Citroen AirCross First Photos Released

In what may very well be a premiere for French carmaker Citroen, the first photos showing the Citroen AirCross have been released via social networking website Twitter. The car, set to be launched in Brazil sometime in the second half of the year, is in fact a bulked-up C3 Picasso, with quite some appeal, we might add.

The AirCross is bigger than the model it is based on and rides on higher suspension. The additions to the model include new front grille, rear mounted spare tire, side skirts, wheel arch extensions, roof rails, faux aluminum trim and alloy wheels. Graphics wrap the car to set it even more apart from its regular peer.

Under the hood, the AirCross come packing a 1.6l 16 valves engine, with rumors pointing to the availability of the 2.0l flexfuel engine found on the C4 as well. The new model will be manufactured at Citroen's local facility.

According to some sources, the AirCross will be made available in several different configurations and stylings, to make the car as customizable as possible. From the equipment level standpoint, is to be expected the AirCross will build on the features of the existing C3 Picasso.

Additional details, as well as pricing for the new addition to the South American lineup are to be revealed closer to the market launch. Rumors also point to the French carmaker going for a presence at the 2010 Paris Auto Show later in the year to promote the AirCross.
