While it has just been launched in Brazil, with the first deliveries scheduled for February, the new Citroën C3 Aircross made its first public appearance at the "Summer Car Show" organised by Stellantis in Argentina. As usual, the Stellantis brands, along with other manufacturers, were present on the beaches of Cariló to present their ranges to the holidaymakers who take advantage of the summer holidays to go to the Atlantic coast.
The Stellantis Group is changing its habits this year, 2024, by creating the first Summer Car Show, a unique exhibition space located on Route 11, between Cariló and Villa Gesell, where the Group will offer various activities for visitors every day from 4pm to midnight until 18 February. This is the perfect opportunity for Argentine consumers to discover for the first time the all-new Citroën C3 Aircross, which is making its first public appearance on Argentine soil since its official presentation in April 2023.
It is therefore also an opportunity to see the C3 Aircross in real conditions, in natural light, but above all to see it close to Citroën's large SUV, its big brother, the C5 Aircross. It is clear from these photos that the new C3 Aircross looks very close to its big brother, with a half-full quarter window and not fully glazed.
The new C3 Aircross, which will be launched in Argentina in March 2024, presents a distinguished and powerful design, with a very interesting impression of size, clearly superior to its direct competitors and even to the upper levels of the segment. An SUV with ample space for the whole family, on-board technology with a 10-inch touch screen and up to 5 USB ports to keep everyone connected. The new C3 Aircross is also unique in that it is the only compact SUV to offer up to 7 seats. Finally, the latest addition to the brand will offer a choice of 2 engines in Argentina: 1.6 115CV with 5-speed manual gearbox and 1.0 turbo 120CV coupled to a 7-speed CVT gearbox.
The Summer Car Show 2024 is also the occasion for Citroën to present the redesigned C4 Cactus in its special Black edition, alongside the C3 and C5 Aircross, a complete range of four vehicles that will conquer the Argentinean market. The 2024 Summer Motor Show will offer numerous activities, including concerts every Saturday from 20 January (20.01. - Franzizca and Anita B Queen, 27.01. - Silvestre and La Naranja, 03.02. - Zoe Gotusso and 10.02. - Ainda).
In conclusion, Citroën is taking advantage of the Stellantis Summer Car Show 2024 to present its entire range, including the new C3 Aircross, which is making its first public appearance here a few weeks before its market launch in March. This bodes well for the career of the brand's latest addition and for Citroën's sales, which need to increase in order to meet its sales targets in the region.
