French automaker unveils a new SUV/crossover based on the C4 C-segment hatchback.

In concert with sister brand Peugeot's 4008 unveiling today, Citroën has also unveiled the new C4 Aircross - a compact SUV based on the Mitsubishi ASX platform.

The stylish crossover continues Citroën's current strategy of creating more variants out of each model, particularly for the DS-line sub-brand. The C4 Aircross comes with 18-inch wheels and will be offered as both a 2WD and 4WD.

Powering the Citroën C4 Aircross will be, on the diesel side, the HDi 110 and HDi 150, with a 1.6 liter unit developing 110 PS (82 kW / 109 hp) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft), and a 1.8 liter unit producing 150 PS (110 kW / 148 hp) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque, respectively. Both those diesels are offered with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. On the petrol side, there's the 1.6i with 115 PS (85 kW / 114 hp) 152 Nm (112 lb-ft) of torque, which comes with a five-speed manual, and a 2.0i 150 that will be sold only in markets outside of Europe. 

The Citroën C4 Aircross will go on sale in the first half of 2012.
