    Default Wild Rubis Concept Car

    What are peoples thoughts on the new Wild Rubis Concept Car?
    Personally I like the look of it, especially good looking when compared to the other SUVs on the market.
    Will it, or a derivative of it ever get made though?

    Best thing about that ad was the music. Very Bondish, James that is. Way too much concentration on the models/actors and not enough on the car, the star. Looks nice from what we see but.

    I think the nam RUBIS is missing a B and an H - RUBBISH.

    My wife remarked today how roomy the Xantia's boot was. She had been selling tickets for a charity car raffle, and the car displayed was an Audi A5 coupe. She wanted to put her stool into the boot as there will be another person there the next day with their own stool before she returns wanting hers. Anyhow, it didn't fit, so she stuck it in the Xantia where it will stay until she needs it next.

    On Monday I helped her set up. The car needed to be driven one foot so that it sat on four squares of carpets to stop the wheels sticking and marking the shopping centre's floor. Firstly, drop all windows to better display the car. Car has to be started to operate anything. Found the two front window switches. Couldn't find the rear ones, then I realised they were fixed. OK. Now move the car. Damn, where is the handbrake. No lever. No extra foot pedal. Ah, theres a little button next to the gear lever. Sliding it forward disengaged the parking brake. Every different car has a completely different idea on how to do the standard things. Worse, most have black interiors, I don't have my glasses, I am in hurry and now I have to do this intelligence test. Oh for the cabin ergonomics of a CX.

    Often when I am in a black mood, I think "If only we had slipped in a few more Dresdens, we mightn't have to suffer Audis or BMWs".

    The term "concept" is used a little liberally. It's been a long time between drinks for Citroen. You could stick any brand on that car, unfortunately people rarely get fired for being average. Behold the generic SUV, if Citroen don't buy it, "Wild Rubis" can shop it around all the other manufacturers, there must be another one that hasn't done an SUV yet.

    Just another faceless SUV isn't it? Why is this one worth talking about? I thought it was just a facelifted Mazda.
