  • Only C-Segment SUV With 3-Row Seating

    The Citroen C3 Aircross is currently the only SUV in its segment to offer 3-row seating. It comes with third row seats that can be removed when not in use to liberate a segment-best boot space of 511 litres.

  • Reasonable Sub-Rs. 10 Lakh Starting Price

    Citroen surprised the Indian audience with a sub-10 lakh starting price, making it the only C-SUV to come under 10 lakh ex-showroom. Citroen are yet to share the full price list of the C3 Aircross SUV.

  • Healthy Ground Clearance Of 200mm

    The Citroen C3 Aircross offers a 200mm ground clearance, which is considerably better than the best-sellers like the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos, which offer 190mm ground clearance.

  • Great Ride Comfort

    Ride quality has been a hallmark of Citroen offerings globally and that stands true with the C3 Aircross as well. It comes with Citroen’s famed advanced comfort active suspension, which offers a cushy ride without taking a toll on the dynamics.

  • Punchy Turbo Petrol With Lower Tax Impositions

    The 1.2L turbo petrol engine of the C3 Aircross offers better performance compared to the small-capacity 1.0L turbocharged and 1.5L normal petrol engines offered with the rivals. Additionally, it also attracts 7% lower GST compared to some of its rivals.

  • Several Missing Features Compared To Rivals

    Since the C3 Aircross falls in the C-SUV segment, we expect it to offer a couple of features that we expect from a C-segment SUV. These features include automatic climate control, LED headlights, cruise control, electric sunroof, wireless phone charger and front ventilated seats.

  • Limited Legroom And Features In 5-Seater Variants

    Since the 5-seater C3 Aircross does away with 3rd-row seats, the mounting points for the seats in the 5-seater variants of the C3 Aircross are different, resulting in less legroom. Furthermore, its 5-seater variants lack features like sliding 2nd-row seats, rear seat armrest and rear AC vents, which the 7-seater C3 Aircross offers.

  • No Automatic Transmission Available Yet

    Citroen offer the C3 Aircross with a sole 1.2L turbo petrol engine paired with a 6-speed manual transmission only. The SUV sold in the Indonesian market, on the other hand, comes with a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission. We expect Citroen to offer the same transmission option in India soon.

  • Limited Sales And Service Network

    Citroen are expanding in the country but their network isn’t strong enough to cater to the tier-2 and tier-3 markets. Additionally, Citroen offerings are yet to prove their reliability in varied and harsh Indian driving conditions.
