Citroen C3 Aircross 2021: the third generation of the cross-hatch with modern driving and consumption characteristics.
At the auto show in Lyon, Citroën presented with great success the third generation of the subcompact cross-hatchback — Citroen C3 Aircross 2021.

The new model of the youth front-wheel drive five-door is presented in an updated technical package and with additional personalization options.


In relation to many European and Asian counterparts, the new Citroen C3 Aircross of the 2021 model looks stylish, monolithic and a little aggressive.

In the photos and videos of the front side, the new body shows some resemblance to the early corporate developments, however, there are also exclusive design solutions in the external appearance.

In the design features of the frontal view of the novelty, attention is concentrated:

• on longitudinal wave reliefs of the hood sidewalls;

• block layout supplemented with the brand logo and four-element shades of LED fog lights of the upper ventilation air intake;

• curly mesh of compact radiator lining;

• two-tier head optics installed in square recesses.

In the lower segment of the front, the curved panel of the lower air duct, decorated with three oval cutouts, performs functional and decorative functions.

• In the equally bright and dynamic design of the sidewalls, attention is drawn to the configuration of red roof rails, the tonal contrast of the black roof, mirrors and glossy side glass trim with light body decor, strict geometry of doorways with rounded outlines of square wheel arches.

• A small amount of wave relief and a non-standard pattern of four-lobed discs organically fit into the general entourage.

• The status of an off-road vehicle is confirmed by its high off-road clearance and small overhangs typical for a crossover configuration.

In the rear projection, the Citroen C3 Aircross 2021 at first glance can be identified by the rounded corners and massive spoiler lip, exclusive graphics enclosed in a black frame of the taillights, a compact format decorated with a corporate logo and a silver tailgate badge.

The massive plastic body kit is more stylish and expressive. The list of its design features includes a vertical arrangement of fog lamps and a protective panel decorated in the same style as the front.

The interior design is dominated by practicality and budget functionality. Restyling identified itself:

• improving the quality of finishing materials;

• additional functions of technical and electronic equipment;

• increased comfort and safety of all five seats.

It should also be noted modern ergonomics, decent build quality and manufacturability of installation. In particular, the upper part of the multifunction steering wheel, free from structural parts, provides an impeccable view of the instrument panel with the traditional combination of arrow dials and a color computer display for budget cars.

The central console includes a double set of ventilation and heating deflectors, a large format combined with command functions of a media monitor and a console for operational activation and setting the internal microclimate.

In terms of the composition and functionality of the on-board electronic equipment, the new cross-hatchback is identical to the analogues of the leading car brands.

• The advantages of the front seats are soft and elastic filler, various options for fabric or kozhimite upholstery, a standard set of lateral support, adjusting ranges of the seat heating system.

• The hospitable three-seater rear sofa compensates for the lack of special service with a comfortable fit, the presence of a folding armrest and additional legroom due to longitudinal movement of up to 150 mm.

For outdoor enthusiasts, a pleasant bonus will be the ability to increase the useful volume of the luggage compartment from 480 to 1280 liters, as well as lengthen the cargo area up to 2.4 m due to the partial dismantling of the front right seat.


The external dimensions, realized in harmonious proportions of 4150 x 1760 and 1640 mm, are typical for subcompact cars in the SUV body.

The PF1 platform allows you to use the installation and operational advantages of the combined MacPherson and torsion semi-independent suspension.

The assets of the chassis include a 2600 mm center base and 175 mm ground clearance, an electric power steering system, a full set of disc brakes, an effective running stabilizer, a typical set of active and passive safety systems.

• In the base version, the Citroen C3 Aircross 2021 is powered by a 1.2-liter turbocharged internal combustion engine, with a power output of 82 hp / 118 Nm, 110 hp / 205 Nm and 130 hp / 230 Nm peak thrust … As an economical alternative, the specifications of the 1.6-liter diesel with 90, 100 and 120 hp are announced.
