Citroen to debut SpaceTourer Concept in Geneva

A new 'SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept' will be unveiled by Citroen at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

The new design is inspired by the brand’s own “Ë” lifestyle product range, which was presented at last year's Paris Motor Show. The Concept embodies Citroen’s ‘unique spirit’ and features a 4x4 drivetrain, enhanced body protection with new external graphics and offers a combination of off-road ability, versatility and comfort. The interior remains true to the Citroen Advanced Comfort programme and ‘promotes well-being’ according to the French brand.

An up-to-date take on the SpaceTourer, the concept enhances the existing strengths of the production model and offers 'elegant styling' and a unique design, with class-leading technologies for all types of terrain. Designed for most driving conditions, and powered by the BlueHDi 150 S&S diesel engine with a 6-speed manual gearbox, the concept is equipped with a selectable 4x4 transmission from Automobiles Dangel, a ‘well-known’ French all-terrain specialist. The drivetrain offers 4x4 traction, with Auto 4WD and R Lock settings via a control wheel on the dashboard.

With a high-set driving position, boot access is enhanced by the opening rear window in the tailgate. Cabin access is via two foot operated hands-free sliding side doors. Occupants are treated to 74-litres of storage space located around the cabin, including the glove box and door bins. There is also sufficient space in the back to house a snowboard, leisure accessories or other items from the "Ë" collection. The concept car has a load volume of up to two cubic metres in this five-seat layout.

The Geneva Motor show runs from opens to the public on 9 March, running until 19 March, 2017.
