2014 Beijing Motor Show: Citroen C-XR Concept image

The Citroen C-XR Concept has been officially unveiled during the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, following some sketches released a couple of weeks ago.

Citroen is getting ready to introduce its own version of the Peugeot 2008 and the first step into this direction is being made with the C-XR Concept. The compact crossover was developed by Citroen and Dongfeng Motor Group and even if it looks like a production version, the final variant of the model is believed to suffer some minor changes before being ready to hit the market.

The new Citroen C-XR Concept has LED daytime running lights, a chromed front grille, 3D-effect taillights, two chromed exhaust pipes and 17-inch alloy wheels, wrapped in all-season tires. The model is riding on a 2.65 meter long wheelbase which is the longest in the segment, offering a lot of rear legroom. Power is provided by a THP gasoline burner, with a stop/start system, mated to an automatic transmission which is sending power to the front-wheel drive. The Grip Control system found on the DS 6WR has been installed in order to compensate the lack of AWD. The final production version of the model is believed to make its way onto the market by the end of this year or even in 2015.
