Citroen C3 Aircross Design
The Citroen C3 Aircross shares distinct design elements with the C3 hatchback. It is pretty evident in its front fascia with sleek LED DRLs, flanking headlights, and a grille. The chunky bumper features an air dam dominated by a skid plate, while cladding accents both doors. At the rear, a muscular appearance is enhanced by C-shaped taillights and a substantial bumper. These design cues collectively define the C3 Aircross’s aesthetic identity, creating a unique and appealing look.
Interior and Features
The Citroen C3 Aircross offers a feature-rich interior. It gets a 10.2-inch touchscreen, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It also has a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, and a reverse camera. However, the base You variant has a 5-seat configuration and lacks certain amenities found in the 7-seat variants. The 7-seater has roof-mounted AC vents, the 10.2-inch touchscreen, speakers, reverse camera, rear wiper, rear defogger, and USB chargers. It maintains an impressive safety package with two airbags, ABS with EBD, ESC, hill-hold assist, TPMS, and reverse parking sensors. The cabin adopts a dual-tone theme while retaining the familiar AC vents and dashboard layout from the C3, presenting a well-appointed and inviting interior.

It’s paired with a six-speed manual transmission, boasting a claimed fuel efficiency of 18.5kmpl. An automatic transmission choice might become available at a later date.
