Citroën C4 THP 155 Exclusive


Rating: 2/5

We love the C4. What a pity then the beautiful THP – massaging front seats and all – has only a horribly slow and jerky automated manual gearbox.

There’s no clutch pedal, just F1-style paddles behind the helm – pull right for an upshift, left for down.

That’s about as far as the F1 connection goes. What’s left are neck-snap­ping gear changes (don’t hurry – you’ll just hurt yourself) and a constant fear that something is about to break. Avoid.
