Citroën’s six wheel Cruise Crosser Concept
Citroën has joined forces with the Espera Sbarro design school to develop the Cruise Crosser all-terrain concept car. The vehicle has gone on display at the Geneva Motor Show, and is based on the new C-Crosser, the first-ever SUV from Citroën. It features three axles and six wheels to improve traction over rough terrain and displays strong green credentials thanks to its diesel-hybrid drivetrain. The third-axle is actually powered by an electric motor and can even run alone during low load times.
The concept's vibrant orange paint scheme is echoed throughout the car with similar colored trim used for the leather seats, dash and door panels. The Cruise Crosser offers removable third row seating, enough to carry up to seven passengers and their equipment.
The tailgate design makes loading easier, while step plates on either side of the car offer easy access to the rear compartment. The Cruise Crosser also features an advanced satellite navigation system and DVD player that could feature in the production C-Crosser, however, this concept car remains strictly an exercise in design.
