Have a look at Citroën’s first images of their all-new C3 Aircross, which enters the B- 
SUV segment. It will arrive here in mid-2024 and will come with new dimensions, 
more powerful, assertive styling, added space, with the capacity to accommodate up 
to 7 people, electrified offerings from hybrid to 100% electric, comfort and 
connectivity a given, more information about the all-new C3 Aircross will be shared 
closer to launch. 
It shares the same design identity as the new C3 announced in October of last year. With 
plenty of space and onboard comfort, Citroen plans to shake up the market with very 
competitive pricing positioning - both models are based on the same Smart Car 
a platform allowing powertrain flexibility and cost efficiency. 
The all-new C3 Aircross adopts a more assertive character and more interior space with 
up to 7 seats, and an expanded range of powertrain options all while boasting the same 
level of onboard comfort. 
This 2024 C3 Aircross incorporates Citroën's new design language, heavily inspired 
by the Oli concept and brought to life by the new C3. All-new C3 Aircross undergoes a 
a radical change in attitude, transitioning from a model emphasizing roundness and 
kindness to one that, without being aggressive, exudes a more angular, muscular, 
and assertive style. 
C3 Aircross embraces its SUV typology with a high and horizontal hood, displaying 
the new Citroën logo and adopting the characteristic lighting signature in 3 luminous 
segments. Its style also highlights quality and attention to detail by incorporating the 
chevron pattern on certain elements. Citroën will offer a two-tone roof on the model, 
enlivening C3 Aircross with punctual colour accents such as the additional colour 
clips present on the bumper and quarter panel, which the owner can change as they 
All-new C3 Aircross now reaches a length of 4.39 meters, providing greater interior 
space. The quarter panel provides a dynamic and vertical rear end, offering the 
ability to comfortably accommodate up to 7 people onboard with two foldable seats 
in the third row. C3 Aircross is full of tricks to make family life easier by offering 
great flexibility making it a truly easy-to-live-with SUV. 
This new B SUV shares the Smart Car platform with the C3 hatchback, introduced by 
Citroën and designed from the start to optimally accommodate an electric offering. 
Thus, C3 Aircross will offer for the first time alongside a traditional combustion 
engine a hybrid option that facilitates access to electrification. An affordable all- 
electric powertrain produced in Europe will also be available. 
The SUV silhouette of the C3 Aircross promises a raised ground clearance, more 
reassuring in driving, facilitating onboard access and favouring a high-driving 
position that allows for better visibility. 

These elements contribute to the feeling of well-being on board, another signature of 
the C3 Aircross. Like the C3, the new C3 Aircross will highlight comfort and will have 
all the equipment and technologies expected by customers in this market.
