Citroen CXPerience Concept Hints At A Future Mid-Size Model

After successfully launching the DS brand in global markets, Citroen is now looking to modernize its current vehicle lineup, and the new CXPerience study could be a foundation stone for its future models.

Celebrating its world debut in Paris, after being presented online exactly a month ago, the study could eventually serve as a replacement for the aging C5 or even a brand new C6, but if that happens, then Citroen will most probably tone it down a notch or two.

In its current form, it’s a five-door hatchback, even though the automaker refers to it as a ‘two-box saloon’ and it’s about the same size as a Ford Mondeo, albeit much wider and lower, spanning a 3m-long wheelbase.

The design speaks for itself, as the CXPerience is an impressive car to look at, and adding up to that drama are the rear suicide doors, which open up to 90 degrees, but as futuristic as it may look, the corporate grille brings it back to earth.

Once inside, the yellow mesh fabric seats surround you, along with the mix of premium materials and the latest technology, joined by a 19-inch screen that proudly sits in the middle of the dashboard to control functions like the sat-nav, air-con and media. Citroen is making sure that rear passengers don’t feel left aside and offers a tablet that can be used to adjust the seats, audio system and climate control.

As expected, the Citroen CXPerience is a hybrid, one that combines a front-mounted petrol engine with an electric motor and an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The company claims that the zero-emission range sits proudly at 60 km (37 miles).
