competes with the Tucson, Tiguan, and Compass
The facelifted Citroen C5 Aircross resembles the Tucson.
The front fascia is where the C5 Aircross facelift’s visual alterations are most noticeable. The single-piece headlamps that split at the edges provide a neater appearance than the layered split headlamps on the model before the facelift. The twin Chevron insignia in the centre of the grille is now matched by two sets of LED Daytime Running Lamps on the wraparound headlights.
Additionally, the front bumper appears considerably cleaner. The central air intake has shrunk and no longer resembles a block. Additionally, the car has a new fake silver skid plate and deeper air intakes on each side, both of which are supposed to increase aerodynamics. The 18-inch alloy wheels appear new, but the side profile is largely the same. With the exception of new taillights, the back of the vehicle looks largely the same as the previous generation. They have a more darkened appearance and are now rectangular.
The new C5 Aircross comes in four different colours: Pearl White, Perla Nera Black, Cumulus Grey, and a brand-new shade dubbed Eclipse Blue.
Citroen C5 Aircross features and interior
The inside has also undergone numerous alterations. A 10-inch touchscreen that is independent from the dashboard has replaced the 8-inch touchscreen that was incorporated into the dashboard. The AC vents that were once horizontal units below and in the shape of cubes on either side of the infotainment screen have also been replaced. The infotainment system’s touch-based shortcut keys are still present, but they are now located underneath the vents for the air conditioner.
Another minor adjustment is the replacement of the gear lever in the centre console with a new toggle switch. On the centre console, a new rectangular button has taken the position of the circular dial that controlled the driving modes. The 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster now has new graphics and an improved user experience.
The second row of the C5 Aircross has three separate seats that can slide, recline, and fold away. Citroen claims that the additional 15 mm of padding makes the chairs more comfy. In addition, new black and grey leather and fabric upholstery in various colours has been added to the chairs, armrests, and centre console
The new C5 Aircross still has LED headlights, automatic wipers, dual-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, hands-free parking, hands-free tailgate opening, six airbags, electronic stability control, and traction control. Initially, the trunk can only carry 580 litres of the maximum 1,630 litres that it can hold.
Engine and gearbox of the Citroen C5 Aircross
The upgraded C5 Aircross still retains the same 2.0-liter diesel engine in India. Its maximum output is 177 horsepower, and its maximum torque is 400 Nm. Only the front wheels receive power from the torque converter automatic gearbox, which is linked with it. According to Citroen, a gallon of gas gets 17.5 kpl out of the C5 Aircross.
This 2.0-liter engine has already been removed off the market in other nations, where it has been replaced with 1.5-liter diesel, gasoline, or gasoline-hybrid engines. Citroen is gradually getting rid of diesel engines throughout the world. India, on the other hand, continues to use the C5 Aircross’s smooth and potent 2.0-liter diesel engine, which complements the vehicle’s emphasis on comfort and casual elegance.
Rivals’ reactions to the Citroen C5 Aircross’ facelift
The Jeep Compass, Hyundai Tucson, and Volkswagen Tiguan are the C5 Aircross facelift’s main rivals in India. The Tucson and Compass come with gasoline and diesel engines, whereas the Tiguan only has a gasoline engine.
