Autocar India tells about the interesting debut of the new Citroen C3 Aircross car. But wait: this is not the European version expected in 2024, but only the local Indian variant of the model. After all, it is worth reminding that India and Latin America have their own Citroen C3 version (even electric), simpler compared to the “European” we are used to.
And the new crossover Citroen C3 Aircross is built precisely on this simplified basis. However, it features increased body dimensions (total length of 4.3 meters), its own front bumper and lights, large 17-inch wheels, etc.
But the most important difference of the Indian Citroen C3 Aircross is hidden inside – it is an optional 7-seater interior, which is offered in addition to the usual 5-seater variant. The third row of seats is installed in the luggage compartment (444-511 l), of which almost nothing remains in this case. In addition, in the interior of the new Citroen C3 Aircross, it is worth noting the presence of a large 10-inch display, which is installed next to the control knobs of the conventional ventilation system – these are the Indian contrasts.
Want another one? For the Citroen C3 Aircross car, a 1.2-liter 110-horsepower gasoline turbo engine is declared: as if everything is logical, such an option is in the range of the Citroen company. However, for now, only a 6-speed manual transmission is offered for the novelty, and the version with an automatic transmission will appear later. This is how it is – an unusual, but interesting in its own way, 7-seater crossover Citroen C3 Aircross in the Indian version.
