Citroen C5 Aircross Updated With New Design, Features And More

Citroen, the French carmaker, has launched the updated C5 Aircross at an introductory price of Rs 36.67 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Now available only in the top-spec, fully-loaded Shine trim, the C5 host a bunch of design changes and get some additional equipment.

Starting with the design, the majority of the changes are mostly concentrated on its front end. The updated model does away with the layered split-headlamp, in favour of a single-piece unit, which looks much cleaner in our opinion. Not to mention, the wrap-around headlamps now come with a twin set of LED Daytime Running Lamps, neatly integrating with the updated grille.

Overall, the front bumper looks less busy so to speak, with the central air intake being narrower and cleaner. If you notice closely, there’s also a new faux silver skid plate at the bottom, right beneath the deep-set air that sits on either side.   

Speaking of sides, the C5 Aircross features a similar profile barring the new 18-inch alloy wheels. Meanwhile, the rear gets an updated set of tail laps with more rectangular lighting elements and darker finish than before.

Step inside and you’ll notice the 8.0-inch touchscreen unit has now been replaced by a larger, free-standing 10-inch unit. There’s also a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, which now comes with an updated interface and graphics.

The feature list here includes auto wipers, LED headlamps, powered seats, dual-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof, hands-free tailgate, hands-free parking and more. Safety is taken care of by six airbags, ESC and traction control. In case you want to pack for the weekend, the boot capacity of 580 litres can be expanded to 1,630 litres.

Under the hood, the C5 packs the same 2.0-litre diesel engine in India. This engine makes 177PS of power and 400Nm of torque, mated to an automatic eight-speed torque converter. The manufacturer claims a fuel efficiency of 17.5kmpl, although those figures remain subject to our tests.

In terms of competition, the C5 Aircross now competes against the Jeep Compass (which itself is due for an update), along with the newly launched Hyundai Tucson and the Volkswagen Tiguan.
