Citroën C-Aircross Concept for Geneva


As so often with Citroën's new C-Aircross Concept a rather confusing affair. Why? Because he is quite similar to the recently launched small car C3 (only much higher, of course), but on the other hand, it looks as crazy as if it were shorthanded by Mars. In the case of Citroën, this is expressly good. We want the French to build more of the "slightly different", slightly crazy boxes. So let's hope that the French are serious about their "outlook on future compact SUVs of the brand". We have heard more often in the past.

900 new parts
now is what Citroën since the Geneva Motor Show 2017 (March 9 to 19) brings, in principle, nothing special. A 4.15 meter long City SUV with front wheel drive level. Sounds strong after jacked C3, surely never goes into the terrain, but sells safely as cut bread. Especially when it looks so cool, like this funky thing here. But, of course, the C-Aircross carry a whole arsenal of fair-climbim around, which should never happen in series. The counter-opening doors for example, the wrong taillights or the great rims. There is also a glorious one-spoke steering wheel (in a venerable Citroën tradition) and various sound zones where the passengers can listen or communicate their own music (via microphones and speakers in the headrests). In addition: the possibility to stream and share music, movies and co., As well as various cameras, touch screens, tablets and a head-up display instead of conventional instruments.

New TFT instrument display
Up to arg futuristic-looking seats, the C-Aircross cockpit but not so far from a C4-Cactus Interior away. The large glass roof, the central 12-inch touch screen or the possibility to load two smartphones inductively - something you can bring in serial production. We hope so. Just like the casual side protection pads and the wheel housings in camoflage optics. So Citroën, from this side you have the permission to go really steep. A C-Aircross compact SUV, which even halfway so looked like this study, a welcome change from colorful Audi Q2, Opel Cross Country X and Co. would.
