Citroën to unveil versatile New SpaceTourer in Geneva
The versatile New Citroën SpaceTourer will make its World Premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in March, where its ability to tackle the rigours of family and business life head-on, will be on display.
The SpaceTourer combines comfort, practicality and good looks with dynamic performance and remarkable fuel efficiency. Cutting edge technology and a new platform provide top-level safety and a user-friendly experience.Its new modular EMP2-based platform, a variant of the one used by the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso, provides more cabin space and boot volume, as well as superior manoeuvrability.
Available in three variants, including a 4.60m long model, a first in the market, which can seat up to nine people, the SpaceTourer is designed with both contemporary family and business life in mind. Features such as hands-free sliding side doors and a rear window that opens fully, are indicative of this practical vehicle.
The New Citroën SpaceTourer’s uncluttered and flowing styling instils a sense of robust assurance without appearing aggressive. The position of the wheels, together with very short overhangs, ensures maximisation of the
well-measured proportions of the vehicle and its spacious interior.
The front design consists of a short horizontally-styled bonnet with large, high-set headlights, providing a commanding view of the road.
In addition, the front features a broad, protective bumper with strong black air intake grilles that contrast and accentuate the SpaceTourer's styling. Vertical LED daytime running lights are seamlessly integrated with the fog lamps, giving the SpaceTourer a smart appearance but more importantly excellent illumination.
The side view of the SpaceTourer reveals the spacious interior with its wide sliding side doors and expansive glazed areas.
NEW PLATFORM: BETTER PERFORMANCE, MORE ROOM
The Citroën SpaceTourer is built on a new variant of the modular EMP2 platform used by the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso. It inherits the entire front part of that platform and all of its advantages in terms of the integration of latest generation powertrain components, such as the engine and gearbox. The rest of the platform was designed entirely for the SpaceTourer. There are new front and rear axles, which mean SpaceTourer is able to carry loads of up to 1,400kg.
CLASSIC CITROËN COMFORT FOR LONG JOURNEYS
The spacious and uncluttered interior of the Citroën SpaceTourer has been designed for long-distance journeys, ensuring each passenger benefits from the highest standards in terms of comfort and relaxation. With its multiple windows and large glass roof with blinds that can be closed separately in two sections, passengers can enjoy natural light flooding the interior of the vehicle.
The Citroën SpaceTourer is available with five powertrains, all featuring BlueHDi diesel engines. This new generation of engines, launched by Citroën in late 2013, considerably cuts nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions while reducing CO2 emissions thanks to an innovative exhaust line.
