The jury for the European Car of the Year award has officially announced the seven finalists among the 37 cars eligible. The new Citroën C3 Aircross Compact SUV is one of the nominees in this prestigious competition. The Car of the Year 2018 will be revealed on 5 March at the Geneva International Motor Show.

The Car of the Year Organising Committee has awarded this honour every year since 1964. Sixty journalists from 23 European countries take part in the voting. The winner is selected on the basis of criteria including quality-price ratio, design, comfort, safety, technologies and environmental performance. 


The new Citroën C3 Aircross Compact SUV is one of the seven finalists for Car of the Year 2018. With unique lines and a strong, original character, New C3 Aircross has already received more than 25,000 orders in Europe since its launch in October. Customers are attracted by its cabin, which benefits from Citroën's unique know-how in terms of spaciousness, modularity and luminosity. Offering a high level of comfort and safety, it features 12 of the latest driving aid technologies and four connectivity technologies. It also earned five stars in the Euro NCAP test.

Citroën had 426,000 registrations in Europe in the first of half of 2017, a six-year record and an increase of 5.6%, compared with the same period in 2016. One year after New C3, the bestseller in the Citroën range with a total of over 200,000 sales since its launch, New Citroën C3 Aircross Compact SUV joins Citroën's brand renewal campaign and will help it continue its strong performance.

Following comparative tests of the seven finalists in February 2018, the model receiving the most votes will be named Car of the Year in this prestigious contest to be held on 5 March 2018, before the Geneva International Motor Show opens.

New Citroën C3 Aircross Compact SUV is on display at Michael Attard Ltd, Citroën showroom, Mdina Road, Attard.
