The new Citroen C5 Aicross family-sized SUV opens for ordering on Monday 3 December, ahead of deliveries beginning in early February 2019. The firm has now revealed pricing for its new range-topper, which starts from £23,225.
The five-seat SUV will be offered in Feel, Flair and Flair Plus trims. All will have best-in-class boot space, says Citroen: a sliding rear seat varies it between 580 litres and 720 litres. Fold the rear seats and 1,630 litres is opened up.
All are likely to prove very comfortable to ride in as well, as Citroen’s unique suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions features on all. Flair and Flair Plus versions of the 2019 World Car Awards contender add armchair-like Advanced Comfort Seats.
Even the base Feel is well equipped, featuring 17-inch alloys, dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors and touchscreen infortainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard. Safety equipment is impressive, with active safety braking, blind-spot warning and lane-departure warning.
Flair (priced from £25,325) adds 18-inch alloys, a reversing camera, TomTom sat nav, dark rear glass, voice recognition and Citroen’s ConnectedCAM built-in dashcam.
Flair Plus (priced from £27,725) includes 19-inch alloys, active cruise control, an opening panoramic roof and wireless smartphone charging.
