After its first appearance in Europe for the winter tests, the future C3 Aircross has just been photographed again in India, where it continues its development tests. This new batch of photos allows you to see, for the very first time, the interior of the C3's big brother.
The C3 and the C3 Aircross will share certain parts on the outside (bonnet and front doors in particular) and the same process should take place on the inside as this photo shows that the dashboard is very close to that of the C3, where we find exactly the same parts on the C3 as on the C3 Aircross. Citroën is following in the footsteps of Peugeot, which offers the same interior on the 208 and 2008, as well as certain exterior elements, in particular the headlights on the Peugeot.
The front seats and door panels on this C3 Aircross appear to be the same as on the C3, as do the centre console, steering wheel, gear lever and air vents, which are identical to those on its little sister, as well as the controls for the manual air conditioning. However, this first photo also seems to indicate that the C3 Aircross will be more upmarket than the C3, as can be seen from the gear lever gaiter, which seems to be in leather here, as well as the handbrake, although these two elements are not without leather on the C3. This difference could indicate that the C3 Aircross is a bit more upmarket than its C3 sibling, which would make sense as it would be sold at a higher price.
At the same time as the dashboard, the C3 Aircross was photographed, which allows us to see that Citroën's future urban SUV will be significantly larger than the C3 (could it reach 4m40?), with an extended wheelbase and a large rear overhang. The tailgate is surmounted by a large spoiler and you can also see the shark aerial, which is not present on the C3, which still has an old aerial and which seems to confirm that the future C3 Aircross will be more upmarket than the C3.
The future C3 Aircross will occupy most of the brand's global news in the coming weeks, as its launch could take place in a few weeks, in any case in the first half of the year. We will then know more about this urban SUV, which should be available in 5 and 7-seater versions, but above all we will see the style it adopts and the first elements of the Oli concept, particularly with regard to the rear lights.
