The Citroen C5 Aircross SUV Is Built For Comfort

Citroen C5 Aircross (6)

The Citroen C5 Aircross SUV was first unveiled at the Shanghai auto show last year for the Chinese market. The thing is, the European market will get one as well and it will be fitted with what Citroen is calling the “progressive hydraulic cushions.”

This means that the Aircross will come with a pair of hydraulic stops on either side of the regular shock, spring, and mechanical stop setup. This will help with the compression and decompression, providing a comfort never before experienced in SUVs trying to be sportier rather than comfortable for its passengers.

You see, that’s the problem with many SUVs in the market these days. The segment has forgotten that it should provide comfort for its passengers rather than make itself look sporty and ready for the race track. Owning an SUV is more than just about going off-track. It’s about comfortable city driving.

The patented suspension setup will mean there’s “zero bouncing” from “major impacts” on the road, Citroen said. For additional comfort, you can also opt for the advanced comfort upholstery. This means 155mm-thick foam and loads of reinforcement. There’s also an 8-inch central tablet with voice recognition controls, connectivity buttons, wireless smartphone charging, and a connected camera.

There’s safety tech, too, aside from the level of comfort this SUV provides. The C5 Aircross will come with safety braking, departure warning, lane-keeping, adaptive cruise control, collision and coffee alerts, driver attention alerts and even traffic sign recognition.

As for the drivetrain, the C5 Aircross will have two petrols available: a 128bhp and a 177 bhp 1.6-liter four-pot. There are three diesel choices: two 128bhp and one 177bhp. There are reports that there will also be a plug-in hybrid drivetrain, but there’s no word yet on when that will be. Apparently, it will be able to run 37 miles in pure EV mode and would feature disruptive CO2 emissions.
