Citroen AirCross – based on Citroen C3 Picasso – revealedMon, 05 Apr 2010 00:00:00 -0700
The Citroen AirCross - looks like a South America only crossover
This could be a new car from Citroen, but it could just as easily be another of those oddities that car makers throw at the southern end of the Americas.
Citroen in Brazil has revealed – via Twitter – the Citroen AirCross, which is basically a Citroen C3 Picasso with a bit of Crossover / SUV butchness thrown in to create a rugged urban crossover. And it’s based on the old Citroen C3, which makes us think there’s a chance this may not be a world car.
The Citroen AirCross gets a new grill and and side skirts and a dose of ‘AirCross’ graphics splatted down the side. The suspension has obviously been jacked up a bit and the spare wheel gets bolted on the back in a sort of pseudo-rugged SUV way. The rear lights are also slightly different
Engine choice is said to be a 1.6 Flex petrol or a 2.0 litre from the C4. Both units are designed to run on either petrol or ethanol.
This story came in on then feed from WCF, who seem to think it will turn up in Europe at the Paris Motor Show. We don’t buy that. When we first saw the deatils of the Citroen AirCross we thought it sounded like a South American special. Now we’ve written the story, we’re convinced.
Still, interesting idea.
