MORE details have been released of the new Citroen C3 Aircross which is set to become one of the cheapest seven-seaters on the market.

At 4.39 metres in length, the five-seater version offers the best interior space in its class in row two and the seven-seater is a first for the compact SUV segment.

The car features a a head-up display and a compact steering wheel, along with new Citroën Advanced Comfort seats which have been redesigned for optimum support.

Comfort features include the Citroen Advanced Comfort suspension with dual progressive hydraulic bump stops - for the first time and on all versions.

It also has a 10.25-inch touch screen and will be available with a petrol engine as well as two electrified versions - a hybrid and a fully-electric model with a range of around 186 miles and a recharging time said to be 26 minutes from 20 to 80 per cent battery capacity.

Citroen says a larger battery will be introduced in 2025 extending the range to more than 250 miles.

The petrol model has a 1.2-litre PureTech three-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission while the hybrid uses a dual-clutch gearbox and is said to be able to drive in EV mode for around 50 per cent of the time in city traffic.

Both are available in either five or seven seat guises but the electric version of the C3 Aircross is five seat only.

The car is due on the road later in 2024 and although prices are still to be confirmed they are likely to start below £20,000.

With all seats deployed, the boot volume of the seven-seater is 40 litres and 330 litres in five-seat configuration.

The five-seater has more luggage space at 460 litres extending to a maximum of 1,600 litre with the rear seats folded.

Driver aids includeactive safety brake, active lane keeping assist, driver alert, speed sign recognition, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot detection and a reversing camera which can identify the distance between obstacles and the vehicle and warn of possible collisions.
