Available with two and four-wheel drive versions in some markets, the New Citroen C4 Aircross will be launched in Europe at the end of the first half of 2012. 

The styling of the C4 Aircross draws upon the brand’s DNA, combining the vitality of other Citroen models in the range with the presence of an off-roader.  The sculpted horizontal lines and aerodynamic vents of the front end accentuate the model’s compact appearance.  The contours of the bonnet - visible from the driver's seat - the wide wheel arches and the reduced front and rear overhangs all combine to enhance the overall impression of robustness.

The light signature at the front - illuminated both day and night - is created by LEDs integrated into the vertical vents.  The shape of the large 18-inch wheels and the rear lights are directly inspired by the Hypnos concept car, reworked for optimal air flow and reduced CO2emissions.  Seen from the side, the inverted shark fin at the rear also hints at the design of the Hypnos concept.  The fin is decorated at the tip with a chrome compass motif to denote the model’s inclusion in Citroën’s SUV family.  The sophisticated design includes indicator repeaters in the door mirrors, light guides in the rear light clusters and a reversing camera built into the chrome trim on the tailgate.

The New Citroen C4 Aircross is fitted with a latest generationfour-wheel transmission system, providing optimal handling in all conditions.  This technology allows the car to be driven permanently in four-wheel drive mode, with the torque optimally distributed between the front and rear wheels.

The model’s compact dimensions - 4.34m long, 1.80m wide, 1.63m high - and 10.6m turning circle ensure outstanding manoeuvrability in the urban environment.  The comfort of this 5-seater is worthy of the saloon segment above, while the 442-litre boot comfortably meets the demands of modern life.
