After an already long career, the Citroen C3 Aircross received a well deserved facelift. Now, June, 2021 marks the commercial launch of the Citroën C3 Aircross SUV in the UK.

The introduction of new C3 Aircross SUV sees a host of exterior and interior updates, including a re-designed front end for a more assertive look and enhanced status. Inspired by the CXPERIENCE concept car, the ‘front face’ is the latest representation of Citroën’s new design signature. The distinctive and unique identity can also be seen across other recently launched models in the range, including new C3, new C4 and new ë-C4 – 100% ëlectric.

The new front end integrates chrome-trimmed chevrons that extend out towards the slim and distinctive LED headlights. New C3 Aircross SUV also sports a front bumper and radiator grille with a brand-new, intricate geometric pattern and a new aluminium-grey skid plate with coloured inserts that further enhance the model’s sense of robustness.

Other enhancements to the exterior design of the new C3 Aircross SUV include the availability of new 16 and 17-inch alloy wheel designs, as well as three new body-colours – including striking ‘Voltaic Blue’ – and two new Colour Packs (Anodised Orange and Anodised Dark Blue). The Colour Packs add splashes of colour to the front bumper, the door mirrors and on the rear quarter-light windows. At the rear, the light clusters take on a new darker appearance.
