The suspension consists of a front MacPherson strut with coil springs, hydraulic telescopic shock absorbers, and a rear self-steering axle with outstretched legs and hydraulic shock absorbers with a stabilizer, which in other words turns the C4 into a real cruiser. Soft suspension makes driving comfortable, especially on the highway, but not very fun. The suspension is too soft for fast driving on winding roads, so the body tilt is very noticeable.

Depending on the market, the engine range is matched to a wide range of transmissions: manual transmission, automatic transmission and the new 6-speed manual transmission. The initial engine on offer was a four-cylinder 1.6 VTi petrol engine with 120 hp which in 2008 was replaced by a 1.8 petrol engine with 127 hp.

  • Hello-I have a Citroen C4 Grand Picaso 1,6 2009 year and I have a problem, so I turn to you, if you can help me. Let me immediately mention that I do all the services ahead of time and that I never put a used part on the car. while driving, it starts to run, it reports engine overheating and it stops for a moment. I changed the temperature sensor, we first put a new one, which worked for 4 days, then we put a used one from another manufacturer that worked for 2 months and it is not good to put a third, new one again, which did not eject the error for excessive engine temperature, but the problem remained the same - piston and trap. .Thank in advance
