2021 Citroen C4 and E-C4
The new C4 is here and brings in what can be described as the French equivalent of retro-futurist design. This is especially interesting since Citroens of old were very advanced cars for their time and they also looked futuristic. Because of this, it may seem strange that we are talking about retro-futuristic aesthetics. That is until you look at some of their older models like the Citroen CX or SM. The C4 and now the e-C4 continue to be the backbone of Citroen’s lineup, but will quirky design and modern technology be enough to compete with the best?
Citroen C5 Aircross Hyrbid Concept Revealed In Paris
Citroën’s flagship presentation this year at the Paris Motor Show is the pre-production study for the brand’s first plug-in hybrid model.

The Citroen DS3 Crossback Shows Up In Paris Looking Like a Proper SUV
DS presented the new DS3 Crossback at the Paris Motor Show. The SUB-compact city SUV is the second SUV debut for the premium brand under the PSA Group and it took the path of competing with other small city crossovers. Without a direct premium competitor in its segment (save for the Audi Q2), the DS3 Crossback represent an interesting attempt by the French to excite buyers into this class. In essence, this car succeeded the DS3 small city car, but brings numerous novelties demonstrating DS ideology of creating exciting, different, and unique cars.
2019 Citroen DS 7 Crossback E-Tense 4x4
DS has been trying hard to give stiff competition to the German trio since its inception three years back. Despite having some quality vehicles like the DS3, DS4, and DS5, to name a few, the PSA Group marque has yet to announce itself as a serious threat to the rivals. In a valiant effort yet again, DS introduces the DS 7 Crossback E-Tense 4x4 – its first plug-in hybrid offering. Does this crossover have enough to stare down the German bullies?
2018 Citroen C3 Aircross
One look at the current automotive landscape is all you need to see the incredible popularity of the crossover and SUV bodystyle. Not only is the high-riding, off-roader-esque style widespread in the U.S, but it’s gaining steam overseas as well. Taking advantage of the upwards trend is French automaker Citroen, which is reinvigorating its C3 nameplate with a new, next-gen crossover dubbed the C3 Aircross. Packing loads of customization options, a host of modern interior technology, and a wide selection of efficient gas and diesel powerplants, the C3 hopes to bring Citroen that sweet jacked-up hatchback success in a variety of markets across the world (minus the States, of course).
Framed as a “people-minded” crossover “inspired by customer expectations,” the new C3 Aircross follows in the footsteps of the Citroen C3 Aircross Concept revealed in April at the Shanghai Auto Show, while also drawing inspiration from the C-Aircross concept that dropped at the Geneva Motor Show. Now, following an official debut at the Paris Motor Show, we have a ton of info on the new production-ready Citroen C3 Aircross. Read on for all the details.

2017 Citroen C5 Aircross
If you look at Citroen’s current lineup, you won’t see too many crossovers and SUV, which is rather unusual given the current industry trends. Granted, Citroen might be a bit late to the party, but it’s already on its way to offering a solid family of crossovers in the future. The C5 Aircross is one of them and comes only two years after the French firm unveiled the Aircross concept. Heavily based on the show car, the production model broke cover at the 2017 Shanghai Motor Show ahead of its Chinese market debut.
Faithful to the concept car design-wise, the C5 Aircross has very little in common with the sedan using the same badge. On top of being a new product for the brand, it also brings two important technologies to the market. For starters, it’s the first Citroen to use a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. Second, it introduces the newly developed suspension system with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions. It’s also a somewhat premium offering compared to its rivals, but you’ll find out more about how it stacks up against the competition in the review below.
