The interior of the C3 Aircross, though somewhat simple, adopts a minimalist aesthetic. It offers flexible seating configurations, available in both five- and seven-seat layouts. Enhancing comfort, the seats now feature Citroen Advanced Comfort technology, with an additional 10 to 15 mm of foam padding. The interior also includes a small digital instrument cluster, a compact two-spoke steering wheel, and a 10.25-inch infotainment system compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Additional interior features comprise air conditioning and a 15W wireless smartphone charging pad.

Safety is a key focus for the C3 Aircross, which is equipped with a variety of advanced safety systems. These include Active Safety Brake, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Alert, Speed Sign Recognition, High Beam Assistance, Blind Spot Detection, a rearview camera, and front and rear parking sensors. The vehicle also features Citroen's Advanced Comfort suspension system, which includes dual progressive hydraulic bump stops. These act as secondary shock absorbers to further enhance ride comfort.

The C3 Aircross lineup starts with an entry-level model powered by a 101 hp PureTech Turbo petrol engine that meets Euro7 standards and is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. For those seeking a more environmentally friendly option, there is a hybrid variant. This version combines a 1.2-liter PureTech three-cylinder engine producing 134 hp with a dual-clutch transmission integrated with a 28 hp electric motor, powered by a 48V lithium-ion battery located under the floor.

The most notable addition to the lineup is the electric variant, which features a 44 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery and a 111 hp electric motor. This configuration allows the crossover to reach a top speed of 145 km/h and offers a driving range exceeding 300 km. When recharging, a 100 kW DC fast charger can replenish the battery from 20% to 80% in just 26 minutes, while home AC charging achieves the same result in 2 hours 50 minutes to 4 hours 10 minutes.

Recognizing that the electric model may not appeal to all buyers, Citroen has announced the introduction of another variant set to debut in 2025. Although details are scarce, the company promises that this new version will offer a range exceeding 400 km.
