The new front-end design signature – with its distinctive chrome-trimmed chevrons – has been updated, and enhanced with new standard-fit eco-LED headlights. In addition, the grille now features a new geometric pattern, while a new aluminium-grey coloured skid plate features coloured inserts to enhance the model’s purposeful appearance.
Inside, New C3 Aircross SUV is more functional than before thanks to a new central console that features a large storage space between the front seats – accessible to both the front and rear passengers – which closes with a sliding cover (Shine & Shine Plus).
Unparalleled versatility is provided by a rear bench that can slide forwards and backwards by 150mm (Shine Plus). Split 60/40, both parts can be moved independently for added practicality. As a result, boot volume can be increased from 410 to 520-litres (depending on the position of the rear bench) and enlarged again up to 1,289-litres with the rear seats folded down.
The personalisation options available on New C3 Aircross SUV have been upgraded to satisfy every customer's need. New C3 Aircross SUV can now be specified with a broad range of exterior style combinations based around seven body colours – three are new for 2021: 'Khaki Grey', 'Voltaic Blue' and 'Polar White'.
The choice of four Colour Packs (Shine & Shine Plus), includes two new colours featuring textured effects – Anodised Orange and Anodised Dark Blue. The Colour Packs include strikingly designed coloured touches on the edges of the front skid plate, on the door mirrors, and on the rear quarter-lights. The latter is also home to a new side signature graphic. The ‘Freeglass’ side signature is available with the White and Anodised Orange Colour Packs, and is colour-coded to match the chosen pack. Alternatively, the ‘Reflective’ design option is available with the Black and Anodised Dark Blue Colour Packs and is a consistent chrome design regardless of the colour chosen.
'C-Series' models feature a bespoke Regal Red Colour Pack and clear inserts on the rear quarter-lights.
In addition, customers can also choose between three roof finishes – Perla Nera Black, Polar White, or monotone (body coloured).
On the inside, over and above the standard interior – which features grey seat upholstery combined with a textured grey dashboard – two new interior ambiances are introduced into the range:
Both the Metropolitan Graphite and Hype Grey interiors adorn Citroën Advanced Comfort® seats, which are supremely comfortable and feature the same distinctive topstitching that was first introduced on New C4.
'C-Series' models feature Graphite Grey cloth upholstery with a Regal Red strip, whilst 'Shine' models boast Mica Grey cloth trim with light grey detailing.
New C3 Aircross SUV offers even greater onboard comfort thanks to its new Advanced Comfort seats. Available with both the Metropolitan Graphite and Hype Grey ambiances, Advanced Comfort seats improve comfort in four ways:
New C3 Aircross SUV is available with a range of award-winning, powerful and advanced PureTech petrol engines, and an efficient BlueHDi Diesel – all of which meet the latest-generation Euro 6d emissions standard.

New C3 Aircross SUV is also available with Citroën’s Active Safety Brake with Forward Collision Alert technology (Shine & Shine Plus), and reversing camera technology (Shine Plus), as well as Citroën Connect Box Emergency & Assistance (Shine & Shine Plus) – which automatically alerts the emergency services in the event of an accident.
Customers can choose from a trio of specifications in the new model range:
The core model features diamond-cut 16-inch alloy wheels, black roof bars, and the Anodised Regal Red Colour Pack with a monotone roof, as standard. Automatic eco-LED headlights and LED daytime running lights combine with separate fog lamps at the front of the car. At the rear, parking sensors also feature as standard.
The redesigned centre console provides enhanced stowage and cup holders, and the Graphite Grey upholstery combines with white stitching and satin chrome trim for a premium feel. Advanced technology includes a six-speaker infotainment system with DAB radio and Bluetooth® connectivity, all controlled via a seven-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto compatibility.
The Black exterior Colour Pack with the ‘Reflective’ rear quarter-light design helps to identify the Shine model on the outside, while Mica Grey cloth upholstery and chrome trim feature inside. Practicality is enhanced by the 'Flex Load / Pull Out' boot floor, while connectivity is boosted by a larger nine-inch infotainment touchscreen with Citroën Connect Nav (includes a three-year subscription to Real-Time Traffic and alerts). Advanced safety is provided by Active Safety Brake with Forward Collision Alert.
Top-of-the-range Shine Plus specification includes a White Colour Pack with the ‘Freeglass’ quarter-light graphic, a Perla Nera Black bi-tone roof, larger 17-inch alloy wheels, and the upgraded Metropolitan Graphite interior – which adds Citroën Advanced Comfort seats, a gloss black centre console, and satin chrome trim.
Front parking sensors and a rear vision camera aid low-speed manoeuvring, while keyless entry and start deliver enhanced convenience. Practicality is boosted by a flat-folding front passenger seat and sliding 60/40 split rear bench. The folding front passenger seat gives New C3 Aircross SUV a maximum load length of 2.40m – ideal for transporting long objects such as furniture and sports equipment.
