Compare with other cars in the Small Family Car category

The C4 is a strong performing car and achieved the five-star rating for occupant protection. The stable passenger cell provides good protection for all of the occupants, the car losing only just over one point in the frontal impact. The restraint systems include dual-stage airbags, belt pre-tensioners and load limiters, seat mounted side airbags and a head protecting curtain airbag. An intelligent seatbelt reminder system catered for the driver and rear seating positions in the car. The child protection offered by the car was very good. The score in the pedestrian tests was the joint best (with the SEAT Altea) Euro NCAP has seen for any car evaluated to the latest protocols.
