“C3 Aircross still expresses all its modernity and originality with a true SUV attitude, an unmatched roominess and modularity and technologies that make everyday life easier. We wanted to capitalise on these strong points and bring it towards greater maturity in the expression of its design and more comfort on board. The result is very perceptible! Its face changes radically with a much more angular and assertive front-end, the new seat construction reinforces the well-being experience inside the vehicle. The new C3 Aircross ticks all the boxes of an SUV “by Citroën” and has all the assets to continue its commercial success.

|01. MORE ASSERTIVE DESIGN AND ENHANCED CUSTOMISATION
While body styles are becoming increasingly low slung and similar to those of saloons, C3 Aircross has gained more assertive SUV design with a high-volume body conveying a spacious interior and a road-dominating stance through raised ground clearance and large wheels. Its singularity has been enhanced with lower-body and wheel-arch protections, front and rear skid plates, and roof bars with full and generous forms. On launch, the design and customisation possibilities of C3 Aircross expressed a sense of friendliness and freshness. Today, New C3 Aircross has reached maturity. While keeping all of its originality and mindset, its playful attitude has evolved and the model has been upscaled and gained a more assertive, mature and high-end personality commensurate with expectations in the segment.
MORE EXPRESSIVE FRONT END
New C3 Aircross features more assertive design with an entirely redesigned front face enhancing the model’s personality and status. Inspired by the CXPERIENCE concept car and first introduced on New C3 in 2020, it represents Citroën’s new signature in 2021, with an assertive, branded and unique identity.
The new front face immediately attracts the gaze, notably with the new headlamp signature. The chrome-trimmed chevrons have been upgraded, extending out towards the LED lights, in the spirit of New C3 and New C4, but with a more muscular approach. The LED lights provide even more clarity and safety, lending motorists a sense of protection. C3 Aircross also sports a new grille with a brand-new geometric pattern and a new silver-grey skid plate with coloured inserts that enhance the model’s robustness.
The new front face has greater structure with the impression of a higher-set bonnet. It also has a more contemporary feel, more expressive and robust.
With its firm stance and high-set, horizontal bonnet, together with its generous volumes and 360° protections echoing the uninterrupted glazed area around the body, New C3 Aircross boasts assertive looks that instantly set it apart in the B-SUV segment.
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.
Outside, customisation has been upgraded with a total of 70 possible combinations through:
C3 Aircross proposes new wheel rims with an even more graphic and dynamic design in 16″ and 17″, both available in diamond-cut or full-black versions, offering customers the choice of a more refined or more virile look.
The customisation upgrade continues inside with a range of 4 ambiences, each with its own identity, to meet the expectations and desires of each customer:
The refinement of the Metropolitan Graphite and Hype Grey ambiences is underscored by Citroën’s distinctive new topstitching, unique on the market, which is reflected in a series of stylised chevrons. This topstitching was introduced on New C4.
02. BRINGING SERENITY TO CUSTOMERS ACTIVE LIFESTYLE
ADVANCED COMFORT SEATS TO FEEL GOOD
New C3 Aircross makes customers feel like they are at home by further enhancing in-car comfort through the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme.
In addition to suspension settings affording class-leading ride comfort, C3 Aircross offers even greater travelling comfort with its new Advanced Comfort seats, first seen on C4 Cactus and C5 Aircross. Available with the Urban Blue, Metropolitan Graphite and Hype Grey ambiences, Advanced Comfort seats improve seating comfort through four comfort aspects: visual comfort, welcome comfort, postural comfort and dynamic comfort:
CLASS-LEADING SPACIOUSNESS, MODULARITY AND LIGHT
New C3 Aircross keeps all of its class-leading modularity, spaciousness and light, for even more well-being and versatility in use. With its compact body length of 4.16 m, for precise and agile handling, C3 Aircross constitutes a unique offering in its segment with unrivalled cabin space.
Boasting outstanding spaciousness, with exceptional rear leg room and head room for the segment, New C3 Aircross offers unrivalled modularity with a rear bench sliding 150 mm in two independent parts as well as a flat-folding front passenger seat providing a load length of 2.40 m for transporting particularly long objects such as furniture kits and sports equipment in complete peace of mind. Boot volume can be increased from 410 l to 520 l with the rear bench in its forward-most position and up to 1,289 l with the rear bench folded down.
Another key strength of the interior is its exceptional brightness, thanks to large glazed surfaces and a panoramic opening glass roof that lets the light flood in.
C3 Aircross is also even more functional thanks to a new, more meticulous central console featuring a large storage space at the rear that can be accessed by front- and back-seat passengers and closed with a sliding shutter. Storage spaces are laid out conveniently for all passengers, including a small tray in front of the front passenger, cup holders built into the folding central backrest on the rear bench, pockets on the back of the front seats, and numerous storage areas at the bottom of the central console.
