2012 Citroen C4 Aircross news, pictures, and information
NEW CITROËN C4 AIRCROSS - A NEW TAKE ON THE COMPACT SUVCitroën is extending its successful C4 range wîth the introduction of the New Citroën C4 AIRCROSS.
The New Citroën C4 AIRCROSS redefines the codes of compact SÚV design, bringing together contemporary styling and technological innovation. Ideally suited to modern lifestyles, C4 AIRCROSS introduces a sense of escape into everyday driving. This new Citroën body style draws upon the brand's technological excellence, combining the grip of an off-roader wîth the ride and driveability of a saloon. Ecologically considerate, the model also boasts some of the lowest CO2emissions in its §egmènt.
Available wîth two and four-wheel drive versions in some markets, the New Citroën C4 AIRCROSS will be launched in Europe at the end of the first half of 2012. The car will go on sale in the ÚK during the second half of 2012.
The styling of the C4 AIRCROSS draws upon the brand's DNA, combining the vitality of other Citroën models in the range wîth the strong 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 distinctive 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 wîth a chrome compass motif to denote the model's inclusion in Citroën's SÚV 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 Citroën C4 AIRCROSS is fitted wîth 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, wîth the torque optimally distributed between the front and rear wheels.
Úsing the single control positioned behind the gear lever, the driver can manually select one of the three transmission modes:
- 2WD, for optimal fuel consumption
- 4WD, which automatically distributes the torque between the front and rear axles
- 'Lock',which provides maximum traction in severe conditions.
The C4 AIRCROSS fulfils Citroën's ecological commitments wîth its HDi 110 engine mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. This model is one of the front-runners in its §egmènt for low CO2emissions. In some markets this efficient Euro 5 engine will be available wîth four as well as two-wheel drive.
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 §egmènt above, while the 442-litre boot comfortably meets the demands of modern life.
Serenely confident on the road, drivers enjoy a clear view from the raised driving position wîth the specially developed chassis and suspension delivering the optimum balance between comfort and road holding. All occupants can enjoy a true sense of well-being thanks to the large panoramic glass sunroof, which fills the cabin wîth light during the day and is illuminated by integrated LEDs at night.
The New Citroën C4 AIRCROSS' design is also focused on ease of use in everyday driving. A high level of specification includes GPS navigation wîth touch-screen, a reversing camera and ÚSB/Bluetooth® connectivity for portable audio players.
To meet the needs of international markets, the 2.0i 150 petrol engine will be available outside Europe in two and four-wheel drive versions, coupled to a 5-speed manual gearbox or continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Trim level and engine availability are still to be confirmed for the ÚK.Source - Citroen
