    5 Key Differences That You’ll Notice Between The Citroen C3 And C3 Aircross

    The compact SUV segment in India is set to get another contender soon in the form of the Citroen C3 Aircross. Being a stretched-out version of the C3 hatchback, it certainly has many similarities with the latter. That said, Citroen has ensured both stand apart in their own ways by giving the C3 Aircross some differences. Let’s see what are they:

    A Revised Styling -Until now, Citroen had two cars in India – the C3 and C5 Aircross – at two very different ends of the price spectrum. The C3 Aircross, which will sit in the middle of the two in its lineup, seems to have borrowed design cues from both the models. While it does have the C3-like split LED DRL setup, the SUV has been given a bigger and wider grille. Its lower half of the front bumper is reminiscent of the C5 Aircross’s.

    Interior And Features -While the C3 hatchback gets a black cabin theme with an orange insert in the dashboard, Citroen is offering the C3 Aircross with a more mature black and beige interior with a brown trim on the dashboard.

    Extra Row Of Seats -The C3 Aircross’s major difference over the C3 is the option of a seven-seater layout, having the third row of seats. Like the Renault Triber, the Citroen SUV’s third row seats are removable to open up a boot capacity of over 500 litres. The carmaker will also be offering the SUV in a 5-seater version with some feature differences.

    Longer Footprint -With the option of three rows of seats, the C3 Aircross is significantly longer than the C3 hatchback. The SUV is longer overall by more than 300mm while its wheelbase is longer by 100mm compared to that of the C3.

    One (Change) In Powertrain -Citroen offers the C3 hatchback with two petrol engines: 1.2-litre naturally aspirated unit (82PS/115Nm) and a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine (110PS/190Nm). While the former gets a 5-speed MT, the latter comes with a 6-speed MT.
