Citroen C3 Aircross 2022: new look and old technology.
The charismatic Citroen C3 Aircross mini-crossover debuted more than three years ago, but has never become a major player in the B-SUV segment of the European market.

For 2020, he found only 75,281 buyers, while competitors in the face of Renault Captur and Volkswagen T-Roc sold 178,724 and 158,638 copies.

Restyling is intended to change the situation, which brought the SUV a new «face», an improved multimedia system and fresh trim schemes.

The 2022 Citroen C3 Aircross will go on sale this summer. Prices will be announced later, but they are unlikely to go far from the current ones — now, recall, the minimum cost of a car is 18,500 euros.

The new Citroen C3 Aircross will reach Russia in the second half of 2021 — early 2022. The current version of the SUV is offered by us at a price of 1,539,000 rubles.

Model body design

During restyling, the crossover retained its silhouette, as well as the design of the sidewalls and stern. But the nose was completely rethought — a different optics appeared, other outlines received branded chevrons, the geometry and pattern of the radiator grill were updated.

The lower part of the bumper has got an original silver-gray trim with colored inserts. With the renewal of the «front end», maturity and solidity should replace the previous playfulness according to the plan of the developers.

Traditionally, the Citroen C3 Aircross offers many customization options. The body color palette now includes seven shades, of which three are new — Khaki Gray, Voltaic Blue and Polar White.

The contrast roof, previously painted only black, can now be white. The number of Color Packs has been expanded to four with two new textures, Anodised Orange and Anodised Dark Blue.

In addition, several varieties of wheel disks of 16th and 17th diameter have been prepared for this. As a result, the total number of personalization schemes reaches 70.

The dimensions of the SUV have hardly changed. Only the body length has increased — by a modest 6 mm (up to 4160 mm). The other dimensions are the same: width — 1760 mm, height — 1640 mm, wheelbase — 2600 mm.

Interior new items

The list of improvements in the cabin opens with an enlarged display of the standard Connect Nav media center — now its diagonal is not seven, but nine inches.

Available functions include smartphone screen mirroring (Android Auto / Apple CarPlay available) and wireless charging of gadgets.

Another innovation is the Citroen Advanced Comfort seats with dense foam padding and reinforced support.

They not only provide a comfortable seating position, but also create a pleasant visual impression thanks to the special decorative stitching, first used on the Citroen C4 models.

Also, the restyled C3 Aircross has got new trim options. The buyer will be able to choose between the following schemes:

Standard — made in gray tones;

Urban Blue — blue colors predominate;

Metropolitan Graphite — combined upholstery made of fabrics with textured patterns (main shade gray);

Hype Gray — uses a combination of gray-green leather and black fabric.

As a result of the update, a well-thought-out central box appeared between the front seats in the crossover interior. It has a large, comfortable compartment with a sliding shutter, accessible to both front and rear passengers.

After modernization, the Citroen C3 Aircross remains as practical and versatile as it was before. The spacious second-row seats fold down in parts and slide in the longitudinal direction by 150 mm, providing a change in boot volume in the range of 410-520 liters.

With the rear seat backs folded down, the cargo space increases to 1,289 liters. Thanks to the front passenger’s folding seat, objects up to 2.4 meters long can fit into the cabin.
