New Citroën compact SUV

After the recent C5 Aircross reveal, Citroën is stepping up its international offensive in the SUV segment with the New C3 Aircross, its new-generation compact SUV.

With “unique” body styling, its generous forms are said to lend it a powerful and fresh attitude. The car will have some 90 exterior combinations and five interior design scheme choices.

Said by the manufacturer to have been inspired by customers’ expectations, this SUV features unrivalled spaciousness, modular design, and a panoramic glass sunroof.

Equally at ease in the city and on the open road, the new model’s abilities have been enhanced with the Grip Control and Hill Assist Descent systems. It will also be equipped with 12 driver assistance systems, such as the head-up display and four connectivity technologies, such as wireless charging for smartphone.

The New Citroën C3 Aircross Compact SUV will be launched in Europe in the second-half of this year.
