The Citroën C3 Aircross SUV was launched worldwide less than two years ago and already, more than 200,000 units of the compact SUV have been sold across the globe. This very model which was launched here in Malaysia just two months ago (courtesy of Naza Euro Motors) promises amazing performance and great styling at only RM115,888 (OTR without insurance).
The huge achievement is all thanks on how the C3 Aircross is able to capture the market with its exceptional space, modern driving technology, comfort as well as safety. 17,000 units alone were sold in the UK and judging by its looks, we can see why as it has successfully captured the hearts of the younger generation.
If you’re looking for a B-segment SUV that stands out in the crowd, the C3 Aircross should be seriously considered in your top picks in your best compact SUV list. Europe seems to agree as it the brand’s second best-selling passenger vehicle and the sixth best-selling model in its segment in Europe.
Quoting from Yasser Awan, Chief Executive Officer, Naza Euro Motors Sdn Bhd, during the model’s official Malaysian debut, “Bringing together all of Citroën’s expertise in cabin space, modular design and comfort, this people-minded SUV stands out in the B-segment SUV with its unique body styling.”
“We are confident that the All-New Citroën C3 Aircross SUV will be well received among SUV fans in Malaysia as this truly is the most spacious and versatile urban SUV that offers practicality, class-leading space and safety features distinctive to Citroën.”
Powered with the very French ‘small but powerful’ 1.2-liter PureTech three-cylinder turbocharged engine, the current C3 Aircross offering in Malaysia produces a cool 110hp and 205Nm of torque. Thanks to the addition of a six-speed Tiptronic auto transmission, 0-100km/h is achieved in 10.4 seconds. Hit the pedal to the metal hard enough and you’ll soon reach its max speed of 200km/h.
The main attraction of the C3 Aircross, however, is in the details. Modern, stylish, and chic come to mind when thinking of the perfect adjectives to describe the compact SUV. Fans also pointed out how beautiful its 17-inch diamond-cut “4Ever” alloy wheels that brings the whole look together.
