Citroen press release :
Citroën has announced a new Airdream+ range, thanks to the
introduction of two environmentally sensitive and economically
rewarding Airdream+ versions of C3 Picasso and C4 Hatchback.  These two
new models make up the range alongside the existing 99g/km New C3
Airdream+, which was launched at the start of the year.   
With combined cycle fuel economy of between 62.8mpg and 74.3mpg, and CO2 emissions from just 99g to 119g/km, the Airdream+ range delivers low running costs and free first year VED.
Showcasing Citroën’s smart, ‘green’ technologies, Airdream+ models
feature fuel-efficient HDi engines, ‘optimised’ gearbox technology and
a focus on environmentally considerate engineering. They also come with
an array of complimentary equipment, on top of the VTR+ specification
on which they are based.
The Airdream+ range is powered by Citroën’s lauded HDi diesel
technology – with New C3 and C4 models featuring the Company’s renowned
Diesel Particulate Filter System (DPFS).  An ‘optimised’ manual gearbox
with a Gear Efficiency Indicator is specified on the New C3 Airdream+,
and a fuel-saving Auto EGS gearbox features on the C4 Airdream+.  A
part-by-part focus on reducing overall weight, the use of 85%
re-cyclable components and a number of ‘green’ materials during
manufacture, also support the range’s ecological credentials.
Environmentally sensitive and economical to run, the Airdream+ range
is also exceptionally well equipped, with all three Airdream+ models
boasting additional equipment over and above the VTR+ specification –
at no extra cost. 

  • The New C3 Airdream+ gains rear parking sensors and a Connecting
    Box, which features Bluetooth® and a USB socket for portable music
  • The C3 Picasso Airdream+ also benefits from the Connecting Box,
    plus rear parking sensors, electric rear windows and electrically
    adjustable, heated and folding door mirrors.
  • The C4 Hatchback Airdream+ gains the Connecting Box and rear
    parking sensors, as well as automatic digital air conditioning (manual
    air conditioning is specified on the equivalent VTR+ model).
