The 2013 Citroen C-Elysee comes as the model's second generation, continuing the car's ten-year legacy. The new model extends an established compact car sold on the international market in large quantities.

From the previous generation, the gasoline engine lineup is completed by including the new VTi 115 engine, which can be paired with either a manual or automatic gearbox. The Citroen C-Elysee offers the HDi 92 as well, a well-established diesel engine with over six million units produced. This engine combines the advantages of a road car, such as high torque at low engine speeds, with impressive fuel efficiency.

Also, the vehicle comes equipped with the new VTi 72 gasoline engine, which has been specifically designed to meet the driving conditions and fuel requirements of international markets. It focuses on optimizing performance and achieving better fuel economy than the 1.4-liter engine it replaces.

The vehicle's design is based on the three main compartments, as they are clearly separated but at the same time integrated into the body as a whole. The rounded wings give the car a wider stance highlighting the spacious interior.

Even if it is redesigned, the front grille clearly integrates the model into the brand's family, making the distinctive logo look like it stretches between the headlights. The car comes in seven different colors and can optionally have chrome insertions.

For a better adaptation to the conditions in the countries where it is sold, the 2013 C-Elysee has some structural upgrades. It's being built to have appropriate ground clearance and is equipped with the right tires while having certain body parts reinforced to ensure a proper driving experience. For improved safety, the car can also have improved under-body protection.

The interior of the car is based on efficiency and practicability. The materials used are chosen to be attractive but also easy to care for, bearing in mind the vehicle's robust design.

When discussing the interior dimensions, the primary focus lies on the generous legroom it provides. Among its class, the back seats stand out for offering exceptionally comfortable space. Despite the increased interior size, the cargo space remains unaffected, as the trunk ranks among the largest in the compact segment of the vehicle.

The technological advance sees the vehicle come equipped as standard in some countries with features like a digital display, rear parking sensors, and a cruise control function. There are optional features that enhance the comfort and accessibility of the Citro├źn, such as a touch-screen GPS and a reversing camera.

Depending on the country's climate where it is sold, additional features like a heated windshield and upgraded air conditioning can be equipped to provide a tailored driving experience and further increase the global popularity of the model.
