As it is reported by Carscoops, Citroen is already preparing to replace the C3 Aircross with a new generation. After all, the first Citroen C3 crossover was presented in 2017 and has already undergone a planned update. Now there is only general information that has become known, but it’s a lot.
Therefore, the Citroen C3 Aircross will retain the general design of the second generation, but will become more “aggressive”: highlighted hood and acute headlights emphasize SUV style, and a large passenger zone guarantees space in the interior. Overall, the design of the new Citroen C3 Aircross should resemble the updated model Citroen C5 Aircross. At the same time, there will be a wide selection of bright colors and the possibility of decorative decoration in various packages.
Technical changes are much more radical than appearance. Citroen C3 crossover Aircross must be built on the CMP platform (or ECMP for electrical versions) that is already used for Citroen C4 cars and Citroen C4 Х. By the way, the mention of electrical versions is important. After all, Citroen C3 Aircross can receive two of them at once – 136 hp or 100 hp for basic modification. In addition, gasoline variants of the model will be electrified: mass introduction of soft hybrids is expected based on Puretech gasoline engines. This will not only improve the specifications, but also allow abandoning the turbodiesel.
The new Citroen C3 Aircross must be presented in 2024, and the first tests of camouflaged prototypes should start earlier-in 2023. That is, soon we will be able to find out how close these expectations will be to reality for the Citroen C3 Aircross.
