Dongfeng Citroën has released preliminary details and images of their new C4 Sedan set to premiere tomorrow at the Chengdu Motor Show.

Looking rather Volkswagen-ish, the new three-box compact sedan tailored to the Chinese market has been developed locally where it will be exclusively available. At 4.55 meters in length, the new model serves as a replacement for the C-Quatre and will be slotted between the C-Elysee and C4 L. It will be assembled in Wuhan and represents a very important model for Dongfeng Citroën since its predecessor accounted for 30% of the joint venture's sales last year.

Technical details about the model are scarce at this moment, but Citroën's Chinese arm says it will be powered by a newly developed three-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine producing 130 PS (95 kW) sent to the front wheels through a manual gearbox or an optional automatic transmission. Inside the "spacious and comfortable" cabin will be a standard touchscreen display along with handsfree start & access as well as a blind spot monitoring system.

More details should be provided in the coming days following the C4 Sedan’s debut tomorrow at the 2015 Chengdu Motor Show.
