The company revealed today that its heavily revamped C4 Cactus will temporarily take the place of the C4, which rivals the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra, until an all-new model is ready for production in 2020 or 2021.
“The current C4 is a seven-year-old design and we had to make a decision. We will stop production and the C4 Cactus will take its place,” said Xavier Peugeot, product planning boss.
The significantly revamped C4 Cactus (pictured below) goes into production later this year and right-hand-drive cars arrive in March or April 2018.
Citroën is already looking at the design and engineering of the car that will succeed the C4 Cactus, which will only be on sale for three to four years in its re-engineered form.
“We see an opportunity to do something fresh and different with the new C4 in three to four years time,” added Peugeot.
