Citroen has released the first official pictures of the new Citroen C-Elysee for the Chinese car market. The new C-Elysee debuted in China on the Shanghai Auto Show in April and it will hit the market in the second half of July.


The new C-Elysee is made by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture. Price will start around 80.000 yuan and ends around 110.000 yuan. Power will come from a 1.6 with 114hp and 150nm, mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic. A 1.8 and a 1.2 turbo will be added to the line-up later.

The current C-Elysee, which is based on the first generation Citroen ZX, will continue yet again as the ‘C-Elysee Classic’, priced around 60.000 yuan.


The C-Elysee is basically the same car as the new Peugeot 301 which will be made by Dongfeng-PSA as well. The C-Elysee and 301 will compete head-to-head with the new Volkswagen Jetta, the new Volkswagen Santana, the new Skoda Rapid and the upcoming Guangzhou Auto GA3.


Size: 4430/1700/1470, wheelbase is 2650.
