Citroen has introduced the new C3 Aircross for the European market, after showcasing its exterior in April 2024. The SUV's interior is more feature-rich and has a quite distinct setup than its Indian counterpart. The Euro-spec version, like the Indian-spec model, comes in five and seven-seater configurations, but it is equipped with a head-up display instead of a standard instrument console. The boot capacity for the five-seater model is 460 litres. The SUV features a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In terms of powertrain, the C3 Aircross now also comes in an electric version, with prices starting in France at EUR 27,400, or around Rs 24.55 lakh. Let's look at other specs of the Euro-spec model in detail.

Euro-spec Citroen C3 Aircross: Exterior

The C3 Aircross has a more boxy and upright stance. It is similar to the Euro-spec C3, with notable modifications such as a beefy front bumper with silver highlights and black cladding, unique C-shaped taillights, a curved tailgate, and bigger wheels. Compared to the India-spec Citroen C3 Aircross, which has a length of 4,323mm, the Euro-spec version is longer at 4,390mm.

Boris Reinmoller, C3 Aircross Design Project Manager, said 'We opted for a robust and assertive design, with styling that adds muscle and strength. With over 20 cm of ground clearance, a raised driving position, and subtle plays of light in its design, the all-new C3 Aircross takes the next step and becomes a real SUV.'

The European-spec Citroen C3 Aircross now gets an electric powertrain option for the five-seater configuration. It has a 44 kWh lithium-ion battery and electric motor (111bhp) that allows for a driving range of more than 300 kilometres on a single charge. The top speed stands at 145km/h. A 7 kW charger, according to Citroen, can charge the SUV from 20% to 80% in 4 hours and 10 minutes. The charging time will drop to two hours and fifty minutes using an 11 kW charger.
