It’s not the most slimmest, lightest or prettiest of iPhone 4 cases but if you the kind of person who drops, steps on, drives over, kicks or throws your iPhone you’ll probably want the Case Mate TANK case covering it up. Boasting the tag ‘Military Garde’ the TANK case is made from a polycarbonate hard shell with silicone cushioned interior, a shutter like retractable cover shields the LCD screen from impacts, cracking and condensation and the exterior has a soft touch which slides easily in and out of pockets and bags.

There is seating for 9 people but the second three rows can be folded down to make a bed. There’s no word on specifications, but Citroën says the van is “intelligent” and “eco-friendly” so expect a hybrid or electric powertrain.
