Citroen Aircross

Citroen Aircross

The Citroen Aircross is a boldy-styled SUV concept that features the similar chunky design as the production Citroen C4 Cactus.

The Aircross concept is a large vehicle, riding on 22-inch wheels, and with "king-size" chairs in the cabin. It's a vehicle designed to stand out from the crowd, and look a little different to the average SUV on the block.

Citroen say they designed the Aircross concept to convey a strong sense of identity and a "resolutely optimistic spirit". The interior of the vehicle is intended to offer a "modern, bright, fresh and functional design for the occupants' physical and mental well-being". Both statements are essentially a load of marketing rubbish. But they do point to the fact Citroen have designed this vehicle with passenger comfort taking precedent over off-road ability or cargo-hauling practicality.

Like the C4 Cactus, the Aircross features "Airbumps", although they have been adapted for the vehicle's SUV role. Whilst the Airbump technology used on the C4 Cactus is designed to protect the car's body from everyday bumps and scrapes, the 'Alloy Bumps' on the Citroën Aircross are there to protect the vehicle from lateral impact. The 'Alloy Bumps' are made using a highly absorbent aluminium honeycomb structure.

The interior, which looks like it has been teleported in from the 1970s, offers seating for four, with the driver and passengers each getting large, well padded thrones to sit in. There are a multitude of display screens throughout the cabin, some for instrumentation and navigation, and others for entertainment.

Powering the Citroen Aircross is a plug-in rechargeable drivetrain which consists of a 1.6 litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 218 horsepower, which is backed up by a 95 horsepower electric motor supplied by a quick-charge lithium-ion battery pack.

With this drivetrain, which produces a peak output of 313 horsepower, the Citroen Aircross concept is able to go from 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds, while also offering 166 mpg in the MVEG combined cycle.
