The unhealthy addiction of our (and not only) compatriots to compact sedans has for some time been met with understanding by automakers. In this format, Renault, Volkswagen and Hyundai have already developed and release their models for our market. Now PSA Peugeot Citroen is also planning to join them, which is preparing a completely new model for production - the Citroen ID sedan (internal index M43). The novelty is already undergoing road tests, which indicates its close readiness for production. Actually, this fact was also confirmed by the PSA CEO in Russia, Jean-Louis Shamla, who said that production of the sedan will start at the company's Kaluga plant before the end of this year. And the official premiere of the new items should take place even earlier - in the first half of the year.
“Face”, the new sedan will most likely look like the latest generation Citroen C4 hatchback. However, there will be enough differences - one of the main ones will be the “wave” of side embossing in the area of the front wings, similar to that of the latest DS5 (pictured below) “Face”, the new sedan will most of all look like the latest generation Citroen C4 hatchback.

The most likely candidate for installation under the hood of the Citroen ID is the 1.6-liter VTi 120 petrol engine developed jointly with BMW.

It is worth recalling that the model with the alphabetic index ID once was already present in the production program of the French company - it was a cheaper version of the famous "goddess" DS. Citroen has now transformed the DS designation into a sub-brand, which includes premium models. Having drawn historical parallels, many decided that the Citroen ID sedan would become a budget model designed to compete with Renault Logan. However, to our knowledge, the new product will not belong to the low-cost segment. Indirectly, this fact confirms the intricate design of the car. Just look at these bizarre shapes in the style of the latest DS4 and DS5 models! Agree, it’s completely unlike simple “chopped” body panels of the ultra-budget Logan! So what models the new Citroen ID will compete with depends primarily on its size and capacity. And here, as they say, options are possible. It seems to us that in the first place the car will try to squeeze Volkswagen Polo, Hyundai Solaris and Kia Rio sedans on the market. That is, the estimated price range of the new items is from 400, 000 to 600, 000 rubles.
