The new Citroen C-Elysee is practicing to be pretty for its debut tomorrow on the Shanghai Auto Show. The sleek silver vehicle was seen unattended on the unfinished Citroen booth on the show floor.
The new C-clysee will be made by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture and will replace the current c-Elysee that is based on the first generation Citroen ZX. The new c-Elysee is identical to the new Peugeot 301, which will be made in China as well.
B-pillar loox kinda odd, likely slightly stretched there to create more space in the back. The new C-Elysee will be powered by a new 1.6 liter MPI engine with 114hp, mated to a 5-speed manual or CVT. A 1.8 and possibly a 1.6 turbo are expected to become available next year. The new C-Elysee will compete directly with the Volkswagen Jetta and Volkswagen Santana.
Some stylish little lines above the rear light make an otherwise rather boring design just a bit better.
