Spied: 2012 Citroen C4 Estate

Citroen has loaded up the C4 Estate! The French firm will pull the wraps off its all-new Ford Focus-rivalling C4, stylish DS4 and facelifted C4 Picasso range at the Paris Motor Show. But that hasn’t stopped bosses giving the green light to a practical estate version of the C4 too.

Our spies captured the first pictures of the practical addition to the range hot weather testing in a very comprehensive disguise. However, expect the estate to feature the same handsome new look as the regular C4 hatchback from the bottom of the windscreen forwards.

From there back, the estate gains a gently curving roofline to give a more dynamic appearance, and a short rear overhang to reduce the car’s bulk. However, despite the design flair, boot space is expected to be around 500-litres, to compete against the 482-litres offered by the Ford Focus Estate, and 505-litres of the VW Golf Estate.

The engine range is carried over from the C4 range, including 1.6-litre petrol and diesel units, and a range-topping 2.0-litre diesel. The 1.6-litre diesel HDi unit will be offered with the firm’s new e-HDi stop start system and regenerative alternator, which cuts carbon dioxide emissions to around 110g/km for the Estate.

Expect the latest addition to the C4 range to make its debut next year, most likely at the Geneva Motor Show in March, before going on sale in the summer. For more details click here.
