The premiere of the European crossover took place back in April, but only now Citroen has published prices and information about power units. Europeans are offered several modifications to choose from: with a gasoline internal combustion engine, hybrid and electric installations. In France, the fuel Citroen C3 Aircross of the second generation can be purchased for 19.4 thousand euros (1.73 million rubles at today’s exchange rate), the hybrid for 25.5 thousand euros (2.29 million rubles), and the electric cross will cost at least 27.4 thousand euros (2.45 million rubles).

The “second” Citroen C3 Aircross is based on the Smart Car platform – this is a budget alternative to the CMP “trolley”, and the Indian Tata was responsible for its development. In April, it was reported that with the change of generation, the crossover had increased in size, but now specifics have appeared: the length of the new C3 Aircross reaches 4.39 meters with a wheelbase of 2.67 meters, and the ground clearance “exceeds 200 millimeters.” In addition to the standard five-seater version, a three-row interior with seven seats is also announced for the model: in the first case, the trunk volume varies from 460 to 1600 liters, and in the seven-month version with the seats folded down it is only 40 liters.

Characteristics of power plants have also been published. The basic crossover is powered by a 102 horsepower petrol turbo engine, which, as Citroen assures, meets the Euro 7 environmental standard. It works in conjunction with a six-speed manual transmission. The hybrid C3 Aircross is equipped with a 1.2-liter internal combustion engine, boosted to 136 horsepower, and a 28-horsepower electric motor built into a robotic gearbox.

The Citroen assembly line was restarted in Kaluga: how did this become possible? In France, they investigated how the Citroen plant was restarted in Russia. The plant producing Citroen cars in Russia has registered a new brand.

Finally, the electric C3 Aircross received an electric motor with 113 horsepower and a battery with a capacity of 44 kilowatt-hours, on a single charge of which it travels up to 300 kilometers. The maximum speed is also given – 145 kilometers per hour. A quick charge from 20 to 80 percent takes 26 minutes, and a long charge takes just over four hours. Later, in 2025, a long-range version of the “green” C3 Aircross with a power reserve of more than 400 kilometers will appear.

Equipment for the new product includes 16- or 17-inch wheels, LED optics, an infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay (touch screen diagonal is 10.25 inches), air conditioning and wireless charging for a smartphone. A set of security systems is available, front and rear parking sensors, a traffic sign recognition system, blind spot monitoring and a high beam control system.

Accepting orders in Europe is already open.
