Citroen has put up a timer on their website foretelling the imminent launch of a new model, but guesses are all over the place as to what that new model could be.

The French automaker's range has expanded in recent years to include everything from small hatchbacks to SUVs, with just about everything in between. Progressing up the range, among the possibilities considered are a "Streetlounge" version of the C3 supermini, a pseudo-Allroad/Outback version of the C4 hatch, a C5-based convertible previewed by the C-Airscape concept, and a new C8 minivan. While sometimes automakers give us a little teaser in the form of a veiled silhouette, all PSA is giving us here is a box with wheels. Our money is on some sort of automobile, possibly starting with the letter C.

We'll have to wait until the counter runs down to zero at 9 am on Wednesday (Paris time – 3 am in New York) to see what the Chevron marque has in store for our overseas compatriots.

      Stupid question:

      This is a flash page or something. Is it possible that the picture of the car is really there, and if someone can save the page, and open it in a editor, they could remove the curtain?

      It is the new Berlingo, there's a press release on their media site about it, dated 02/01/2008.

      I would add that the C2 and C3 use the same platform.

      Let's have a FRENCH supercar!!! Twin turbo V8 600 horsepower in what's lighter than a 911 that goes like mad!!!

      But then again, it's probably a tiny, 40mpg car with a 1 liter engine... *Sigh*

      The C3 is - and always was - a B-segment supermini, as is the C2 which is a 3-door only model.

      The C1 is an A-segment city car.

      The C3 is classed as a supermini now? What on earth does that make the C1 then?
        • 7 Years Ago
        Both C1 and C2 are classed as A-Segment car (micro cars).

        Whereas, C3 is classed as B-Segment car (A0-Segment in the US), which is the same as Polo/Fiesta/Yaris/207/Corsa/Clio/Micra...

        Maybe an Ultra-Supermini?

      It could also be the new Berlingo
