CITROËN reveals C5 Aircross: THE new-generation SUV

The all-new C5 Aircross SUV is scheduled to launch in China this October, followed by Europe in the second half of 2018. The SUV trend has swept the world and now accounts for almost one quarter of global vehicle sales. To help target a range of international markets, New C5 Aircross marks a new stage in the brand's product strategy.

Representing a significant step in the development of the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, New C5 Aircross is the first vehicle to be equipped with a new suspension system with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions™. This system delivers improved damping for exceptional ride comfort that is synonymous with Citroën.

Citroën is paving the way with a new generation of SUVs with more personality and ease of use for everyone on-board. New C5 Aircross stands apart with its unique, dynamic and confident appearance, inside and out. The high bonnet line, 2.73m wheelbase, short overhangs, flowing organic lines and strong graphic features, convey a bold and comforting identity. The brand is once again demonstrating its capacity to make a statement about its unique identity and its ability to renew established codes in any segment.

Inside, welcoming seats, a wide and tall central console, and soft and warm materials enhance the feeling of protection and comfort. Taking advantage of the EMP2 platform, this new car offers intelligent architecture and enhanced well-being on-board. The available space is open and full of light, thanks to the panoramic sunroof. There are front heated seats with massage functions and welcoming rear seats with extra leg room. The atmosphere inside the car is even purified thanks to air quality treatment.

Equipped with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8-inch HD touchscreen, New C5 Aircross also features a wireless inductive charging function for smartphones as well as an array of cutting-edge driving aids, 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.

"The New C5 Aircross is the symbol of a brand with strong momentum, in touch with the expectations of customers in regions all over the world. It is the first practical illustration of our offensive on the SUV market, illustrating our ability to approach it in our own way, with greater emphasis on character, comfort and on-board well-being. New C5 Aircross will clearly be a major growth driver for Citroën." Linda Jackson, Citroën CEO.
