The 2011 Citroen C4 has been revealed on the web.

Set to go on sale next year, the redesigned hatchback features aggressive headlights, a bolder grille, and additional chrome accents. Out back, there's a roof-mounted spoiler, a classier rear bumper, and modern taillights.

Inside, the cabin boasts a massive steering wheel, metallic accents, and an improved center stack. Other goodies include a high-tech instrument cluster (which offers a variety of a setting), 408 liters of cargo capacity, and an eTouch system that monitors fuel consumption and driving habits. On the options list there are massaging front seats, a blind-spot monitoring system, and a panoramic sunroof.

Under the hood, we can expect the usual turbocharged petrols and HDi diesels. More importantly, Citroen will launch a C4 Hybrid with a 1.6-liter e-HDi diesel engine. While details are limited, the hybrid will feature regenerative braking, an engine stop/start system, and low-rolling resistance tires. Emissions are expected to be 109 g/km, but those numbers could fall to 99 g/km in more eco-friendly variants.

Look for more information to be released when the C4 is officially unveiled at the Paris Motor Show.
