Citroen has pulled two new models from its box of tricks, revealing the C-Elysée - teased earlier this year - and the C4 L small sedan.

Both cars have been developed for overseas markets, and if they both look a little familiar, there's good reason.

In the case of the C-Elysée, Citroen has utilised the same platform and components that make up partner Peugeot's new 301 sedan.

Like the Peugeot, the C-Elysée will be marketed as an affordable small car for left-hand-drive markets, launching in Spain, Central Europe, Turkey and Algeria later this year.

While the C-Elysée is mostly identical to the 301 between the A and C pillars, Citroen has given its version of the car the familiar chevron grille, along with unique bumpers, headlights, taillights and front quarter panels.

The second new model brings more of Citroen's own design language to the table, with styling cues taken both from the regular C4 hatch and from the upmarket DS4 crossover.

Like the C-Elysée - and unlike the C4 and DS4 hatches - the C4 L will not be sold in Australia.

Designed primarily for China, where buyers prefer sedans to hatches, the C4 L was designed in Shanghai and comes with the added benefit of a longer wheelbase and more legroom in the backseat - another preference of the Chinese buyer.

The C4 L will also be sold in Russia, and each market will have the car built at local plants.
