New Citroen C5 Aircross SUV (2022) Features, Design and interior. The Citroen C5 Aircross has received an extensive makeover in an attempt to move the SUV more upmarket
The front end of the Peugeot 3008 rival has been updated with a totally new face. Citroen says it has removed some of the curves in favour of more “structured” lines, and that the shape of the car’s nose is more upright, for a more imposing look.
The old car’s split headlights have been replaced by new units with updated daytime running lights, which are incorporated into a new front grille. The lower section of this has been redesigned to include larger vertical air intakes, and below it sits a freshly fitted skid plate.
Changes at the rear of the car are limited to updated tail-lights, with a new chequered look and darker lenses. Distinctive plastic cladding on the lower doors remains, but this is now available in a new range of colours.
Other tweaks include updated alloy wheel designs, plus a revised selection of paint finishes. A new colour, Eclipse Blue, is offered, but the overall choice is smaller.
Inside, the most obvious change is a fresh dashboard. The new infotainment uses the same 10-inch touchscreen system as the latest C4 and the new C5 X, with new horizontal vents above the switchgear.
The centre console has been revised too, with a new, smaller gear selector and drive mode select button. The storage area includes two USB ports and a wireless charging pad for smartphones.
New interior trim choices called “Advanced Comfort ambiences” are offered, with Alcantara and Nappa leather trim available on some elements. At the same time, the C5 Aircross’s Advanced Comfort seats have been updated. These use thicker foam to provide extra comfort, while heating and massage functions can be optioned, too.
Boot space remains at 580-720 litres for petrol and diesel versions, with the PHEV offering from 460 to 600 litres.
Citroen hasn’t issued any engine info, so it’s safe to assume that the existing 1.2 PureTech and 1.6 petrols will continue, as well as the 222bhp PHEV with a claimed electric-only range of up to 34 miles.
