Citroen premiered a new-generation SUV at the 2017 Auto Shanghai. The C5 Aircross was inspired directly by the Aircross Concept that was unveiled in 2015. Citroen says that it combines assertive design with interior space for the well-being of everyone on-board.
It adds that it’s a ‘people-minded’ SUV, and this new model benefits from the latest technologies that ensure easier driving and a modern approach to comfort.
The French carmaker says that the new C5 Aircross represents an important milestone in the development of the Citroen Advanced Comfort programme. It boasts that this is the world premiere of a revolutionary new suspension system with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions, which delivers a uniquely smooth and comfortable ride that is typically Citroen.
The New C5 Aircross is scheduled to launch in China in the second half of this year and in Europe in the second half of 2018.
The SUV trend has swept the world and now accounts for almost one quarter of global vehicle sales. To help target a range of international markets, the new C5 Aircross marks a new stage in the brand’s product strategy.
Representing a significant step in the development of the Citroen Advanced Comfort programme, the new C5 Aircross is the first vehicle to be equipped with a new suspension system with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions. Citroen says that the system delivers improved damping for exceptional ride comfort that is synonymous with their brand.
Citroen claims that it is paving the way with a new generation of SUVs that offer more personality and ease of use for everyone on-board. The new C5 Aircross stands apart with its unique, dynamic and confident appearance, inside and out. The high bonnet line, 2.73m wheelbase, short overhangs, flowing organic lines and strong graphic features, convey a bold and comforting identity.
Citroen adds that as a brand, it is once again demonstrating its capacity to make a statement about its unique identity and its ability to renew established codes in any segment.
