The new Citroën C5 Aircross SUV will go on sale on 3rd December, at prices starting from £23,225.

First unveiled in Shanghai in 2017 and revealed in its European form in May, the C5 Aircross is intended to become Citroën’s flagship SUV.

The brand claims that it will be the most comfortable SUV in its segment, due to the inclusion of the Advanced Comfort programme, Progressive Hydraulic Cushion suspension and Advanced Comfort seat technologies.

The C5 Aircross will also be available with up to 20 different driver assistance systems, while also being pitched as the roomiest SUV in its market, with sliding rear seats and best-in-class boot space.

Petrol and diesel engine options will be available from the car’s launch, while future plans for the model include a plug-in hybrid variant. All are front-wheel drive, but Citroën’s Grip-Control system will be available for the car, adding traction on slippery surfaces.

   

Trim options for the C5 Aircross will be to Citroën’s familiar Feel, Flair and Flair Plus levels. The £23,225 buys a car with the 130hp petrol engine and a six-speed manual transmission – the cheapest diesel variant, also with 130hp, adds £1500 to the price.

Standard equipment on entry-level cars includes a ‘Safety Pack’ encompassing autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitoring and lane departure warning, and a direct connection to emergency assistance services.

Climate control is standard, as are parking sensors and 17-inch alloy wheels. In the cabin a 12-inch digital instrument panel and eight-inch touchscreen are standard, the latter accessing DAB radio and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

First showroom appearance of the C5 Aircross is expected in February 2019.
