CITROËN New C5 Aircross SUV
Overview & Features
CITROEN has launched its all-new C5 Aircross SUV, a classically SUV-shaped vehicle with large wheels, robust and muscular design, raised ground clearance and 100% unique Citroen personality. Available in two model variants, Feel and Shine, the C5 Aircross features strong design elements which include; Airbumps®, large 19-inch alloy wheels, 230mm ground clearance, rocker panel and wheel arch protectors, roof bars, and unique colour packs. As the flagship of the Citroen Advanced Comfort® program, all-new C5 Aircross stands out as the most comfortable SUV in its segment thanks to two exclusive Citroen innovations: Suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions® and Advanced Comfort seats. Its three individual, sliding, reclining and folding rear seats make C5 Aircross the most modular SUV in its segment. Its boot capacity, varying from 580 to 720 liters, sets a new standard in the segment. Finally, with a high level of driver technologies and three connectivity technologies, it is truly a next-generation SUV.
New C5 Aircross SUV is fitted with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions ® suspension, a Citroen innovation driven by the company's expertise in the suspension field. This technology is derived from the Brand's experience in motorsport and provides better absorption of surface unevenness. The aim of this new suspension technology is to improve the filtering quality typical of Citroen and so dear to its customers, to create a true "magic carpet ride" effect.
The all-new Citroen C5 Aircross SUV will be fitted exclusively with the proven and flexible 1.6L THP turbocharged petrol engine and EAT6 six-speed automatic transmission. The four-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine displaces 1.6 litres and features an intercooled turbocharger, electronic multi-point direct fuel-injection and double overhead camshafts with variable inlet valve timing. Power output is 121 kilowatts at 6000rpm and torque output is 240 Newton metres at 1400rpm. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission co-developed with Aisin. Driving the front wheels, the transmission further leverages power via standard steering column-mounted paddle shifters and a 'SPORT' transmission mode.
At 4.50m long, it stands out for its powerful and dynamic personality, without being aggressive. It brings a breath of fresh air to the SUV segment with its wide and powerful front-end design, high and sculpted bonnet, flowing lines punctuated with strong graphic features such as the Airbump®, large 720mm diameter wheels, 230mm ground clearance, rocker panel and wheel arch protectors, and stylish, two-tone roof bars. Design details, such as the floating roof design and the "C" chrome-finished signature reflecting its interior space, contribute to a premium look. The rear of the vehicle, wide and tall, suggests a class-leading boot space (from 580 to 720 litres). The rear headlamps are fitted with four LED oblong modules on each side of the vehicle - providing for a unique Citroen lighting signature.
The cabin of New C5 Aircross SUV is spacious and stately. It incorporates generous and flowing shapes, while remaining attentive to functional aspects. It features a robust dashboard with a horizontal layout, a heat-sealed banner stretching across its width. On the driver side, the combine offers a configurable digital instrument cluster with a 12.3'-inch screen, which displays the selected driving information in the driver's field of vision. The wide and tall central console, the inviting seats set high to give you a feeling of control over the road, and the choice of colours and materials all add to the impression of protection and refinement given by the interior.
New C5 Aircross SUV is the newest addition to the Citroen range. Directly inspired by the Citroen Aircross concept revealed in 2015, the new C5 AIrcross continues Citroen's SUV offensive after the successful launch of C3 Aircross SUV in 2017. Citroen is attuned to its customers' expectations: Inspired By You!
