New C3 AIRCROSS launches the Citroën’s offensive in the crowded SUV sector. This stylish new SUV brings its own fresh, unique styling to the market. With its, robust looks and command driving position the C3 Aircross has been launched ahead of an even larger model next year the New C5 Aircross SUV.
The C3 Aircross is a comfortable and easy car to drive. The car is relatively tall, with its raised ground clearance and higher seating position , general outward visibility is very good.
A complete range of options are available to make your C3 Aircross as individual as you dare. A range of great body colours in combination with different roof colours; there are more choices to be made in the interior with colourful accents in trim and leather /cloth.
The seats are trimmed in interesting colour coordinating fabrics and the materials in the car are tactile and hardwearing. The highly versatile interior offers the ability to slide rear seats into different configurations to accommodate more or less luggage as required. Boot space is very good with 410 litres available, sliding the rear seats increases this to 520 litres and folding them even more 1289 litres.

Touchscreen connectivity is well presented, and apple carplay or Android Auto is a worthwhile addition. There are many safety systems available and most are unobtrusive to the driver.
All of the models in the range of New Citroen C3 Aircross produce low emissions from the efficient and refined choice of engines. Choose diesel or petrol and fuel economy is very good.
The New C3 Aircross styling may not be to everyone’s taste, the unique practical qualities of this design certainly make it a stand-out car on the road. I really liked the unique, quirky originality on the car.
The C3 Aircross range pricing begins at £13,995 with pricing going up to £22,290 a whole host of options is available including Grip control, which enhances the grip of the front wheel drive in slippery situations.
