Citroen Basalt: Interiors

Citroen Basalt Interior

Despite its striking exterior, the spy shots reveal a rather basic interior layout. The overall design of the dashboard and seats is identical to the recently launched C3 Aircross model.

Changes on the new model include an all-black dashboard in place of the C3 Aircross’ black and white theme. The centre console between the driver and passenger seat is all new and now houses a central armrest with storage and rear AC vents. Despite its coupe-like roofline, the SUV offers a spacious second row with adequate knee room, under-thigh support and sufficient headroom for tall passengers. Additionally, the new SUV now features 3-point seatbelts for all passengers, which will improve the safety rating.

Excluding these changes, the Citroen Basalt gets a familiar cabin with a large 10-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, digital instrument cluster, reverse parking camera and more. We can also expect Citroen to provide the SUV with 6-airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP and more as standard at launch.
