CITROËN C3 AIRCROSS – 250,000 ALREADY SOLD ACROSS EUROPE
Since its launch late in 2017, C3 Aircross Compact SUV has established a strong position in the B-SUV segment, bringing a distinctive, comfortable and practical offering to the sector. With its unique, customisable good looks, benchmark interior space and peerless modularity – as well as 12 driver assistance systems and connectivity features designed to make life easier – it is not surprising that the model is so popular amongst discerning compact SUV customers.
In recognition of its breadth of talents in real world use, Citroën C3 Aircross Compact SUV has won a host of prestigious awards. This year alone, UK accolades include ‘Small SUV of the Year’ in the Auto Express New Car Awards; ‘Compact Crossover of the Year’ in the Company Car Today CCT100 Awards; and ‘Best Small SUV’ in the Business Motoring Awards 2019.
True to the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, C3 Aircross Compact SUV provides convincing levels of on-board comfort, with a commanding driving position and a relaxed driving experience. Equally at ease in the city and out on the open road, the model's abilities are enhanced by the availability of Citroën’s Grip Control® system with Hill Descent Assist.
In addition to the distinctive style and comfort levels on-board, C3 Aircross Compact SUV continues to offer unrivalled levels of modularity and flexibility. For example, on the top specification ‘Flair’ trim level – which has accounted for over three quarters of UK sales in 2019 – a sliding two-thirds, one-third rear bench is fitted as standard. This useful feature allows customers to prioritise boot space over rear legroom, as and when required. The sliding rear seat function also allows easy access to the top tether points, which are located on the backrests, without having to go through the boot when fitting a child seat.
A significant player in the segment, C3 Aircross Compact SUV has already sold more than 250,000 examples in Europe, making it the second best-selling passenger car in Citroën’s range. Drivers are attracted to its body styling and ‘optimistic’ design – each a positive expression of individuality. This approach is enhanced through the model’s personalisation options, which customers can use to customise the vehicle based on their own preferences.
Across Europe, a full 25% of C3 Aircross Compact SUV sales feature the bi-tone roof option, and 20% feature a Colour Pack. Through its versatility, C3 Aircross Compact SUV is a transition model that appeals to a wide demographic, from young families who value modularity and safety, to adventurers who want to stand out and go anywhere.
