The top Flair variants of the C3 Aircross will now be fitted with AEB (which Citroën calls Active Safety Brake with Forward Collision Warning). This uses the camera mounted at the top of the windscreen to detect obstacles, such as a stationary vehicle or a car moving in the same direction at a slower speed, and between speeds of 3mph to 52mph will brake automatically if there is a risk of collision.
Autonomous emergency braking remains an option on the rest of the C3 Aircross range, only available as part of a ‘Family Pack’ that costs £490.
The C3 Aircross, as we reviewed recently, had already earned a top, but the Active Safety Brake was a cost option on all models, including the Flair versions.
As a result of the system now being included in the standard equipment, insurance group ratings for the C3 Aircross Flair have been improved and now start from 4E.
Citroën offers the C3 Aircross Compact SUV with up to 12 driver assistance and safety systems, four connectivity technologies.
C3 Aircross Flair prices now start from £16,990 – £90 more than when the model launched in November 2017. This buys the 82hp petrol model, the car also available with 110hp and 130hp petrol engines and 100 and 120hp diesels.
