In the first quarter of 2017, Citroen will put on sale a renewed C-Elysee. The most important aspect changes are at the front of the vehicle where Citroen has installed daytime running lights and changed the bumpers, headlights and grille. On the back, the pilots retain the same way as the previous model, but the illumination pattern is different. There are also two new colors for the body and a new model of 16-inch diameter alloy wheels.
In the passenger compartment, the most important change comes from the possibility of installing two new multimedia systems with a touch screen of seven inches: “CITROÉN Connect Radio” and “CITROËN Connect Nav”. The first includes Bluetooth for mobile phone connection, support for communication systems Android Auto to Google and carplay Apple and a system of recognition of voice commands. The second adds to all of the above a navigation system with representation of buildings in three dimensions or access to the Internet for certain applications, such as real-time traffic information, weather forecasting or consulting the price of fuel at nearby gas stations.
There are also small changes in the dashboard, which can now have a larger screen between the speedometer and rev counter, and new decorative trim for the dashboard.
The range of engines remains unchanged and is composed of two gasoline -1.2 PureTech of 82 and VTi of 115 CV- and one diesel -BlueHDi 100-. All are associated with a manual gearbox five speeds, although more powerful version can also choose an automatic type torque converter and six relations.
Like the previous model, the C-Elysée is produced in the plant that Citroën has in Vigo (Spain), except the versions intended for the Chinese market, which are manufactured in Wuhan (China).
