2019 Citroen C5 Aircross – Redesign, Specs, Release Date
The 2019 Citroen C5 Aircross is closely related to the Peugeot 3008/5008, but the driving behavior is more like the experience you get on a flying carpet. Meet the latest pseudo-SUV of French descent.
The quad is now complete. After the Peugeot 3008/5008, the Opel Grand Land X and the DS 7 cross back now follows on the same basis the C5 Aircross. It is an overwashed SUV that makes its occupants especially pampered. Entirely in line with the brand’s image, the new flagship must offer Old French virtues in a new form. “The Aircross becomes the most comfortable model in its segment,” pledges project leader Jean-Philippe Lamy, who is behind the wheel with this first acquaintance. An ambitious goal, because the crowded SUV-middle class includes popular models like the posh Volvo XC40 and the VW Tiguan. “Our benchmark was the Hyundai Tucson,” said Lamy, who positions his cars under the luxury brands, between the practical rounders.
New Citroen C5 Aircross Interior
The C5 Aircross should not have a striking appearance, only the thick nose with two sides placed above each light units and the small third side window jumping in the eye. Also in the interior are crazy frills omitted. It makes a neat impression and the wide chairs with thick cushions enjoy as much as the spacious space offer. Three equally wide, sliding seats can be found In the rear compartment of the Aircross. There is still a pinch of MPV in this SUV. The large, flexible luggage compartment with a capacity of at least 580 liters also contributes to the practical ease of use. Disruptive is only the small white part of the windshield wiper and the cumbersome operation of the vending machine’s choice lever. They are only small imperfections because in other respects the Citroën scores very well.
2019 Citroen C5 Aircross Engine Specs
The most powerful gasoline engine and the alert Achttrapsautomaat fit perfectly with the relaxed character of the 2019 Citroen C5 Aircross, which wants to put the occupants in the cotton wool with its special chassis. The upper part of the struts is extra muted – by a small shock absorber placed in a larger specimen. The Fran Club offers by default the unwinding comfort of a flying carpet, which is a blessing compared to the more punished competition. The remaining engines (1.2-liter petrol engine with 130 hp and two diesel engines with 130 and 180 hp) are known from its sister models: a small diesel engine is an excellent option, because its 300 Nm makes driving smoothly possible, although the Citroën weighing About 1,500 pounds is not exactly light. Four-wheel drive does not belong to the possibilities, but there is a choice of four equipment levels.
Citroën wants to make it easy for us and the Great Aircross shows how: it is a comfortable SUV without sporting ambitions, which is spacious and quiet. This seems to be a hit in advance. But why does it have to last until January 2019 until C5 Aircross comes to us on the market?
