Citroën C3 Aircross 2024: a utility vehicle for the whole family

Citroën C3 Aircross 2024 range

Back in 2017, Citroën wanted to try his luck in the emerging B-SUV segment with the Citroen C3 Aircrossa model that intended to replace the previous C3 Picasso with the same practical essence of its predecessor but with a touch more attractiveness and functionality in case you wanted to leave the asphalt. The recipe was successful and now, more than five years later, the time has come to welcome its second generation.

With respect to the firstborn, the changes are notable. Starting with the aesthetics, we see a set that adapts the features of the new C3 to a even more SUV style (the crossover reaches its maximum power in the history of the model) with bumpers that simulate lower protections, more aggressive lines that leave behind the rounded and friendly character of the previous Aircross, larger wheels with up to 690 mm in diameter and more than 20 cm of free height to the ground.

Citroën C3 Aircross, for the first time with 7 seats

Another of its great novelties - and surely the main characteristic - is that, with only 4,39 meters long, it will be capable of offer up to 7 seats. This, without a doubt, differentiates it from its most direct competitors (SEAT Arona, Nissan Juke, Fiat 600 or the successful Yaris Cross) and also makes it one of the most suitable options for large families who need a more accessible alternative to the compact or mid-size SUVs. Both the 5-seat and 7-seat versions will share a wheelbase of 2,67 meters.

The interior, in terms of equipment and design, will not vary with respect to what we already know about the C3 MY2024 that has just passed through our hands (remember to subscribe!) So, we will see a camouflaged digital instrumentation on the left side of the dashboard and a 10,25-inch center screen with all types of connectivity and a rear view camera that will facilitate parking maneuvers.

The trunk, depending on the configuration of the rear seats (65 mm further back in the five-seat C3 Aircross), will offer a capacity of 460 or up to 1.600 liters, in case the backrests of the additional rows are folded down.

The mechanical range has the same 100 HP PureTech with a six-speed manual gearbox and the same 113 HP electric version that can be associated with the C3 simply. Furthermore, the French manufacturer announces a C3 Aircross microhybrid as an option with an Eco label that will declare 136 HP, thanks to the 1.2 PureTech engine with distribution chain and the little help of a 48-volt electrical network.

Prices start at 18.990 euros for gasoline and 26.490 euros for zero emissions.
