Citroën is unveiling New C5 Aircross SUV, an all-round SUV with large wheels, a robust and muscular design and high ground clearance. This stylish SUV is 100% Citroën in its personality with graphic features and a broad range of personalisation options. New C5 Aircross SUV is the most comfortable and versatile SUV in its segment with class leading boot space (from 580 to 720 litres, if seats up or lowered). As an ambassador of the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, it offers major innovations such as suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions®, Advanced Comfort seats and three independent, adjustable and easily removable rear seats.

New SUV C5 Aircross is fitted with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions ® suspension, a Citroën innovation driven by the company’s expertise in the suspension field. This technology, which arose from the Brand’s experience in auto racing, improves shock absorption, in particular on landing jumps, without causing any bouncing. It offers greater freedom in the car’s clearance, providing a “magic carpet ride” effect giving the impression that the car is gliding over the ground.
The wide and comfortable seats of New SUV C5 Aircross give passengers the feeling they are seated in an armchair in a portable living room. 15mm-thick foam ensures their softness and durability. The front seats are filled with high-density foam to avoid poor posture after long periods of driving, and can be adjusted vertically; the headrests can be adjusted vertically and longitudinally. The front seats also offer a multi-point massage system.
With its three individual, adjustable rear seats, New SUV C5 Aircross is the most modular vehicle in its segment. These seats are all the same width and can be adjusted forward and back, which makes it possible to adapt the cabin space or the boot. They are incline-adjustable with five positions, and can be easily removed to form a flat floor thanks to the two-level boot floor. New SUV C5 Aircross also boasts many storage compartments, including the central armrest, which covered a large cooled compartment.
