Citroën C3 Aircross

(2017 - present)

The Citroën C3 Aircross is a small SUV/crossover that shares its platform and many components with sister models, the Peugeot 2008 and Vauxhall Crossland X. It was revealed in early 2017 and went on sale at the end of that year.

The C3 Aircross has received average to good reviews from the UK motoring media, with an overall Expert Rating of 72% as of May 2020. When it was first launched, that was good enough to rank it towards the top of the small SUV/crossover class, but newer models like the Ford Puma and Volkswagen T-Cross have raised the bar for this market segment, and the C3 Aircross has fallen back into the midfield.

The Citroën C3 Aircross has received praise from reviewers for its versatility and individual styling that distinguishes it from many of its rivals, but has been criticised for a lack of refinement and relatively poor standard specification.
