Geneva Motor Show 2017: Citroen C3 Aircross concept previews new C3 Picasso

Published 07 March 2017

Citroen has premiered the C3 Aircross Concept at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, which previews the upcoming C3 Picasso model - only this time it’s less MPV and more SUV. Fashionable. The production car will be on sale by the end of 2017, with prices from approximately £16,500. 

There’s plenty going on with the concept that won’t make production, like the microscopic door mirrors, fancy alloy wheels and textured rubber body-cladding – but in terms of overall appearance, this is the new Picasso.

The concept has Grip Control – a front-wheel drive system that provides some extra traction on loose or slippery surface via clever electronics – which will make production too.

Engine details are to be confirmed, but 1.2-litre PureTech petrols and 1.6-litre BlueHDI diesels are the likely candidates, which in the C3 have power outputs from 68PS to 110PS.

C3 technology will make it into the C3 Picasso too – so there’ll be a built-in dash camera and a touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink smartphone support.

And, typically for Citroen models of late, there’ll be a whole host of customisation options for things like the exterior Airbumps and interior dashboard inlays, so there'll be plenty to keep you busy in the online configurator.
