Citroën UK has opened its order books for the new-look C5 Aircross SUV.
With more than 260,000 sales since it was first launched in 2018, C5 Aircross has been commended for its on-board space, modularity and, above all, its comfort – which is unrivalled in the C-SUV segment. Orders for the new Citroën C5 Aircross open today (15 February, 2022), with prices starting at just £25,515 OTR.
New C5 Aircross is available in three trim levels, ‘Sense Plus’, ‘Shine’ and ‘C-Series Edition’. Petrol and Diesel 130hp engines are available across the range, paired with either a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic gearbox, ‘Shine’ and ‘C-Series Edition’ trims are also available with a Plug-in Hybrid powertrain that combines a 180hp petrol engine with an 80kW electric motor – offering drivers up to 34 all-electric miles (WLTP test cycle).
New C5 Aircross introduces an exterior design with a more vertical and modern front end, to reinforce the character of what is a safe and imposing vehicle. The revitalised front grille adds to the assertive new look, with the styling echoing the appearance of both New C4 and the forthcoming New C5 X. The work done to the front of the model also helps to improve aerodynamics, whilst the glossy or anodised detailing – in colours such as Glossy Black and Dark Chrome – demonstrate the model’s more upmarket positioning.
The updated model’s signature front end design features a new version of the iconic Citroën logo, now seemingly detached from the daytime running lights, as was seen on previous models. The chevrons appear in black lacquer in a chrome setting, which now stand out against the central grille.
All the attributes of a powerful SUV are maintained in the new design, with muscular side panels and ground clearance of 230mm, large 720mm wheels, 360° protection (Airbump® panels and wheel arches), as well as a commanding driving position.
To ensure this latest model remains the benchmark for comfort in its segment, C5 Aircross now comes with Citroën Advanced Comfort® suspension, new Citroën Advanced Comfort® seats and an interior with unparalleled cabin space. The Advanced Comfort Suspension system – which remains exclusive to Citroën – uses Progressive Hydraulic Cushions® to absorb bumps in the road – keeping passengers in absolute comfort.
The new Advanced Comfort seat design – which debuted on New C4 – features a core of high-density foam and an additional 15mm top layer of textured foam to ensure maximum comfort and support for the driver and passengers. New C5 Aircross also comes with a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display and a new 10-inch high-definition touchscreen that is positioned higher up on the dashboard to reduce stress by ensuring the driver keeps their eyes on the road.
