The 2002 Citroen C-Airdream concept was a 2+2 coupé
with a long wheelbase and long front overhang coupled
with a short rear overhang. This was in order to help
create elegant, clean styling on the outside, and a spacious,
airy feel inside.
The front end of the C-Airdream is instantly recognizable
as belonging to a Citroen. However the rear - aside from
the prominent Citroen badge, is less obvious. The lines
are more Volvo-esqe than Citroen-like.
To flood the interior of the C-Airdream with light, Citroen's
designers gave the concept windows which ran around the
entire car, as well as keeping the structural pillars
as slim as possible. The roof, which is also glazed, slopes
down slowly over the back of the car before meeting with
the tinted rear gate.
Under the skin of the Citroen C-Airdream is an advanced
drive-by-wire system and Citroen's Hydractive 3 suspension
system. Power for the concept came from a 3.0 litre V6
which developed 210 horsepower.
In the passenger compartment was a navigation and information
screen mounted in the dash. This was controlled using
an interface in the central armrest.
