The new Citroen C4 Aircross has received its first public airing at the Geneva motor show today, ahead of the compact SUV’s market launch in the autumn.
The new C4 Aircross takes some styling cues from Citroën’s Hypnos concept car first seen in 2008, particularly the design of the 18-inch wheels and rear lights.
The five-seat C4 Aircross is 4340mm long, 1800mm wide and 1630mm high. Key features include a panoramic glass sunroof that is illuminated by integrated LED lights at night and a boot volume of 442 litres.
The range will feature 2WD-only 1.6i, 114bhp petrol engine, plus 1.6, 110bhp and 1.8, 150bhp diesels. The diesels – the French marque’s 110Hdi and 150Hdi units – will be mated to a manual six-speed gearbox, while the petrol car will get a five-speed ‘box. A two-litre petrol variant will not be made available in European markets. The 110Hdi will be offered as a two or four-wheel drive car.
The Citroën C4 Aircross boasts vertically integrated LEDs at the front, indicator repeaters in the door mirrors, light guides in the rear light clusters and an integrated rearview reversing camera. Equipment includes GPS navigation with touch-screen, reversing camera and USB or Bluetooth connection for portable audio players.
On display at Geneva is an exclusive version of C4 Aircross with all-new Vapor Gray frosted-texture paint. The roof bars, door mirrors and door handles are all chrome-finished to match the new colour, while the two-tone diamond-effect wheel rims sport the same Vapor Gray tone as the interior. Citroen UK has yet to decide which versions will be offered for sale here.
