Citroen C3 Aircross
CITROEN'S new C3 Aircross, which goes on sale on November 1, marks the beginning of the French company's European offensive in the increasingly popular compact SUV market.
Prices for the C3 Aircross have just been announced and will start at £13,995 rising to £19,720.
The new Citroen will be available in three trim levels, Touch, Feel and Flair and it comes with high-performance PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel engines as well as the latest generation of the PSA group's EAT6 fully automatic gearbox.
It is also well equipped with the latest new technology kit including wireless smartphone charging, grip control with hill descent assist, voice controlled 3D navigation, keyless entry and start, a reversing camera, lane departure warning and blind-spot monitoring.
Citroen claims the C3 Aircross also offers best-in-class space for maximum passenger comfort, with generous legroom in the front and rear, as well as modular boot space with a volume of up to 520 litres.
As far as looks go, the Aircross has a high-riding appearance with a raised ground clearance, elevated driving position, front and rear skid plates, large wheels and wheel arch extensions, coloured light surrounds, door mirrors, wheel centre caps, rear quarter window and roof bars.
Connectivity and infotainment is via a seven-inch touchscreen which controls the key vehicle functions such as air conditioning, radio, telephone and sat nav.
