Roof colours


The roof colour options remain the same. With the roof panel available in white, black, or monotone (body coloured).


Interior ambiences


There are three choices when it comes to the interior ambience. All of which have varying effects on the seat decor, dashboard textures and other features. These are available in a standard ambience, Metropolitan Graphite, and Hype Grey.


Prominent new front end


The new C3 Aircross has not only introduced fresh new colours to add to its design, but its front end has been completely updated to produce a bold and unique B-SUV.

What is most prominent is the new grille with a completely unique geometric pattern, that now extends out to the headlights. Headlights that have also adopted a more modern signature.

Aluminium-grey skid plates have been added as well – although a portion of the plates will feature different colours based on the colour pack you choose. A higher set bonnet completes the line up of new front end features.


Citroën Advanced Comfort


Citroën already prides itself on supplying class-leading ride comfort but the new C3 Aircross takes that a step further. Its Advanced Comfort seats aims to improve drivers comfort in four ways, visual, initial, postural, and dynamic comfort.

Its standout feature is the additional 15mm of foam provided in the seats that are immediately noticeable when you sit down in the Aircross. Visual comfort is aided by the unique padding and distinctive Citroën stitching, that boosts the appearance of its interior.

Unrivalled space and versatility


All of its predecessor’s versatility and spaciousness have been kept in the Citroën C3 Aircross, keeping it among the best in its class. Spaciousness has been prioritised by the French manufacturer. Outstanding leg and head room is further bolstered in the rear seats via longitudinal adjustment of up to 150mm.

None of this is at the expense of the C3 Aircross’s versatility, in fact it adds to it. The adjustment of the rear seats means that boot space can be increased from 410 litres to 520 litres with the seats in their furthest forward position. This can be increased to 1,289 litres with the rear seats folded down.

If you’re no stranger to a trip to IKEA, the Citroën C3 Aircross might just be the perfect car for you. Its flat-folding passenger seat increases its maximum load length to 2.40m – so transporting furniture is a doddle.

The spaciousness of the latest Citroen is made to feel even more impressive by the exceptional amount of light that is let in to the C3 Aircross. An optional panoramic glass sunroof really opens up the interior and increases the brightness nicely.


Interior technology


Depending on the version you opt for, the new Citroën C3 Aircross comes equipped with a larger 9.0in touchscreen. Interaction, clarity, and practicality are all enhanced by the crisp high-quality screen. Citroën Connect Nav, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay™ are all functional via the new touchscreen.

Wireless smart phone charging and keyless entry/start are extra features that vastly improve convenience inside and out the latest C3 Aircross.

Intuitive driving aids


Citroën has always aimed to simplify life and heighten adventure and the updates to the C3 Aircross really amplify these ambitions.

Certain versions come with up to 12 intuitive driving aids. The most impressive of which include:

  • A head-up display to allow useful information to remain in the driver’s line of vision
  • Speed sign recognition and recommendation
  • Active safety brake
  • Automatic high/low-beam headlights
  • Park assist
  • Top rear vision reversing camera

Varying terrains will be no issue for drivers of the Citroën C3 Aircross – Grip Control and Hill Descent Assist can all be included with the latest upgrade. The latter of which maintains a safe speed on even the steepest of descents. Grip Control enables users to adjust the car’s front-wheel traction depending on the terrain.
