Citroen C4 AirCross caught on the street

Days after the Peugeot 4008 caught pounding on the street, its blood cousin Citroen C4 AirCross has been spied too. While the looks are no longer a secret, this is the first time the PSA SUV is seen in the real street.
The Citroen version of Mitsubishi ASX adopts a typical Citroen face, with prominent radiator grille incorporating the double chevron emblem. In this application, the turn indicator is nestled within the grille. The headlight is what expected of Citroen of the late, with intricate housing design, with continuous character line running from the radiator grille bottom surface, continues to bend down, aligned with the vertical bumper cut-out which housed the vertical LED DRL. Low mounted fog lamps looks like they are shared with its PSA cousin, the 4008.
The side profile has no surprise element. The staggered D-pillar of Pug 4008 is retained, albeit with chrome badging split the pillar into upper and lower portion. The side outer panel is identical with the PSA cousin, but the shape of the rear combi has been altered via different bumper profile. The rear combi has a "sideburn" on its outer edge. Chrome element garnish is featured at the rear too. More after the jump.
The rear bumper is different from the Peugeot 4008. This is not a surprise as the rear light design is completely different between the two. While there's no interior photo spied, we expect it to be similar to the Peugeot 4008, that is stay truthful to its Japanese Mitsu ASX design.

The drivetrain combo is expected to be similar with PSA group of car. In this application, the choice will be gasoline version with 1.6L producing 114bhp and 152Nm and 2.0L producing 148bhp and 198Nm of power and torque respectively. Standard transmission is 5 speed manual.

The diesel version range starts from 1.6 HDi (109bhp/270Nm) and 1.8 HDi (148bhp/300Nm). Both will be paired with standard 6 speed manual gearbox.
