2019 Citroen C5 Aircross

2019 Citroen C5 Aircross

Citroen are claiming the brand new C5 Aircross SUV as being the most comfortable in its class.  Comfort, versatility and practicality are big C5 Aircross strong points.  Certainly the brand new Progressive Hydraulic Cushions in the suspension and the Advanced Comfort seats give occupants in the C5 Aircross an excellent ride experience.

Add to the comfort some space for both passengers and luggage, and you have yourself a special kind of five-seat SUV winner with that Citroen distinctiveness.  With the seats up there is a useful 580 litres to put your shopping bags and sports gear into.  Slide the rear seats forward and there can even be space for occupants and 720 litres of luggage.  Obviously folding the seats flat makes for cavernous carrying space.

The brand new Citroen C5 Aircross comes only as a very roomy five-seater SUV with three individual, adjustable rear seats.  These seats are all the same width and can be adjusted forward and back, which makes it possible to adapt the interior space or boot capacity very easily.  They recline and can even be easily folded to form a flat floor thanks to the two-level boot floor.  Leg and head room is fine for adults in the rear seat space.

This truly is a vehicle that would have you not minding at all if you missed out on the often preferred front seats.  That said, the front seats are exceptional.  These front seats are filled with a high-density foam to avoid poor posture after long periods of driving, and they can be adjusted vertically.  Even the headrests can be adjusted vertically and length ways.  The front seats also offer a multi-point massage system, so you really are in a lovely space.  The front occupants even have illuminated cupholders, a huge central bin under the armrests which is also lit, and a decent-size glovebox and door bins that swallow lots of clutter.  Added to that, the 2019 Citroën C5 Aircross SUV boasts a panoramic glazed sunroof, so there is loads of natural light flooding the cabin front and rear.

Now, the stylish new Citroën C5 Aircross SUV also boasts many storage compartments, including the central armrest, which covers a large cooled compartment for the chocolate stash.  So if you’re looking at something different with loads of style and versatility, then the C5 Aircross could well be the buy for you.

Citroen’s legendary ride comfort is brought up to the next level in this flagship model.  A wonderful new Citroën C5 Aircross SUV is fitted with the Progressive Hydraulic Cushions suspension system, which is a Citroën innovation driven by the company’s expertise in the suspension field.  The suspension in the new C5 Aircross especially improves shock absorption, in particular when going over bumps and dips in the road.  By reducing bouncing from recoil achieving a “magic carpet ride” effect.  Try one of these and be totally impressed.

Safety is always going to be important in any new car purchase.  Citroen understand this, and that’s why the C5 Aircross boasts a very strong safety cell where occupants are cocooned inside.  Many electronic safety assistance features are on-board as standard features.  These technologies represent the first steps toward autonomous driving and include: an Active Safety Brake, a Post-collision Safety Brake, a Blind Spot Monitoring System, an Active Lane Departure Warning system, Adaptive Cruise Control with a Stop and Go Function, Collision Risk Alert, a nice Coffee Break Alert, Driver Attention Alert, Speed Limit Recognition, Highway Driver Assist and even an Automatic High Beam Function.  Certainly, the C5 Aircross drives with plenty of solidity, and there are no nasty handling quirks even when pushed quickly.

Packed with all the latest infotainment kit, the 2019 Citroen C5 Aircross flagship will delight the techno savvy occupants with all this type of new technology.  A range of new intuitive systems that are at the cutting edge offer continuity between your own digital universe and your car.  The 8-inch touchscreen allows users to adjust the car’s settings, access the multimedia system, telephone, air conditioning, and navigation system, as well as: the Mirror Screen function, Citroën Navigation, Bluetooth + USB, wireless smartphone charging and ConnectedCAM Citroën.  Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, along with a range of colour and personalisation options inside and outside the car.

Head out on the road, and the 2019 Citroen C5 Aircross delivers a beautifully stable ride that’s both extremely comfortable and quiet.  Power comes from a range of petrol and diesel powerplants.  A choice of two turbo-petrol engines, and two turbo-diesels are likely to be what’s on offer in Australia.  The Puretech 130 and BlueHDi 130 both come as standard with a six-speed manual box, while Puretech and BlueHDi 180 models will get the brand new Citroen eight-speed automatic.  Drive for all versions will go to the front wheels for now, but future models will come equipped with an e-AWD system to arrive as a PSA plug-in hybrid.

So, purchase any one of these and you have yourself a lusty and efficient SUV that rides real smooth.  It’s likely the favourite engines will be the 1.6-litre turbo petrol making 134 kW, and the 130 kW 2.0-litre diesel.  Both of these models come with the eight-speed auto as standard, and are quiet and swift – both getting from 0-100 km/h in around 8.5 seconds.

Serving as Citroen’s new flagship model in Australia, the funky new C5 Aircross will compete in the medium SUV segment that is currently occupied by the Mazda CX-5, Nissan X-Trail, VW Tiguan, Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V, along with the related Peugeot 3008.  Though the new C5 Aircross shares a platform, engines and underlying infotainment system with the Peugeot 3008 they are two very different beasts.  Even if nothing else, buy a new Citroen C5 Aircross for the ride comfort!
