The Citroën stand at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show will feature as its star attraction the world premiere of new Citroën C4 Aircross.
Marrying style, innovation and practicality in a compact SUV, an exclusive version of the C4 Aircross will be on display in Geneva with all-new Vapor Grey frosted texture paint. There is a chrome finish on the roof bars, door mirrors and door handles and two-tone diamond-effect wheel rims. Motorists will enjoy a high driving position and everyone in the car will appreciate the panoramic glass roof.
As well as great looks, there are plenty of other impressive features on offer with the C4 Aircross. There is a flexible transmission system offering 2WD, 4WD and LOCK, and CO2 emissions are just 119g/km in the HDi 115 two-wheel drive version - a segment leader. There is a generous 442-litre boot within the compact dimensions of a vehicle that is just 4.34m long.
Amongst the 'Creative Technologie' on offer is the NaviDrive satnav with touch screen and reversing camera, Keyless access and start, a Rockford Hi-Fi system and integrated server for music storage.
The C4 Aircross will be on show alongside the new C1, Citroën's compact, economical and ecological city car and the new Berlingo Multispace. The C1 has Co2 emissions from just 99g/km and plenty of great equipment for a small car, including LED daytime running lights, CD audio system, Bluetooth connectivity via the Connecting Box and an Electronic Gearbox System with steering-mounted paddles. Meanwhile, the new Berlingo Multispace on show will feature the new chevron badge, customised Onyx Black exterior trim, a new headlight arrangement, multiple stowage compartments and a dual-access boot.
Other star attractions include the production version of the new C3 Red Block, which debuted as a concept car at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The C3 Red Block has a lowered body height, ESP as standard and a choice of three engines, two diesel and one petrol, all mated to manual gearboxes.
Naturally, the much-talked-about DS line will have a strong presence on the stand with DS3, DS4 and DS5 all on show in Geneva. The DS4 Racing concept is sure to be a head-turner along with Paris Rendez-Vous. Additionally, DS5 Hybrid4, DS3 Ultra Prestige, and DS3 Racing S. Loeb limited edition in honour of Sebastien Loeb, Citroën's champion WRC rally driver will be on display.
The DS4 Racing concept takes on the expertise of Citroën Racing's engineers to create a 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine with 256bhp, carbon fibre components, air diffuser, front splitter and wheel arch extensions.
With a starting price of £20,700, the DS3 Ultra Prestige offers affordable luxury, a punchy THP 155 petrol engine or super-efficient e-HDi 110 diesel with Stop & Start.
DS4 and DS5 Paris Rendez-Vous limited editions will stand out from the crowd with pearlescent white paint, chrome-finished door mirrors, chrome trim and black diamond-effect 19-inch alloy wheels on the outside. Inside, there's a club leather interior with the DS line's signature 'watchstrap' design in warm brown with blue overstitching. DS5 Hybrid4 promises great performance - up to 200bhp as well as four wheel drive and zero emissions when it is in full electric mode.
The DS3 Racing S. Loeb gives potential buyers to be in the presence of motor sports greatness with this signed and numbered series of just 200 cars, with all cars individually numbered on a special plate on the roof lining. It is fitted with Citroën's MyWay navigation system and the body is cloaked in a unique matt black colour with a textured effect, with Citroën being the first manufacturer to launch a car with this type of paint. The roof, door mirrors, grille, dashboard fascia and gearstick base are in a contrasting shade of red and there are also special decals.
The 2012 Geneva Motor Show promises to be a very busy one for Citroën with plenty of new innovations in terms of engineering and design to keep the brand in the spotlight.
