The Top Gear car review:Citroen C3 Aircross
Final thoughts and pick of the range
As a family car for urban and suburban use, the Aircross makes is a fine new entrant. It’s got loads of space in a short overall footprint, and great outward visibility for kids. Rear-seat and boot space are well above class norms, and it’s versatile too.
The looks are a matter of personal taste, but certainly get away from the small-crossover norms. Prices are reasonable too. While several items of kit that rivals have as standard reside on the Aircross’s options list, those options packs are cheap.
On the move, its loping ride makes easy work of urban potholes, and the seat comfort adds to the sense of relaxation. Cornering is safe and predictable, if not engaging – but what rivals can claim any better?
We’d go for the 110bhp petrol engine as it’s clean in town and has the power and torque to take a family onto hilly open roads too. This isn’t the sort of car where you’ll be running up enough mileage to make use of the economy advantage of diesel. Add the family pack and some cosmetics to the mid-range Feel spec, and you’ll be hovering around £18k. It’s a distinctive and handy small car for the money.
