The expectation is that the SUV with this configuration will be launched close to the arrival of the new Chevrolet Spin, which will also undergo a major renovation next year.

'We believe that the 1.0 turbo engine is more than suitable for the C3 Aircross, due to the CMP platform that allows us this modularization. This results in more safety, space and robustness, without adding as much weight. The numbers prove this understanding,' stated Márcio Tonani, vice-president of the technology center at stellantis, during the presentation.

A stellantis had already announced that the Citroen C3 Aircross would be equipped with the 1.0 turbo engine of the GSE family, the same one used in the Fiat pulse and Peugeot 208. In this SUV, the engine produces 130 hp and 20,4 kgf/m of torque, combined with a CVT type transmission with seven-speed simulation. According to the manufacturer, the vehicle reaches 0 to 100 km/h in 9,7 seconds and has a consumption of 7,4 km/l in the city and 8,6 km/l on the highway with ethanol, and 10,6 km/l on the highway. city ​​and 12 km/l on the highway with gasoline.

Physically, we are talking about a vehicle with good dimensions, measuring 4,32m long, 1,72m wide, 1,67m high and with a wheelbase of 2,67m — the latter being the largest in Brazil in the category, which allowed Citroën to offer the C3 Aircross in seven-seat versions. This makes this SUV be the only one in your category to have a third row of seats.
