We’ve given Citroen some flak in the past for their conservative design methods, but all that seems to be a thing of the past now as the French automaker is preparing to reveal the new C4 Aircross crossover at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

Together with its sister model, the Peugeot 4008, the C4 Aircross represents a new chapter in Citroen’s design evolution. The C4 Aircross - and the 4008, for that matter - were both based on the Mitsubishi ASX Crossover, but the new C4 gets some design transformations on its own, including a new body panel, new trims, and plenty of different color options.

While official powertrain options have yet to be announced, Citroen is offering four different engines, including a 1.6-liter petrol that produces 115 horsepower, a 2.0-liter petrol engine that develops 150 horsepower, a 1.6-liter diesel engine that comes with 110 horsepower, and a 1.8-liter diesel engine that churns out 150 horsepower.

Further details behind the Citroen C4 Aircross will be revealed at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. For now, the French automaker has provided a slice of what’s in store courtesy of an extensive photo gallery.

Only its appearance seems to be tamed. Its going to be wild, once it performs.

Yes, they really looked conservative to me. Nevertheless, under the hood, it will tell the story about this C4.

The only non-conservative feats here are the headlamps and the wheel rims. Citroen remains conservative to me, even its power.

The head lamps are looking exotic while those tiny lights decorated on its front are like brightly illuminated pearls. It looks luxuriously big; my thought is the front is a misfit among its trunk and rear.

The new body panel and trims are terrific refinement! I also personally find the headlamps menacing.

I love it’s interior. It has a good quality. The front grille design is unclear, but the look is impressive.
