CITROËN REVEALS ITS NEW FLAGSHIP C5 AIRCROSS SUV
Citroën has revealed its flagship New C5 Aircross SUV as the brand continues its international SUV offensive. With its classical SUV-shape, large 720mm diameter wheels, its robust and muscular design and its raised ground clearance of 230mm. Its unique personality and strong style choices such as its Airbump® inspired lower door and wheel arch protectors and roof bars, make it 100% Citroën in its design and character. Citroën is attuned to its customers’ expectations: Inspired By You!
The new-generation SUV has a unique and assertive personality. The styling carries on the recent themes we’ve come to expect – split headlights squint from a widescreen grille and cartoonish lines abound. Black A-, B- and C- pillars are designed to create the effect of wraparound glazing and try to make the new C5 Aircross wider and sleeker.
New C5 Aircross SUV is the most comfortable model in its segment, thanks to the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, Progressive Hydraulic Cushions® suspension and Advanced Comfort seats. Hydraulic buffers at either end of the suspension setup have all but eliminated bounce from the car’s drive
New Citroën C5 Aircross SUV is designed to provide advanced soundproofing with reduced road noise and wind noise thanks to double-glazed laminated front windows with an insulated layer, bringing its occupants exceptional, cocoon-like soundproofing. Particular attention was paid to the soundproofing of the engine compartment.
New C5 Aircross SUV also boasts unrivalled modularity with three individual sliding, folding and reclining rear seats, and best-in-class boot space.
There’s space inside for five, with the variable boot size thanks to the three, individual sliding/reclining seats in the rear – it starts at 520 litres and expands to 720 litres.
With the seats folded down there’s a cavernous 1,630 litres of space to play with. Citroen says it has aimed for maximum practicality, building in cubby holes and stowage spaces around the cabin.
The modern and high-tech New C5 Aircross is equipped with driver assistance systems.
Citroen has included a whole raft of safety systems on the car, in order to make drivers and passengers feel as secure as possible.
Tech-lovers are well catered for, with a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel behind the steering wheel and an 8-inch touchscreen on the dashboard covering the infotainment functions.
Inspired by customers who do not want to sacrifice practicality and comfort, Citroën is actively moving into the C-SUV segment – an important growing segment of the market.
From today, Citroën is proud to offer a completely new experience in terms of in-car comfort and modularity in the mid-size C-SUV segment with New C5 Aircross. The changing needs of customers directly inspired this latest addition to the SUV range, further reiterating the importance of Citroën’s brand signature – “Inspired By You”.

Warm ambiances synonymous with well- being are dashboard straps, door handles, and choice of colours).
With its three full width individual rear seats, New C5 Aircross SUV stands apart in its segment. They provide the same level of comfort for the three passengers in row two. Adjustable over 150 mm, they can slide back and forth to transform the cabin or boot space according to your needs. They can be tilted to offer five different positions. The seats fold down to provide a perfectly flat floor thanks to the dual-level boot floor. New Citroën C5 Aircross SUV also offers ample storage space, with its central armrest, its glove compartment, and its wide door pockets.

The C5 Aircross interior features high level, uncluttered dashboard, with a horizontal layout. The raised centre consol between the seats provide a raised comfortable driving position.
PROGRESSIVE HYDRAULIC CUSHIONS
Developed in a world exclusive by Citroën, New Citroën C5 Aircross SUV offers unprecedented driving comfort via its suspension system. This innovation filters and absorbs major and minor surface unevenness to give occupants the feeling of flying smoothly over the road while ensuring outstanding poise and vitality. While conventional suspension systems comprise of a shock absorber, a spring and a mechanical stop, the Progressive Hydraulic Cushions® system adds two hydraulic stops on either side, one for rebound and the other for compression. In cases of major compression and rebound, they gradually slow down movement to avoid sudden jolts.
20 patents have been taken out on the Progressive Hydraulic Cushions system, which uses hydraulic tech to provide what Citroen describes as a ‘magic carpet ride’
