Citroen has announced a series of updates for the C3 Aircross, with a focus on lower carbon dioxide emissions, enhanced comfort and equipment.
Accounting for over three quarters of sales this year, the range-topping Flair is the trim level that has undergone most changes. New (and exclusive) to it is the 1.2-liter PureTech engine that’s Euro 6.3 compliant. The petrol burner develops 130 PS (128 hp / 95 kW) and is coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Furthermore, the C3 Aircross Flair will incorporate the Urban Red interior trim as standard, along with an ergonomic folding driver’s armrest and seatback pockets. These join the list of standard equipment that includes Citron Connect Nav with 3-year subscription to TomTom Live, keyless entry and go, reversing camera, Active Safety Brake, Connect Box Emergency and Assistance System, 17-inch alloy wheels and others.
The exterior of the subcompact crossover remains highly customizable with different color packs, including the new Pepper Red, Cumulus Grey and Perla Nera Black that are added to the existing Natural White, Breathing Blue, Platinum Grey, Spicy Orange and Soft Sand.
Celebrating the firm’s centenary this year is the new C3 Aircross Origins Collector’s Edition, which is priced at £19,725 ($23,863/€21,741). The entry-level Feel starts at £18,225 ($22,048/€20,088) and the Flair at £20,480 ($24,776/€22,573, while tith the new PureTech 130 EAT6 powertrain, the top-of-the-line spec starts at £22,080 ($26,712/€24,337). The revised range will go on sale in Great Britain in October.
