excellent trade-off between comfort and roadholding, further boosted by
special 18-inch Michelin tyres.
A high-performance diesel engine that respects the

part of the tailgate provides support for 200 kg, making it easy to
load bulky objects and perfect as an al fresco seat.
Perfect positioning in the CitroŽn range
C-Crosser’s status-enhancing style, generous dimensions (2.67 m
wheelbase) and high-level performance perfectly round out CitroŽn’s
range of mid- and top-end vehicles, with the C5 and C6 saloons and C4
Picasso and C8 MPVs.
Meanwhile, the Marque is pursuing its strategy
in the compact category with the C1, C2, C3 and C3 Pluriel, four
complementary vehicles with extremely individual styling and concepts,
