2008 Citroën C-Elysee
Citroën unveiled a new model, the C-Elysée, in Beijing on 8 April 2008. Based on the Elysée, the newcomer benefits from numerous upgrades in terms of styling, quality and technology.
The C-Elysée strengthens the range of models produced in China by Dong Feng Peugeot Citroën Automobiles (DPCA), consisting of the C2, Fukang, Xsara Picasso and C-Triomphe. The range is rounded out by the C4 Coupé, C5 saloon and C6, imported from Europe.
The C-Elysée is immediately recognisable as a new-generation Citroën with its expressive, modern-looking front end.
At the reveal press conference, Yves Moulin, Managing Director of Dongfeng Citroën, said that 300 improvements had been made to the C-Elysée, all of which can be perceived by the customer.
The new range features three trim levels and five versions, fitted with the 1.6i 16V engine. The C-Elysée will be launched following its public debut at the Beijing Motor Show on 24 April.
