Following the premiere of New C5 Aircross in April, Citroën is stepping up its international SUV offensive with the reveal of New C3 Aircross, a compact SUV with a fresh and assertive personality.
Citroen’s new generation of SUV is further epitomized by the new C3 Aircross, which features the Brand’s Advanced Comfort program. New C3 Aircross offers a sense of well-being on-board. Inspired by the C-Aircross Concept, which was presented at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, New C3 Aircross brings a breath of fresh air to the compact SUV segment.
Exterior-wise, the new C3 Aricross stands out with its unique body styling and unprecedented personalization choices. The compact SUV is a 4.15m long. It boasts unique body styling that is fully representative of the current Citroën range, along with all the attributes of a robust and protective SUV, raised ground clearance, an elevated driving position, front and rear skid plates, large wheels and wheel arch extensions. The body styling is underscored by strong graphic features, such as the touches of color on the roof bars and the ‘Venetian Blind’ rear quarter-lights.
Innovation is demonstrated through its levels of comfort as part of the Citroën Advanced Comfort program, inside the new C3 Aircross. This means plenty of space on-board, a modular design, and a bright and airy passenger compartment. New C3 Aircross is a contemporary vehicle that is connected and equipped with a range of technologies that make life easier in the city and out on the open road.
The horizontal-designed cabin is home to broad and comfortable seats, and offers class-leading space (headroom and legroom), unrivalled modularity (split/sliding rear seats), a fold-flat front passenger seat (for a load length of up to 2.40m) and exceptional boot volume (410-liters, which can increase to 520-liters). Well-being is also assured by a cabin that is flooded with natural light, thanks to the large opening panoramic glass sunroof. New C3 Aircross features ingenious storage spaces, including a wireless smartphone charging area in the central console. It is also available with a complete range of driver assistance systems, such as the Color Head-up Display, Active Safety Brake, Intelligent Beam Headlights and Speed Sign Recognition and Recommendation, as well as useful technologies including Park Assist and Citroën Connect Nav.
