Last summer, the French brand announced its intention to be heavily active in the sub-category of touring vans and their surroundings, both in terms of equipment and by providing its vans as a base for third-party manufacturers who specialize in perhaps the most fun and inventive sector of the category. of van cars.
Without wasting time, shortly after the presentation of the new Spacetourer, the French brand is in a hurry to present an excursion variant called Citroen Holidays aimed at the most adventurous buyers who like this alternative type of motoring and excursion culture.
With a length of 4.98 m and a height of 1.99 m, the Citroen Holidays can offer accommodation for four passengers but also maximum flexibility precisely thanks to the above dimensions and thanks to the wise layout of the interior. Its touring equipment includes a kitchenette and toilet, completely removable in case the owner wants to use it as a standard van.
In the full excursion equipped version, a lifting roof is also included which allows the occupants to stand up and also ensures space for two also removable 1.0 x 1.95 m berths.
The one-piece rear seat can also be removed entirely while those sleeping below can benefit from the opening rear glass and shades for all the windows and the front windscreen. It should be noted that the retractable roof also has built-in shades as well as openings for the occupants to adjust the ventilation and brightness inside the car at will.
The mini kitchen is complete including a sink, two gas rings, a 16 liter fridge and the folding table, while it is worth noting that the two front seats can be rotated to face the table in question.
Holidays is equipped with optional electric sliding side doors which in turn allow the kitchen to have direct contact with the outside space kai. Rails are added to the roof which can accommodate optional folding canopies on each side, completing the above ‘indoor-outdoor’ concept while the table can also be moved outdoors.
The picture is completed by an abundance of storage spaces while natural spaces have been provided for the ten liter fresh water tank and another for dirty water while at the back of the French van there is a shower connected to another 25 liter water tank. Items that can be added include a portable toilet.
The roof can also accommodate photovoltaic cells while equipment also includes a Webasto stationary heating system, two sockets one inside and one outside for charging the battery and operating gadgets respectively as well as plenty of USB-A and USB-C ports.
According to the recommendations the Holidays will be available to order from spring being available with a 145bhp diesel engine and a six-speed manual gearbox or 180bhp in combination with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
