NEW CITROËN C3 AIRCROSS COMPACT SUV REVEALED: CITROËN REINFORCES ITS INTERNATIONAL SUV OFFENSIVE

Following the premiere of New C5 Aircross in April, Citroën is stepping up its international SUV offensive with the reveal of New C3 Aircross, a compact SUV with a fresh and assertive personality. New C3 Aircross is a new-generation SUV with unrivalled space for a vehicle of its type, a modular design and a large opening panoramic glass sunroof. Representing an important milestone for the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, New C3 Aircross offers a sense of well-being on-board. Equally at ease in the city or out on the open road, this new Citroën SUV’s adventurous abilities have been enhanced with Grip Control®, Hill Descent Assist, 12 driver assistance systems (incl. Colour Head-up Display) and four connectivity technologies (incl. Wireless Smartphone Charging). New C3 Aircross will officially go ‘on sale’ in the UK on Wednesday 1 November 2017. Following the world premiere of New C5 Aircross – the brand’s new C-segment SUV – at the Shanghai Motor Show in April, Citroën is stepping up its international SUV offensive. Today the Citroën brand reveals the New C3 Aircross compact SUV, which will soon launch into the rapidly growing B SUV-segment in the UK, Europe and across markets worldwide. Both of Citroën's new-generation SUVs are people-minded and inspired by customers. With the protective character of their exterior styling, New C5 Aircross and New C3 Aircross are equally appealing to SUV buyers, each with their own unique and energetic personalities. Both models stand out in their respective segments and represent new benchmarks in terms of ease of use and on-board comfort. New C5 Aircross and New C3 Aircross illustrate the brand's expertise in design, the creation of space and well-being. Inspired by the C-Aircross Concept, which was presented at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, New C3 Aircross brings a breath of fresh air to the compact SUV segment. Outside, it stands out with its unique body styling and unprecedented personalisation choices. Inside, innovation is demonstrated through its levels of comfort as part of the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme. This means plenty of space on-board, a modular design, and a bright and airy passenger compartment. New C3 Aircross is a contemporary vehicle that is connected and equipped with a range of technologies that make life easier in the city and out on the open road. In short, Citroën's new SUV invites fans of style, well-being and adventure to live a whole new automotive experience. The New Citroën C3 Aircross compact SUV stands apart as:  AN SUV WITH AN ASSERTIVE & CUSTOMISABLE PERSONALITYNew Citroën C3 Aircross is a compact 4.15m long SUV distinguished by its powerful, original and fresh attitude. It boasts unique body styling that is fully representative of the current Citroën range, along with all the attributes of a robust and protective SUV – raised ground clearance, an elevated driving position, front and rear skid plates, large wheels and wheel arch extensions. The body styling is underscored by strong graphic features, such as the touches of colour on the roof bars and the ‘Venetian Blind’ rear quarter-lights. New C3 Aircross offers an unprecedented number of personalisation options with up to 90 exterior colour combinations, including four roof colours for two-tone models and four ‘Colour Packs’, plus five highly distinctive interior design schemes. The cabin, with its horizontal design approach, clearly conveys spaciousness and protection. New C3 Aircross is also very much an SUV in terms of driving pleasure and handling. Nimble in the city, owing to its compact body, and ready for adventure with its Grip Control® and Hill Descent Assist system, New C3 Aircross is available with a wide selection of economical and efficient petrol and diesel engines.  THE MOST SPACIOUS & MODULAR SUV IN THE COMPACT SEGMENTThe Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, which focuses on mental and physical well-being, is seen through the ingenious architecture of New C3 Aircross. This is a compact SUV that makes everyday life easier, with absolutely no compromises in terms of comfort or functionality. The cabin is home to broad and comfortable seats, and offers class-leading space (headroom and legroom), unrivalled modularity (split/sliding rear seats), a fold-flat front passenger seat (for a load length of up to 2.40m) and exceptional boot volume (410-litres, which can increase to 520-litres). Well-being is also assured by a cabin that is flooded with natural light, thanks to the large opening panoramic glass sunroof. New C3 Aircross features ingenious storage spaces, including a wireless smartphone charging area in the central console. It is also available with a complete range of driver assistance systems, such as the Colour Head-up Display, Active Safety Brake, Intelligent Beam Headlights and Speed Sign Recognition and Recommendation, as well as useful technologies including Park Assist and Citroën Connect Nav. "After the New C5 Aircross, a C-segment SUV presented in Shanghai, Citroën is accelerating its international SUV offensive with a second model. Unveiled today in Paris, the New Citroën C3 Aircross compact SUV will be launched in Europe between now and the end of the year. Bringing together all of Citroën's expertise in cabin space, modular design and comfort, this people-minded SUV stands out in the B SUV-segment with its unique body styling. It has a different mind-set, a source of protection and adventure, consistent with the expectations of customers today." Linda Jackson, Citroën CEO NEW CITROËN C3 AIRCROSS IN DETAIL 01 – AN SUV WITH AN ASSERTIVE & CUSTOMISABLE PERSONALITY UNIQUE SUV BODY STYLING New Citroën C3 Aircross was created with the inspiration of the design teams, led by Alexandre Malval, Citroën’s Design Director. New C3 Aircross appeals with its unique body styling, and its fresh and protective appearance. Its compact and high-set dimensions (4.15m long, 1.76m wide and 1.64m tall) are well proportioned and showcase the car's flowing and dynamic lines. Citroën's attractive new compact SUV dominates the road. The design of New C3 Aircross is unique to the segment with a muscular bonnet that is both short and raised. The overall design is free from aggression although there is a sense of robustness, which is underscored by the front and rear light signatures. Standing firm on its large diameter wheels, New C3 Aircross has a ground clearance 20mm higher than New C3, whose platform it shares. The new model's wheel arch extensions and protective skid plates also contribute to the dynamic and protective SUV styling. These visual features reinforce the car's adventurous spirit and personality. At the front, New C3 Aircross features Citroën's two-tier light signature. The lights at the top are the LED daytime running lights, which link to the chevrons via a double chrome strip to enhance the perceived width of the car. The lower units are for the headlights and come complete with coloured surrounds. There is also space to house the fog lamps. A large air intake in the centre strikes a powerful note. Lower down, a protective skid plate underscores the SUV nature of New C3 Aircross. At the rear, the design emphasises the car’s width and muscular character. The 3D-effect rear lights spell out the family connection with New C3 and the C-Aircross Concept. The sophisticated light units are complemented by ‘Gloss Black’ inserts in the tailgate, featuring the two-tone C3 Aircross badge and Gloss Black chevrons. The imposing rear bumper and protective skid plate echo the front end, and once again affirms the car's robustness and SUV spirit.  A true SUV, New C3 Aircross features innovative components such as the stylish quarter-lights as a unique design signature. Previewed on the C-Aircross Concept, the rear quarter-lights – made from polycarbonate and layered with a coloured film – create a strong graphic contrast on the C-pillar. With their ‘Venetian Blind’ effect, they add a unique character trait and also serve to conceal the inside of the car, but without keeping the light out or reducing visibility.  A CUSTOMISABLE SUV: WITH UP TO 90 COLOUR COMBINATIONS* Another distinctive feature of New Citroën C3 Aircross is the way it can be adapted to match the personality of individual customers. As with New C3, Citroën’s designers have given New C3 Aircross a bold and modern spirit that is highly customisable. Each owner can express themselves – from the most conventional to the most striking finish. Customers can choose the colour of the roof and then combine it with a different body colour and a ‘Colour Pack’. Energising the styling of the compact SUV, the touches in the Colour Pack are applied to the roof bars, rear quarter-lights, door mirrors, front headlamp surrounds and wheel centre caps. New C3 Aircross is available with up to 90 colour combinations reflecting each buyer’s personality and tastes: Eight body colours (Natural White, Ink Black, Misty Grey, Cosmic Silver, Passion Red, Breathing Blue, Soft Sand, Spicy Orange)Four roof colours for a two-tone effect (Ink Black, Natural White, Spicy Orange or Soft Sand)*Four Colour Packs (Orange, Grey, White, Black) * Depending on the country Customers also get to choose between stylish 16-inch wheel trims and 16-inch or 17-inch alloy wheels. Personalisation applies equally inside New C3 Aircross, with five interior design choices.Each design is inspired by the worlds of furniture and fashion. The emphasis is on pure lines, protective forms, a meticulous finish and a variety of textures on the dashboard. The door panel designs, touches of colour on the steering wheel and air vents, and the seat upholsteries create a lounge-like atmosphere. Regardless of the chosen finish, be it neutral, warm, dynamic or high-end, New C3 Aircross brings an extensive range of items for personal expression: The standard design scheme is pure and uncluttered with a textured grey dashboard, combined with Mica Grey cloth seat upholstery and enhanced by white air vent surroundsThe Metropolitan Grey design scheme emphasises cabin space. The focus here is on clarity and well-being with bright colours and warm fabrics that also feature on the dashboard. The air vents have orange surroundsThe Urban Red design scheme expresses vitality and boosts the technological character of the SUV. It comprises a series of contrasting elements between dark colours and bright stitching on the Dark Grey Quartz cloth seats. The dashboard is covered in a leather-like material to complete the lookThe Hype Mistral design scheme conveys a premium feel. It combines black leather and patterned cloth, with a leather-look to the dashboard. The air vents feature satin chrome surroundsThe Hype Colorado design scheme also expresses a premium approach, enhanced by soft-touch materials and a special tan-coloured finish on the half-leather seats, two-tone leather steering wheel and dashboard.AN SUV DRIVING EXPERIENCE New C3 Aircross is also very much an SUV in terms of driving pleasure and handling. Dominating the road with its raised ground clearance and large wheels, New C3 Aircross is at ease on most surfaces thanks to the Grip Control® and Hill Descent Assist system. Able to venture out of the city and leave the beaten track by adjusting grip, New C3 Aircross is ideal both for fans of urban adventure and shopping excursions, and fans of sport, leisure and outdoor activities. Equipped with the Grip Control® system for improved traction and special 16-inch and 17-inch mud-and-snow tyres, New C3 Aircross can adapt to all types of terrain, whatever the conditions. Safety is enhanced in all circumstances through five driving modes. Drivers can leave the Grip Control® system on automatic via the Standard mode or select between Sand, All-Road, Snow or ESP OFF modes.  Combined with Grip Control®, the Hill Descent Assist function maintains the car at a reduced speed even on the steepest inclines. This technology keeps New C3 Aircross on the right trajectory while limiting the risk of slippage as the car descends slopes. The new function helps the driver to keep perfect control of New C3 Aircross in complete safety. The system can function at very low speeds – as low as 2mph (3km/h) – for added control and safety during what can otherwise be a very stressful manoeuvre. The technology and adventurous nature of the new model are underlined by a broad range of economical and efficient latest-generation engines. New C3 Aircross is available with International Engine of the Year award-winning PureTech 3-cylinder petrol engines, equipped with the latest technologies for heightened responsiveness, controlled fuel consumption and emissions. The BlueHDi range of diesel engines also brings driving pleasure and enhanced economy. Petrol: The New C3 Aircross compact SUV is available in its highest performance form with the PureTech 130 S&S with a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Designed as a true space for living, the interior of New C3 Aircross is warm and welcoming. With its ingenious architecture, it combines compact design outside with outstanding roominess inside. An easy car to live with, day in and day out, New C3 Aircross scores high on user-friendliness through its intuitive technologies. CLASS-LEADING SPACE New C3 Aircross is fully focused on comfort, with the perception of space and a sense of well-being playing a key role. These sensations – felt instantly on entering the vehicle – are created by the horizontal design of the dashboard, and by the welcoming and comfortable seats. Put simply, New Citroën C3 Aircross innovates through its design, providing exceptional cabin space, modularity and boot volume. Spaciousness: The architecture of New C3 Aircross delivers the most spacious interior in the segment and outstanding comfort, with five seats and both generous leg and headroom. Each passenger is fully at ease in the front and rear alike.

The ultra-modular front passenger seat can be folded down to transport long objects.

As a further ingenious touch, the dual height boot floor provides the option of a flat floor with the rear seatbacks folded down.OPENING PANORAMIC GLASS SUNROOF New C3 Aircross places a premium on the amount of light in the cabin. The new model features a large glazed surface area offering drivers 360° of visibility and impressive amounts of light inside the car. This sensation is enhanced by the relaxing effect of the rear quarter-lights with their ‘Venetian Blind’ design creating a mixture of light and shadow. New C3 Aircross also offers passengers an impressive view of the sky with its opening panoramic glass sunroof. Unique in the B SUV-segment, this feature comes complete with a sequential electric control, has an interior glazed area of nearly 1m long, and features a sun blind and LED lighting. The amount of light in the cabin can also be adjusted using the sun blinds in the rear doors.  INGENIOUS STORAGE SPACES Another essential component to promote comfort when travelling is storage space.

The central console has been designed to store a smartphone with a special dock and wireless charging.The ‘penholder’ space on the passenger side of the dashboard can accommodate slim objects such as keys, pens and coins. The front door pockets even have enough room for 1.5-litre bottles of water. Rear passengers benefit from extra storage spaces too.

NEW CITROËN C3 & GRAND C4 PICASSO TAKE DOUBLE WIN IN CONTRACT HIRE AND LEASING.COM AWARDS 2016/2017

New Citroën C3 has scooped the award for Supermini of the Year, and Grand C4 Picasso has eclipsed its rivals to take the MPV of the Year prize in the Contract Hire and Leasing.com Awards 2016/17. The awards judges highlighted New C3’s “reassuring” running costs and “engaging handling” and described Grand C4 Picasso as simply “one of best MPVs available today”. New Citroën C3 has fought off some exceptionally strong B-segment competition to win Best Supermini in the Contract Hire and Leasing.com Car of the Year Awards 2016/2017, with New Citroën Grand C4 Picasso also sweeping the competition aside to take the Best MPV title.  The Contract Hire and Leasing.com judges said; “Reassuring running costs, engaging handling, distinctive looks, and a wide variety of personalisation options make the C3 a fun lease.” The judges continued; “With the same styling cues of the C4 Cactus, it gets a much more inspired look than its forebear. But those individualistic air bumps aren’t the only reason it wins our supermini of the year award. The C3’s update extends well beyond the bodywork, thanks to an interior that features possibly the comfiest seats ever to grace a small car. Its four doors and 300-litre boot means practicality is just as high on the priority list as comfort. too.” Citroën’s fun New C3 includes the world’s first fully integrated dashcam, ConnectedCAM Citroën™. The forward facing camera, positioned just behind the rear-view mirror, adds both fun and function to the car. The driver can take pictures in complete safety, and record or share video via their social media channels. The camera can also record vital “before and after” footage in the event of an accident. In addition, New C3’s range of efficient PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel engines all feature low emissions and low fuel consumption, contributing to low overall running costs. The Grand C4 Picasso is no stranger to awards ceremonies, its strengths as a stylish and spacious MPV having earned it a long list of awards since it was originally launched in 2014. The Contract Hire and Leasing.com judges praised New Grand C4 Picasso, describing Citroën’s family seven-seater as; “One of the best MPVs available today, the Grand C4 Picasso majors on style.” They went on to say; “In the British lexicon, the name Picasso is now probably more associated with MPVs than it is with surrealist paintings, and the updated Grand C4 Picasso ensures this trend continues. This behemoth seven-seater gets a flexibility that makes it the perfect family load-lugger. Huge infotainment and driver info screens now dominate the dashboard, which along with the spaceship looks give the Grand Picasso a futuristic flavour. Some people carriers can be rather drab, but not this one. The Grand Picasso doesn’t try and apologise for what it is, and that’s why it’s a winner.” Available since 3 January 2017, New Citroën C3 has already started racking up awards, having been honoured with the “Best Urbanite” title in BBC TopGear Magazine’s ‘Best Cars in the World’ issue. The Best MPV award from Contract Hire and Leasing.com is the second award that New Grand C4 Picasso has earned already for 2017, following the Best Seven-Seater prize in the Carbuyer Best Car Awards.
