Citroën’s new range of models brings an assertive design to compact body styles, creating models that are both sporty and practical. New for summer 2017, Citroën’s latest release is a compact crossover with rugged personality for fun driving in and out of the city.
The new Citroën C3 Aircross has an undeniably sporty look with an assertive stance and polished accents. It’s taller than a supermini, features a plated bumper and has slick roof bars for carrying sports equipment. As you would expect in a new Citroën, it showcases the signature two-tier lights with LED running lights linking to the grille and a pair of oblong headlights underneath. Contrasting paint accents feature on the headlamp surrounds, roof bars and wing mirrors, and there are over 90 colour combinations to suit every taste. Bold alloy wheels boast a unique four-leaf design to catch the eye when they’re spinning fast. Only 4.15 metres in length, it’s still a compact car that excels in the city.
A family car at heart, the Aircross has a modular seating arrangement that’s easy to adjust to suit you better. With its tall roofline, you can get lots of luggage in the 410-litre boot, and you can fold down the seats, including the front seat, to carry larger gear. Sporty detailing continues inside to match its SUV-like styling with a clutter-free dash and various two-tone colour schemes. Choose the panoramic sunroof to increase natural light and the feeling of space, and you can fold it back electronically for open-roof enjoyment in summer. For your convenience, there are stowage points around the cabin including a place in the central console for your smartphone with a wireless charging point.
A generous raft of technology keeps you safe on the road. Opt for the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme to get 12 state-of-the-art convenience systems. These include head-up display which projects your speed on the windscreen, park assist that guides you into small spaces, and Blind Spot Monitoring so you always know if there’s a hazard out of view. Most of the models come with a touchscreen in the centre of the dashboard that allows you to use all the features, including most of these 12.
With its rugged stance, the Aircross offers the driving experience of an SUV with the genuine fun you expect of a car the size of a supermini. Grip Control® helps you to venture out of the city and still enjoy a steady drive, and there are different driving modes available should you wish to take on difficult roads. There are five engines to choose from with both petrol and diesel variants on offer. Power outputs range from 80bhp to 130bhp – the latter is the most potent option. It’s a PureTech petrol unit that’s synchronised with a six-speed gearbox. Start/stop technology helps you save on fuel and lets you relax when stationary.
