The updated Citroën C3 Aircross is now available to order in Europe, with prices in France starting at €18,850 for petrol and €22,800 for diesel variants. Prices in the UK start at £17,320.
As for styling, the front fascia has been squeezed and stretched, and as a result, the lower grille now looks massive while the overall front fascia looks rather busy compared to the outgoing model. That said, I do like the way the lower lamps have been integrated with the upper grille. The rest of the car remains almost unchanged except for a new set of 17-inch rims. The C3 Aircross offers a total of 70 exterior combinations with 7 body colors (3 new colors: Khaki Grey, Voltaic Blue and Polar White), 4 Color Packs and a choice of white or black roof.
The cabin layout and the dashboard remain unchanged, however, the buyer can choose from 4 ambiences or themes: standard ambience, Urban Blue ambience, Metropolitan Graphite ambience and Hype Grey ambience. Depending on the trim, other features include Advanced Comfort seats, a new 9-inch central touchscreen, Android Auto & Apple CarPlay connectivity, wireless smartphone charging, a color Head-Up Display, and up to 1,289-litres of luggage space.
As for safety and driver assistance, the C3 Aircross gets Active Safety Brake, speed sign recognition, Grip Control with Hill Descent Assist, Park Assist and the Top Rear Vision camera.
Moving on to the juicy bits of the story, the updated C3 Aircross will be available with PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel engines: PureTech 110 with a 6-speed manual, PureTech 130 with a 6-speed auto, BlueHDi 110 with a 6-speed manual, and BlueHDi 120 with a 6-speed automatic.
