Back in April, Citroen unveiled the C-XR Concept at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, a concept car that previewed the first SUV developed by the joint venture between the French company and Dongfeng Motor Group.
Today, Citroen unveiled the C3-XR a.k.a. the production version of the C-XR Concept, which looks almost identical to the vehicle we saw at the Auto China 2014. Set to go on sale in December, the 2015 Citroen C-XR comes equipped with the latest technologies such as keyless entry and starting, rear-view camera, grip control and connectivity via the Citroen telematics services.
Compared with the concept car, the C3-XR drops the fancy LED headlights and taillamps in favor of “normal” ones, while the rear end receives a new bumper and exhaust tailpipes.
Citroen will produce the C3-XR at Wuhan and at launch the vehicle will be available with a 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol engine developing 160 hp and bolted to a 6-speed automatic transmission, which delivers the power to the front wheels. [source: Citroen]
