Citroen unveils next-generation C4

Citroen has released the first pictures of the second-generation version of its Golf-sized C4, which will be displayed at September's Paris Motor Show, in line with the recent trend for car manufacturers to trail new models well in advance of their launches, rather than springing genuine surprises. The new car won't go on sale in the UK until early next year.
