The public got a glimpse of Citroën Aircross concept through a leaked photo and a bunch of teasers. The company has taken the wraps off this stunning model now and it would be even displayed at Auto Shanghai 2015. Aircross concept is much larger as compared to C4 Cactus. The length and width of the car are 4,850 mm and 2,100 mm respectively. Its height amounts to 1,800 mm and dynamic looks are ensured by 22-inch alloy wheels. It borrows styling cues from Cactus, but these features are bigger.

The airbumps of Cactus have now been modified into the alloy bumps. These have been manufactured from aluminum honeycomb castings. Hard rubber surrounds these castings, but chances are low that this feature would be present on the production model. Another new feature added to the car is air signs – rear window surrounds in chrome. Also present are the air curtains – that is front intakes. These just don’t serve a decorative purpose, as the car makers say that the intakes improve aerodynamics. The exterior sports red orange body paint. The cabin features two high definition 12-inch screens. Customers would be surprised to see microphone and speakers in seats, meant for communication between the passengers.

The car runs on plug-in hybrid system. A front-mounted gasoline unit of 1.6-liter gives the power output of 218 bhp, while the torque output is 203 lb-ft. The rear-mounted electric motor produces a power of 95 bhp and a torque of 148 lb-ft. This motor features a lithium-ion battery pack which gives a range as much as 50 km. With a full recharge from regular household socket, the car can run for 3 and half hours.

The car thus has a 313 bhp combined output. It performs the 0 to 100 km.hr sprint in 4.5 seconds. Citroën Aircross concept consumes 1.7 liters per 100 km and the CO2 emissions are 39 gm/km.
