Citroën to reveal SpaceTourer concept in Geneva

Citroën has announced that it will reveal its new SpaceTourer 4x4 Ë concept at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

The concept vehicle was inspired by Citroën's Ë lifestyle product range, which the company presented at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. The MPV has four-wheel drive, improved body protection and stylish external graphics.

The interior has been designed using with the Citroën Advanced Comfort programme, which the manufacturer says will promote well-being. The vehicle is intended for families or groups of friends engaging in leisure activities.

The SpaceTourer 4x4 Ë Concept is an MPV with off-road capabilities. It has front and rear protective skid plates and roof bars, as well as tyres with snow chains for when the going gets really rough.

The vehicle is available in three different body sizes – XS (pictured), M and XL, making it suitable for various needs. The XS version is 4.6 metres long and 1.9m wide. Despite having a raised body to serve its off-road abilities, the MPV is less than 2m high, so most height-restricted car parks should be accessible.

Behind the foot-operated automatic sliding doors is a spacious interior, with large windows designed to allow a lot of natural light in. The upholstery and dashboard feature red, white and blue colours to celebrate Citroën's French heritage.

The vehicle is powered by the BlueHDi 150 S&S diesel engine and has a six-speed manual gearbox. Other features include a new 3D navigation system, a seven-inch screen that replicates smartphone apps and a head-up display.
