Citroen Says Production C4 Cactus will Keep Concept's Airbumps and Sofa-Style Front Bench

When we shared the first scoop photos of the production C4 Cactus last month, we looked at the camouflaged prototype and couldn't see the concept's so-called "Airbumps", which is a customizable cladding on the doors made from a soft skin featuring air capsules that protected the bodywork against light impacts.

Turns out that they must be there somewhere as Frederic Duvernier, the Cactus concept's external designer, told Autonews Europe that the feature will appear on next year's production model.

The Frankfurt Motor Show Cactus Concept is Citroen's fancy and attention-grabbing way of telling us that it will soon have a representative in the increasingly crowded compact crossover segment. The French brand's own words are that it depicts "a vision for the future models in the C-line", but pictures, and in particular scoop pictures, speak louder than words…

Citroen is replacing the C4 Pallas for the Brazilian market, with this, the new C4L, which uses the latest incarnation of the hatch as a starting point, instead of the previous-generation car, which went out of production in Europe in 2010. Also, it is to be built in the neighborhood, and specifically, in El Palomar, Argentina.

We've known for a while that Citroen is developing replacements for the five-seat C4 Picasso and the longer, seven-seater C4 Grand Picasso, and that both minivans will feature a new design.

Nevertheless, these scoop pictures of a convoy of C4 Picasso MPVs driving on the streets of the city of Vigo in Spain, and which come to use courtesy of the crew over at Highmotor, caught us completely off guard - not so much by the fact that the cars were completely undisguised as by what is visible…

Wheels of Steel: Robert Kubica Proves He's Still Got It


Read more

If not all, most ordinary drivers would think twice before sitting behind the wheel of a racecar after such a traumatic crash as the one experienced by former BMW-Sauber and Renault Formula 1 star Robert Kubica in Italy almost two years ago.

But not Kubica, who not only returned to racing, but the Pole also made his maiden victory in a World Rally Car at the 2012 Rally di Como in Italy this past weekend.

Read more

For the past few years, Citroën has covered the mainstream compact MPV market in Europe and other parts of the world with two variations of its C4-based Picasso, the regular five-seater model and the longer seven-seater Grand Picasso.

This won't change with the next generation of the C4 Picasso that will continue to offer buyers a choice of two different body styles.

We've already scooped the five-seater model and now our spies have captured the first photos of the larger and more spacious C4 Grand Picasso while undergoing hot weather testing in Europe.

Engineers continue to test the new generation of the Citroen C4 Picasso, a prototype of which was snapped on camera in Spain ahead of a sales launch early next year.

The car seen here is wearing heavy camouflage but it looks like the French firm's designers have gone for a more hunkered down appearance and less egg-shaped silhouette than the current model.

Not long ago, we reported on the forthcoming, next generation of the Citroen C4 Picasso, which was scooped while undergoing winter testing in Europe. Now, our spies have caught up with two more prototypes of the French firm's popular compact minivan series.

Citroen Debuts New C-Elysee and C4 L Compact Sedans


Read more

Citroën is targeting the world's most populous automotive segment, the compact saloon market with some 20 million registrations in 2011 or close to a third of all worldwide passenger car sales, with not one but two new models, the C-Elysée and C4 L.

As you may have already guessed by now, the C-Elysée is the Citroën flavored version of Peugeot's budget compact sedan, the newly announced 301, with the two cars sharing the same body but bespoke fasicas, wheels and tail lamps.

The French brand says the C-Elysée will be manufactured in Spain and will be sold in Turkey, Spain, Central Europe and Algeria before the end of 2012.

The sedan model rides on a 2.65m long wheelbase and has large boot capacity of 506 litres. Depending on the market, the C-Elysée will be available with the latest generation VTi 97bhp petrol engine.

Citroën may have kissed its old ways goodbye when it comes to developing it cars (well, for the most part), but its eccentric designers from the 1970s and 1980s seem to have been put to work to create its official press site that has to be one of the quirkiest and unnecessarily complicated we've ever used.

But all's well that ends well and after more than an hour of cursing and clicking, we are now able to share with you 50 photos of the new Citroën C4 Aircross that will make its grand premier at next week's Geneva Motor Show.

The PSA Citroën-Peugeot may be facing some troubles in Europe due to the financial and budgetary crisis, but life goes on and Citroën is looking for ways to increase its sales with the presentation of new models in the mainstream categories.

After the introduction of the new generation of the C4 compact hatchback in 2010, the sub-premium DS4 last year and more recently, the Mitsubishi-based C4 Aircross, the French carmaker is now preparing another proposal for the popular C-segment, the C4 sedan.

The results of a collaborative project between two or more automotive partners can vary deeply, depending on how far the participating companies are willing to take the rebadging process.

For example, the differences between the original Fiat Doblo and GM's Opel Combo spinoff (a RAM variant will also be introduced in early 2013) are more or less limited to the design of their front bumpers.

The French PSA Peugeot Citroën group on the other hand, gave its designers a little more breathing room when it came to the development of its new compact SUVs / crossovers, the Peugeot 4008 and the Citroën C4 AIRCROSS.

New Citroen C4 AIRCROSS: PSA's Second Take on the Mitsubishi ASX


Read more

Is it sibling rivalry or pure coincidence? No matter: the PSA Peugeot Citroen Group unveiled today not one but two compact crossovers: the Peugeot 4008 and the Citroen C4 Aircross.

Both models are based on the Mitsubishi ASX and were created as part of an OEM agreement between the French automaker and it’s Japanese counterpart.

The differences between the two French models are purely cosmetic, with each variant featuring bespoke front and rear ends along with some other signature styling traits such as the Citroen's C-column trim.

Citroën Releases Teaser Photo of New C4 AIRCROSS

Citroën will soon add a new model to its range called the C4 AIRCROSS. For the time being, the French carmaker released a single teaser shot of the new car adding that the full reveal will follow next Friday.

Details remain slim, but there's a chance it could be a crossover-ish version of the C4 hatchback in the likes of the same named C3 AIRCROSSER that was unveiled last year for the South American market.

Say bonjour to Citroën's latest creation and the second member of its DS lineup of special models after the DS3, the all-new DS4 that was revealed online today ahead of its public premiere at next month's Paris Motor Show.

Based off the freshly revealed C4 hatchback (Citroën's rival to the VW Golf), the DS4 is the production version of the French carmaker's Geneva Salon DS High Rider concept car. The key difference between the two models is that, whereas the design study featured a three-door body style, the DS4 gets five-doors with hidden rear handles.

Citroën describes the DS4 as "a unique and attractive blend of creativity, dynamism, exclusivity and versatility", which in reality translates to a potpourri of design influences from numerous cars and segments ranging from the coupe-esque roofline and hidden rear door handles, to the almost crossover-like road clearance.
