The dashboard layout is similar to the C3 and features a 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system in the center offering wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

Under the hood, the Citroen C3 Aircross gets a Puretch 1.2L turbocharged petrol engine good for 108 hp and 190 Nm mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Thanks to its lower pricing, the C3 Aircross undercuts its entire segment rivals including the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder, MG Astor, Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Honda Elevate, Skoda Kushaq, and Volkswagen Taigun.
