Citroen are known for their wild concepts every now and then, especially the unforgettable Citroen GT. But that’s about it. Now they release photos of the Citroen Cxperience concept ahead of the Paris Motor Show to gain the spotlight.
The main aim behind the Citroen Cxperience concept is to preview Citroën’s new design direction for the upcoming line-up of cars. And let’s be honest here. The current line-up is boring and simply bland. The new design direction should spruce up the design by adding sharper lines, more tech and edgier ideas overall.
The rims on the Citroen Cxperience measure to 22-inches and the roof is floating with no actual B or A Pillars. The body work is also neat and individual with slim panels all round.
The flaps you see on the front bumper are actually movable to balance drag against cooling. A very neat aerodynamic device that adapts based on speed. The Citroen Cxperience concept is a plugin hybrid that uses a petrol engine with 200-hp mated to an eight speed auto and a 80kW electric motor. The result: 250-300 bhp in total – The battery range alone gives you 37 miles of range and charges in 2.5 hours.
The interior design is somewhat weird at first glance although it feels really airy overall. Citroen introduces a 19-inch screen that rids us of the usual buttons and also provides the rear passengers with a tablet to control their individual Air condition temps and entertainment.
The Citroen Cxperience also has camera instead of side mirrors just to make it that much interesting.
