Citroen C4 Aircross 4x4 ReviewCitroën C4 Aircross Review

C4 AIRCROSS REVIEW: Most car reviews describe the C4 Aircross as bold and bemusing. The French car maker Citroen describe the C4 Aircross as 'intense and optimistic'. So why is the new concept car so outlandish?

The first launch of the C4 Aircross soft-roader ocurred in 2012 across Europe. But, you cannot deny the design of the French SUV preview will split opinions.

But, you are certain to admire the Aircross if you compare attributes in the C4 Cactus car review.

It measures around the same size as the Land Rover Discovery Sport or the bold and brash BMW X3.

Twin grilles and fierce squinting headlights seem to create an aggression rarely seen in Citroen SUV and 4x4 cars. But, extra stylish touches remove any hint of a boxy shape.

A closer inspection reveals the Mini-esque floating roof and silver-trimmed rear windows. Not to mention the lovable tiny wing mirror design feature.
