The New Citroen C5 Aircross Majors On Comfort, Style And Space

If you want a compact SUV with sporty handling, then you should check out the Mazda CX-5. However, if comfort is your first priority, then maybe you should check out the C5 Aircross, which Citroen claims is the comfiest model in its segment.

Launched in 2017 and based on PSA’s versatile EMP2 platform, shared with the Peugeot 3008 and 5008, DS7 Crossback and Opel/Vauxhall Grandland X, it brings the brand’s funky styling to the segment and looks like a bigger C3 Aircross.

Inside, it’s quite spacious and refined, and has the ability to haul three adults in relatively good comfort on the sliding and reclining back seat. At the front, it doesn’t feel as special as its cousins from Peugeot, but it does boast lots of storage spaces, an infotainment system that’s generally okay and digital instrument cluster which is not as customizable as the one offered by the VW Group in its rivaling cars.

In the UK, it’s offered with two petrol engines, the PureTech 130 and PureTech 180, with a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox, respectively, and two diesels, the BlueHDi 130 and BlueHDi 180. The former comes paired with either the stick shift or the auto ‘box, whereas the latter is offered exclusively with the automatic transmission. Joining the family next year will be the PHEV model.

The C5 Aircross is priced between £23,225 and £32,725 ($30,089-$42,397/€26,968-€38,000), depending on the engine and trim level, but should you go for it? CarGurus spent some time driving one equipped with range-topping diesel, and here’s what they had to say about it.

      The thing is many reviewers will knock French cars, because its the thing to do, its all the same thing about ergonomics and reliability. But french cars are very reliable and epic. Jurno’s are paid by mainstream companies to be positive about their cars, and since the others being french manufacturers dont do that they are open to getting stick.

      Dont believe jurno’s test drive the car, go onto forums find out the pros and cons and then make your own informed decision. I used to have that mind set many years ago about french cars until my family got them and i got into them and seen how great they actually are, and yes despite their depreciation.
