By his own admission, Citroënm doesn’t allow cars to take corners quickly, and nowhere is this more evident than at the helm of the C3 Aircross. redynamically away from nimble segment leaders such as the Puma and Seat Arona, it swings around corners with voluntary surrender, making repeated fast corners an almost nauseating experience.
Unfortunately, that sluggishness doesn’t translate into a perfectly cushioned secondary ride either, with potholes and expansion joints sending tangible jerks through the seat bases and the steering column.
Where the C3 Aircross shines is in its impressive interior packaging and welcoming ambience. The rear bench slides, tilts and folds flat, essentially transforming it into a small van, while the now unconventional flat roofline provides excellent rear headroom and load carrying capacity.
Exceptionally, the front passenger seat also folds flat, which we are told allows three Billy bookcases to be comfortably transported home from Ikea. In addition, a multitude of spacious lockers are scattered throughout the cabin for all the small items that family life brings.
Honestly, it looks like a big car. While competitors pursue the hallmarks with sloping roof lines and rising window lines, the C3 Aircross remains as true to lightness and space as its humble ancestor C3 Picasso did, and doing so fondly reminds us of a whole class of straight two-box cars. which apparently disappeared overnight (the Skoda Roomster, anyone?).
It’s cute without compromise and for a certain type of buyer this will really be all the car you could possibly need, for a lot less money than you might think.
