As the French automaker remembered recently of its innovative past, getting something odd from the carmaker has become the norm – so here’s the SpaceTourer 4×4 Ë Concept.
It’s coming to life in time for the Geneva Motor Show in March and brings yet another quirky iteration of the recently fashionable double chevron brand. It’s part minivan part crossover – a rugged all-wheel-drive MPV designed for very active people that also like higher ground clearance that is usable to tackle difficult roads. Citroen has modified the production SpaceTourer to be 60 millimeters (2.3 inches) higher and even comes in XS, M, and XL sizes to make sure even larger families or groups of friends can reach the oudoor.
The white on grey camouflage pattern and red accents version is the smallest and comes at 4.6-meters long and 1.9-meter tall. A close sibling of the Peugeot Traveller and Toyota Proace in its real life, the concept SpaceTourer also comes with foot-operated hands-free sliding doors for easy access. The Geneva concept will feature a five-seat layout with individual front seats. Under the hood there’s a turbodiesel 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine packing 150 horsepower (112 kilowatts) and 370 Newton-meters (273 pound-feet) of torque – and the transmission features AWD and a six-speed manual.
