The Xsara's replacement has arrived, well ahead of its scheduled Paris Motor Show introduction this September. Striking coupe and hatchback body styles display outstanding aerodynamics in order to help keep fuel consumption low, with the hatch sporting a rounded back end, and the coupe tapering to more of a point. The C4's technological innovations are manifold: a lane-departure warning system to alert drivers when they are inadvertently drifting out of their lane, dynamic xenon lights that turn with the car to better light up corners, and a scented air freshener built into the dash. The C4 will be powered by a range of gas and diesel engines, rating at anywhere between 90-hp and 180-hp. If the C4 follows the Xsara's footsteps exactly, you can expect the car to enter WRC competition next season.
