2017 Citroën C5 Aircross.jpg

Citroën C5 Aircross. 2017 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door SUV. F/F, 1199 cm³ (I3 DOHC), 1499 cm³ diesel, 1598, 1751 cm³ petrol (I4 DOHC). PSA launches another vehicle on the EMP2 platform, a sister car to the Peugeot 3008 (P84) and DS 7 Crossback, but more avant-garde. Chinese production initially, with French production commencing 2018. Airbumps on the side, panoramic roof, 12·3-inch digital dashboard with eight-inch touchscreen in centre console, interior design related to the Citroën C6 (2016–). Visually striking, even if the materials weren’t as nice to the touch. Automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control among features. Emphasis on comfort and luxury, with double-glazed windscreen, soundproofing, and front massaging seats with five modes, though rear less comfortable, which would not go down as well in China. Grip Control (traction management for the front wheels) for the front-drive Chinese cars. Turbocharged engines, but with emphasis on comfort, handling best described as conservative with torsion beam at rear, with light steering; excelled on ride, thanks to ‘Progressive Hydraulic Cushion’ (PHC) suspension (use of hydraulic dampers) on top models, which improved stability and minimized body roll.
