The 5 Aircross SUV is renewed, recognized since its launch as “the most comfortable and versatile SUV in its category, today it is equipped with a new style that gives it a more distinctive, modern and dynamic personality. Maintaining all its strong points, which are comfort, space on board and modularity, it expresses greater maturity and offers more character, thanks to the more structured exterior style and more modern and quality colors and interior materials “, as stated by Pierre-Yves Couineau, Project Manager.
I am more than 260,000 units sold Since its launch in 2018, the C5 Aircross SUV has always stood out in its highly competitive segment thanks to its space on board, its modularity and, above all, its unparalleled comfort. The feeling of being wrapped and protected inside a passenger compartment that filters the stresses coming from the outside sets it apart from the competition. Even today the car is a reference in terms of practicality and offers a more serene experience on board. This feeling is further enhanced in the plug-in hybrid version, which already represents a mix of over 30% in Europe.
The imposing SUV look: the SUV aesthetics
The new C5 Aircross SUV introduces a unprecedented language of forms: the roundness gives way to more geometric lines. The style of the front has a new, more vertical aspect, which reinforces its character. The car offers a new interpretation of the chevrons, which gradually become independent and separate from the daytime running lights, marking an evolution compared to the other models in the range in which the chevrons extended up to the lights via a chrome profile. Now the chevrons are black lacquered and highlighted with a chrome outline. They visually extend through a pattern that recalls the piano keys, chrome and black, ever closer to each other, which gradually merge into the LED optical groups. In this way the chevrons are more prominent in the center of the grille.
The “V” shaped LED light signature has a 3D effect through a decoration that recalls the keys of a piano. These daytime running lights give the car a deep, technological look. The logo and the V-shaped luminous signature are underlined in the lower part of the grille by a black lacquered surface with attention to the smallest details.
The color of the inserts on the side air intakes helps to enhance the elegant appearance of the vehicle thanks to glossy or anodized colors such as Gloss Black or Dark Chrome. Even the main air intake in the center becomes more dynamic and elegant thanks to its strong lines that recall the style of the central air intakes of the sisters C4 (road test) and C5 X.

The cockpit of the new Citroen C5 Aircross presents a more dynamic and refined look that enhances space and comfort.
