New Citroen C5 Aircross Arrives In Europe As The Comfiest Compact SUV

Citroen has revealed the European version of the C5 Aircross, its latest compact SUV that debuted at the Shanghai Auto Show last year.

The new Citroen C5 Aircross wants to stand out in a crowded segment, thanks to its comfort, spaciousness and modularity; customers will benefit from Citroen’s latest suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions as standard on all models, as well as the Advanced Comfort seats, features that debuted in the updated C4 Cactus.

The practical interior also features three individual, sliding, folding and inclining rear seats, as well as a best-in-class luggage space that ranges between 580lt to 720lt. Citroen will offer the new C5 Aircross in a total of 30 combinations, including seven body colors, a black two-tone roof option and three color packs that add a splash of color on the front bumper, the Airbump on the front doors and the roof bars.

The driver’s instrument panel features a 12.3-inch TFT digital display that offers three graphic styles while a perfectly integrated eight-inch infotainment system offers pretty much every connectivity option you could ask, including Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Mirrorlink.

Citroen wanted the C5 Aircross to be one of the most relaxing SUVs in its class and for that, they installed double-laminated front windows with an insulated layer and paid extra attention to the soundproofing of the engine compartment,

The new Citroen C5 Aircross comes with a wide range of active safety systems, featuring things like Active Safety Brake, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, Collision Risk Alert, Highway Driver Assist and more.

European customers will be offered two petrol versions (PureTech 130 S&S six-speed manual and PureTech 180 S&S eight-speed automatic) and three diesel options (BlueHDi 130 six-speed manual, BlueHDi 130 S&S eight-speed automatic and BlueHDi 180 S&S eight-speed automatic). Citroen said that the plug-in hybrid version will arrive in late 2019.

Sales of the new Citroen C5 Aircross in Europe are expected to begin at the end of the year, with Euro-spec models to be produced in France, at the Rennes-La Janais plant.

    These suv/cuv models could all be made in the same factory anymore… all look the lame, eerrrr, same.

    Btw, the red trim on this model is so NOT dope!

      Specsavers called…

    • Luke Mclucho

      you must confuse with vw productions
      on the contrary, it stands out from the competition like Peugeot 3008, PSA has really refreshed the segment

    • Six_Tymes

      You are most likely the type of person who complains that car/suv designs look all the same, yet when different comes along you also complain, and put it down, like you are now.

      I like the red trim.

  • Jason Panamera

    Really interesting interior. I’d pick it over VW or Skoda.

    • Six_Tymes

    What are the holes in the bottom of the doors?

    • uS’gedlemba

      those are airbumps, as with the C4 Cactus; basically shock absobers.

  • TheHake

    Damn. This looks REALLY nice!

  • Mark Hawthorne

    The best thing about the interior is that, once you’re in it, you can’t see the exterior. You have to drive avoiding all shop windows so you have no chance of seeing yourself in it.
