The styling of the C4 AIRCROSS draws upon the
brand’s DNA, combining the vitality of other CitroŽn models in the
range with the strong presence of an off-roader. The sculpted

the driver's seat - the wide wheel arches and the reduced front and
rear overhangs all combine to enhance the overall impression of
The distinctive light signature at the front
- illuminated both day and night - is created by LEDs integrated into
the vertical vents. The shape of the large 18-inch wheels and the rear
lights are directly inspired by the Hypnos concept car, reworked for
optimal air flow and reduced CO2 emissions. Seen from the
side, the inverted shark fin at the rear also hints at the design of
the Hypnos concept. The fin is decorated at the tip with a chrome
compass motif to denote the model’s inclusion in CitroŽn’s SUV family.
The sophisticated design includes indicator repeaters in the door
mirrors, light guides in the rear light clusters and a reversing camera
built into the chrome trim on the tailgate.

Using the single control positioned behind the gear lever, the driver can manually select one of the three transmission modes:
- 2WD, for optimal fuel consumption

C4 AIRCROSS fulfils CitroŽn’s ecological commitments with its HDi 110
engine mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. This model is one of the
front-runners in its segment for low CO2 emissions. In some markets this efficient Euro 5 engine will be available with four as well as two-wheel drive.
model’s compact dimensions - 4.34m long, 1.80m wide, 1.63m high - and
10.6m turning circle ensure outstanding manoeuvrability in the urban
environment. The comfort of this 5-seater is worthy of the saloon
segment above, while the 442-litre boot comfortably meets the demands
of modern life.
Serenely confident on the road, drivers
enjoy a clear view from the raised driving position with the specially
developed chassis and suspension delivering the optimum balance between
comfort and road holding. All occupants can enjoy a true sense of
well-being thanks to the large panoramic glass sunroof, which fills the
