After rebuilding the smaller C3 Aircross last year, Citroen has prepared a restyling of the larger C5 Aircross for early 2022.
The C5 Aircross appeared in Europe in May 2018 (when it attracted attention with its reliance on progressive hydraulic limiters and Advanced Comfort seats), and given the ever-expanding range of competing SUVs, tweaking comes at the right time. Citroen has sold more than 260,000 units of this model so far.
The C5 Aircross will continue to be offered with a 1.2 PureTech petrol engine of 130hp, a 1.5 Blue HDI diesel with 130hp, as well as a Hybrid version with 225hp. Depending on the engine, a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission is available.
The pictures show that the C5 Aircross facelift primarily got a modified front end, with a new grille, different lights and a tweaked bumper.
We should also mention the new design of 18-inch alloy wheels, refined rear lights, mirrors in bright black, better materials, front seats with heating and massage, 10.0-inch infotainment system, richer equipment and a longer list of driver assistance systems.
In terms of dimensions, the C5 Aircross is 4500 mm long, 1969 mm wide, 1654 mm high, has a wheelbase of 2730 mm, its ground clearance is 230 mm, while the boot volume ranges from 580 to 1,630 liters.
Sales of the refurbished C5 Aircross in Europe will start in early summer.
