Like its 5-door sibling, the Citroën C4 X is manufactured exclusively in Spain, from where it is exported throughout Europe. The car, which represents almost 1/3 of the cars produced at the Madrid plant, is very Spanish as two of the three parts that make it up are made in Spain.

To build the C4 X, no fewer than 130 lorries arrive at the Stellantis plant in Madrid every day, coming from all over Spain. In fact, no less than 67% of the elements that make up the latest Citroën come from 136 companies and suppliers based in Spain. A commitment to Spanish products and know-how that generates jobs and wealth not only in the Madrid region, but also in 26 other provinces in 10 autonomous communities. Each new Citroën C4 X carries a piece of Galicia, Aragon, Cantabria, the Basque Country, Navarre. Navarre, Castile-Leon, Castile-La Mancha, La Rioja, Catalonia and the Valencian Community.

Citroën has been present in Spain for a long time and is almost a national brand there, and with 60% of its range built locally, this situation is unlikely to change, although this proportion will tend to fall with the imminent departure of the C3 Aircross for the Trnava plant as part of the generation change.


The C4 X, produced at a rate of 200 units per day, is being added to the 400 units of the C4 to allow the Madrid plant to return to high production levels, which should rise to over 23,000 units this year if shortages do not disrupt production for another year.


Launched at the beginning of the year, the latest C4 X allows Citroën to offer a new silhouette in its range to compete head-on with the Renault Arkana. Situated between the C4 and the C5 X, the new C4 X allows Citroën to offer a family saloon in its range without competing directly with the C5 Aircross, which retains the practicality of a hatchback.
