Citroën reveals New C5 Aircross, an SUV with a unique character

Discover New Citroën C5 Aircross SUV!

Citroën's new flagship, the new-generation SUV inspired by customer expectations possesses a unique and assertive personality and features an all-new customisation offering with 30 exterior combinations. An ambassador of the Citroën Advanced Comfort® program, New C5 Aircross SUV is the most modular and the most comfortable model of its segment. Equipped with the suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions® and Advanced Comfort seats, it offers a new and typically Citroën travelling experience. It boasts unrivalled modularity with three individual sliding, folding and inclining rear seats and best-in-class boot capacity of 580 l to 720 l. Modern and high-tech, New C5 Aircross SUV is equipped with 20 driver assistance systems including Adaptive Cruise Control Stop and Start, and Grip Control with Hill Assist Descent, for adventures off the beaten track. It also comes with six connectivity technologies, including wireless smartphone charging. Produced in France at the Rennes-La Janais site, it will be launched in Europe starting in late 2018 (New Zealand launch TBC) and will be the first Citroën vehicle to come in a plug-in hybrid version at the end of 2019.


Boasting a strong personality, New C5 Aircross SUV stands apart through its singular, energetic and assertive attitude. Measuring 4.50m long, robust and muscular, powerful but free of arrogance, the new model stands out in the SUV segment with its flowing shapes punctuated with strong graphic touches such as the Airbump®, large wheels, ground clearance of 230mm and distinctive roof bars. The cabin instantly gives an impression of protection and spaciousness, with an emphatically horizontal dashboard and enveloping seats, a height position that gives the feeling of dominating the road, as well as a wide central console and warm materials. Like the latest Citroën models, C5 Aircross has a broad range of customisation features. Some 30 combinations are available outside, with seven body colours, a black two-tone roof offering and three Color Packs comprising coloured inserts on the front bumper, the Airbump® on the lower part of the front doors, and the roof bars. It also comes with five interior ambiances, whose matching colours and materials afford clarity and warmth in a trendy and premium “casual chic” style.



An ambassador of the Citroën Advanced Comfort® program, New C5 Aircross SUV stands out through its comfort and approach to interior space. It innovates with its typically Citroën overall comfort and two major innovations: Citroën’s suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions® and Advanced Comfort seats with their unrivalled ability to filter out road disturbances and offer matchless ride comfort, the result being an outstanding travelling experience for all passengers. New C5 Aircross SUV delivers unique modularity in the segment deriving from Citroën’s singular know-how in the world of MPVs, with three individual, sliding, folding and inclining rear seats and best-in-class boot volume of 580 l to 720 l.



In tune with its times and equipped with a 12.3″ TFT digital instrument cluster and 8″ capacitive touchscreen, New C5 Aircross SUV features 20 latest-generation driver assistance systems, including Highway Driver Assist, a level-two autonomous driving system, as well as six advanced connectivity technologies. The new, ultra-connected model is equipped with wireless smartphone charging, or the ConnectedCAM Citroën®. Powered by efficient and high-performance petrol and diesel engines ranging from 130 bhp to 180 bhp and the new EAT8 automatic gearbox, C5 Aircross will be the first Citroën to be available with plug-in hybrid (PHEV) technology in late 2019.

New SUV C5 Aircross, marketed at the end of 2018 in Europe (launch timing to be confirmed for New Zealand), will be produced in France, in the factory of Rennes – Janais.
