The first among Citroen crossovers, seven-seater and very impressive in size, the Citroen C-Crosser is a combination of the technologies of the popular Mitsubishi Outlander XL, PSA engines and French corporate design. The presentation of the model took place in 2007 in Geneva, at a traditional auto show. Like most crossovers with a modular layout, the Citroen C-Crosser allows you to change the configuration of the cabin. You can abandon seven places in favor of, say, more spaciousness and spaciousness. However, the Citroen C-Crosser is already quite roomy: 4.64 X 1.81 X 1.73. As fast as a sports car, as aggressive as an SUV, the stylish French Citroen C-Crosser immediately attracts attention on the road.
Citroen C-Crosser is equipped with engines of various sizes from the concern PSA. The basic turbodiesel engine – in volume of two and two liters, developing a capacity of 156 horsepower. At 100 km, this engine “eats” 7.3 liters of fuel (typical for a mixed cycle). As you can see, the Citroen C-Crosser is economical, which is why it has gained many sympathies. In urban areas, of course, more fuel is spent per 100 km, but not by much – about 12 liters. The basic equipment allows you to bring the engine speed to 4,000 rpm. For lovers of more powerful cars, the Citroen C-Crosser with a gasoline engine is available: 6,000 rpm, 170 liters. forces, with a volume of two and four (2.4) liters. Like all modern cars, the Citroen C-Crosser is deeply computerized, has a modern security system, and control with the help of an intelligent transmission shifting system makes it easy to switch speed in several driving modes. The recommended tires are Michelin, they provide excellent traction for this type of car and guarantee the high driving performance of the Citroen C-Crosser. Citroen C-Crosser tolerates road bumps relatively easily, although the suspension is not particularly soft.
The design appearance of the Citroen C-Crosser is designed to emphasize its reliability, strength and endurance, while preserving the typically French elegance of the contours. Branded chrome chevrons on the front, enveloping the grille; original, not quite the usual shape of the headlights; radiator grille imitating a honeycomb; a rounded, smooth shape of the wings – here it is, dynamic and strong, versatile and powerful Citroen C-Crosser. The salon is very comfortable, but with seven-seater configuration, the convenience of the third row suffers. Lovers of chic should pay attention to the type of decoration “Exclusive”. Citroen C-Crosser in this version appears as a status car with tinted windows, chrome moldings, aluminum roof rails and alloy wheels the color of diamond chips.
Multifunctionality and versatility. Citroen C-Crosser is a great car for those who need a universal car for high-speed driving on the autobahn, and for the “rough terrain” of Russian dirt roads. In general, at least in the city, at least in the country. Design. Stylish, elegant – a true representative of the Citroen family. Family design features are integral to this model, as are the noble lines of an aristocratic breed. Economical. In a crisis, this is especially important. From 7.3 to 12 liters of “diesel fuel” with a diesel engine per 100 km – this is a big plus for the car today. On the highway, as already mentioned, consumption is reduced to 8 liters per 100 km and below. Easy-to-operate Citroen C-Crosser is obedient and comfortable, the steering wheel practically does not vibrate, the brakes work smoothly and on time, the car stabilization system works perfectly. Citroen C-Crosser will appeal to calm travelers, and at the same time it will let you feel a slight adrenaline rush due to its almost sporty behavior on a high-speed autobahn and almost off-road behavior among bumps.
Universality. It seems we spelled it in the pros? Well, this is exactly the feature of the car that can be interpreted this way and that: the glass is half full, the glass is half empty. On the one hand, the versatility of this car – its indisputable advantage, and with that thought. On the other hand, combining some features of an SUV and a sports car, the Citroen C-Crosser is in the end inferior to both. Diesel fuel is, of course, good, but the diesel engine of this car is very selectively related to the quality of “solariums”. It is recommended that diesel fuel meeting Euro-4 or at least Euro-3 standards be poured into it at the gas station. Lack of adaptability to the Russian climate. Already at minus one degree Celsius, the diesel engine starts up with caution: “Where are you driving, master? It’s cold in the yard! ”, Which is made clear by the knocks and noises that appeared. Clearly not a leader in speed racing.
Citroen C-Crosser, of course, is quite a powerful and fast car, but what can I argue is not a high-speed car. Fans of fast driving and such turbo engines, so that the astronauts on Baikonur are “envious” – alas, the Citroen C-Crosser is not suitable. The traction and dynamic characteristics of it are not designed for Formula 1 races, but as a city car, the Citroen C-Crosser is quite fast and quite maneuverable, and on rough terrain it is strong, tough and unpretentious.
