    Default Citroen C4 VTS vs VTR

    Can anyone tell me how a Citroen C4 VTS pulls an extra 27kw of power over a VTR? Have tried multiple web sites but can't find any information.

    Almost - I think there is both a 1.6 and a 2.0 VTR, as well as the 2.0 VTS. I'm guessing the OP is talking only about the two 2.0 models.

    The VTR is the "standard" 2.0 petrol EW10J4 and the VTS is the EW10J4S engine.

    This engine is also found in the 206 GTi180, as well as the 307 Sport and 307 CC Sport.

    The difference is the cylinder head, basically. It was "worked over" a little bit.

    The VTR engine is probably a little easier to drive, but the VTS engine is a lot more fun and sounds much better.

    Doesn't the EW10J4S engine

    have variable valve timing and the EW10J4 not? That would account for a fair difference in output.

    C4 VTR 2.0 actually has the EW10A engine (which is 103kW vs 100kW for the EW10J4) which does have VVT.

    Thanks Troy.

    That means they both have VVT, I guess
