New small crossover from Citroen

Citroen will be adding a small SUV to its range in the autumn, writes Brian Byrne.

The C3 Aircross will have the option of Grip Control for difficult terrain, and a Hill Descent facility for the same.

The design cues are inspired by the C-Aircross shown at the Geneva Motor Show last March.

Citroen say it will be the most spacious crossover in its segment and will offer a boot volume with all seats in use of 410L.

A full range of driver assistance systems will be available, including active safety braking, auto high-beam lights control, and speed sign recognition.

The car will be available in a wide range of colours, including contrasting ones for the roof, as well as colour packs. There are five available interior designs.

Petrol engines of 80/110/130hp will be offered, as well as 100/120hp diesels. Manual and automatic transmissions will be available.
