New Citroen C5 Aircross

C5 Aircross has been recognised since its launch as the most comfortable and flexible SUV in its category and has now been given a makeover to assert a more prestigious, modern and dynamic personality.

It’s all-change for Citroën in 2022 with the unveil of the new C5 Aircross SUV featuring the company’s latest interpretation of the signature logo on the revised front end. The C5 Aircross (from R549 000 for the current model in South Africa) has gained popularity with more than 260 000 units having been sold since it was first launched in 2018.

New C5 Aircross features a distinctive posture and has a high, horizontal bonnet, as well as the chrome ‘C’ side signature. Ground clearance is 230 mm and it sits on 18-inch diamond cut Pulsar wheels, with 310° protection including Airbump panels and wheel arch extensions.

“C5 Aircross has been recognised since its launch as the most comfortable and flexible SUV in its category and has now been given a makeover to assert a more prestigious, modern and dynamic personality,” says Pierre-Yves Couineau, New C5 Aircross Project Manager.

“While building on its strengths of comfort, on-board spaciousness and modularity, it has matured to become more elegant and dynamic, with sharper exterior styling and more modern high-quality colours, and materials for the interior.”

It gets a new 10-inch touchscreen in the passenger compartment that improves ergonomics by offering direct-access to climate control functions and is positioned higher on the dashboard. 

In addition, the fully customisable 12,3-inch digital driver’s display provides all essential and customisable information directly in the driver’s eye-line: navigation maps, information on active driver-assistance systems, information on the operating status of the hybrid drivetrain – all ensuring that the driver’s eyes stay on the road for completely safe driving.

Comfort is emphasised with the Progressive Hydraulic Cushions suspension that is exclusive to Citroën, and which allows for the absorption of bumps in the road, keeping passengers in absolute comfort. 

New C5 Aircross offers a wide range of latest-generation technologies to improve occupant comfort and safety, with a benchmark total of 19 driver-assistance systems, including Highway Driver Assist, which is a Level 2 autonomous driving system, combining Adaptive Cruise Control with a Stop & Go function, and the Active Lane Departure Warning system.

New C5 Aircross offers three individually sliding, reclining and folding rear seats, allowing drivers to enjoy MPV-level modularity in an appealing SUV design. The boot volume is benchmark for the segment too: from 580-litres to 720-litre for petrol and Diesel versions, and from 460-litres to 600-litres for Plug-in Hybrid versions.

South African launch plans have yet to be announced.

Citroen C4 Cactus Video Review - Carshop Drive 6
With the new Citroen C4 Cactus you either sit firmly in the ‘love it’ or ‘hate it’ camp. Without exception, no one is seems ambivalent to the Cactus’s quirky exterior, as we experienced when filming our video review. With stiff competition from the likes of Nissan's equally quirky Juke, does the C4 Cactus manage enough to stand out from the Crossover crowd?

New Citroen C1 Review - Airscape
Sure the new C1 is bigger, has a fantastic engine, is frugal and more fun to drive and highly specced, but to many the original C1s attraction was its price point and in that regard, as good as the new Citroen C1 is, it’s asking a lot in a very competitive, brand loyal, small car market.
