Volkswagen Golf hatchback

Most noticeably, the Golf's nose now looks somewhat lower and sleeker, helped by slim LED headlights and an unfussy lower grille that does away with separate fog lights in favour of a wide opening. There are new VW badges and 'Golf' lettering now sits on a sharper boot, flanked by intricately designed light clusters.

Citroën will launch a new electric compact hatchback this year as an indirect replacement to the C4 and C4 Cactus, alongside five more electrified models. Product boss Laurence Hansen said the zero-emissions hatchback will have “assertive styling” and offer the ultimate Citroën Advanced Comfort.

The electric grand tourer , which will share a platform with the Porsche Taycan, is expected to make its production debut towards the end of the year. It has clever packaging that makes the most of available space , while the underlying powertrain promises to deliver as much as 754bhp and a

Citroën will launch six electrified models this year, including a new electric compact hatchback that will be an indirect replacement to the C4 and C4 Cactus.

Product boss Laurence Hansen said the next-generation zero-emission hatch will have assertive design and offer the ultimate Citro​ën Advanced Comfort. Alongside the electric model, petrol and diesel variants will also be offered.

There will also be a fully electric space tourer arriving by the end of the year, but no more details have yet been revealed.

The rest of the electrified range will be the quirky two-seat Ami, revealed today, the already-announced C5 Aircross plug-in hybrid offering 34 miles of electric-only range, plus two electric vans. Hansen said the vans will be the “perfect solution for last-mile delivery”.

Citroen C4 Cactus replacement spotted for the first time

  Citroen C4 Cactus replacement spotted for the first time All-new C-segment model will be unveiled later this year, with petrol, diesel and electric variantsTipped to be revealed in the latter part of this year before going on sale at the start of 2021, the newly developed model will sit on the PSA Group’s CMP architecture, allowing it to be the first in its class to offer petrol, diesel and battery electric powertrain options. Former Citroën CEO Linda Jackson confirmed this last year.

SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept features a 4WD conversion, protection equipment and graphic components inspired by the Ë collection. Motorists can open and close the doors with their hands full and comfortably access the Citroën SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept.

It seems like Citroen compromised the rear seats in order to make the room usefully large. The luggage capacity of 580 litres with the seats up places this ahead of most of its SUV-shaped rivals, and this extends to 720 litres if you slide the seats forwards. Fold them flat and that increases to 1,630 which is

She continued: “In 2020, we launch a major product offensive in terms of electrified vehicles. Silence and comfort are today’s luxuries and these cars will be a great answer to that.”

New Citro​ën CEO Vincent Cobee, who recently replaced Brit Linda Jackson, added: “When you are Citro​ën and you are already a reference in comfort - riding, seating, sound insulation - electrification is much more than a regulatory obligation. It’s an opportunity to progress another level in terms of comfort in transport.”

The French maker will offer an electrified version of every model by 2025. Citro​ën sold 830,000 vehicles in Europe last year, an increase of one percent year-on-year.
