May 13, 2006 Citroen will use the Madrid International Motor Show later this month to unveil an adventurously styled C-Buggy off-road concept car. A derivative of the C-Airplay concept, the C-Buggy is Citroen’s futuristic interpretation of a two-seater, go-anywhere car. Clearly designed for warmer climes, due to the absence of a roof, windscreen and windows, the C-Buggy exudes a carefree charm whilst wide wheel arches, big wheels, glass door portholes and sump guard hint at its off-road credentials.

The wraps will also come off Citroën’s brand new 173BHP HDi diesel engine in Madrid. Later this year drivers of the Citroën C5 will be the first to experience the benefits of the company’s latest generation powerplant. Advancements include the fitment of a high performance parallel dual turbo and new combustion and injection systems that ensure the engine sets new standards in flexibility, driveability and fuel consumption.

Also on display will be Citroën’s innovative C4 with a new 6-speed electronic gearbox system that combines electro-hydraulic gearbox control for smooth, fast gear changing with automated gear and clutch management. It offers economy advantages and represents a real cost-conscious alternative to manual and automatic transmission.
