2020 Citroen C5 Aircross Review; Specs, Price, Dimesnions – Citroën sets on its new flagship C5 Aircross for Europe on versatility and practicality. Sportiness is not part of the profile of the compact SUV.

Citroën is rebuilding its SUV brand. After the C3 Aircross 2017 follows now the 2020 Citroen C5 Aircross It should be an especially in comfort and versatility designed alternative in the compact class. There is no lack of self-confidence Citroën. For example, those responsible for development, design, and marketing are talking about a car that – despite its proximity to the PSA sister companies Peugeot 3008 and Opel Grandland X – is “unique in the SUV segment”.

The reason for this, for example, is the high degree of suitability for everyday use prioritized in the design of the 2020 Citroen C5 Aircross. The car, which is offered at an entry price of 23,290 euros, in fact. Not only that, the boot with 580 liters is generally designed very generous: Due to the variably designed second row of seats, the loading compartment can be adapted to the respective needs. The three individual seats installed here – all the same width and padded as the front thick – can be moved separately in length by 15 centimeters and sunk in the double bottom of the trunk.

In addition, the backrests are adjustable in five positions. Thus, the space for luggage even with full occupancy of all seats up to 720 liters under the load compartment cover. If the stalls dive completely, 1,630 liters are available for transporting goods at full load. Since the rear opening measures just over a meter in width and a loading length of up to 1.90 meters is possible, even bulky items are relatively easy to stow.

In practice, the variety of storage options also convinces. The compartments in the doors are generously sized. The box under the center armrest can be cooled and take a 1.5-liter bottle.

2020 Citroen C5 Aircross Interior

In order to customize the interior, which offers ample space for all occupants, Citroën offers four different equipment. They range from simple-puristic to two in subtle tones combined color variations to very high quality. Owners of a C5 Aircross can also decide between different graphic designs on the 12.3-inch TFT screen of the instrument cluster.

However, they are all a little getting used to. It sometimes takes to understand the logic of presentation and operation. In the middle of the very wide dashboard is an eight-inch touchscreen that controls all vehicle parameters, media functions, the phone (“Apple Carplay” and “Android Auto”), air conditioning and navigation.

When steering and suspension show the C5 Aircross typical Citroën properties. Suspension and damping are designed for maximum comfort. This happens the SUV even worst routes or gravel sections sovereign. Impacts and bumps are hardly noticeable in the interior. The steering behavior could still be more precise. Fast driven curves are not really the strength of the car. Even with the sports button pressed, when the SUV noticeably tightens, the C5 is not sporty in approach.

So that the C5 Aircross can be as safe as possible on surfaces with low traction, the developers have installed “Grip Control”. The technology improves traction on the front wheels. The driver can choose between different modes (sand, mud, snow and “ESP off”). The operation is via a rotary control on the center console. Four-wheel will be available only with the plug-in hybrid.

2020 Citroen C5 Aircross Engine Specs

Citroën offers four engines that all meet the Euro 6d Temp standard. On the gasoline side are the “Pure Tech 130”, a 1.2-liter three-cylinder with 131 hp, and the “Pure Tech 180”, a 1.6-liter four-cylinder with 181 hp. While the entry-level engine is combined with a six-speed manual transmission, the power of the more powerful engine is transmitted to the front wheels as standard via a well-tuned eight-speed automatic transmission. The big petrol engine hangs well on the gas, runs quietly and is also strong in overtaking maneuvers. At speed, the specified standard consumption of 5.7 liters is exceeded by a good liter.

diesel drivers can choose between the “Blue HDi 130” (1.5 liters with 131 hp) and the Blue HDi 180 (2.0 liters with 177 hp). The latter proves to be powerful, smooth and economical in consumption. The standard value of 4.8 liters is missed only insignificantly with experienced 5.3 liters. For an SUV in this class a more than acceptable value.

Its SUV character carries the 2020 Citroen C5 Aircross also visually on display. The typical silhouette of a long wheelbase, short overhangs and so much ground clearance that it goes smoothly in light terrain. Striking in the drawn-out and strikingly drawn front are the two-part light (LED daytime running lights above, headlights separately below) and the large air intakes. The wheel arches radiate a touch of off-road character with plastic trim as well as the “Airbumps” on the side sills.

All this will be reflected in 2020 in the plug-in hybrid version of the C5 Aircross. The car with a system output of 225 hp should then be able to drive about 50 kilometers purely electric.
