Citroen is celebrating 90,000 orders received for the new C3 Aircross with a special edition called the Rip Curl.
Available from €22,600 ($26,396) in France for the base model, and stretching to €26,650 ($31,126) for the top-of-the-line grade, it’s based on the Feel trim level, and benefits from extra kit.
The new C3 Aircross Rip Curl comes with a choice of four exterior colors and the optional White Color Pack on the headlight surrounds and side mirror casings, 17-inch alloys, and a ‘Rip Curl’ decal on the front doors.
Inside, the subcompact crossover features flecked grey fabric with white stitching, blue strip on the upper part of the seats reminiscent of the exterior Blue Color Pack and specific carpets and more.
The ‘more’ part includes 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with TomTom navigation, voice recognition and connected services, smartphone integration, Citroen Connect Box with SOS Pack, City Pack, Auto Pack, opening panoramic glass sunroof and Grip Control.
This gear is offered at no extra cost, and joins the already standard features equipping the Feel trim level, such as fog lamps with cornering function, heated side mirrors and air conditioning.
Customers get to choose between two petrol engines, a 110PS (108hp / 81kW) with a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic, and a 130PS (128hp / 95kW) unit that works together with a six-speed manual. There are also two diesels available, the 100PS (99hp / 74kW) with a six-speed manual and the 120PS (118hp / 88kW) mated to a six-speed automatic.
This is the fourth addition to the Rip Curl range that already includes the C4 Cactus, C4 Picasso and SpaceTourer.
