CITROËN'S NEW PROGRESSIVE HYDRAULIC CUSHION SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY
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’.
The New C4 Picasso range, which goes on sale in Ireland from the 1 October, is the first model to benefit from selected elements of the programme.
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 the 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 the 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’.
