2010 Citroen C3 Hatchbacks Spied on the Road

What appears to be a convoy of camouflaged prototypes of the next generation Citroen C3 hatchback were caught on camera by a reader of the French car magazine, L'Auto-Journal. The low quality photos don't provide us with many details but the prototype's rear-end design suggests that the new C3 will maintain the basic lines of the current model.

Set to challenge the Ford Fiesta, Fiat Grande Punto, Renault Clio and their likes, Citroen's new supermini is expected to borrow several design cues from the C3 Picasso MPV as well as the more upscale DS3 Concept that is slated for production in early 2010.

All three Citroen models share the same architecture and engine range which includes a 1.6 HDi turbo diesel available in 90HP and 110Hp versions, and two gasoline units, a 1.4-liter with 95Hp and a 1.6-liter with 120Hp.

Though not officially confirmed, the new hatchback variant of the C3 is said to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September with European sales following in the next months.
