Citroen has lifted pricing across its entire product portfolio by up to $3000 due to Australia’s weakening dollar, but equipment levels remain static.
Starting with the C3 light hatchback, the sole Shine variant is now $2000 pricier at $28,990 before on-road costs.
However, specification remains the same, which means an 81kW/205Nm 1.2-litre turbo-petrol three-cylinder engine, six-speed automatic transmission, 16-inch wheels, 7.0-inch multimedia screen with satellite navigation, cloth interior, keyless entry and start, and two-tone exterior paintwork.
Safety wise, the C3 scores autonomous emergency braking (AEB), blind-spot monitoring, speed sign recognition, reversing camera and rear parking sensors.
Similarly, the high-riding C3 Aircross, which is available in a single Shine grade and shares the same drivetrain as the C3 hatchback, moves up $2000 to $34,990.
Equipment bundled in for that price includes cloth interior, head-up display, 7.0-inch multimedia system, keyless entry, wireless smartphone charger, 17-inch wheels, and automatic headlights and wipers.
The C3 Aircross also mirrors the C3 for advanced safety gear, but adds front parking sensors, automatic high beams, lane departure warning and tyre pressure monitoring.
However, it is the C5 Aircross mid-size SUV that jumps up the most in Citroen’s range, with both the Feel and Shine grades now $3000 pricier than before at $42,990 and $46,990 respectively.
Both are powered by a 121kW/240Nm 1.6-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine that drives the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.
Standard equipment on the C5 Aircross includes 18-inch wheels, hydraulic cushion suspension, keyless entry and start, electric tailgate, orange interior stitching, 8.0-inch multimedia screen with satellite navigation, dual-zone climate control, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.
Stepping up to the top-spec Shine variant adds 19-inch wheels, electronic driver seat adjustment, leather interior trim and wireless smartphone charger.
