Citroën’s DongFeng collaborative


CITROËN has unveiled its C-XR SUV concept at the Beijing Auto Show. The model is a joint development between Citroën and the DongFeng Motor Group. The model will enter a segment that saw nearly three million sales in 2013, up 50% on 2012.

The SUV features design elements such as a chrome-finished grille that links the chevrons to the headlamps, LED daytime running lights, front optics featuring a double module and indicators and 3D-effect rear lights combined with chrome-finished dual tailpipes.

The concept also features raised ground clearance with large 17-inch wheels shod with All Seasons tyres. It is 1 790mm wide, 1 560mm high and 4 260mm long, meaning that it is a proper-sized SUV with space for rear occupants. There is also a panoramic roof to add to the interior’s spacious feel.

The model will feature Citroën’s Grip Control technology that 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.The concept’s powertrain combines a THP 160(115kW) petrol engine with Stop&Start and a latest-generation automatic gearbox that delivers enjoyable performance with reduced fuel consumption.
