The Citroen C4 is a small family car produced since autumn 2004. The C4 was designed to be the successor to the Citroen Xsara.

To cope with this difficult part of the market, the Citroen is greatly committed to building a new model that would capture the interest of a large chunk of customers: the Geneva Motor Show in 2004 was presented the C4 Sport, a concept from the lines definitive made​​-bodied coupe and prefigured among other things, the willingness of the French company to employ it in competition. The car was finally unveiled at the Paris however, both as a coupe, both as a hatchback and 5 door.

Designed by a team that included among others Donato Coco and Jean Pierre Ploue, the C4 was indicated by the press as the car that marked a distinct return to a style French company from the pack. Building on the floor of her cousin, the Peugeot 307, the C4 was immediately made available in two body variants: hatchback 5-door hatchback and coupe three-door. The front is common to both versions, with the grille formed from virtually extensions of the central crest. The most characteristic is the area instead of the pavilion: the sedan is much more rounded and soft shapes, so they can boast a Cd of just 0.28, while the coupe is decidedly angular, with a rear split into two parts and lights back.

For example, the car features the "Lane Departure Warning System", which alerts the driver if he or she crosses a road marking without using the turn signals; directional headlights; perfume dispenser integrated into the ventilation system; translucent dashboard, transparent glass roof; ESP (Electronic Stability Program), and a fixed steering wheel hub which lets the driver operate several functions of the car without removing his or her hands from the wheel.
