If you’re in the market for an SUV, there’s a good chance that you like to sit quite far from the road. If so, you’ll find plenty to like about the C3 Aircross because, with its driver’s seat set to its lowest position, you’re a few centimetres farther from ground than you are in a Seat Arona or Kia Stonic.
Unfortunately, the driver’s seat doesn’t provide much in the way of lower back support, so the C3 Aircross isn’t very comfortable on longer journeys. Adjustable lumbar support would help, but it isn’t available. Meanwhile, only range-topping Flair models come with a front centre armrest.
It’s also really annoying that the only way to control the air conditioning is to use the infotainment touchscreen. Even just tweaking the interior temperature requires you to visit a specific menu and stab away at the screen repeatedly.
