Citroën is extending its successful C4 range with the introduction of the New Citroën C4 AIRCROSS. Available with two and four-wheel drive versions in some markets, it will be launched in Europe at the end of the first half of 2012.

The C4 AIRCROSS redefines the codes of compact SUV design, bringing together contemporary styling and technological innovation. The body style draws upon the brand’s technological excellence, combining the grip of an off-roader with the ride and driveability of a saloon.
The sculpted horizontal lines and aerodynamic vents of the front end accentuate the model’s compact appearance. The contours of the bonnet, 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, revealed in 2008 in Paris, as well as the inverted shark fin at the rear. The fin is decorated at the tip with a chrome compass motif to denote the model’s inclusion in Citroën’s SUV family.
The new C4 AIRCROSS is fitted with a latest generation four-wheel transmission system, providing optimal handling in all conditions.  This technology allows the car to be driven permanently in four-wheel drive mode, with the torque optimally distributed between the front and rear wheels. Using the single control positioned behind the gear lever, the driver can manually select one of the three transmission modes: 2WD, 4WD which automatically distributes the torque between the front and rear axles and ‘Lock’, which provides maximum traction in severe conditions.
The C4 AIRCROSS fulfils Citroën’s ecological commitments with its HDi 110 and 150 engines mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox with maximum power of 82kW and 110kW. There will be also two petrol engines, an 1.6i paired with 5-speed manual transmission with 85kW output, available also in Europe and the 2.0i 150 engine to meet the needs of international markets, only available outside Europe in two and four-wheel drive versions, coupled to a 5-speed manual gearbox or continuously variable transmission (CVT).
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 segment above, while the 442-litre boot comfortably meets the demands of modern life. All occupants can enjoy the large panoramic glass sunroof, which fills the cabin with 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 with touch-screen, a reversing camera and USB/Bluetooth connectivity for portable audio players.
