Citroën added to the C4 Cactus-a new crossover to fight against the Nissan Qashqai and the SEAT Ateca

What are the plans of Citroen to the next few years? From France come to us important news. Extremely important. Citroën and Peugeot have a tough task ahead, to cover the bulk of the european market and avoiding direct confrontation. The Citroën C4 Cactus is the best example of that strategy, a product difficult to classify, a product perhaps of those that you love or hate, but capable of attracting customers interested in products of brands and segments very different. The good news is that Citroën has just announced the launch in 2018 of a new compact crossover, mode of replacement of the Citroën C4 Aircross. A product that is called to compete directly with the Nissan Qashqai and the new SEAT Ateca. What else do we know of this release?

His name has not yet been announced. Just know that the doors to the inside refer to it as the project C84. We also know that its dimensions are compact, in both will use the new platform EMP2 PSA Group, the same as that used Peugeot 308, Citroën C4 Picasso and DS 4.

This model is interesting, as it will arrive with greater ambition than the Citroën C4 Aircross, and complementing a product so original, and to some extent transgressive, such as the Citroën C4 Cactus. And in a moment the Peugeot 3008, the response of her sister Peugeot, will already be in showrooms.


for More details. In France, you can be satisfied, according to the project C84 will involve the investment of 100 million euros in the production of the French factories.

And that is the new crossover will be manufactured in the factory in Rennes, sharing the line with the Citroën E-Mehari and the Peugeot 5008. So that the factory Rennes will increase its production, throughout 2018, of the 60,000 units are produced each year in these moments up to 100,000 units per year. The adaptation of the factory will start in a few months, at the beginning of 2017, so that in 2018 it will launch the manufacture of this product.
