Citroen C3 Aircross
Citroen has been struggling in the Australian car market. David Brown looks at their new Aircross.
Can Citroen turn the tide with its new C3 Aircross, a small SUV shaped vehicle that only comes in two-wheel drive. And there’s just one model but with good features.
It has a little 3 cylinder engine with a modest 81kW and 205Nm of torque but being turboed fortunately it gets its pulling power at low revs.
A six speed auto is also helpful.
It has Automatic emergency braking but there is a catch. It only works up to 30km/hr so no five-star crash rating.
And Citroen’s tendance for distinctive, some say eccentric looking cars?
Most notably The Aircross has a strong if somewhat blunt nose
It cost $33,000 plus on roads.
