Peugeot to debut SXC Concept in Shanghai

Peugeot has released images and details of the SXC Concept – a crossover for the Chinese market which will be exhibited at the upcoming Shanghai Auto Show.

Designed at the China Tech Center- one of Peugeot’s Style Studios - the SXC (Shanghai Cross Concept) will be an SUV which aims for the refinement of upmarket saloon vehicles. The measurements of the SXC’s simply styled body are a length of 4.870m, a height of 1.610m and a width of 2.035m.

Some notable features are a part of the SXC’s exterior including a ‘floating’ grille which appears as though it is separate from the bodywork, and ‘feline’ LED headlamps which echo Peugeot’s trademark lion emblem. Other exterior features are tapered mirrors with embedded rear view cameras, 22 inch wheel rims, a two-part panoramic roof and reverse-hinged doors. The only interior details released by the manufacturer so far are that the passenger compartment will be ‘particularly vast.’

Adhering to the current trend of most concept cars, the SXC will also be a hybrid vehicle. Using Peugeot’s Hybrid4 technology a 1.6 litre 160 kW internal combustion engine will drive the front wheels, while a 70 kW electric motor will drive the rear wheels. This permits all four wheels to be driving for increased safety and grip as well as a zero emissions mode a low speeds. Regular driving will see emissions of 143 g/km of CO2 and a combined cycle fuel consumption of 5.8 l/100km. 

The vehicle will be unveiled in the metal at the Shanghai Auto Show on April 19.
