CITROËN SPACETOURER 4X4 Ë CONCEPT: LIVING A LIFE OF ADVENTURE IN STYLE
Citroën will unveil a new concept vehicle at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show – SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept. The new design is inspired by the brand's own 'Ë' lifestyle product range, which was presented at last year's Paris Motor Show. The SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept embodies Citroën's unique spirit and features a 4x4 drivetrain, enhanced body protection and new external graphics. Its unique interior is true to the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme and promotes well-being. SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept is a stylish, practical and contemporary mode of transport for the modern day adventurer.
With only a few weeks to go until the Geneva Motor Show, Citroën has revealed the SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept, a contemporary vehicle wîth an uncompromising combination of off-road ability, versatility and comfort. The new concept is an up-to-date take on the SpaceTourer, uniquely inspired by Citroën's 'Ë' collection of limited edition lifestyle products.
Enhancing the existing strengths of the production model, the SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept offers elegant styling and a unique design, wîth class-leading technologies for all types of terrain – including an all-wheel-drive transmission developed by Automobiles Dangel.
Citroën SpaceTourer 4x4 Ë Concept is designed for well-being, wîth adventurous styling that evokes vitality, making it ideal for families or groups of friends lòòking to enjoy leisure activities in style.AN ENERGETIC DESIGN WITH NEW GRAPHICS

Boasting all the best features of large MPVs and SÚVs, the design emphasises the concept car's all-terrain abilities. The SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept is equipped wîth special front and rear protective skid plates and roof bars wîth a satin aluminium finish. Recognisable wîth its '4X4' logo under the door mirrors and on the tailgate, the 4x4 concept also features tyres wîth snow chains.
To visually boost its personality, the SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept is cloaked in a special white paint and a striking grey camouflage design wîth red decals. Touches of the same red colour can also be seen on the snow chains.
Available in several body sizes (XS, M and XL) to meet the needs of families and professionals alike, the SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept is presented as a compact XS version, designed for top-level functionality and versatility. With its short wheelbase, the XS model is a first in its §egmènt wîth a body length of just 4.60m and a height of 1.90m. Despite its raised body, the 4x4 version remains under 2m tall, ensuring access to most height-restricted car parks.
The 'Ë' signature is inseparable from the name and history of the Citroën brand, and is positioned proudly on the dark-tinted rear quarter lights.
The SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept's sliding side doors open to reveal an impressively spacious interior, upholstered in soft and warm materials, wîth large windows providing plenty of natural light. The broad glass sunroof has two separate and coverable sections. The level of personalisation inside is most evident on the dashboard and upholstery. The red, white and blue colours are inspired by the 'Ë' lifestyle product range and subtly celebrate the brands French heritage to forge a new interior aesthetic.
Inspired by the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, the seats in the SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept are remarkably comfortable. The generous cabin can accommodate up to nine people, although in this five-seat configuration the concept has two individual front seats fitted wîth armrests.
With an uncompromising combination of comfort, practicality and aesthetics, this concept car has a unique interior look wîth a top-quality two-tone treatment. White leather graces the upper part of the seat backs and headrests. On the lower two-thirds of each seat, mottled grey Alcantara and leather combine to create a stunning visual contrast.
The headrests on the front seats feature an embossed 'Ë' logo and there are white leather straps on the front doors for use as door handles. This type of design was first seen on the C4 Cactus and is inspired by the world of travel and leather goods. As wîth the seatbelts, these door straps feature the same red and blue detailing as the brand's 'Ë' lifestyle product collection. Other references to the 'Ë' collection can be seen on the dashboard, which is decorated in a mottled grey, soft-to-the-touch fabric. This is similar to the iPad cover in the 'Ë' collection. The aluminium-coloured trim in the cabin is a reference to the 'Ë' branded jackets within the collection.
ENGINEERED FOR LEISÚRE AND ADVENTÚRE
The SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept's adventurous spirit and raised ground clearance (60mm higher than the production model), make it the ideal companion for outdoor pursuits.
Designed for most driving conditions, and powered by the BlueHDi 150 S&S diesel engine wîth a 6-speed manual gearbox, the SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept boasts top-level all-terrain abilities and ride comfort, whatever the weather. The concept is equipped wîth a selectable 4x4 transmission from Automobiles Dangel, a well-known French all-terrain specialist. Offering even greater motoring freedom, the drivetrain offers 4x4 traction, wîth Auto 4WD and R. Lock settings via a control wheel on the dashboard.
The Citroën SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept has a high-set driving position and boot access is enhanced by the opening rear window in the tailgate. Cabin access is via two foot operated hands-free sliding side doors. Occupants are treated to 74-litres of storage space located around the cabin, including the glove box and door bins. There is also sufficient space in the back to house a snowboard, leisure accessories or other items from the 'Ë' collection. The concept car has a load volume of up to two cubic metres in this five-seat layout.
