Citroën has teamed up with French pop group “HYPHEN HYPHEN” to work on a “vibrant 4x4 concept” based on the latest SpaceTourer.

PSA and Toyota revealed the three new MPVs (Traveller, Spacetourer, Proace) a couple of months ago and now Citroën has applied a “supercharged design” for a bold concept. It combines a series of lively colors and sends out a bit of an Aircross vibe highlighted by the funky 19-inch alloys and plastic body cladding with orange accents.

Citroën wanted to make the SpaceTourer look more like an SUV and added front and rear underbody protection and jacked up the suspension to increase ground clearance. The concept obviously targets a younger audience and adventurous people looking for a versatile vehicle.

The interior theme is just as funky as the exterior as it combines a similar variety of striking colors and it also has a large glass sunroof that lets a lot of light come in and make the cabin more airy.

Power comes from a turbodiesel BlueHDi 150 engine with start/stop technology linked to a six-speed manual transmission sending power to an on-demand four-wheel drive system. The later was developed in collaboration with Automobiles Dangel and aims to offer increased traction on difficult terrains without affecting handling and the MPV’s standard performances.

Citroën will have the SpaceTourer HYPHEN concept on display at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show starting March 1.
