PARIS -- Citroen has revealed photos of the new C4 compact hatchback, which has a full-electric version and will replace the C4 Cactus in the brand’s lineup later this year.
Citroen has given the new C4 a sloping rear roofline, a slightly higher stance, and “SUV traits” such as black wheel arches and lower body cladding and bumper inserts that suggest skid plates.
In April Citroen CEO Vincent Cobee said vehicle would "launch a new style identity" for the PSA Group subsidiary. "It will bring a new look to the segment," he added.
The new C4 is built on an extended version of PSA Group’s CMP platform, which up until now has been used only for small cars and SUVs such as the Peugeot 208, Opel/Vauxhall Corsa and DS 3 Crossback. The platform can accommodate gasoline, diesel or battery-electric drivetrains.
