The Citreon C3 Aircross was unveiled in June 2017 and will launch in India to rival the likes of Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, and Tata Nexon
The Citroen C3 Aircross made its world debut in June last year. It is based on the Citroen C3 that was unveiled in June 2016. The C3 Aircross was recently showcased at the 2018 Chengdu Motor Show. We covered the Chinese motor show LIVE from the venue and had a good look at the upcoming Maruti Vitara Brezza rival.
Unlike the earlier generation Citroen C3 Aircross that had a highly MPV-ish design, the current generation looks a lot better with its crossover look. It measures 4.08 meters in length, 1.77 meters in width and 1.63 meters in height. The handsome vehicle has a wheelbase of 2.54 meters. It has a boot space of 410 litres and maximum luggage-carrying capacity of 1,289 litres.
Internationally, the 2017 Citroen C3 Aircross is being sold with as many as five engine options – PureTech 110 petrol, PureTech 130 petrol, HDi 90 diesel, BlueHDi 100 diesel, and BlueHDi120 diesel. These engines are available with two transmission options – 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual, and 6-speed automatic.
The features list of the Aircross include bits like LED daytime running lights, 17-inch diamond-effect alloy wheels, 3D-effect rear lights, skid plates (front and rear), fully panoramic glass sunroof with a sun blind and LED light guide, rear quarter lights with “Venetian blind” print, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Citroen Connect Nav 3D navigation system featuring TomTom Traffic and voice recognition, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink, and wireless charging for smartphones.
The Citroen C3 Aircross also gets many driver assistance and safety systems such as automatic high-beam lights, Active Safety Brake function colour, Lane Departure Warning System, Blind Spot Monitoring System, head-up display, speed limit recognition system with recommendations, and Coffee Break Alert.
