Citroën’s seven-seater Grand C4 SpaceTourer has been updated for 2021. It now comes in two streamlined trims with a choice of efficient petrol and diesel engines, as customer demand continues to drive the MPV’s success.
The Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer’s Trims
Grand C4 SpaceTourer sees updates to its trim options, resulting in a rationalised range focused on the most popular upper-level versions.
Effective from October 2021 production, the model will now be available in the two most popular trim levels only, ‘Sense’ and ‘Shine’. The entry-level ‘Live’ trim will no longer available.
SENSE: This variant come very well equipped as standard. It includes 17-inch ‘Shamal’ alloy wheels, dark tinted side windows and integrated aluminium roof bars. It also feature 3D-effect rear lights, as well as a reversing camera for added ease of driving.
Inside, ‘Sense’ models feature a 12-inch Panoramic HD central display and a 7-inch Touch Drive interface with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard. ‘Sense’ models also feature Citroën Connect Nav with three-years of live traffic updates.
To ensure the safety of drivers, passengers, and other road users, all models feature Active Safety Brake with Forward Collision Warning, Driver Attention Alert, Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation as well as a tyre pressure monitoring system.
SHINE: Best-selling ‘Shine’ models add to above with a panoramic sunroof and black door mirrors to the exterior styling. And Xenon Intelligent Beam headlights – which automatically dip to prevent dazzling oncoming road users.
‘Shine’ models also benefit from an active lane-departure warning system. There’s also active cruise control with speed limiter, and braking function for semi-autonomous motorway driving. A blind-spot monitoring system helps reduce accidents, while a park assist function can take over parking duties in difficult situations.
The Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer’s Engines
Both ‘Sense’ and ‘Shine’ trims are available with a choice of efficient petrol and diesel engines. These can be paired with either a manual gearbox or an eight-speed automatic transmission (paired to the PureTech 130 petrol engine). For ‘Sense’ versions, Citroën has removed the BlueHDi 130 EAT8 automatic powertrain to prioritise more popular engine variants that remain. However, the ‘Shine’ trim has the additional option of a BlueHDi 130 Diesel engine with the eight-speed automatic ‘box.
Customer demand has been the key contributor to the streamlined range. Over 90 percent of customers order the ‘Sense’ and ‘Shine’ trim level, and around 60 percent opt for the latter, range-topping model.
Citroën’s Grand C4 SpaceTourer has been named DieselCar and EcoCar ‘Best MPV’ 2021, and ‘Best Used MPV’ in the What Car? Used Car of the Year Awards 2021.
Production commences in October 2021, and pricing for the revised Grand C4 SpaceTourer range starts from £28,630 OTR.
