  • Updated infotainment system
  • Comfort-focussed interior
  • Plug-in hybrid available
  • Set to go on sale in the Spring

The new Citroen C5 Aircross has been revealed with updated styling and new technology on board.

This alternative to the Nissan Qashqai and Seat Ateca is set to go on sale in the Spring of 2022.

New Citroen C5 Aircross design

If there’s one thing that’s always set the Citroen C5 Aircross apart from other SUVs, it’s the styling. This new version doesn’t appear to be any different.

The front end has a bold new light design, with slim LED lamps connected by two full-width light bars and there’s a new front bumper. It’s not a million miles away from the current car in terms of styling, but it does enough to keep it looking fresh.

It’s a similar story at the rear, where the overall shape of the current C5 Aircross is retained. There are some new tail lights with a different LED signature and a revised rear bumper too.

New Citroen C5 interior and infotainment

The main attraction in the cabin of the new Citroen C5 Aircross is the updated 10-inch infotainment system. It’s mounted high up on the dashboard, just like in the Citroen C4. A 12.3-inch driver’s display is also available.

The new C5 Aircross will also have new Advanced Comfort seats. These are made of a special high-density foam to provide you with maximum support on longer journeys.

The overall interior design is typically Citroen. It’s pretty minimalist with only a few physical buttons for the climate control and some touch sensitive shortcuts keys for the infotainment system. There is also some funky-coloured stitching around to liven things up.

New Citroen C5 Aircross engines and driving

As with the current Citroen C5 Aircross, the new car is set up for comfort more than anything. It has hydraulic cushions in the suspension that absorb bumps in the road, along with a sound-deadening coating on the windows to keep wind noise out.

The new C5 Aircross will be available as a plug-in hybrid. Citroen claims it has around 35 miles of range from the onboard battery, and can be driven at up to 83 mph in electric mode.

Beyond this, it’s expected that the new Citroen C5 Aircross will be available with a similar range of petrol and diesel engines as the current car. This means a selection of 1.2-litre petrols and 1.5-litre diesel engines.

New Citroen C5 Aircross price and release date

You can expect to see the new Citroen C5 Aircross on sale by the Spring of 2022.

Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s a safe bet that it will be more expensive than the current car. Somewhere around £26,000 seems sensible.
