Citroën’s star car at the 2016 Paris Motor Show next month is CXperience Concept, which is said to bring a fresh new approach to the hatchback segment. The exceptional new bodystyle is a step forward that marks a new offensive in the French automaker’s brand strategy.
The innovative plug-in hybrid vehicle is immediately recognisable with its distinctive style and cleverly designed rear-hinged doors. The bold lines express power, while the generous curves express the car’s own stylistic language.
Inspired by the high-tech world, the front end, grille and updated signature headlights create a unique style. The rear end also makes a statement with its strongly marked wings and concave rear window with a fin for improved aerodynamics.
To contrast the pearlescent sea green exterior colour, the premium materials inside the car are a citrus yellow shade to create a fresh and assured ambience. The seats are upholstered in a padded-effect yellow mesh fabric and the backrests feature an elegant shade of walnut wood.
In line with the brand’s know-how and heritage, this latest creation features the hallmark of Citroën vehicles – the latest demonstration of the Citroën Advanced Comfort programme, designed for the well-being of all passengers. Supporting the styling and technological development of new brand models, the programme reflects changing customer expectations and is considered at every stage in the design process.
An easy-to-use infotainment system allows passengers to control a range of functions. A smartphone and mobile tablet can also be used to activate a range of controls, including starting the car and sharing media files with other passengers.
