    Not car related, who edited this video? Very amateurish and rather than reusing clips of the same shots, why not have a guy actually standing next to it and talk about it? It's very boring video, visually. Though the visual of the car is, in contrast, pretty refreshing.

    The design is far too busy. It looks like a piece of A4 paper that has been scrunched up and left to unravel. They are trying too hard. I don't like this design language at all. As Coco Chanel said. "before leaving the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off".

    Phew! Citroen finally ditch touchscreen heating controls! Yay!! This car looks good. Design issues for me are no manual handbrake (feel, confidence, fun), spoiler across rear window and just a 50kwh battery. This is disappointing considering the competition. 65kwh should really be a minimum. Hopefully this will get a bigger battery soon. Will UK version will have full size glovebox? Fingers crossed. That apart, looks like a winner. Tentatively, well done Citroen (never thought I'd say that) ! Await full review of UK model, and... Prices!

    The Toyota C-HR found 400.000 EU buyers in 3,5 years. This means 'quirkiness' sells. The Cit likely will better the Toyota in roominess, comfort and, with sibling Peugeot awared UK's most Reliable Brand by JD Power, quality of the C4 III will be just as good.

    As much as I love my Citroen C4 Coupe. I don’t feel that these new models are very attractive. The C4 Cactus was nice and unusual. But these look too much like their competitors. I see too much Toyota in this design. Bring back the quirky Central Speedo, fixed hub steering wheel and sweep to centre windscreen wipers.

    The official boot capacity is the same as competitors because it’s only measuring what’s below the parcel shelf. Boot space above that isn’t counted in those numbers so the sloping roof doesn’t change it. If you fill it up to the roof then it’ll be smaller than its competitors.
