Speaking at the Irish launch of the car yesterday, Managing Director of Citroen Ireland Chris Graham said the designers had 'carte blanche' to make it stand out in a 'really busy segment'.
The 520L of luggage space with all seats in use is a greater than SUVs in the next segment up, he said.
There are two petrol engine options, an 82hp and a 110hp turbo, as well as a 100hp diesel. A full automatic version of the higher-powered petrol is also on offer. The distributors expect that 72pc of sales will be petrol.
