The French have always been known for their innovative automotive designs and no automaker has been as experimental as the Citroen brand – for better or for worse.
The main point of the CXperience Concept is to showcase the brand’s upmarket aspirations, with a focus on passenger comfort, while staying true to its motto “Be Different, Feel Good.” The concept comes in the form of a wagon but with dimensions that give it a coupe-like feel. It rides low and wide, featuring design cues such as the rear concave window to make it distinct.
Don’t get your hopes up: this, reputedly, is not a preview of the next-gen Citroen C4 or C5. Alas, this new Citroen CXperience Concept – a large hatchback with a plug-in hybrid powertrain – is mooted to simply show off ‘the brand’s new aesthetic codes’.
Still, we live in hope. After all, Citroen rolled the oddball C4 Cactus into production – and the electric DS E-Tense concept appears threateningly close to being a production car of some sort.
All this is theoretically powered by a plug-in petrol hybrid engine with a range of 60km on purely electric power and producing a combined 220kW, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
