Citroen is giving the world its first chance to see the exciting C4 Citroen Sport concept at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. A packed stand also features the new C3 XTR, making its show debut ahead of its imminent UK launch, alongside the innovative C-Airlounge concept car.
Unquestionably one of the star turns of the Show, the C4 Citroen Sport concept looks every inch a rally championship winner in the making. Original styling touches at the front include ‘boomerang’ headlamps, large air intakes and a chrome grille featuring a bold new chevron design, while the aerodynamic appearance is heightened by the swooping roof which drops down dramatically via the trapezoidal rear windows to a short rear overhang.
With its 4,286mm long and 1,790mm wide dimensions, sleek lines and large flared wheel arches filled by massive white alloys, the C4 Citroen Sport concept has all the characteristics of a future rallying powerhouse. It also benefits from a totally transparent rear roof section and large windows, ensuring a bright and airy cabin, whilst the stylish interior design is embellished by two-tone red and black leather upholstery, stamped with the C4 Citroen Sport insignia, as well as leather door panels, bucket seats and steering wheel.
Other highlights see a first public showing for the new, robust-looking C3 XTR, which offers many practical touches such as modular roof bars, stylish protective body mouldings and a useful Child pack, while there is also a chance to catch the award-winning C-Airlounge with its advanced aerodynamic technologies and intriguing interior lighting system, as well as many other models, including the new Xsara Picasso HDi 110.Published 3 March 2004
