French-brand Citroën has revealed their facelifted C3 Aircross, with notable styling and comfort updates. The frond-end has received a number of revisions, with sleeker headlamps and a revised front bumper and grille. Citroën notes that the LED fog lamps now project more light into the road, providing more clarity and road safety. The new grille has a geometric design with a grey skid-plate "with coloured inserts that enhance the model's robustness." LED daytime running lights are also standard.
Along with upgraded looks comes the upgraded customisation now available for would-be owners. Four all-new body colours can be teamed with 2 roof colours (black or white) and 3 different colour packs. "The Colour Packs comprise original and sharply designed coloured inserts on the extreme edges of the front skid plate, on the door-mirror shells and on the quarter-light. The latter is home to a new side signature in which the distinctive coloured louvres are supplemented by new cube-shaped graphics according to the Colour Pack selected, with a mirror-chrome louvre effect for the Shiny Black and Silver Colour Packs, a white cube effect for the Polar White Colour Pack," says Citroën. New alloy wheels, available either as a diamond cut or in fashionable black, also make the cut.
Inside the spacious cabin, the C3 Aircross now receives a seven-inch touchscreen, increased interior storage — there's a new centre console — connectivity tech and increased driving aids. Naturally, the updated touchscreen infotainment system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and Citroën Connect Nav. An increased emphasis has been put on safety, with a new head-up display relaying information to the driver's line of vision. Aside from that, emergency brake assist, Driver Attention Alert and automatic headlamps are also included. Tech often seen on more expensive cars - such as speed sign recognition - is now also found in the C3 Aircross. Park assist and keyless entry are also standard.
81 kW are provided by the three-cylinder, 1.2-litre turbopetrol engine. Both models employ this powertrain, and in both instances, the engine is mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic gearbox.
