a few interesting colour and material details, such as this blue reminder on the door panel of the electric version.
