There’s space inside for five, with a variable boot size thanks to the three individual sliding/reclining seats in the rear – it starts at 570 litres and expands to 720 litres. With the seats folded down there’s a cavernous 1,630 litres of space to play with. Citroen says it has aimed for maximum practicality, building in cubby holes and stowage spaces around the cabin.
Citroen has included a whole raft of safety systems on the car, in order to make drivers and passengers feel as secure as possible. Automatic braking, advanced grip control, adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist are all available. Tech-lovers are well catered for, with a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel behind the steering wheel and an 8-inch touchscreen on the dashboard covering the infotainment functions.
There are five different interior options available on the new C5 Aircross: Standard ambiance is intended to offer a clean look in grey, Wild Grey ambiance ‘expresses more vitality’ with cloth and leather seats featuring an orange accent, Metropolitan Beige ambiance offers a darker take with some beige accents, while the Metropolitan Grey ambiance mixes things up a bit with more grey.
