      Citroen C3 Aircross Quick Review

      Exterior design

      The C3 Aircross looks refreshingly different from other midsize SUVs, and if there’s anything familiar about it, it’s because it looks similar to the C3 hatchback, with which it shares the same C-Cubed platform. The front in particular is very similar, and, that’s not a bad thing because the C3 itself is quite distinctive to look at. The side profile showcases a superbly balanced design, and the striking C-shaped tail-lights, prominent roof spoiler and chunky rear skid plate make the C3 Aircross attractive from the rear as well.

      Interior design

      The two-tone dashboard is similar to the smaller C3’s, which means it’s stylish, nicely sculpted and full of interesting design details. The steering wheel is from the C3 and gets an additional set of buttons to play around with the different modes on the displays that come with the new, customisable digital instrument cluster. However, evident measures of cost cutting abounds the cabin with things like manual air conditioning, inconveniently positioned rear power window buttons or even the tacky looking roof mounted air-con vents in the three-row version.

      Seating comfort

      The driver’s seat is a touch slim, but nevertheless, it's quite comfortable with the right amount of cushioning. The rear seat is also a comfortable space to be, with generous headroom and legroom even for tall passengers. Though the under-thigh support is a tad short, the overall cushioning and high seat position lets you spend long journeys in comfort. In the 7-seater version, the third row can be easily accessed, but are suited mostly for children, although adults can squeeze in there for short drives.


      The 10.2-inch infotainment system is the same as the C3’s, which means it’s slick to operate, has a good touch response, clear graphics and also gets wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You also get a total of five Type B USB charging ports (including two for the third row of seats), a rear view camera with reverse parking sensors and just two airbags as standard, which is a stingy features list by class standards. The C3 Aircross doesn’t come with one of the most desired features in an SUV today – a sunroof.

      Engine and performance

      Citroen’s turbo-petrol is the best 1.2 litre engine in the market today, and here is the C3 Aircross produces 110hp and 190Nm. This engine feels incredibly smooth and refined throughout its rev range. The C3 Aircross steps off the line smartly and part throttle response is really good. It’s only when you press your right foot down hard that you encounter turbo lag and need to downshift. Flat out acceleration is strong and the zingy engine has a willingness to rev. The short-throw 6-speed manual is also brilliant with smooth, precise shifts that makes gear changing a joy, but the clutch is a bit snappy and needs careful modulation.

      Ride and handling

      The softly sprung C3 Aircross sets a new benchmark for ride quality in the midsize SUV segment. Low-speed ride is phenomenal, and the suspension soaks up rough edges, potholes and ruts like a velvet sponge. At high speeds, the Aircross tends to bob up and down a bit, especially at the rear. Straight line stability is fantastic thanks to the long wheelbase, and the steering is again one of the best around – it’s light at low speeds and weighs up perfectly as you go faster. In fact, at speed, the C3 Aircross is a joy to drive with the confidence it inspires.

      Price and Verdict

      The standout design and innovative three-row configuration makes it unique in a clutter of midsize SUVs that all follow a similar template. The 1.2 turbo-petrol is a jewel of an engine, and when it comes to ride comfort, the C3 Aircross is in a different league as well. Sadly, great product engineering can be undone by poor product planning, and whoever specced the C3 Aircross has little understanding of the Indian consumer. At Rs 9.99 lakh – Rs 12.10 lakh, the C3 Aircross is a no-frills car with a no-frills price tag.
