With summer just a few weeks away, Citroën is unveiling the ideal special edition model for venturing out with your “tribe” in quest of the perfect wave: SpaceTourer Rip Curl. A new step forward in its partnership with Rip Curl following C4 Cactus Rip Curl in 2016 and C4 SpaceTourer Rip Curl and Grand C4 SpaceTourer Rip Curl in early 2018, SpaceTourer this time upholds the themes of sharing and adventure that unite the two brands. Based on a particularly attractive Feel trim-level model, the new Citroën SpaceTourer Rip Curl special edition features styling and technologies redolent of freedom and adventure, a natural combination for a modern 8-seater MPV perfect for getaways and strong on versatility. Citroën SpaceTourer Rip Curl is now available to order in France starting at €43,150.



After C4 Cactus Rip Curl, C4 SpaceTourer Rip Curl and Grand C4 SpaceTourer Rip Curl, Citroën and Rip Curl are today unveiling the SpaceTourer Rip Curl special edition. The new version marks a new stage in the collaborative effort between the two brands based on eminently stylish, contemporary and high-tech products.

The partnership between Citroën and Rip Curl is a natural meeting of two brands that develop stylish and high-tech products to enhance the well-being of their customers, for good times that never look back.  Driven by a shared affinity for creativity and innovation, here the two brands are expressing their thirst for adventure and the exploration of unknown ground, that which Rip Curl calls “The Search”. The two brands were a natural pairing for SpaceTourer, a modern MPV that expresses the values of adventure and boundless freedom. With excellent handling, on-road performance and practical technology, SpaceTourer harnesses all of Citroën’s expertise in terms of design, interior space, and comfort.

By once again joining forces with Rip Curl, whose name alone has evoked the world of surf since 1969, Citroën is boosting the spirit of adventure of SpaceTourer with a more expressive and singular version for lifestyles focused on relaxation and adventure. That philosophy is completely in tune with the Rip Curl brand, founded in Torquay, Australia.




Benefiting from Citroën expertise in spaciousness, practicality and in-car well-being, the new special edition features special colour themes, materials and technological equipment.


Based on the Feel trim level, Citroën SpaceTourer Rip Curl stands apart with its Onyx Black door mirrors and side strips, together with dark-tinted side windows and rear window, for extra character. SpaceTourer Rip Curl also gets 17'' Curve Grey alloy wheels and a special Rip Curl decal on the front doors. Five body colours are available: Arctic White, Aluminium Grey, Platinum Grey, Onyx Black, and Sand.

Inside, Citroën SpaceTourer Rip Curl is enhanced with prestigious materials. The dashboard is adorned with a laser-engraved design in silver, which also graces all the side panels, front and rear. The new special edition features a stylish instrument cluster with a colour screen and chrome surronds. It is also equipped with a multifunction leather steering wheel and special mats with coloured piping and a Rip Curl logo in rows 1, 2 and 3.


Packed with equipment, the Rip Curl special edition offers excellent grip in all conditions. The Grip Control system brings motorists peace of mind in their adventures and on all types of roads thanks to Winter tyres 3PMSF and five modes: Standard, Sand, All-Road, Snow and ESP OFF.

Citroën SpaceTourer Rip Curl also comes with a wealth of practical technologies ensuring top-level safety and everyday ease in use. It is notably equipped with power-folding door mirrors, Citroën Connect Nav on a 7” tablet, a colour head-up display, Blind Spot Monitoring, Front Park Assist and the Citroën Connect Box with the SOS Pack and assistance included. Practicality and access have been enhanced through an opening rear window and a second sliding side door. In terms of modularity and comfort, it boasts split-folding 60/40 rear benches sliding on rails that are easy to configure, remove and reinstall, as well as a flat-folding front passenger seat for transporting long objects (like a surf board) and additional rear air conditioning with a soft diffusion system keeping chilly draughts away from passengers’ heads.

To meet a broad range of needs, Citroën SpaceTourer Rip Curl is available in France in two sizes, M and XL, for transporting up to eight people and their luggages. It is powered by three frugal and high-performance latest-generation diesel engines : BlueHDi 120 S&S with a 6-speed manual gearbox, BlueHDi 150 S&S with a 6-speed gearbox and BlueHDi 180 S&S with the new EAT8 8-speed automatic gearbox.

Featuring prestigious styling and possessing true on-road qualities and singular comfort, the new Rip Curl special edition is now available to order in France starting at €43,150.
