Citroën C5 Aircross

(2018 - present)

The Citroën C5 Aircross is a medium-sized SUV/Crossover. It was initially launched in China, with European sales starting in late 2018. It basically replaces the Citroen C5 Aircross and C5 estate models.

The C5 Aircross has received consistently good reviews from the UK media since it was launched. It currently holds an Expert Rating of 78%, which is quite high for this sector and puts it ahead of most of its rivals – although still behind its class-leading sister model, the Peugeot 3008. It’s also clearly the best score of the Citroën models we have collected ratings for over the last year.

The Citroën C5 Aircross has received particular praise for providing a very comfortable ride (at the expense of handling) and clever interior design. Its exterior styling is distinctive, which can be somewhat polarising.

Independent crash test and safety ratings from Euro NCAP

Overall rating: 4 stars
Date tested: April 2019









Note on safety rating
The Citroën C5 Aircross received a four-star rating from Euro NCAP in standard specification, which is sold in the UK with the name ‘Feel’. The more expensive ‘Flair’ and ‘Flair Plus’ trim levels come with additional safety assist technology as standard, which gives them a five-star rating. The Feel can be optioned with this extra kit for an additional cost, which would then give it a five-star safety rating.
