Paul Barker (Company Car Today) commented; “Characterful and very good value, New C3 Aircross manages to grab attention in the busiest area of the market.”

Debbie Wood (BusinessCar) said; “For me New C3 Aircross wins for its keen pricing and very impressive comfort levels.”

This is the second prestigious UK title for our compact SUV since its launch less than three months ago, so it is a great achievement for us. The Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme is an integral part of our brand’s product offensive so it is pleasing to be recognised in this area. Following the recent announcement that New C3 Aircross has earned a five star Euro NCAP safety rating, the future looks bright for this latest addition to the range.”
