Surprise! The all-new Citroen C3 Aircross is back, and it transformed itself from an innocuous hatchback into a compact crossover. However, the bigger news has something to do with its pricing. The all-new C3 Aircross is available from R399 900 for the 1.2-litre Feel, while the 1.2-litre Shine will set you back R424 900.
Apparently, Citroen is riding on the success of its previous gen C3 Aircross and now C5 Aircross SUVs, having sold more than 300,000 and 200,000 units respectively since launching in 2017. And according to Citroen, the compact hatchback segment accounts for nearly 28% of sales in 2019. Hence, Citroen went back to the drawing boards to give its new C3 Aircross a more outdoorsy attitude.
Based on what we’re seeing so far, the new Citroen C3 Aircross is every inch a crossover with lifted suspension, rugged body cladding, and a curious face derived from the smaller Citroen C3. The chrome-trimmed chevrons have been upgraded, extending out towards the LED Daytime Running lights, in the spirit of New C3, but with a more muscular approach. The LED fog lamps provide even more clarity and safety, lending motorists a sense of protection.
In addition, the customisation programme of New C3 Aircross has been upgraded to satisfy each customer looking for a unique SUV in their image that is both distinctive and distinguished. There’s a range of body colours to choose, all of which are completely new, 3 colour packs and two roof colours to choose from.
Step inside and you’ll be entertained by the 7-inch touchscreen which puts great emphasis on Citroën Connect Nav and the Mirror Screen function compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
