Today marks the launch of Citroën’s brand-new C-ELYSÉE , a saloon earmarked for the international market.


The Citroën CITROËN C-ELYSÉE is packed with the Brand’s know-how and expertise. Primarily designed for international markets, its styling and features make it the ideal choice for customers seeking a prestigious yet affordable saloon.It has gone on to be the Brand’s best-seller on major markets, selling more than 400,000 units worldwide to date.

The C-ELYSÉE’s commercial success in key markets comes on the back of its stunning performances in the FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC). Citroën has taken a clean sweep in the last three years, with three Manufacturers’ championship titles and three Drivers’ championship wins under its belt. The pioneering CITROËN C-ELYSÉE WTCC has earned a sterling reputation and paved the way for a fresh sporting challenge, as the new Citroën C3 looks to take on the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC).









The CITROËN C-ELYSÉE is a visually appealing and finely poised saloon, epitomising the very best of the three-box body shape. The latest version has had a full makeover, with a new bumper that reflects the hallmark styling found on other Citroën saloons destined for the international market. The result is a more robust, wider model that exudes prestige.

The new, broader radiator grill and chrome-plated chevrons blend seamlessly into the redesigned headlights, which are larger than on the previous model and come with two modern-looking chrome-plated spots. The unbroken lines between the radiator grill and the headlights create an illusion of extra width, reinforced by the horizontal air inlet at the bottom of the bumper and the redesigned fog lights. The result is a car that is both more poised in appearance and safer to drive. The brand-new LED lighting strip above the fog lights adds to the model’s visual appeal and prestige.









When viewed from the rear, the new C-Elysée boasts 3D-effect lights that chime with the Brand’s hallmark styling, making the car appear wider and adding a touch of elegance. The 16” wheels come with two new features – a two-tone “3D” hubcap and “San Diego” alloy rims with diamond-effect finish – that echo the new front-end styling, inject renewed energy into the model’s look and reinforce the contrast of the body shape. The updated C-Elysée is available in two new, more modern body colours – Lazuli Blue replaces Teles Blue, while Aluminium Grey gives way to Steel Grey.









Inside, the luxurious dashboard features a decorative strip on the passenger side that reflects the chosen trim. The interior materials are elegant, hardwearing and extremely easy to clean. The dashboard has been redesigned to accommodate the new 7” touchscreen interface, bringing the new CITROËN C-ELYSÉE up to date with the latest cutting-edge technology. The instrument cluster boasts bold, visually appealing dials that enhance the driver’s experience. Luxury models come with a new white-back panel between the two dials, showing driving information.
