At the start of the 2017 Shanghai Motor show Citroen went live with the launch of a new Aircross series SUV.The 2018 Citroen C5 Aircross sits atop the Cactus in the range, offering lager size and a more imposing, but no less quirky, design and premium features.
As you may have guessed seeing this car making debut in China, Citroen C5 Aircross will be released first in the market in October. Europe and the rest of the world will have to wait till the second quarter of 2018 to get this bad boy.
True to its traditions and values as the maker of slightly crazy but amazingly comfortable cars, Citroen has given the new C5 Aircross the latest application of their Advance Comfort systems featuring a revolutionary new suspension system with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions. That is comfortable to read, let alone to ride. The SUV puts an emphasis on the interior, which plays a major part in making the Aricross one of the most comfortable cars out there, with its ‘people-minded’ design and features. You get a 2.73m wheelbase which means ample space, and you get gadgets like a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8-inch HD touchscreen.
Citroen C5 Aircross is also packed with safety gear, including Active Safety Brake, Active Lane Departure Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop Function. The car even features Grip Control and Hill Assist Descent Control to help you enjoy an off-road adventure in complete safety. New C5 Aircross will also be the first Citroën available with PHEV Plug-In Hybrid technology. So fair to say you are well-covered tech-wise. You just need to decide if you can live with that funky body with its 3D face and bumpy panels.
