An image of Citroen’s new C4 Concept has been leaked – it features styling inspired by the eye-catching C4 Cactus

An image of Citroen’s new C4 Concept gives us an idea of what the production model could look like. This image, courtesy of Ferdfanpage, shows the new model with styling that echoes the firm’s C4 Cactus.

The new C4, right, could look radically different to the car it replaces, pictured on the left

2019 Citroen C4 styling

The C4 Concept borrows some of the design seen on the C5 Aircross such as a large front grille divided into two sections and futuristic upper LED daytime running lights. Its body now shares more in common with a crossover SUV – moving away from the previous model’s understated hatchback design. The LED lighting signatures are framed by two thin horizontal silver strips that form the Citroen logo in the centre.

While the car looks similar to the current C4 Cactus, it sits lower and doesn’t feature the unique ‘Airbump’ plastic mouldings that protect the Cactus’ doors in car parks. The concept pictured here features a black contrasting roof – a feature that’s likely to make it to production models to allow a greater degree of customer personalisation.

The next C4’s cabin could look similar to the C5 Aircross’, pictured here

2019 Citroen C4 interior

The car’s cabin could feature a pair of high-resolution displays. A digital display behind the steering wheel should replace the conventional gauges found in the current C4 interior, while the infotainment system should take the form of a smaller eight-inch touchscreen system sat in the centre of the dashboard.

Passengers should be treated to lashing of soft-touch materials throughout the cabin while leather upholstery will be available higher up in the range. The interior design should be mostly uncluttered with most on board features controlled via the touchscreen infotainment system with separate controls for the heating and air con.

The next C4 could share a similar silhouette to the current C4 Cactus, pictured here

2019 Citroen C4 engines

Entry-level diesels could come in the form of a 1.6-litre unit producing 75, 100 or 120hp, while a more powerful 2.0-litre diesel option could also be available offering 148hp and 178hp. The petrol range should feature a frugal 110hp 1.2-litre petrol motor – capable of returning 57mpg in the current C4 engine – while a more powerful 130hp version also offered. All engines should be fitted with a manual gearbox as standard, while a six-speed automatic option could also be offered on higher-end models.

We expect the next C4 to feature a similar rear to the C5 Aircross, pictured here

2019 Citroen C4 price and release date

Citroen hasn’t revealed any concrete details about the upcoming C4 but we’re expecting to see the concept in the metal in late 2017, with the car going on sale late 2018. It’s not expected to deviate far from the outgoing C4’s pricing so should cost from around £18,000 for entry-level cars, with top-spec variants setting you back around £25,000.
