Citroen C5 Aircross unveiled in Shanghai

By CARSIFU | 21 April 2017


SHANGHAI: Representing a significant step in the Citroën Advanced Comfort programme, the new C5 Aircross unveiled at the 2017 Shanghai Motor Show, changes the rules of the segment, thanks to its comfort and inside space.

Taking advantage of the modular EMP2 platform, it delivers intelligence of architecture and well-being on board.

With its flowing and muscled bodylines, the new C5 Aircross imposes its natural difference: a unique stance, conveying energy and self-confidence.

The C5 Aircross stands apart for its unique, dynamic and confident stance, both outside and inside. Robust, muscular exterior lines avoid aggressiveness through a strong overall balance reflected in the high bonnet, 2.73m wheelbase, short overhang, and flowing organic lines with strong graphic features.

The C5 Aircross is also the first vehicle to be equipped with the new “Progressive Hydraulic Cushions” suspension, improving damping quality for an exceptional level of ride comfort, that is typically Citroën.

On board, it is a genuine invitation to travel for every passenger: the space is clear and full of light thanks to the opening panoramic sunroof, the front seats have heating and massage functions, the welcoming rear seats offer leading leg room, and the atmosphere is purified thanks to air quality treatment.

Equipped with a clear and understandable 12.3-inch TFT digital cluster and a capacitive 8-inch HD touchscreen, C5 Aircross features an array of cutting-edge driving aids, including Active Safety Brake, Active Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control with a Stop function.

While the Grip Control and Hill Assist Descent Control aim to tame the beaten path in complete safety, the C5 Aircross will also be the first Citroën available with PHEV plug-in hybrid technology.

The C5 Aircross will be launched in China in October this year with scheduled launches in Europe at the end of 2018.
