    What would you prefer : C4 cab or C2S cab

    Hi all!

    My money (and the good will of my better half) is good for a C4 cab or for a C2S cab with 355 hp. The price of these both cars is nearly the same.

    Here in my region we have about 10 snowy days per year (but at 6 a.m. the streets are full of salt).

    I do not know what to do:

    The advantage of the C4 cab would be that this is a newer car with better looking rear. I would choose the 19'' wheels + PASM too.

    The advantage of the C2S cab is the faster engine.

    What would you prefer ? Thank you for your help to find a decision

    Or is it better just to take the standard C2 cab and lease it 1 year less ( 4 years instead of 5 ) to get a newer car 1 year earlier


    Greetings

    Re: What would you prefer : C4 cab or C2S cab

    Hey sidney, I would prefer a c2s cab. Since it only have 10 snowy days in your region, it is not necessary to buy the c4 cab vs the c2s. I personally own a c2s and a cayenne s, and i find that the cayenne does not give best possible traction on the snow. One time my car slip and find myself in the middle of the main stream traffic. Also, the red calibur also looks better. I don't know how much different will it be in real life about the rear end of these two cars. Both cars are very attractive and very capable, and it is all about personal taste. If you get the c4 because there are 10 snowy days per year, i would go with the c2s. the four wheel drive will probably give you more traction, but not the snow. The cayenne did not hold up well against snow storm in my region so i doubt the c4 will be much better. Anyways, it is just my opionion

    Re: What would you prefer : C4 cab or C2S cab

    You don't need 4wd in snow, all it takes are good winter tires. Go for the Cab 2S!

    Re: What would you prefer : C4 cab or C2S cab

    Thanks for your answers

    But the main point of view for voting for the C4 cab would be the look and not the weather advantages.

    So the short question is:

    The C4 cab for the look or the the C2S cab for the engine

    I both c4 and c2s look amazing! But the c4 wider back is really hard to tell especially to people who don't know much about car "the ladys" I love the red calibur on the c2s, it is gorgeous~!

    Re: What would you prefer : C4 cab or C2S cab

    If you go for Xenon lights + PASM + 19" wheels (all standard on the S), it's better to get an S than a non-S. You'll make up the price difference when you turn in the car, so enjoy the engine upgrade you're getting for free .

    As other members already pointed out, you should be fine without the AWD provided you put on winter tyres (which you would have to put on the C4 anyway).

    So, if you really care about the look and can afford to "freeze" Euro 5k during those 5 years, get a C4S. If you don't, get a C2S.

    Re: What would you prefer : C4 cab or C2S cab

    C2S! the looks are almost identical and not as obvious as the 996 generation was

    Short answer is - I would take the extra engine power over looks everyday.

    Re: What would you prefer : C4 cab or C2S cab

    I would take the C2S anyday over the 4wd.

    10 snowy days is nowhere near enough to justify 4wd

    Re: What would you prefer : C4 cab or C2S cab

    C2 S it is .

    Re: What would you prefer : C4 cab or C2S cab

    Hi!

    8 : 0 ----> C2S wins


    Thank you for your help !

    Re: What would you prefer : C4 cab or C2S cab

    C2s.
    No doubt about it..
    the visual differences are not big at all + the C2s engine is a beaut. Traction in the C2s is hardly an issue, even in rain but i dnt know how it will fare in snow though.
    Anyway, the carrera S will be my choice. As long as its Arctic with Terracotta

    Re: What would you prefer : C4 cab or C2S cab

    That's pretty much a toss-up choice, IMO.
    I still may lean a bit towards the C4 Cab- I just love the wide body (and higher hips). You'll still have outstanding performance with the C4 Cab too. Need to see it in person, but the pictures show an obvious diff., IMO.
    Now if it's between the C4S Cab and C2S Cab, I'd go for the 4S Cab with little doubt.
