Chronology
Successor Citroën C4 Aircross

The Citroën C-Crosser is a compact SUV (J), launched in July 2007,[1] designed for the French manufacturer Citroën, and produced by Mitsubishi on the basis of the new Outlander. The equivalent Peugeot badge-engineered version is the 4007.

It was expected that the car would be named the C7, but in October 2006, it was announced that it would be called the C-Crosser. The C-Crosser took its name from the four-wheel drive concept car that Citroën first displayed in the 2001 Frankfurt Motor Show.[2][3]

Together, the 4007 and C-Crosser are the first Japanese-produced cars sold under any French brand. They had been planned to be assembled, for Europe, in the factory that was built in the 1960s to assemble DAFs, now Mitsubishi's Nedcar plant in Born, Netherlands,[4] but this was postponed indefinitely due to slow sales of the models.[5] Since 2011 they have been assembled at the Russian PSA Peugeot Citroen/Mitsubishi joint venture factory in Kaluga.[6]

In 2012, production of the C-Crosser ended, and it was replaced by the C4 Aircross.

Seating

The second and third row of seats can be folded away to provide a flat floor and an expanded load capacity for the boot.

The rear two seats can be completely hidden away under the floor, while the second row of seating, slides to offer greater leg room or boot space, features a 60:40 split/fold function that is operated via electric controls in the boot.

This allows for the car to be used for both sporting and also for transporting groups of up to 7 people, including the driver. This is similar to the seating arrangement in the current Citroën C4 Picasso which also offers the capability of seating seven persons.

Engines and transmissions

  • Diesel (PSA)
  • Petrol (not available in all markets)
    • 2.4 L 4B12 DOHC 16-valve MIVEC I4, 170 PS (125 kW; 168 bhp) (same engine as the Outlander)[7]

The C-Crosser’s integral transmission allows drivers to have a choice of three settings, dependent on road conditions and driving style: two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and a lock setting designed for low-grip conditions. Ensuring an optimum blend of comfort, road holding and off-road capability. All these transmissions are selectable using the control behind the gear lever.
