The competitively priced C3 Aircross, entering a competitive segment against eight rivals, omits certain expected comfort features such as a sunroof, wireless charging, ventilated seats, and six airbags.
The SUV has been built on the carmaker’s modular platform which also spawns the C3 hatchback, introduced in India last year. The C3 Aircross gets a unique 5+2 seating configuration, with the company claiming that the last row will offer adequate space for children or short adults over shorter distances. The SUV offers a 511-litre boot space with the third row folded flat.
The C3 Aircross enters a cut-throat segment and competes with eight other models. It is priced aggressively as it lacks some features that are considered essential feel-good features like a sunroof, wireless charging, ventilated seats and six airbags.
The base-spec You variant only comes with a 5-seat configuration which means it neither gets a sunroof nor the roof-mounted AC vents of the 7-seat variants. It also misses out on the 10.2-inch touchscreen, speakers, reverse camera, rear wiper, rear defogger and USB chargers. Interestingly, the base-spec model still comes with almost all the safety features from the top-spec Max trim which includes two airbags, ABS with EBD, ESC, Hill hold assist, TPMS and reverse parking sensors.
