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.
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.
