CITROËN CELEBRATES IMPRESSIVE DOUBLE WIN AT AUTO EXPRESS NEW CAR AWARDS 2017

For an incredible fourth consecutive year, the Citroën Grand C4 Picasso has been recognised as the ‘Best MPV’ at the Auto Express New Car Awards. Not to be outdone, C4 Cactus also scooped the ‘Best Small SUV’ title, marking this year’s ceremony with a successful double win for the French marque. Auto Express’ judging panel of automotive experts has once again selected the family favourite Grand C4 Picasso as their ‘Best MPV’ at the Auto Express New Car Awards 2017, making this an impressive fourth consecutive win. The celebrations didn’t stop there either, as the Citroën C4 Cactus scooped the ‘Best Small SUV’ title at the awards ceremony last night at the Hilton Hotel, London Bankside.

The C4 Cactus was honoured for its ultra-stylish good looks and unique character that fully embodies Citroën’s ‘Be different, Feel good’ spirit. Steve Fowler, Editor-in-chief of Auto Express, said; “The Grand C4 Picasso’s fourth successive win is testament to the brilliance of the original design – it’s a cleverly thought-out MPV that does its job brilliantly. Citroën has also cleverly updated it to keep it ahead of the pack.” “In the C4 Cactus, Citroën has not only created one of the most characterful small SUV’s, but also the best. As well as its cheeky character, it drives brilliantly, has a family-friendly interior and won’t cost the earth to buy or run – we love it!” Bek Hassan, Citroën UK’s Managing Director, said; “It’s fantastic to see Grand C4 Picasso continue to lead the MPV sector, and for C4 Cactus to be recognised as the ‘Best Small SUV’ in a particularly hotly contested segment of the market. These latest Auto Express awards are a further endorsement of our product strategy, to create cars that are practical, comfortable, feature intelligent technologies, have distinctive looks, and ultimately exceed the expectations of our customers.” New Citroën C3 also performed exceptionally well with a ‘Commended’ mention in the ‘Supermini’ category.

NEW CITROËN C3 AIRCROSS COMPACT SUV REVEALED: CITROËN REINFORCES ITS INTERNATIONAL SUV OFFENSIVE

Following the premiere of New C5 Aircross in April, Citroën is stepping up its international SUV offensive with the reveal of New C3 Aircross, a compact SUV with a fresh and assertive personality. New C3 Aircross is a new-generation SUV with unrivalled space for a vehicle of its type, a modular design and a large opening panoramic glass sunroof. Representing an important milestone for the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, New C3 Aircross offers a sense of well-being on-board. Equally at ease in the city or out on the open road, this new Citroën SUV’s adventurous abilities have been enhanced with Grip Control®, Hill Descent Assist, 12 driver assistance systems (incl. Colour Head-up Display) and four connectivity technologies (incl. Wireless Smartphone Charging). New C3 Aircross will officially go ‘on sale’ in the UK on Wednesday 1 November 2017. Following the world premiere of New C5 Aircross – the brand’s new C-segment SUV – at the Shanghai Motor Show in April, Citroën is stepping up its international SUV offensive. Today the Citroën brand reveals the New C3 Aircross compact SUV, which will soon launch into the rapidly growing B SUV-segment in the UK, Europe and across markets worldwide. Both of Citroën's new-generation SUVs are people-minded and inspired by customers. With the protective character of their exterior styling, New C5 Aircross and New C3 Aircross are equally appealing to SUV buyers, each with their own unique and energetic personalities. Both models stand out in their respective segments and represent new benchmarks in terms of ease of use and on-board comfort. New C5 Aircross and New C3 Aircross illustrate the brand's expertise in design, the creation of space and well-being. Inspired by the C-Aircross Concept, which was presented at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, New C3 Aircross brings a breath of fresh air to the compact SUV segment. Outside, it stands out with its unique body styling and unprecedented personalisation choices. Inside, innovation is demonstrated through its levels of comfort as part of the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme. This means plenty of space on-board, a modular design, and a bright and airy passenger compartment. New C3 Aircross is a contemporary vehicle that is connected and equipped with a range of technologies that make life easier in the city and out on the open road. In short, Citroën's new SUV invites fans of style, well-being and adventure to live a whole new automotive experience. The New Citroën C3 Aircross compact SUV stands apart as:  AN SUV WITH AN ASSERTIVE & CUSTOMISABLE PERSONALITYNew Citroën C3 Aircross is a compact 4.15m long SUV distinguished by its powerful, original and fresh attitude. It boasts unique body styling that is fully representative of the current Citroën range, along with all the attributes of a robust and protective SUV – raised ground clearance, an elevated driving position, front and rear skid plates, large wheels and wheel arch extensions. The body styling is underscored by strong graphic features, such as the touches of colour on the roof bars and the ‘Venetian Blind’ rear quarter-lights. New C3 Aircross offers an unprecedented number of personalisation options with up to 90 exterior colour combinations, including four roof colours for two-tone models and four ‘Colour Packs’, plus five highly distinctive interior design schemes. The cabin, with its horizontal design approach, clearly conveys spaciousness and protection. New C3 Aircross is also very much an SUV in terms of driving pleasure and handling. Nimble in the city, owing to its compact body, and ready for adventure with its Grip Control® and Hill Descent Assist system, New C3 Aircross is available with a wide selection of economical and efficient petrol and diesel engines.  THE MOST SPACIOUS & MODULAR SUV IN THE COMPACT SEGMENTThe Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, which focuses on mental and physical well-being, is seen through the ingenious architecture of New C3 Aircross. This is a compact SUV that makes everyday life easier, with absolutely no compromises in terms of comfort or functionality. The cabin is home to broad and comfortable seats, and offers class-leading space (headroom and legroom), unrivalled modularity (split/sliding rear seats), a fold-flat front passenger seat (for a load length of up to 2.40m) and exceptional boot volume (410-litres, which can increase to 520-litres). Well-being is also assured by a cabin that is flooded with natural light, thanks to the large opening panoramic glass sunroof. New C3 Aircross features ingenious storage spaces, including a wireless smartphone charging area in the central console. It is also available with a complete range of driver assistance systems, such as the Colour Head-up Display, Active Safety Brake, Intelligent Beam Headlights and Speed Sign Recognition and Recommendation, as well as useful technologies including Park Assist and Citroën Connect Nav. "After the New C5 Aircross, a C-segment SUV presented in Shanghai, Citroën is accelerating its international SUV offensive with a second model. Unveiled today in Paris, the New Citroën C3 Aircross compact SUV will be launched in Europe between now and the end of the year. Bringing together all of Citroën's expertise in cabin space, modular design and comfort, this people-minded SUV stands out in the B SUV-segment with its unique body styling. It has a different mind-set, a source of protection and adventure, consistent with the expectations of customers today." Linda Jackson, Citroën CEO NEW CITROËN C3 AIRCROSS IN DETAIL 01 – AN SUV WITH AN ASSERTIVE & CUSTOMISABLE PERSONALITY UNIQUE SUV BODY STYLING New Citroën C3 Aircross was created with the inspiration of the design teams, led by Alexandre Malval, Citroën’s Design Director. New C3 Aircross appeals with its unique body styling, and its fresh and protective appearance. Its compact and high-set dimensions (4.15m long, 1.76m wide and 1.64m tall) are well proportioned and showcase the car's flowing and dynamic lines. Citroën's attractive new compact SUV dominates the road. The design of New C3 Aircross is unique to the segment with a muscular bonnet that is both short and raised. The overall design is free from aggression although there is a sense of robustness, which is underscored by the front and rear light signatures. Standing firm on its large diameter wheels, New C3 Aircross has a ground clearance 20mm higher than New C3, whose platform it shares. The new model's wheel arch extensions and protective skid plates also contribute to the dynamic and protective SUV styling. These visual features reinforce the car's adventurous spirit and personality. At the front, New C3 Aircross features Citroën's two-tier light signature. The lights at the top are the LED daytime running lights, which link to the chevrons via a double chrome strip to enhance the perceived width of the car. The lower units are for the headlights and come complete with coloured surrounds. There is also space to house the fog lamps. A large air intake in the centre strikes a powerful note. Lower down, a protective skid plate underscores the SUV nature of New C3 Aircross. At the rear, the design emphasises the car’s width and muscular character. The 3D-effect rear lights spell out the family connection with New C3 and the C-Aircross Concept. The sophisticated light units are complemented by ‘Gloss Black’ inserts in the tailgate, featuring the two-tone C3 Aircross badge and Gloss Black chevrons. The imposing rear bumper and protective skid plate echo the front end, and once again affirms the car's robustness and SUV spirit.  A true SUV, New C3 Aircross features innovative components such as the stylish quarter-lights as a unique design signature. Previewed on the C-Aircross Concept, the rear quarter-lights – made from polycarbonate and layered with a coloured film – create a strong graphic contrast on the C-pillar. With their ‘Venetian Blind’ effect, they add a unique character trait and also serve to conceal the inside of the car, but without keeping the light out or reducing visibility.  A CUSTOMISABLE SUV: WITH UP TO 90 COLOUR COMBINATIONS* Another distinctive feature of New Citroën C3 Aircross is the way it can be adapted to match the personality of individual customers. As with New C3, Citroën’s designers have given New C3 Aircross a bold and modern spirit that is highly customisable. Each owner can express themselves – from the most conventional to the most striking finish. Customers can choose the colour of the roof and then combine it with a different body colour and a ‘Colour Pack’. Energising the styling of the compact SUV, the touches in the Colour Pack are applied to the roof bars, rear quarter-lights, door mirrors, front headlamp surrounds and wheel centre caps. New C3 Aircross is available with up to 90 colour combinations reflecting each buyer’s personality and tastes: Eight body colours (Natural White, Ink Black, Misty Grey, Cosmic Silver, Passion Red, Breathing Blue, Soft Sand, Spicy Orange)Four roof colours for a two-tone effect (Ink Black, Natural White, Spicy Orange or Soft Sand)*Four Colour Packs (Orange, Grey, White, Black) * Depending on the country Customers also get to choose between stylish 16-inch wheel trims and 16-inch or 17-inch alloy wheels. Personalisation applies equally inside New C3 Aircross, with five interior design choices.Each design is inspired by the worlds of furniture and fashion. The emphasis is on pure lines, protective forms, a meticulous finish and a variety of textures on the dashboard. The door panel designs, touches of colour on the steering wheel and air vents, and the seat upholsteries create a lounge-like atmosphere. Regardless of the chosen finish, be it neutral, warm, dynamic or high-end, New C3 Aircross brings an extensive range of items for personal expression: The standard design scheme is pure and uncluttered with a textured grey dashboard, combined with Mica Grey cloth seat upholstery and enhanced by white air vent surroundsThe Metropolitan Grey design scheme emphasises cabin space. The focus here is on clarity and well-being with bright colours and warm fabrics that also feature on the dashboard. The air vents have orange surroundsThe Urban Red design scheme expresses vitality and boosts the technological character of the SUV. It comprises a series of contrasting elements between dark colours and bright stitching on the Dark Grey Quartz cloth seats. The dashboard is covered in a leather-like material to complete the lookThe Hype Mistral design scheme conveys a premium feel. It combines black leather and patterned cloth, with a leather-look to the dashboard. The air vents feature satin chrome surroundsThe Hype Colorado design scheme also expresses a premium approach, enhanced by soft-touch materials and a special tan-coloured finish on the half-leather seats, two-tone leather steering wheel and dashboard.AN SUV DRIVING EXPERIENCE New C3 Aircross is also very much an SUV in terms of driving pleasure and handling. Dominating the road with its raised ground clearance and large wheels, New C3 Aircross is at ease on most surfaces thanks to the Grip Control® and Hill Descent Assist system. Able to venture out of the city and leave the beaten track by adjusting grip, New C3 Aircross is ideal both for fans of urban adventure and shopping excursions, and fans of sport, leisure and outdoor activities. Equipped with the Grip Control® system for improved traction and special 16-inch and 17-inch mud-and-snow tyres, New C3 Aircross can adapt to all types of terrain, whatever the conditions. Safety is enhanced in all circumstances through five driving modes. Drivers can leave the Grip Control® system on automatic via the Standard mode or select between Sand, All-Road, Snow or ESP OFF modes.  Combined with Grip Control®, the Hill Descent Assist function maintains the car at a reduced speed even on the steepest inclines. This technology keeps New C3 Aircross on the right trajectory while limiting the risk of slippage as the car descends slopes. The new function helps the driver to keep perfect control of New C3 Aircross in complete safety. The system can function at very low speeds – as low as 2mph (3km/h) – for added control and safety during what can otherwise be a very stressful manoeuvre. The technology and adventurous nature of the new model are underlined by a broad range of economical and efficient latest-generation engines. New C3 Aircross is available with International Engine of the Year award-winning PureTech 3-cylinder petrol engines, equipped with the latest technologies for heightened responsiveness, controlled fuel consumption and emissions. The BlueHDi range of diesel engines also brings driving pleasure and enhanced economy. Petrol: The New C3 Aircross compact SUV is available in its highest performance form with the PureTech 130 S&S with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The PureTech 110 S&S engine is available with a manual gearbox, as well as an EAT6 automatic gearbox for maximum driving pleasure and comfort.

Designed as a true space for living, the interior of New C3 Aircross is warm and welcoming. With its ingenious architecture, it combines compact design outside with outstanding roominess inside. An easy car to live with, day in and day out, New C3 Aircross scores high on user-friendliness through its intuitive technologies. CLASS-LEADING SPACE New C3 Aircross is fully focused on comfort, with the perception of space and a sense of well-being playing a key role. These sensations – felt instantly on entering the vehicle – are created by the horizontal design of the dashboard, and by the welcoming and comfortable seats. Put simply, New Citroën C3 Aircross innovates through its design, providing exceptional cabin space, modularity and boot volume. Spaciousness: The architecture of New C3 Aircross delivers the most spacious interior in the segment and outstanding comfort, with five seats and both generous leg and headroom. Each passenger is fully at ease in the front and rear alike.

The ultra-modular front passenger seat can be folded down to transport long objects.

The boot's standard volume of 410-litres can be increased to 520-litres with the rear bench in the fully forward position. Total load volume with the rear seats folded down flat is an impressive 1,289-litres. Strong on everyday practicality, New C3 Aircross also features a removable luggage shelf that can be stored in a vertical position behind the rear bench when transporting taller objects. As a further ingenious touch, the dual height boot floor provides the option of a flat floor with the rear seatbacks folded down.OPENING PANORAMIC GLASS SUNROOF New C3 Aircross places a premium on the amount of light in the cabin. The new model features a large glazed surface area offering drivers 360° of visibility and impressive amounts of light inside the car. This sensation is enhanced by the relaxing effect of the rear quarter-lights with their ‘Venetian Blind’ design creating a mixture of light and shadow. New C3 Aircross also offers passengers an impressive view of the sky with its opening panoramic glass sunroof. Unique in the B SUV-segment, this feature comes complete with a sequential electric control, has an interior glazed area of nearly 1m long, and features a sun blind and LED lighting. The amount of light in the cabin can also be adjusted using the sun blinds in the rear doors.  INGENIOUS STORAGE SPACES Another essential component to promote comfort when travelling is storage space. The eminently functional New C3 Aircross benefits from a range of storage compartments. The central console has been designed to store a smartphone with a special dock and wireless charging.The ‘penholder’ space on the passenger side of the dashboard can accommodate slim objects such as keys, pens and coins. The front door pockets even have enough room for 1.5-litre bottles of water. Rear passengers benefit from extra storage spaces too.

NEW CITROËN C3 & GRAND C4 PICASSO TAKE DOUBLE WIN IN CONTRACT HIRE AND LEASING.COM AWARDS 2016/2017

New Citroën C3 has scooped the award for Supermini of the Year, and Grand C4 Picasso has eclipsed its rivals to take the MPV of the Year prize in the Contract Hire and Leasing.com Awards 2016/17. The awards judges highlighted New C3’s “reassuring” running costs and “engaging handling” and described Grand C4 Picasso as simply “one of best MPVs available today”. New Citroën C3 has fought off some exceptionally strong B-segment competition to win Best Supermini in the Contract Hire and Leasing.com Car of the Year Awards 2016/2017, with New Citroën Grand C4 Picasso also sweeping the competition aside to take the Best MPV title.  The Contract Hire and Leasing.com judges said; “Reassuring running costs, engaging handling, distinctive looks, and a wide variety of personalisation options make the C3 a fun lease.” The judges continued; “With the same styling cues of the C4 Cactus, it gets a much more inspired look than its forebear. But those individualistic air bumps aren’t the only reason it wins our supermini of the year award. The C3’s update extends well beyond the bodywork, thanks to an interior that features possibly the comfiest seats ever to grace a small car. Its four doors and 300-litre boot means practicality is just as high on the priority list as comfort. too.” Citroën’s fun New C3 includes the world’s first fully integrated dashcam, ConnectedCAM Citroën™. The forward facing camera, positioned just behind the rear-view mirror, adds both fun and function to the car. The driver can take pictures in complete safety, and record or share video via their social media channels. The camera can also record vital “before and after” footage in the event of an accident. In addition, New C3’s range of efficient PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel engines all feature low emissions and low fuel consumption, contributing to low overall running costs. The Grand C4 Picasso is no stranger to awards ceremonies, its strengths as a stylish and spacious MPV having earned it a long list of awards since it was originally launched in 2014. The Contract Hire and Leasing.com judges praised New Grand C4 Picasso, describing Citroën’s family seven-seater as; “One of the best MPVs available today, the Grand C4 Picasso majors on style.” They went on to say; “In the British lexicon, the name Picasso is now probably more associated with MPVs than it is with surrealist paintings, and the updated Grand C4 Picasso ensures this trend continues. This behemoth seven-seater gets a flexibility that makes it the perfect family load-lugger. Huge infotainment and driver info screens now dominate the dashboard, which along with the spaceship looks give the Grand Picasso a futuristic flavour. Some people carriers can be rather drab, but not this one. The Grand Picasso doesn’t try and apologise for what it is, and that’s why it’s a winner.” Available since 3 January 2017, New Citroën C3 has already started racking up awards, having been honoured with the “Best Urbanite” title in BBC TopGear Magazine’s ‘Best Cars in the World’ issue. The Best MPV award from Contract Hire and Leasing.com is the second award that New Grand C4 Picasso has earned already for 2017, following the Best Seven-Seater prize in the Carbuyer Best Car Awards.

CITROËN REDEFINES COMFORT WITH ITS NEW PROGRESSIVE HYDRAULIC CUSHION SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY

Citroën has released details of its innovative new suspension technology as part of the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, which will ultimately deliver unrivalled levels of on-road comfort for owners of all Citroën models. For almost a century, comfort has been closely linked with the Citroën brand, in the same way that design and innovation has been part of its DNA. However, as expectations and driving habits have evolved, so too has the definition of comfort. The Citroën Advanced Comfort®programme addresses the expectations of today’s motorists with its all-new progressive hydraulic cushion suspension system, new seat technologies, improved body rigidity and acoustics, all to filter out road noise and vibrations. This is combined with a more simplified, yet rewarding, cabin environment. Citroën is demonstrating these advances via a prototype C4 Cactus known as the ‘Citroën Advanced Comfort® Lab’. New C4 Picasso range, which goes on sale in the UK on 1 September, is the first model to benefit from selected elements of the programme. To register your interest in New C4 Picasso, click here. CITROËN ADVANCED COMFORT®: A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO COMFORT Comfort means different things to different people. Indeed, a multitude of parameters contribute to the driving experience - damping, body stability, acoustics, seats, light, space, ergonomics and cabin layout. The Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme addresses all of these variables to deliver comfort that is characteristic of the brand and sets it apart from the rest of the market. Starting with New C4 Picasso, it is the brand’s intention to deliver its new technologies progressively over time on every model in the Citroën range, from C1 city car through to larger models. The programme, which Citroën will use to reaffirm its credentials and expertise in the field of comfort, has four simple objectives: • Filter out any exterior interference for a cocoon-like ride, with solutions for the suspension, vibrations and acoustics that deliver ‘driving comfort’. • Simplify life on board with generous space, functional storage compartments and an ingenious layout to provide well-being and ‘living comfort’. • Create an even easier driving experience with intuitive technology, driving aids that can be used every day, and digital continuity between the driver and the car to offer greater ‘functional comfort’. • Ensure peace-of-mind for the driver by displaying only information that is truly useful, and creating a relaxed interior ambience that provides ‘comfort of the mind’. NEW C4 PICASSO: REFLECTING CITROËN'S VISION OF COMFORT TODAY C4 Picasso range already sets the standard in the MPV sector. The recently revealed versions aim even higher with more welcoming interiors, generous equipment and enhanced dynamic qualities. In this way, New C4 Picasso models perfectly illustrate how the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme is set to deliver greater overall well-being for all occupants. THE ‘CITROËN ADVANCED COMFORT® LAB’: UNEQUALLED DAMPING QUALITY The ‘Citroën Advanced Comfort® Lab’ prototype C4 Cactus is the focal point of the brand’s redefinition of on-road comfort. When a car drives over a bump or dip, the disturbance is passed through the cabin and onto the occupants in three stages: the suspension action, the vibrations are then transferred to the vehicle body and the vibrations are felt by the passengers through the seats. Addressing this chain of events, the ‘Citroën Advanced Comfort® Lab’ prototype features three innovations that singularly, then collectively, reduce the vibrations felt by the passengers and thus significantly improve driving comfort. Suspension systems with progressive hydraulic cushions Whereas a conventional suspension system is comprised of shock absorbers, springs and mechanical stops, Citroën's new system adds two progressive hydraulic cushions - one for rebound and one for compression - at the top and bottom of each suspension unit. In this way, the suspension functions in two ways depending on the road surface: • In cases of slight compression and rebound, the springs and shock absorbers work together to control vertical movement without needing the hydraulic cushions. However, the new cushions provide the vehicle with greater freedom to deliver a ‘magic carpet’ ride, creating the impression that the car is flying over any bumps and dips in the road; • In cases of more significant compression and rebound, the springs and shock absorbers work together with the hydraulic cushions at the ends of the suspension travel. These new cushions gradually slow the movement, rather than having abrupt stops at the extremes of compression and rebound. Unlike a conventional mechanical stop, which absorbs the energy then partially returns it, the hydraulic cushion absorbs and dissipates the energy. Structural body bonding When the suspension has completed the damping process, the energy created by the irregular road surface is transferred to the vehicle body. The use of structural bonding techniques will significantly reduce this occurrence, thanks to increased overall stiffness. Using an industrial process specific to Citroën, the structural parts of the vehicle are bonded together using a discontinuous line of adhesive. An electrical weld point is positioned wherever the line of adhesive is interrupted to ensure optimum rigidity during assembly. This eliminates the toxic smoke that would be generated by welding and burning the adhesive. Seats inspired by the world of bedding A car’s seats provide the first impressions of comfort - from visual aesthetics to the reduction of on-road vibrations for the occupants. The new seats provide a better combination of comfort and all-important posture support thanks to the introduction of different foam densities. In addition, Citroën took inspiration from the bedding industry and how it has developed its memory-foam mattresses. By using several layers of special materials (polyurethane foam, viscoelastic or textured foam), Citroën has mirrored this bedding technology to deliver memory seats that adapt perfectly to the body shape of each person. With these unique properties, the seats regain their original shape from one passenger to the next.

CITROËN RELAY READY TO RUN RANGE EXPANDED

Citroën’s ‘Relay Ready to Run’ range of ready-bodied vehicles is being expanded and an all-new Euro 6 engine line-up is being introduced at the Commercial Vehicle Show - full details of these new engines will be available nearer the time of the CV Show. Now joining the established range of high-specification, competitively priced tippers, dropsides and Luton vans in the Relay Ready to Run range are: - A new ‘Plant & Go’ small plant carrier- A new car transporter- Two new Crew Vans Offering a very high payload, combined with practicality and versatility, the Plant & Go small plant carrier is an important addition to Citroën’s Relay Ready to Run range. One of the major advantages of the 3.5 tonne gvw KFS Special Vehicles Plant & Go conversion, for many fleets, is that it eliminates the need for a trailer, which is often seen as a costly capital investment. The vehicle has the ability to transport one large, or two or more smaller items of plant. Its unique design allows general site items to also be carried. Operators also have the option of using the vehicle as a traditional dropside to transport items such as jet washers, gas cylinders or scaffolding. The load area is easily accessible, due to a floor height of just 530mm from the ground. A key feature of the Plant & Go’s multi-function bodywork is its removable light alloy loading ramps, which double as the load bay’s sideboards. This innovation removes the need for a specific ramp or tail lift, and helps to keep the kerb weight of the vehicle down to an impressive 1,860kg. The Relay-based 3.5 tonne gvw car transporter has been converted by KFS Special Vehicles and specifically targets the vehicle logistics and dealer stock movement sectors. With a drop frame chassis design that is exclusive to KFS, the car transporter has a 1,760kg kerb weight, achieved thanks to innovative engineering and extensive use of lightweight materials. The car transporter specification includes a driver’s airbag, heated and electrically adjustable door mirrors, remote central locking, CD radio and electric windows, all as standard. The Relay Ready to Run car transporter offers a number of important benefits. Its low deck height results in a shallower ramp angle for improvedvehicle loading. It also boasts 2.44m (8ft) lightweight alloy ramps. Also joining the range are two new Relay Ready to Run Enterprise Crew Vans. Available in L1H1 and L3H2 configurations.  These safe, comfortable vehicle conversions – created by CoTrim – affords operators a large load space, as well as ample room for the driver and five passengers. The Relay Ready to Run Enterprise L1H1 Crew Van has a load floor length of 1,500mm, plus an extra 380mm under the rear seats. In the L3H2 model, there is a total floor load length of 2,535mm, plus the extra 380mm under the rear seats. With safety in mind, the Crew Vans’ rear seats have been designed and tested to comply with EU Whole Vehicle Type Approval standards. The integrated, moulded bulkhead has been tested to ISO 27956 for load restraint protection. These new models will, like the other models in the Relay Ready to Run range, be available from stock via Citroën’s Business Centre network and other large Citroën dealers. The Relay Ready to Run range is included in the Citroën LCV price list and has a full 2 year unlimited mileage/3 year 100,000 mile factory warranty, covering all elements of the chassis cab and the body conversion.

PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN POSITION ON EMISSIONS AND FUEL CONSUMPTION

PSA Peugeot Citroën confirms that its vehicles comply with emissions standards and takes the initiative to publish real-world fuel economy figures in partnership with an independent body. In light of the current media coverage on emissions and Diesel which impacts the entire automotive industry, PSA Peugeot Citroën would like to give better information to its customers, investors and other stakeholders. PSA Peugeot Citroën confirms that its vehicles have never been fitted with any software or device that detects emissions testing and triggers a pollution treatment system, including for nitrogen oxides (NOx), that is inactive in normal driving conditions. PSA Peugeot Citroën is the first carmaker to have extended “BlueHDi” Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology across all its diesel Euro6 passenger vehicles. This exhaust treatment system, for which the Group holds around 100 patents, is recognized by numerous publications as being the most effective NOx treatment technology. In the same vein, PSA Peugeot Citroën invented the particulate filter 11 years before it became a legal requirement for all carmakers with the introduction of the Euro 5 standard in January 2011. Committed to maintaining its customers’ trust, PSA Peugeot Citroën takes the initiative to: Publish real-world fuel economy figures for its main vehicles as soon as possible, with the process overseen by an independent body;Adopt technical measures to anticipate the future WLTP* procedure, which more accurately represents real-world conditions.*Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure

A PSA PROTOTYPE CAR TRAVELS FROM PARIS TO BORDEAUX IN AUTONOMOUS MODE

On Friday, 2 October 2015, one of the PSA Group's four autonomous vehicles travelled the motorway from Paris to Bordeaux to take part in the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) World Congress, which runs from 5 to 9 October. The 580km trip was completed entirely in autonomous mode, without driver involvement. The car autonomously adjusted its speed and changed lanes to overtake, taking into account other vehicles, speed limits and infrastructure. In July 2015, the Group became the first carmaker to obtain the relevant authorizations to carry out open road tests using four autonomous prototypes, and some fifteen such models in 2016. The PSA Group works to develop solutions and technologies to make the car of tomorrow smarter, in order to enhance driver comfort and adapt to changing customer behaviour and expectations. Autonomous driving features will help cut the number of accidents linked to human error and reduce driver fatigue in monotonous driving situations. These projects will soon be applied to production models, with the gradual deployment of driverless features. Commenting on this unique achievement in France, Carlos Tavares, Chairman of the Managing Board of the PSA Group said: "The journey made by our prototype today proves that autonomous vehicles are no longer of matter of science fiction. This ushers in a new era for mobility, which I find truly exciting." The PSA Group is presenting its autonomous vehicle and its car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure communication systems at the 22nd ITS World Congress in Bordeaux (5-9 October 2015. These systems, which offer a new source of information, use data transmitted by other vehicles and infrastructure to enhance awareness of the vehicle's surrounding environment. The idea is to improve road user safety by anticipating certain critical situations to reduce the number of accidents.
