First look: Citroen Holidays Campervan

Citroen’s move to reinforce its position in the van life segment is taking shape with the unveiling of Citroen Holidays Campervan at one of Europe’s largest leisure and travel trade fair: the CMT in Stuttgart.

Available for sale from spring 2024 within the Citroen network, the new campervan allows up to four people to explore in complete freedom and great comfort, thanks to a generous and modular interior.

Citroen has partnered with conversion firm, Bravia Mobil, to market the new Citroen Holidays campervan.

Derived from the Citroen SpaceTourer, the Citroen Holidays campervan can be ordered directly from the Citroen network.

It will be available in the 5 SpaceTourer colours: White Kaolin, Black Perla Nera, and Grey Acier, complemented by the new Grey Titane and Green Kapari.

Holidays Campervan interior

Its retractable body-colored roof, as a standard feature, provides ample headroom.

It allows standing inside and accommodates up to 4 sleeping spaces. Indeed, the second-row bench, capable of hosting two people, is sliding and convertible to create a sleeping space of 1.15m wide and 1.90m long.

This bench is removable if the customer prefers more space on board.

At the top, a bed measuring 1.20m wide and 1.95m long allows sleeping close to the stars.

The cup-shaped mattress design reduces occupied space while ensuring great sleeping comfort.

Those sleeping in the lower section can enjoy the opening rear window for sleeping close to nature, along with vacuum blinds on the windshield and side windows.

Similarly, those in the upper part benefit from integrated blinds and a window in the bellows for managing ventilation and brightness.

Its kitchen, including a sink and two gas burners, a 16-liter fridge, and a retractable table, will allow for enjoyable indoor meals for four people thanks to the front seats pivoting toward the living space.

The two sliding side doors (optional electric) also enable cooking outside and dining outdoors on sunny days, with the retractable table that can be set up behind the kitchen.

And if the sun becomes too intense, Citroen Holidays is predisposed with a lateral rail on each side, allowing integration of a rolling awning.

The kitchen unit and toilets are removable, making it a habitable vehicle for everyday use, capable of transporting four people and carrying numerous items.

The two sliding side doors can be electric, facilitating access on board.

The table can be used for dining, working, playing cards, and can be stowed away to prioritize space on board when needed.

Citroen Holidays also features numerous storage spaces to maintain order inside the cabin.

It has a 10-litre tank for storing clean water and 10 litres for wastewater.

Citroen Holidays can also offer a shower at the rear of the vehicle, coupled with a 25-liter tank.

Removable toilets can also be equipped in the vehicle.

Citroen Holidays offers a programmable Webasto heating system to ensure optimal onboard temperature.

There’s also an incoming 230V recharge point outside and an internal 230V socket, 2 USB-A, and USB-C ports.

It has a wireless smartphone charger, particularly convenient, located on the central console within reach of the two front passengers. It is also possible to have a solar panel on the roof of the vehicle.

Holidays Campervan size

Its compact length of 4.98 meters offers great agility and ease of handling.

Its reasonable footprint also allows easier parking, while its height of 1.99 meters enables access to most parking lots and avoids local regulation constraints – it’s also advantageous for toll charges in many countries.

Holidays Campervan engine

Two diesel engines are available for Citroen Holidays: the BlueHDi 145 paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox, and the BlueHDi 180 paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

These two powerful and efficient engines allow the vehicle to cover long distances and explore new territories without constraints.

Inside, the new dashboard stands out with a unique design that combines elegance and even more practicality.

It highlights technology, especially with a new 10-inch HD touchscreen central display on its top part, and enhances functionality with expanded and smarter storage solutions.

The steering wheel is also new, with various integrated controls (phone, audio system, driving aids, etc.) and can be heated.

A 100% digital 10-inch instrument panel is now standard. In colour, it allows the driver to customize the display of key information while enjoying aesthetic graphical quality in high definition.

A large 10-inch HD touchscreen central display and a next-generation infotainment system, which in its top version, can host 3D connected navigation.

Inspired by smartphone ergonomics, ensuring great simplicity of use and smoothness, this touchscreen allows control over the multimedia environment like music or phone, as well as vehicle configuration functions.

It enables wireless smartphone mirroring via Wifi mirroring function, compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

It offers natural, ultra-smooth voice recognition, transforming this media system into a true personal assistant.

Driving aids include hands-free access and start, hill start assist, rear camera with Top Rear Vision, adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go function, but also safety-oriented technologies including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, driver fatigue alert, lane-keeping assist, collision risk alert, automatic headlights switching and sign recognition.
