Citroen was caught testing the upcoming Citroen C4 wagon in hot weather recently. The car is said to be one of the largest wagons in the compact five-door class.

Evident by the long wheelbase and high rear end, the C4 wagon apparently has a 408-litre boot capacity, although no official details have been released to confirm this.

Heavily wrapped up in camouflaging, the front A-pillars seem to be divided into two pieces, possibly incorporating a window so the driver can 'see through' the blind spot.

The side mirrors are also said to implement blind spot monitoring technology and use sensors mounted in the mirror surround to warn the driver of any blind spot movement.

A hybrid engine will be an option for the new generation model, and it will use stop/start technology, possibly emitting less than 109 grams of CO2 per kilometre.

The Citroen C4 wagon would go up against other European rivals; the Peugeot 308 Touring, Volkswagen Golf wagon and also the Hyundai i30cw to a certain extent.

The Citroen C4 wagon is expected to go on sale here in Australia some time in the middle of next year, priced at around the current retail of $26,990.
