THESE are the first images of the new Citroen C4 which is to be launched with conventional and electric powertrains.
With a more chiselled body style than its predecessors, the new model has a pronounced front overhang and a sweeping roofline.
Details are sparce at the moment, although the new C4 and the electric e-C4 will be launched online in a presentation to be screened by Citroen executives on June 30.
The French car maker says the car is due for release before the year is out and as well as the choice of petrol, diesel or electric power the C4 will be fitted with the brand's latest comfort features including its progressive hydraulic cushion suspension system.
Citroen describes the newcomer as a blend of hatchback and SUV styles in the compact part of the market.
The interior appears to be fairly clutter-free with instrumentation centred on two display screens - one in front of the driver and the other in the middle of the dashboard.
While the C4 sees the return of the brand to more traditional segments following Citroen's recent SUV ventures with the C3 and C5 Aircross models, the e-C4 is the fifth electrified vehicle it will have launched this year.
