Citroen Spacetourer 4x4 Ë Concept heading to Geneva

Citroen's Spacetourer MPV gets four-wheel-drive and distinctive design tweaks ahead of Geneva Motor Show

Citroen has revealed a new concept car set to make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show early next month in the form of the Spacetourer 4x4 Ë – a special version of its Spacetourer MPV boasting four-wheel-drive and some unique design tweaks.

With a 60mm taller ride height than the standard Spacetourer, the 4x4 Ë Concept uses a 148bhp HDI diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox to drive all four wheels through a selectable four-wheel-drive transmission developed by French drivetrain specialists Automobiles Dangel.

Much of the Spacetourer’s makeover with the 4x4 Ë Concept intends to emphasise the MPV’s four-wheel-drive system. It gets special skid plates front and rear, plus tough looking aluminium roof bars. It’s easy to spot the tyres wearing snow chains, alongside ‘4x4’ logos forming part of the car’s white and grey colour scheme with red decals.

While the Spacetourer is available in different body sizes, the Ë Concept is presented as a compact five-seat XS model.

In the cabin, the Spacetourer 4x4 Ë Concept’s five-seat interior gets subtle modifications and finishes marking it out as such. The red, white and blue colours running through the cabin space – such as the stitching on the seats and the finish on various pieces of trim – are inspired by Citroen’s ‘Ë’ lifestyle product range, explaining the Spacetourer 4x4 Ë’s name.

The seats themselves feature partial white leather backs and plus mottled leather and Alcantara upholstery. As for the dashboard, it’s finished in mottled grey, soft-to-the-touch fabric.

Technology highlights include a 3D sat nav system with voice controls, displayed through a 7-inch infotainment screen, alongside safety features such as lane departure warning, Active Safety Brake, and adaptive cruise control. We’ll get our first look plus more information at the Geneva Motor Show.

Does the 4x4 Ë Concept make Citroen's MPV van cool? Let us know in the comments.
