While it will be presented at the next Shanghai Motor Show in China, April 20,Citroën has unveiled the first images of its new fighter Aircross, fully designed in-house concept. The Aircross is thought to preview a successor to the Citroën C4 Aircross, a 4×4 model which was never officially sold in the UK.
This SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) prefigures voluntarily accentuated with the arrival lines on the market model sold in 2016.

That’s enough to sling it to 62mph in just 4.5 seconds, but Citroën also says that the Aircross will be capable of emitting just 39g/km of carbon dioxide, and consuming a gallon of unleaded every 166 miles.
