Earlier this week, Citroën released teaser images and information on the SpaceTourer 4x4 Ë Concept, which will debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
And you’re going to want one.
The tall, boxy van appears to have everything the Internet Car Enthusiast claims to want. There’s space for people and cargo, four-by-four capability, adventurous-looking styling, and
urban dot-matrix camo paint scheme tires with snow chains, which are of course necessary in all environments where you’d drive the van.
The Citroën media release sets the tone for this exciting new vehicle:
In its XS version, the SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept features a 4WD conversion, protection equipment and graphic components outside together with a special interior layout that make it a stylish, practical and contemporary adventurer, firmly focused on escapades and well-being. The new concept car was designed for all today’s “tribes” looking to enjoy their leisure activities in style and with a relaxed attitude.
Yes, all those things. It’s also indicated that the SpaceTourer is available in three sizes in case you want to tour off-road with length — extra small, medium, and extra large. The extra large version is able to seat up to nine tribe people, should you have that many in your active family and friends unit. The four-by-four trim features additional ground clearance over the standard model — a whopping 2.36 inches.
And then comes the part that will really get ICE blood boiling:
Designed for unlimited adventure and powered by the BlueHDi 150 S&S diesel with a 6-speed manual gearbox, the SpaceTourer 4X4 Ë Concept boasts top-level all-terrain abilities and ride comfort whatever the environment.
However, this diesel, four-by-four, lifted off-road van is highly unlikely to make its way to North American shores, as Citroën left the market in 1974 after the SM failed to meet U.S. headlamp regulation requirements.
But we can dream.
