With its original design and strong identity, this new concept embodies Citroën's capacity to be different, whatever the segment. The unique design adds to the dynamic attitude of the SUV, thanks to the fluidity of its aerodynamic lines and a fresh new colour scheme. On-board, C-Aircross Concept reflects a new step for the Citroën Advanced Comfort programme, with a light and airy cabin, and technologies that makes life easier. With its World Premiere set for the Geneva Motor Show on 7 March, the C-Aircross Concept heralds Citroën's global offensive in the SUV sector.

Citroën has revealed a daring new concept car with a strong and colourful identity - C-Aircross Concept. This interpretation of a compact SUV marks a new stage for Citroën in the deployment of its product strategy. With the C-Aircross Concept's internationally-oriented body style, the Citroën brand confirms its offensive in the SUV market - an offensive that began with the reveal of the Aircross Concept in 2015.

The Citroën C-Aircross Concept's unique identity is inspired by New C3, although clearly adapted for a new sector of the market:
  • DESIGN- The C-Aircross Concept marks its difference in the world of the SUV thanks to its strong, original and fresh design. Assertive in its appearance, the C-Aircross Concept boasts a unique balance between protection and the fluidity of its lines. The exterior immediately gives an impression of space on-board. Inside, the use of colour and specially chosen materials creates a modern and relaxed atmosphere, with an overall impression of minimalist style.
  • COMFORT- A modern SUV, the front doors - and the rear-hinged doors at the back - open to reveal a spacious cabin, ensuring complete peace-of-mind for all occupants. The concept offers wide, quilt-effect seats and plenty of light from its large windows and panoramic sunroof. Thanks to the Citroën Advanced Comfort programme, the concept's technologies serve to enhance ease-of-use. For example: a colour head-up display, a single spoke steering wheel with intuitive controls, rear facing cameras and wireless induction charging for smartphones.
"The C-Aircross Concept demonstrates Citroën's pursuit of its international product offensive. Based on the state-of-mind of New C3, it illustrates a different vision for the compact SUV segment, full of confidence and boldness. This concept also embodies the ambitions of the Citroën Advanced Comfort programme, making its interior space a source of well-being." Linda Jackson, Citroën CEO

Staunchly optimistic, the C-Aircross Concept boasts an assertive and singular personality in the world of the SUV. Its modern design offers the feeling of robustness and energy, along with an impressive, yet non-aggressive presence. The design is visually enhanced by the protective trim found on the lower parts of the body. The Citroën Style team has cleverly combined seamless, flowing lines with the features of an SUV, on a compact body (length: 4.15m, width: 1.74m, height: 1.63m).

Based on the style markers featured on New C3, the C-Aircross Concept contrasts smooth surfaces with bold graphic elements that are brought to life with splashes of colour. The blue body paint contrasts elegantly with Fluorescent Coral highlights, which bring out the fun side of this concept. The brightly coloured personalisation elements can be seen around the headlights, on the wheels, on the side guards and on the roof bars - which also incorporate LED lighting at the front.

In terms of posture, the C-Aircross Concept stands out with its short and raised bonnet, and its sturdy front end. Its assertive, reassuring lines and moulded panels further accentuate its strong identity. Always ready for adventure, the C-Aircross Concept is equipped with front and rear protection shields with a glossy black finish, and wheel arch extensions with a 'stealthy' camouflage design. To further emphasise its go-anywhere nature, this new concept is equipped with large wheels featuring a unique design that suggest a raised driving position and off-road capabilities.

In line with the exterior styling codes of New C3, C-Aircross Concept inherits the brand's split level light signature at the front. The daytime running lights are integrated into the grille and are separated from the main lights, which sit below them. The rear is just as assertive in terms of style and comes complete with new 3D lights, each with three floating sections. These rear clusters share their graphic design with the decoration on the floating and backlit rear quarter windows. A key design characteristic, the rear quarter windows were conceived as aerodynamic features of the car and conceal the interior of the vehicle without preventing light from entering the cabin.

Aerodynamic efficiency is also enhanced with air inlets located in the front bumper, air outlets built into the side door guards, and a diffuser at the rear. Each surface has been designed to take air flow into account.

The C-Aircross Concept features 'opposing opening doors', including rear-hinged doors at the back for better accessibility, a design reminiscent of the Aircross and CXperience concepts.

Citroën's designers opted for an elevated one-piece dashboard, and for suspended and raised seats that complement the interior architecture - which is primarily horizontal in design for an impression of fluidity, modernity and space.

In addition to the single spoke steering wheel (a nod to the brand's heritage), the fabric-covered dashboard features a tinted 'head-up display', which is directly in the driver's field of vision. Information is displayed in colours that perfectly match the interior colour scheme of the vehicle. In the middle of the dashboard, a 12-inch touchscreen takes centre stage, displaying driving information and infotainment updates. The lower centre console extends from the front seats right through to the rear, and boasts a number of useful storage spaces.

Entirely designed in a combination of light grey and orange, the floating dashboard features a large storage compartment that stretches right across the car.

The Fluorescent Coral colour that dominates the floor and carpeting creates a welcoming tone-on-tone effect, and there are splashes of colour on the air vents and the seatbelt buckles too. This warm and colourful combination also features on the sofa-style seats, along with thick and soft-to-the touch fabric.
