Unveiled C- at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show, the C-XR Concept previews a SUV model to be developed jointly between Citroën and the DongFeng Motor Group.


The C-XR Concept adopts the current design language of the DS and Citroën model line-up applying it to the SUV layout and combining it with a number of elements typical of the segment, including wheel arch platic protections, roof rails and front and rear underbody protections.

At the front, the wide chrome-finished grille links the chevrons to the headlamps, which include a double module and indicators and LED daytime running lights.

The C-shaped side signature provides a visual link between the roof bars and a chrome-finished waistline, while the 3D-effect rear lights are combined with a chrome-finished dual tailpipe.

The C-XR Concept features an ideal width-to-height ratio (1.79m x 1.56m), while the compact body length –  limited to 4.26m for agility – is combined with a wheelbase of 2.65m, the longest in the segment, which increases the interior comfort especially for the rear passengers.

The interior features a raised driving position and a large glass panoramic roof which floods the cabin with soft, filtered light.

The Citroën C-XR Concept is powered by a THP 160 gasoline engine coupled with an automatic gearbox. Among the technical features is the Grip Control technology, which combined with the All Seasons tires,  manages optimal traction of the wheels on all types of ground without resorting to a four-wheel-drive system that would increase fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
