The new Citroen SpaceTourer has arrived in Ireland, with pricing starting at €38,300.

Available in three variants, including an extra long version which can seat up to nine people, the SpaceTourer is an MPV designed with both family and business buyers in mind.

The Citroen SpaceTourer is built on a new variant of the modular EMP2 platform used by the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso and the platform’s modular design allows for three body lengths: XS at 4.60m, M at 4.95m and XL (coming in 2017) at 5.30m.

Practical features include independent sliding and reclining seats that can be easily removed, sliding side doors with handsfree access and a rear window that opens to allow easy access to the boot.

The SpaceTourer is available in two trim levels: Feel and Business. The SpaceTourer Feel is available in three lengths, with eight seats, and is aimed at families. The SpaceTourer Business is available in two lengths with eight or nine seats and is aimed at buyers who provide professional passenger transport.

Equipment includes 17″ alloys, 7″ touchscreen with MirrorLink and Apple CarPay, cruise control, air con, rear parking sensors and electric sliding doors.

The Citroën SpaceTourer comes with Citroen’s new generation of BlueHDi diesel engines with 115, 150 or 180bhp.
