Here it is! After several months of speculation and several photo series, Citroën has just announced that the presentation of the second generation of the C3 Aircross will take place on 27th April for India and Latin America.
The new C3 Aircross is expected to be unveiled towards the end of the first half of the year, at the end of April, when we will finally be able to discover all the new features of this second model in the C-Cubed range, which will enrich the brand's range in India and Latin America.
These exclusive images show what the future C3 Aircross will look like and, contrary to previous information, it will not have the brand's new logo. Despite the photos showing an oval notch instead of the usual triangle, the C3 Aircross would keep the brand's old logo, the new one being planned for the new C3, which will be the first.
This second generation of the C3 Aircross is important for the brand as it will allow it to enter a competitive and difficult segment where it is necessary to be able to offer liveable vehicles with up to 7 seats while keeping prices competitive. To meet this challenge, Citroën will draw on its experience with the C3, with which the future C3 Aircross will share many elements such as the bonnet, headlights and front doors, as well as some parts of the cabin. However, if the C3 Aircross is to be based on the CMP platform, it will have a longer wheelbase, probably around 2m65, as it should be significantly longer than the current generation.
At the rear, the future C3 Aircross should have a very vertical tailgate, necessary to offer enough space for the 7 occupants, a tailgate whose window should continue on the rear wings to bring more light into the passenger compartment and lighten the otherwise heavy rear quarter panel. The rear lights should take up the architecture of the Oli concept, with two horizontal bands framing the vertical brake light, rather massive blocks that should stand out from the body like the current C5 Aircross.
In less than a month, Citroën will finally unveil this long-awaited C3 Aircross, which will allow the brand to expand its presence in India and Latin America, increasing its sales and making it less dependent on Europe. . This C3 Aircross will also provide clues as to the European version, which, if it should present a completely different design, will give a fairly clear overview of the characteristics of this second generation.
