C5 Aircross SUV is the latest model to feature a suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions®, a Citroën innovation driven by the company’s expertise in suspension systems. This specific technology is derived from the Brand’s experience in motorsport and provides better absorption of uneven surfaces with the aim of creating a "magic carpet ride" effect for its customers.
The broad and welcoming seats of C5 Aircross SUV bring passengers an all-new travelling experience with outstanding comfort. The addition of 15mm-thick foam makes them even softer and more durable. The front seats are filled with high-density foam to avoid poor posture after long periods of driving and are also height-adjustable and heated.
With its three full width, individual, sliding, incline-adjustable and folding rear seats, C5 Aircross is the most modular SUV in its segment. These seats are incline-adjustable with five positions and can slide forward and back, allowing you to optimise interior space or boot space, according to your needs. They also fold down to provide a flat floor for easy loading. New C5 Aircross SUV also boasts many storage compartments, including the central armrest.
Developed in a world exclusive by Citroën, Citroën C5 Aircross SUV offers unprecedented driving comfort via its suspension system. This innovation filters and absorbs major and minor surface unevenness to give occupants the feeling of flying smoothly over the road while ensuring outstanding poise and vitality. While conventional suspension systems comprise of a shock absorber, a spring and a mechanical stop, the Progressive Hydraulic Cushions® system adds two hydraulic stops on either side, one for rebound and the other for compression. In cases of major compression and rebound, they gradually slow down movement to avoid sudden jolts. In cases of slight compression and rebound, they absorb dips and bumps in the road to deliver a "magic carpet ride” effect.
Citroën C5 Aircross SUV has wide seats and backrests, inspired by the world of furniture design. The innovative design, combining high-density foam in the seat centre and a 15mm thick textured foam on the surface, ensures softness and support at all times. Citroën C5 Aircross SUV offers height-adjustable and heated front seats and height- and reach-adjustable front headrests.
With its three full width individual rear seats, C5 Aircross SUV stands apart in its segment. They provide the same level of comfort for the three passengers in row two. Adjustable over 150 mm, they can slide back and forth to transform the cabin or boot space according to your needs. They can be tilted to offer five different positions. The seats fold down to provide a perfectly flat floor thanks to the dual-level boot floor. Citroën C5 Aircross SUV also offers ample storage space, with its central armrest, its glove compartment, and its wide door pockets. It also boasts a large storage area at the front of the central console, equipped for wireless smartphone charging.
C5 Aircross SUV comes with a broad range of driver assistance systems, with 19 technologies for safety, on-board comfort and simplified driving regardless of exterior conditions.
This system represents a first step towards autonomous driving, as it allows the car to handle its own speed, trajectory and lane position functions. It combines adaptive cruise control with the Stop&Start function, enabling the car to stop and restart automatically based on the movement of the car in front of it.
It recognises speed limit signs and displays this information on the instrument panel. This speed can be selected as an instruction for the speed limiter/cruise control in one simple movement. In addition to speed limit signs, the system recognises certain road signs and transmits the information to the driver via the instrument panel (Stop signs / One-way signs / End of speed limit restriction).
It makes driving at night safer and more relaxing thanks to the automatic management of high- to low-beam headlights (and vice versa).
