Citroen C-XR Concept Previews Future Production SUV
Citroen C-XR Concept is a contemporary SUV that made a world premiere at this year's Beijing Motor Show. It is a preview of the first crossover developed jointly between Citroen and the DongFeng Motor Group. The vehicle is intended for production in China and offers compact styling with an assertive look combined with elegance and strength. It is also promised to deliver great fuel efficiency.
CX-R concept has wide chrome-finished grille that links the chevrons to the headlamps. In addition, at the front are featured LED daytime running lights that enhance the front light signature as well as front optics with double module and indicators. The C-shaped side signature links visually the roof bars and the chrome-finished waistline. At the rear, Citroen added 3D-effect rear lights. They were combined with a chrome-finished dual tailpipe.
Furthermore, the concept vehicle runs on 17-inch wheels fitted with All Seasons tyres. The front and rear fairings and wheel arch embellishers, red side décor and wing-mirror housings, round-out the look. Another detail is that the vehicle features the longest wheelbase in the segment measured at 2.65m, thus delivering in-car spaciousness. The large glass panoramic roof contributes towards soft filtered light inside.
Citroen C-XR Concept is fitted with Grip Control technology. This system manages optimal traction of the wheels on all types of ground. The concept is fitted with the THP 160 petrol engine that includes a Stop&Start function. The unit is coupled with the latest generation automatic gearbox. A key factor to the increased fuel and CO2 efficiency is the considerable weight savings.
