The C3 Aircross is the third product from the French car manufacturer under their C-Cubed platform. The C3 Aircross uses the same platform as the C3 hatchback and the eC3 electric hatchback. The C5 Aircross is currently the most expensive SUV on offer from the manufacturer. The C3 Aircross shares the same front design as other Citroën models.

We see the Chevron logo at the front, which extends to the front grille. There are twin LED DRLs, halogen headlamps, a faux skid plate, fog lamps, and more. It is not the most premium-looking SUV in the segment (both in terms of looks and features). Citroën offers a variety of customization options to its customers from the factory. It is available with both 2-row and 3-row seating configurations.

The SUV is powered by a 1.2-liter, three-cylinder, turbocharged engine that generates 110 PS and 190 Nm of peak torque. The SUV was initially offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox only. Earlier this year, Citroën filled in a major void by introducing a 6-speed automatic transmission. The automatic variant generates 15 Nm more torque than the manual version.
