Citroen debuts C3 Picasso-based AirCross in Brazil
Citroen isn’t forgetting about its presence in Brazil, and has just revealed the first pictures of a new AirCross model using Twitter.
As you can see, the new model is basically a more off-road-ready variant of the current C3 Picasso MPV. It has received a design overhaul, with plenty of “rugged” plastics being added to the exterior. Also, it can join the big SUV club by having a spare tire mounted on the outside of the vehicle.
Set to debut later this year in Brazil, the Citroen AirCross will have ride on higher suspension and boast increased length, largely due to the rear-mounted tire. It is expected to have a single engine, either a 1.6-liter or a 2.0-liter unit, both flex-fuel capable, as is the norm in Brazil.
Given the fact that the Volkswagen group is also pushing these sorts of plastic-cladded models in Europe, it’s possible that Citroen will bring the AirCross over the Atlantic later this year. Until then, Brazilians should get ready for the official premiere of the vehicle.
