Citroën UK has introduced a new ‘Rip Curl’ model to its New C3 Aircross range. Created in partnership with the iconic Australian surfing brand, New C3 Aircross Rip Curl is now the flagship model in the C3 Aircross line-up. Positioned above the existing ‘Shine Plus’ variants, this new version comes with enhanced exterior styling and a unique interior design. Pricing for the New C3 Aircross Rip Curl trim starts at £23,815 OTR. Order books are open now.
New C3 Aircross Rip Curl is the third collaboration between the Rip Curl brand and the C3 Aircross SUV range. This new 2022 ‘Rip Curl’ version is based on the existing ‘Shine Plus’ trim, with additional styling and interior upgrades.
On the outside, the new ‘Rip Curl’ model comes with 17-inch ‘ORIGAMI’ black alloy wheels, plus all-season tyres for added grip in the most challenging of driving conditions. New C3 Aircross Rip Curl also features an ‘Anodised Blue’ Colour Pack with blue skid plate inserts at the front and blue door mirrors. ’Rip Curl’ decals can be found around the exterior. Four body colours are available: Polar White (standard colour), Perla Nera Black, Platinum Grey and Cumulus Grey.
The blue colour theme of the exterior continues inside, with ‘Rip Curl’ sapphire blue leather-effect and cloth upholstery, and ‘Urban Blue Ambience’ within the cabin. The Citroën Advanced Comfort® seats, dashboard, centre console and air vent surrounds all feature blue splashes of colour. The blue floor mats are bespoke to ‘Rip Curl’ models.
Further enhancements include a panoramic sunroof with an electric sunblind, as well as a Sight & Sound Pack with an up-graded Hi-Fi, a colour head-up display and a colour matrix display binnacle.
New C3 Aircross Rip Curl can also be specified with Citroën’s advanced Grip Control® technology with Hill Descent Assist, for use on difficult to navigate surfaces such as mud or sand.
The new ‘Rip Curl’ trim is available with a choice of two petrol engines and one Diesel powertrain. Petrol models feature Citroën’s highly acclaimed 1.2-litre three-cylinder PureTech unit, with PureTech 110 versions featuring a 6-speed manual gearbox. PureTech 130 versions are specified with a smooth and efficient 6-speed EAT6 automatic transmission. The 1.5-litre BlueHDi 110 Diesel is available exclusively as a 6-speed manual.
