Citroen has just announced the pricing and line-up for its new C3 Aircross SUV, which goes on sale from November 6.

Prices start from €20,695 and there will be three trim levels: Touch, Feel and Flair. There is a good spread of petrol and diesel engines too.

In an era of individualisation, it sets something of a challenge with as many as 85 'personalisation combinations'.

It is also almost ritualistic now with these small and compact SUVs to claim best-in-class for something or other.

In the C3 Aircross's case the claim is for cabin space and good legroom at the rear in particular.

Oh, and they claim class-leading boot space too; the 410 litres can be extended to 520 litres if you slide the rear bench forward (an option on Flair trim).

Among the more interesting bits of technology is the enhanced traction system, called Grip Control with Hill Descent Assist (which I've lauded on Peugeots, especially in the past).

Of the engines powering the Aircross, the ones I feel that quite a few people will find fit them well are the 1.2-litre PureTech 82 and 110 petrols.
