Citroen reveals quirky C-Aircross concept

Citroen has pulled the covers off a concept SUV that is based on its new C3 supermini, ahead of its Geneva motor show debut.

It’s called the C-Aircross, and features guards on the lower bodywork, while the front end is heavily influenced by the quirky C4 Cactus that was launched in 2014.

Access to the concept is granted by suicide doors, which open away from each other for a larger door aperture. The cabin, meanwhile, features a large 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system. A single-spoke steering wheel is a nod to classic Citroen models, while the head-up display sits directly in front of the driver.

It is thought the C-Aircross will be front-wheel drive, although the French manufacturer has said it features its Grip Control system for some off-road capability.

This system is built into the electronic stability program (ESP), and provides drivers with five different drive modes – such as ‘Sand’ and ‘Snow’ modes – for tackling a range of terrains.

The C-Aircross has also been fitted with side camera, as opposed to rear view mirrors, while a central rear camera allows the driver to see what is behind the vehicle.

The funky concept features 3D sat nav, climate control, as well as the Connected Cam system from the C3, which allows drivers to share photos and videos to social media.
