Citroen to reveal Finding Nemo-themed MPV concept at Bologna show
4 December 2007

Citroen will reveal this five-seat MPV concept at the Bologna motor show later this week, and it's already confirmed for production in Europe.The Nemo Concetto concept is based on the Citroen Nemo van, which will enter the commercial vehicle range in early 2008.The compact, high-roofed MPV is actually shorter than a Ford Fiesta, which might make it perfect for the supermini-obsessed UK market. Unfortunately it may not go on sale over here for fear of affecting sales of the larger Berlingo Multispace.The market for van-based cars in the UK is a small one – only 13,000 units were sold in 2006, and Citroen owns up to half of that segment with the popular Berlingo. Not wanting to miss an obvious marketing opportunity, the Nemo Concetto concept comes with a Finding Nemo theme, which consists of Clown Fish paintwork and images of the Disney film’s characters on the seatbacks.You may be relieved to find out that the fishy theme won’t make it to production models.

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out

    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
