Citroen has unveiled its new generation C5 Aircross SUV as a ‘people-minded’ SUV. This new model claims to benefit from the latest technologies that ensure easier driving and a modern approach to comfort including the new Citroen Advanced Comfort programme.
This is claimed to be a revolutionary new suspension system with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions, which aims to deliver a uniquely smooth and comfortable ride that is typically Citroen. New C5 Aircross will also be the first Citroen available with PHEV Plug-In Hybrid technology, developing 300bhp a combination of a 2.0-litre petrol engine and two electric motors. The car is scheduled to be launched in Europe early in 2018.
The new C5 Aircross stands apart with its unique appearance designed around a high bonnet line, a 2.73m long wheelbase and short overhangs. On the inside there is a wide and tall central console.
There are front heated seats with massage functions and rear seats with extra leg room. The atmosphere inside the car is purified using an air quality treatment system.
The car is equipped with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an eight-inch HD touchscreen. The new C5 Aircross also features a wireless inductive charging function for smartphones as well as an array of driving aids, including Active Safety Brake, Active Lane Departure Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop Function. The car also features Grip Control and Hill Assist Descent Control to help you enjoy an off-road adventure in safety.
Citroen claims that the acoustic insulation of the car is excellent, thanks to laminated double glazed windows. An insulation layer helps to reduce road and wind noise and there has been particular emphasis placed on the sound insulation in the engine compartment.
