Citroen C3 Aircross compact SUV spotted testing; design details revealed
French automaker Citroen is set to launch its C3 Aircross compact SUV in India later this year. In the latest development, a test mule of the upcoming car sans camouflage has been spotted testing on the roads, revealing its key design details. As per the pictures, it will have a split-headlamp setup, silvered skid plates, and steel wheels. Here are more details.
The Citroen C3 Aircross will have a boxy look, featuring a bonnet with DRLs placed on it, bumper-mounted rectangular-shaped headlights, and a wide air dam. It will be flanked by black roof rails, thick plastic cladding around the wheel arches, and steel rims. A window wiper, taillights with black inserts, and a large tailgate will be available on the rear end.
The Citroen C3 Aircross should draw power from a BS6-compliant 1.2-liter petrol engine linked to a 6-speed gearbox for handling transmission duties. The power figures will be revealed at a later date.
Details regarding the interiors of the Citroen C3 Aircross are yet to be revealed. However, it should have a spacious cabin with auto climate control and a multifunctional steering wheel. It should house a touchscreen infotainment console with support for the latest connectivity facilities. For ensuring the safety of the passengers, multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, and a rear-view camera should be available.
Pricing and availability details of the Citroen C3 Aircross will be revealed at the time of launch. However, it should cost less than the C5 Aircross, which starts at Rs. 29.9 lakh (ex-showroom). At this price point, it will take on Kia Sonet and Renault KIGER.
