Citroen Metropolis Concept
Think of stretched luxury limousines and what comes to mind? Lincolns, Benzes, Maybachs...but Citroens? That's exactly the kind of territory the French automaker is hoping to cover with the new Metropolis.
Strictly a concept car for the time being, the Citroen Metropolis is due to be unveiled next month at the Shanghai Motor Show, which follows only weeks after the Beijing expo where BMW is set to debut its long-wheelbase 5 Series, Audi the new A8 L and Volkswagen the new Phaeton. But at 5.3 meters, the Metropolis is bigger than any of them.
Power is provided to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox from a hybrid powertrain capable of adapting its output from 272 horsepower all the way up to 460 when needed.
