Beijing Show 2014 Highlights: Citroen C-XR Concept

Citroën has revealed its new C-XR concept at the Beijing motor show.

Previewing the first production SUV to come from the joint venture between Citroën and Dongfeng, the concept is billed as "a contemporary take on the SUV".

The C-XR concept features traditional SUV styling, and includes a wide grille finished in chrome with large Citroën chevrons in the middle. Vertical LED lighting strips feature at either side, alongside a large lower air intake and rugged-looking front guard.

Roof rails run the length of the concept, while double exhaust tips feature at the rear. Body cladding is standard, adding a more rugged edge to the concept.

The car sits on 17-inch wheels with all-weather tyres. Citroën claims the C-XR's wheelbase is the longest in its class, at 2650mm, which should result in substantial interior space.

Citroën says the C-XR comes equipped with its selectable Grip Control technology, while power comes from the firm's THP 160 petrol engine. An automatic gearbox is standard, as is a stop-start system to improve efficiency.

The concept is likely to make production with only minor changes, becoming a rival to Peugeot's 2008. Reports suggest a production version will appear early next year.
