Introduction

The all-new Citroen C5 Aircross replaces the C5 saloon and features ‘progressive hydraulic cushion’ suspension, along with petrol and plug-in hybrid powertrains.

The new suspension adds two hydraulic stops to each suspension unit – one for rebound and one for compression. This allows the springs and dampers to work together with the hydraulic compression or rebound stops, which gradually slow down the movement, thereby avoiding sudden jolts. According to Citroen, the new system gives the car a 'magic carpet effect’ with a ride that floats over bumps and dips in the road.

As well as all-new suspension, the C5 Aircross will be the most powerful Citroen SUV ever, with its four-cylinder petrol engines developing 155PS and 200PS. A plug-in hybrid PHEV version will also be available, with four-wheel drive and a 200PS petrol engine linked to a pair of electric motors to create 300PS. According to Citroen, the C5 Aircross PHEV is capable of covering 37 miles on electric power alone.

Inside the cabin mirrors the layout of the C4 Cactus, with lots of head and leg room for up to five adults. The windows are laminated and double glazed to help cut road and wind noise, while the automatic air conditioning system features an active carbon filter to prevent air pollution and harmful diesel particles from entering the cabin. 

The dashboard gets a range of connected tech, including a 3D navigation system and an eight-inch colour touchscreen, while the hands free and electrically operated tailgate provides access to the car's 482-litre boot. 

The C5 Aircross is packed with Citroen's latest active safety kit too, including speed sign recognition, automatic city breaking and adaptive cruise control that automatically brings the car to a halt from motorway speeds. All these driving aids are controlled via the 12.3-inch configurable fully-digital instrument cluster facing the driver.
