Citroen C5 Aircross PureTech 130 now available with automatic gearbox

Citroen is now offering an automatic gearbox with the PureTech 130 petrol engine in the C5 Aircross - with prices starting from £28,335.

The three-cylinder 130PS engine is the most popular engine in the C5 Aircross SUV, but buyers wanting a petrol automatic have previously had to opt for the more powerful PureTech 180. This has now been dropped as the manufacturer looks to reduce its average CO2 emissions.

The eight-speed EAT8 torque-converter automatic transmission is available to order now, with production starting in February and deliveries expected from March.

Combined with the PureTech 130 engine, the automatic gearbox is available in Flair and Flair+ trim, costing £28,335 and £30,535 respectively.

As part of the updates, the BlueHDi diesel engines have been rehomologated, resulting in marginally lower CO2 emissions. All BlueHDi 130 manual versions see a 3g/km decrease, from 108g/km to 105g/km, while the BlueHDi 130 EAT8 automatic see a reduction of 5/gkm, down to 100g/km from 105g/km.

Citroen C5 Aircross Hybrid priced from £35,340

The Citroen C5 Aircross plug-in hybrid is now available to order in the UK, with pricing starting from just £35,340 for the Flair trim level. First customer deliveries are expected to commence from mid-year 2020.

It combines a PureTech 180 Stop & Start petrol engine with an 80kW electric motor, and an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The combined petrol engine and electric motor produces 225PS along with CO2 of 32-33g/km and fuel efficiency of up to 168mpg on a combined cycle, (WLTP certified, dependent on version).

With three driving modes, the C5 Aircross SUV Hybrid offers drivers the opportunity to optimise the vehicle to their driving needs:

  • Electric – the car uses only the battery-powered electric motor, resulting in an ultra-quiet and smooth drive with zero exhaust emissions, offering a range of up to 34miles (WLTP certified).
  • Hybrid – the car chooses the best mix of electric and petrol propulsion to suit the driving style whilst optimising efficiency.
  • Sport – the car combines the power of electric and petrol motors to offer outstanding performance.

The C5 Aircross SUV Hybrid can be specified in two trim levels, Flair and Flair Plus, with standard equipment on both including: Citroen Connect Nav with 3 year subscription to TomTom Live Traffic, active blind spot monitoring, active lane keeping assist, active safety brake, front and rear parking sensors and a 180° colour reversing camera. In addition, Flair Plus models feature a half-leather interior, an electric driver’s seat, an electric hands-free tailgate, active cruise control and 19-inch ‘Art’ bi-tone alloy wheels.
