The end of April has come, then there is the Citroën C4 HDi 150 Aircross , based on the successful Mitsubishi ASX is based. In addition to a 1.6-liter gasoline engine with 115 hp turbo diesel, two to choose from – the HDi 115 with 1.6 liters and 115 hp and the 1.8-liter HDi 150 with and 150 hp. The latter can be developed in collaboration with Mitsubishi and is equipped with a variable camshaft timing, which adjust both the intake valve lift and the times. The aim is a low consumption can be achieved despite challenging performance.
GRUMPY 150-PS-DIESEL – For our first trip we opted for the HDi 150, the standard consumption of 5.6 l/100 km. The driver starts the motor by pressing a button, powerful diesel grumbling goes to work. If he is operating a bit quieter, he is not properly cultivated, however. For the acceleration of the 1.6-tonner he needed speeds under 2000 rpm is almost nothing. So a lot of shift work is required. On the first exit the consumption meter is in the eight liters. Suspension and dampers are tuned pleasantly comfortable, and too great a body roll is spared the occupants. The steering feels great due to the restoring forces to be getting used to. According to the Citroën increase the accuracy and calming in a construction-crossings.
