Rugged looks for South American Citroen C3 Picasso spin-off
6 April 2010

This is the Citroen AirCross, which is based on the Citroen C3 Picasso.

The car is being built in Brazil, and will be sold in South American markets from this summer.

The car is essentially a jacked up version of the C3 Picasso with off-road styling. Changes include a new front grille, rugged plastic mouldings on the sills, a rear-mounted spare tyre and graphics.

Our Verdict

Citroën C3 Picasso

The Citroën C3 Picasso is a cut above the MPV norm, combining style, space and quality, but it majors on comfort not fun

I actually love it! They should sell it in the UK, although it'd probably only be as successful as the unloved C3 XTR - which wasn't very successful...

The Rover Streetwise is back!

That Citroen looks even worse than the Mini Countryman.

It's a little odd looking round the back, do cars like this really work? The Rover Streetwise as mentioned above was a last ditch attempt to get a new demographic to buy into the Rover 25. Cars like this are designed as small cars originally then try to be something different but invariably end up ruining the looks of the original.......

Such cars do seem to have a good demand there, I guess. Even FIAT makes/made the Palio Adventure in BRazil and India. That was a pretty nice looking estate in comparison to this one though.

We all know it doesn't, but it looks awfully 'off-road', doesn't it?
