Geneva 2012 – Citroen C4 Aircross
Scheduled to go on sale this fall, the Citroen C4 Aircross has made its public debut last week at the Geneva Motor Show. Design-wise, the car borrows a few styling cues from the Hypnos concept that we’ve seen back in 2008, especially if we look at the taillights and the 18-inch alloy wheels.
This five-seat compact SUV measures 4340mm long, 1630mm high and it is 1800mm wide. It comes with a unique panoramic glass sunroof that at night is illuminated by LED lights. The cargo volume offered by the C4 Aircross is of 442 liters.
When this French sport utility sport vehicle will hit the dealerships it will only have a 2WD configuration for the 1.6-liter gasoline unit that pumps out 114 hp, along with a 1.8-liter diesel that generates 150 hp. There’s also going to be a 1.6-liter diesel with 110 hp which will be available in both 2WD and 4WD. Both diesels are going to be linked to a 6-speed manual transmission, while the gasoline-powered C4 Aircross is going to get a 5-speed transmission. In the European market, the 2.0-liter gasoline engine will not be available.
As far as the design is concerned, we notice that it has integrated LEDs in the front, light guides in the rear light clusters, indicator repeaters integrated in the door mirrors, along with a built-in rear-view camera. Inside the cabin we find GPS with sat-nav system, Bluetooth and USB connection.
The car shown in Geneva is an exclusive version of the compact SUV as it wears a Vapor Gray frosted-texture paint finish, while the door handles, door mirrors and the roof bars are now all chrome-finished in order to match the car’s new color.
