the peugeot rifter 4×4 concept is presented in a defined shade of ‘spangled’ grey that provides the perfect showcase for its robust look, designed for adventure. the matte black plate between the radiator grill and the boot effectively protects the front of the vehicle against spatter. several onyx black components were taken from the production vehicle and used on the wing mirrors, the radiator grill and even the roof bars, to complete the look. the french-automaker’s logo has been redesigned with yellow touches, and will appear on all of its future creations from now on (without the specific yellow paint).

the interior also boasts different colors and materials. the branded rifter chairs blend an embossed flecked grey textile with black alcantara. they are overstitched with a bright yellow thread, which is also found on the gussets of the gear lever. the yellow borders, made of ‘neoprene’ type ‘flex’ material recalls the bodywork color.the steering wheel of the i-cockpit is made of leather that is also overstitched with yellow and bears a peugeot marking of the same shade. the sophisticated dashboard design boasts satin grey decorative items specially for the occasion and uses the same smoked chrome strips as the exterior. the generous inserts in solid machined aluminum strengthens the style of the center console and the door panels. the brushed aluminium reveals the rifter name and plays with surfaces and reflections.
