Citroen C4 / Citroen C4 Owner's Manual / Practical  advice / Towing

Towing (boat, caravan, etc.)

Before departure:

Check the tyre pressures of both car and trailer. Check all the exterior and signalling lamps of the car and trailer. Practice manoeuvring, especially reversing. Grease the towing ball hitch regularly, and remove it when not towing for a long period. Spread the load inside the caravan and keep within the towing weight limits. Always drive at moderate speeds, changing down a gear in good time before hill climbs or descents. Be aware of the effect of side winds. Braking distances are increased. Use the brakes gently and progressively. Avoid sudden braking. If you have to park on an incline, make sure that the parking brake is firmly applied. Check that the tow hitch is firmly attached and, if necessary, chock the wheels of the trailer. When towing, the fuel consumption will increase.

Towing a vehicle

If you are towing another vehicle, the latter should be out of gear (gearbox in neutral). Move the gear lever to neutral (position N for SensoDrive and automatic gearboxes).

Observe your vehicle's towing limits

It is essential to comply with the max. Gross Trailer Weights and speed limits as specified by legislation in each country. For further information about the towing capacity of your vehicle and its max. authorised Gross Train Weight, contact a CITROËN dealer

Removable towing ring

The towing ring is detachable and can be fitted either at the front or at the rear of the vehicle. It is stowed in the jack’s protective holder in the spare wheel.

Advice

In exceptional circumstances, it is permitted to tow the vehicle at low speed over a short distance (in accordance with the local legislation in force). In all other cases, the vehicle must be transported by a transporter.
