Citroen C3 Aircross compact SUV hits 100,000 sales in less than a year since it’s launch in October 2017. Over 70,000 of these sales occurred in 2018 alone.
With the introduction of the C3 Aircross, many were worried that the this new model would be as impressive as the outgoing C3 Picasso and thanks to a plethora of awards handed over in the past 10 months, the C3 Aircross has gone from strength to strength. It has become Citroen’s second most popular model with only the C3 beating it.
The popularity of SUVs has considerably grown in recent years. Drivers are seeking a more bold, high riding and dynamic drive which was previously fulfilled by a traditional hatchback. Whilst high-riding vehicles tend to be thirsty at the petrol station and uncomfortably bouncy, the C3 Aircross has shown that neither of these be true.
Fitted with an award-winning PureTech engine or an extremely economical BlueHDi diesel and economy for these spacious vehicles are more (much more) than you can expect.
For a car that is focused on family, it is essential that safety comes first and C3 Aircross does not disappoint. Fitted with two ISOFIX mountings with top tether ensures your child’s car seats are safely secured to the chassis.
Driver, front passenger, front lateral and curtain airbags are all standard as well as Lane Departure Warning and Speed limit recognition and recommendation. C3 Aircross is fitted with twelve of the latest driving aid technologies and four connectivity technologies making your journey more comfortable and safer.
It is because of this and the strong chassis, that the C3 Aircross was awarded a five-star EuroNCAP rating. In fact you can view the results of these tests here.
“In the side barrier test, protection was good for all main body areas and the C3 Aircross scored maximum points”
