CitroŽn just couldn't wait until this fall's Paris Salon to show us the all-new C4 five-door hatchback as the French automaker decided to release the first official photos of its C-segment model. The new compact hatch will take on the likes of the VW Golf, Renault Megane, Ford Focus, Opel Astra and Toyota Auris.

Even though the new C4 shares the same front end styling with the three-door DS High Rider, which is expected to enter production almost unchanged as the DS4 next year, the two variants differ in design from the A-Column to the back.

Inside, the cabin boasts a massive steering wheel, metallic accents, and an improved center stack. Other goodies include a high-tech instrument cluster (which offers a variety of a setting), 408 liters of cargo capacity, and an eTouch system that monitors fuel consumption and driving habits. On the options list, there are massaging front seats, blind-spot monitoring system, and panoramic sunroof. Other changes over the outgoing C4 includes the elimination of the fixed steering wheel hub as well as the centrally mounted LCD instrument panel.

CitroŽn's new compact model has grown in dimensions and now measures 4,330mm in length (+55mm), 1,790m in width (+17mm) and 1,490mm in height (+32mm). The French automaker has yet to release details on the powertrain options. But aside from a usual mix of diesel and naturally aspirated / turbocharged petrol units found on the current C4, European buyers should also expect the first application of the PSA Citroen - Peugeot group's e-HDi diesel-electric hybrid system.

The new C4 is expected to go on sale in most European countries after this fall's Paris Motor Show.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
