A new picture of the mysterious concept car picture is released by Citroen

Citroen has released a second teaser image of its new mystery concept car, which will be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show next Tuesday.

The first teaser image was shown on Facebook last week and it appeared with the title "Nouveau C3" - but is not the standard version of the new C3 or the DS3, both of which have already been revealed. No new details have been released with the new picture.

However, it appears that the concept showcases a small city car project, possibly previewing the styling of the next Citroen C1.

Citroen is also known to be pushing ahead with bringing hybrid technology to the market, and this could also be highlighted by the concept.

The first Citroen production cars to go on sale with hybrid powertrains will be the larger DS models, the DS4 and DS5. They will use the same hybrid system as Peugeot, which will launch the technology first, on its hybrid 3008.

Surely it's a modern-day interpretation of the 2CV?!?!?! Considering it's their 90th Anniversary, too. Looking forward to seeing it!

Could it be the next C3 Pluriel? Its to be hoped they do replace it within the new C3 range. There arent nearly enough cheap convetibles and even if the current car isnt that good, it would still be a shame if they didnt replace it.

Something smaller within the DS range - DS1 or DS2?

It's an upside down pram!

    New S5 Sportback is more spacious, better to drive and offers a calmer ride than before, but rivals offer greater involvement
  • Renault Clio RS 220 Trophy

    Mildly revised hot hatch is enjoyable on UK roads but continues to play second fiddle to the Ford Fiesta ST

    Mechanical upgrades make the Smart Fortwo Brabus cabrio better to drive, but it’s too pricey to recommend
  • Citroen C3 1.2 Puretech 82

    14 October 2016
    Not a class leader objectively, but the C3's funky good looks and a swish interior give it subjective appeal. Needs the more powerful petrol, though
  • BMW M140i
    First Drive
    13 October 2016
    Rear-drive balance, a smooth six-pot motor and a beautifully judged eight-speed gearbox: the M140i is as rewarding as the car it replaces
