The bodywork is both harmonious and eye-catching, conveying a robust sense of presence with a high waistline, wide tracks and strong curving wings. The Citroën C-Elysée is available in a choice of seven body colours, with chrome detailing depending on the level of trim.
Inside the car, the elegant design is also perceptible to passengers. The executive-style dashboard features a neat strip in front of the front passenger. All materials were selected to be attractive, robust and easy to maintain.
