Ateco opportunity premieres at Geneva


Ateco Automotive says it's too early to decide whether Citroen's first SUV

February 28, 2007. Ateco Automotive says it’s too early to decide whether Citroen's first SUV, the C-Crosser, will join its New Zealand line-up.

The vehicle’s debut at the Geneva auto show comes within days of Ateco’s takeover of the brand here on March 1.

Ateco, a branch of Neville Crichton’s Australian-based Ateco Automotive Pty Ltd, already represents Fiat and Alfa Romeo.

The distinctive C-Crosser has a 116kW 2.2-litre diesel engine producing 380Nm of torque at 2000rpm. The engine can run on 30 percent biodiesel.

Drivers can switch between two-wheel drive, electronically controlled all-wheel drive or a lock setting for low-grip conditions.

Citroen says the C-Crosser will “ensure that we have a vehicle to suit all our customers' needs as an SUV, a compact MPV or a hatchback."
