CITROňN AT THE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW

DARING, CREATIVITY AND TECHNOLOGY

At the 81st International Motor Show in Geneva, CITROňN will display a product range that embodies the brand’s core values of creativity, technology and daring.

THE CITROňN DS4: ACT II OF THE DS LINE

After the CITROňN DS3, the DS4 is further proof of “Crťative Technologie”. The newcomer fully honours the DS philosophy, with bold stances on style, sensations, architecture and refinement. The DS4, voted most beautiful car of the year by 60,000 Internet users from 62 countries, is a high four-door coupť combining vitality and versatility and offering an unparalleled driving experience. At the Geneva Motor Show, the CITROňN DS4 will be displayed alongside a new concept car, the DS4 Purple, an object of desire and distinction that subtly reworks finishes from the jeweller’s craft.

INNOVATIONS FOR WELL-BEING WITH THE MICRO-HYBRID e-HDi AND HYDRACTIVE SUSPENSION

Innovation is on show in the form of e-HDi micro-hybrid technology, fitted on a number of models in the range, including the Berlingo, making its debut with this technology. The Hydractive suspension system, a CITROňN world exclusive available on the C5 and C6, is a unique combination of energy and comfort, providing maximum well-being for the occupants while adapting to road constraints for optimum safety. CITROňN is also confirming its strong performance on CO2 emissions, with an average reduction of 5.3 g/km in 2010, for an average 132.3 g/km.

SURPRISING SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILITY WITH TWO ELECTRIC MODELS AND CITROňN MULTICITY

At the end of 2010, CITROňN released two fully electric models – the CITROňN C-ZERO and the Berlingo First manufactured jointly with Venturi Automobilesģ. CitroŽn is also a facilitator of mobility with an unprecedented service: CITROňN MULTICITY, a new development in car hire and travel planning, enabling people to choose and reserve the most suitable transport mode for their needs.

MORE MOTOR SPORTS ADVENTURE WITH THE CITROňN DS3 WRC

CITROňN is continuing its involvement in motor sports with the new CITROňN DS3 WRC. Racing in the 2011 World Rally Championship, the new model complies with this year’s new regulations. CITROňN aims to win a seventh Manufacturer’s World Championship title.

DARING AND CREATIVITY WITH THE CITROňN METROPOLIS, C3 RED BLOCK AND C6 NOIR ET BLANC CONCEPT CARS

Developed by CITROňN’S design office in Shanghai, the METROPOLIS concept car, exhibited at Expo 2012 and seen by 10 million visitors, is now making its European debut. A true work of art, the concept car embodies CITROňN’S commitment to developing innovative prestige vehicles for Europe and China, a country that is now CITROňN’S second-biggest market by volume.
Through unusual and expressive colours and materials, CITROňN is reinventing codes and dazzling audiences with the C3 Red Block and the C6 Noir et Blanc.

CITROňN DS4: ACT II OF THE DS LINE

The second opus in the DS line, the CITROňN DS4 fully honours the philosophy of the DS line, which brings motorists bold choices in terms of style, sensations, architecture and refinement.
From the first glance, the DS4 reveals the special features that make it unique, with a raised body dominating the road and a panoramic windscreen for a wider view of the world. The CITROňN DS4 expresses its exclusive nature through the staging of chevrons on the radiator grille, the DS logo on the hood and light guides visible day and night. Its refined and powerful profile features chrome detailing surrounding dark-tinted side windows, muscular wheel housings that highlight the large wheels – up to 19 inches – and a tautly styled roof culminating in a contoured rear spoiler for an extra dose of vitality. Like the exterior styling, the interior conveys strength, energy and refinement. Arm-chair-style front seats in a “watchband” design and full-grain leather, a contoured dash with exceptional tactile quality, and a panoramic windscreen extending back into a dark roof all reflect the CITROňN DS4’s strong personality.
With road handling to match its style, the new shape of this raised four-door coupť promises unique roadholding and makes travelling and movement irresistible.
The DS4 was voted most beautiful car of the year by more than 60,000 Internet uses from 62 counties. The prize was awarded at the ceremony of the 26th International Automobile Festival in Paris on 27 January.
Some 500 privileged buyers in France, Germany and Switzerland will be able to pre-order their vehicles online and will be the first to drive a DS4.
The CITROňN DS4 is also being exhibited in a special version, the DS4 Purple. An object of desire and distinction, the concept subtly reworks finishes from jewellery, classic in luxury craft but rarely applied to cars, for a different kind of elegance for the most discerning aesthetes. Sporting matte plum body paint, the DS4 Purple is enhanced with champagne-coloured chrome, brushed and unbrushed, and various special finishes in the same tones on the headlamps, wheels and badges.
