The C-Crosser concept car illustrates how a future Citroën
leisure vehicle or SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) might look.
A highly adaptable vehicle in terms of both its external
modularity and innovative interior design, the C-Crosser
is aimed at all those looking for a versatile vehicle
that can satisfy their taste for adventure, freedom, well-being
Citroën has taken a new approach to the dynamic capabilities
of off-road vehicles and has enhanced safety levels by
means of continuous electronic control. The combination
of electronics and hydraulics proves itself to be a high-performance
The front of the vehicle is designed to accommodate three
people. The drivers station is built using advanced
drive-by-wire technology, so the driver can sit on the
left, in the middle or on the right as he chooses.
A major innovation in drivers station design, drive-by-wire
technology does away with all the mechanical links between
commands and components (engine, steering, brakes). All
the drivers station commands are grouped on the
steering wheel with its fixed hub.
Sliding side doors and a variable-height load sill provide
easy access to the platform. The driver simply presses
a button at the rear of the vehicle to lower the sill
by 100 mm, making it easy to load heavy or bulky objects.
For increased convenience, the C-Crosser features built-in,
electrically controlled roof bars that slide along the
roof arches, making it possible to transport long objects,
whatever the configuration of the vehicle.
