The new C4 Aircross could be one of the new projects in which Citroen is immersed, an SUV-type vehicle that would be included between the C3 Aircross and the C5 Aircross.
The new third-generation Citroen C4 was presented in 2020 as a compact vehicle with a five-door hatchback body and certain styling cues typical of crossovers. Well, the French firm could be working on expanding the range of this model with a body with purer forms in the style of an SUV, a car that could be included in the French range between the recently renewed C3 Aircross and C5 Aircross.
True to the nomenclature used by the French brand in its SUV-type vehicles, everything suggests that the new vehicle in question should be called the C4 Aircross. In fact, in the last few hours, various official information and various illustrations/recreations of what the final production model could look like have appeared on the Internet.
Some French media unofficially point out that this next C4 Aircross could be presented at the end of 2022, while its marketing would take place throughout 2023. However, other media outlets indicate that this model is initially canceled in the short and medium-term projects of the Stellantis Group manufacturer.
As the illustrations appearing on the Internet suggest, the new C4 Aircross should have a taller body than the C4 hatchback that we already know, while its exterior should feature marked wheel arches, oversized bumpers, and the unmistakable parts “Airbump” on the sides that would have various accents of a different color than the rest of the bodywork.
Upfront, the 2023 C4 Aircross will most likely receive the new dual headlight treatment with LED graphics as extensions of the dual chevron emblem. At the rear, the model should have a more conventional roofline compared to the coupe-style C4, allowing more headroom for rear passengers and a larger capacity boot.
If this new vehicle has the final approval of its production, the car should be based from the structural and technical point of view on the Stellantis CMP platform, so it would share genes with the aforementioned C4 and other models. of the Group such as the Peugeot 208/2008, Opel Corsa, DS 3 Crossback and Opel Mokka.
The range of engines should include the 1.2-liter Puretech petrol blocks and the 1.5-liter BlueHDi diesel, with powers that would range, depending on the version, between 100 and 155 hp. In addition, a fully electric powertrain would be a good alternative in the range, a version of which could incorporate a 50 kWh capacity battery and a 100 kW (136 hp) electric motor.
Between the 4.15 m length of the C3 Aircross and the 4.51 m length of the C5 Aircross, it would therefore make a lot of sense for Citroen to make this hypothetical C4 Aircross a reality, which would measure around 4.30/ 4.35m.
