01 - DESIGN : AN AFFIRMED SUV
Resolutely optimistic, the C-Aircross concept presents a singular personality and affirmed in the world of the SUV. Its very modern design relies on a unique morphology which gives it both robustness and energy. C-Aircross Concept imposes it in all relaxation and without aggressiveness. In terms of posture, the concept is distinguished at first glance by its short and high perched hood and its worn but non-aggressive front, a territory of unprecedented expression in the highly codified world of the SUV. This high front block gives it a horizontal overall balance to cover fluid and muscular volumes. His reassuring shapes as well as his body shapes very ample intensify his attitude and bring him full confidence and strength.
Through the C-Aircross Concept, the Citroën Style teams were able to combine the fluidity of the lines with the attributes of an SUV, on a model with compact dimensions (length: 4.15m, width: 1.74m, height: 1 , 63m). Its silhouette is visually enhanced by protections that surround the body in the lower part. The C-Aircross concept is designed for adventure, with front and rear protection shields in glossy black, wheel coverings with revised stealth camouflage, and side shields at the bottom. And to further accentuate its baroudeur aspect, the concept is pitched on 18-inch diamond wheels with creative and sculptural design, which suggest a high driving position and all-round abilities.
Consistent with the brand identity, the C-Aircross concept inherits a front face all round in its treatise and full of assurance, as well as a two-stage light signature. The LED daytime running lights attached to the grille at the top are separated from the main lighting function in the lower part. The performance of the back, pure and graphic, is equally asserted in terms of style. The C-Aircross concept has marked shoulders highlighting on each side of the vehicle 3D rear lights made up of 3 highly technological floating light rings.
This same floating aspect is found in the decoration of the custodes and the pavilion. True signatures of the concept, the two floating back custodes backlit with strong graphic contrast were thought as aerodynamic shutters while the pavilion is surmounted by a panoramic glass roof allowing to multiply the sources of light. Stylized and inscribed in the material, the Coral Fluo custodes, make it possible to conceal the interior of the vehicle, without preventing the light from entering. The large overall glass surface and the large cabin reinforce the uniqueness of this concept, which suggests a roomy and bright interior.
Drawing on the Product and Style markers on the new C3, the C-Aircross concept alternates smooth surfaces and graphic contrasts that come alive with colorful pointers. The Blue tint elegantly dresses the whole body and contrasts with the Coral Fluo color, used for each of the colorful punctuals that emphasize the "fun" spirit of this concept for leisure. These are Coral Fluo color customization elements: headlamp contours, wheel cabs, side guards and roof rails that incorporate LED lighting at their ends.
Another key element in the development of this concept is the consideration of aerodynamics.This is reflected first of all in the modeling of the concept and its overall balance. Each surface was thought by taking into account the induced air flow. In addition to increasing efficiency, the concept is equipped with air intakes piloted in the front bumper, air intakes integrated in the protections of the doors side air breather, or a rear diffuser for the service of Aerodynamics.

In addition to a mono-branch steering wheel with intuitive controls, a true nod to the history of the Marque, the dashboard covered with fabric accommodates a blade "vision head-up" smoke gathering all the instrumentation in the field Of the driver. The display of the color information is in perfect consistency with this SUV with the strong color scheme. In the center of the dashboard, is a large 12-inch touchscreen display to the specific graphic universe featuring various driving and infotainment information. It opens in the lower part on a large central console that extends from the front seats to the rear seats and gives priority to useful storage.
Worked in nuances in a combination of light gray and vitaminized orange tones and in the form of a floating and purified headband, the instrument panel plays contrasts in the door panes and leaves room for many storage spaces. A large deposit-object area runs the entire width of the board and acts as a decor sublimated by its orange color. The C-Aircross concept car offers colorful spotlights on the aerators and seat belt buckles. The Corail Fluo, dominating at ground level and floor mats, creates a beautiful tone-on-tone effect.
This warm and colorful association is also found in the upholstery dressed in a thick fabric soft to the touch. The seats in the bench seat recapture this same gradation of gray and orange tints in width. Their cutting colors and materials in harmony with that of the dashboard and all horizontally reinforces the graphic and unique spirit of the Citroën C-Aircross Concept.
