The term compact SUV is applied these days to a whole range of car, some of which aren’t really compact and some not really SUVs. But with the new 2017 Citroen C3 Aircross the nail is hit bang on the head. The car does possess enough space and off road abilities to deserve the title of ‘sport utility’ and it truly is compact, being based on the C3 city car.
Citroen C3 Aircross is also cute and charming and versatile,boasting funky looks and an interior which is a tad unusual but under no circumstances boring. Among the main highlights of the car there is the modular design and a large opening panoramic glass sunroof, a more than acceptable boot with good height and depth, and remarkable technology features such as Grip Control, Hill Descent Assist, 12 driver assistance systems (including Colour Head-up Display) Active Safety Brake, Intelligent Beam Headlights and Speed Sign Recognition and Recommendation, as well as Park Assist and Citroen Connect Nav, plus connectivity technologies such as Wireless Smartphone Charging.
