A leading insulation

Acoustic insulation is excellent, with laminated double glazing front windows including an insulation layer to reduce road noise and wind noise. Passengers enjoy a cocoon-like experience. Particular emphasis was also placed on insulating the engine block.

At the same time, the new C5 Aircross offers a cabin air quality function, the Air Quality System or AQS. The automatic air conditioning is fitted with an active carbon filter of advanced efficiency, filtering out external particles as small as 2.5μm in size. The system effectively purifies the air in order to protect the passengers from outside pollution. Using a sensor that detects the level of outside pollution, the AQS system automatically adjusts air circulation inside the cabin.

CitroŽn is always leading in the field of air quality, and will launch in 2018 on C5 Aircross the Clean Cabin technology, which will enable passengers to display the quality of the filtered air inside the cabin on the central screen.

A MORE RELAXED RIDE

With one of the longest wheelbases in its class (2,730 mm), the new C5 Aircross provides Best in Class space for passengers, especially rear passengers. At the front, the non-intrusive dashboard conveys a pleasant impression of space. Passengers are pampered at the rear with generous knee room (201 mm) and head room (954 mm), on a par with the best in class. The storage compartments are welcoming and ingenious, allowing passengers to find a place for all their everyday belongings with a wide, deep central console, with a huge cooled compartment under the central armrest. There are cup and teapot holders, either integrated in the central console for front passengers, or hidden in the rear central armrest for the rear passengers.

The tailgate is hands-free and electrical: the driver simply waves a foot under the rear bumper to open it. With its wide opening, its cubic shape and generous space of 482l, the boot meets the expectations of everyone, whether you are on a week-end trip, a family excursion, a shopping excursion to the mall, or for a sporty day out. The two level boot floor makes it possible to partition the space in order to store small items. It gives the opportunity to create a totally flat floor thanks to the Magic Handle accessible from the boot and useful to fold the rear seats (60:40) without any effort.

ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS: ON THE ROAD TO AUTONOMOUS DRIVING

To help drivers concentrate on driving and lighten their mental load, the C5 Aircross features the best available driving aids, useful and reassuring in everyday use, designed to prevent accidents and contribute to an easier driving experience. These aids constitute the first step on the road to autonomous vehicles.

- Speed Sign Recognition and Recommendation: recognises speed limits and displays this information on the instrument cluster. This speed limit can be entered easily as a setting for the cruise control/speed limiter function.

- Automatic Dimming Headlights: a function that automatically switches from high beam to low beam, and vice versa.

- Active Safety Brake: prevents collisions up to top speed, thanks to a camera at the top of the windscreen and a 24 GHz sensor in the front bumper, which identify and analyse obstacles. The system brakes the vehicle automatically if a potential collision situation is identified.

- Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop Function: senses the car in front, using a sensor in the front bumper, and automatically maintains the vehicle at the safe distance pre-selected by the driver. The system will bring the car to a stop if necessary, by applying the brakes and accelerator. The driver can select a speed between 30 kph and 180 kph, and enter settings for speed and the distance between vehicles as well as limiting acceleration when cornering.

- Active Lane Departure Warning System: using a camera at the top of the windscreen that identifies road marking, that permanently analyses the image and decodes the case. The system corrects the vehicle’s course by warning the driver as soon as it senses that the vehicle is about to change lanes without using the indicator. If the driver wishes to maintain the course of their vehicle, they can override the system by keeping a firm grip on the steering wheel.

- Active Blind Spot Monitoring System: warns the driver when a vehicle is present in the blind spot using an indicator in the exterior rear view mirror. If the active lane departure function is present, and the driver nevertheless starts to change lanes using the indicator, torque is applied to the steering wheel to dissuade the driver and prevent a collision.

- 360 Vision: provides an aerial view of the area around the vehicle using 180į cameras at the rear and front of the vehicle.

All these driving aids are displayed on a 12.3-inch high-tech configurable fully digital TFT instrument cluster facing the driver, with steering-wheel controls. Carrying over the modern, original design of the Aircross Concept, it has several modes, enabling the driver to select the information to be displayed: navigation, on-board computer, driving aids, dials or a personalised mode.

GRIP CONTROL AND HADC: STAYING IN CONTROL

The C5 Aircross delivers a relaxing and original experience for the driver and all the passengers, whatever the season and whatever the destination.

The C5 Aircross is equipped with the Grip Control system, which works with special 19-inch Mud & Snow tyres.

Designed to help the car move forward over difficult terrain, Grip Control delivers the benefits of intelligent traction in off-road mode. It uses an advanced anti-skid function built into the ESP computer, which manages the traction from the front drive wheels. It includes a number of modes for different types of terrain. The Grip Control provides access to five operating modes: standard, sand, off-road, snow and ESP OFF.

It also features Hill Assist Descent Control (HADC), a new function to help the driver to safely control and steer the vehicle on steep slopes. The system is able to maintain a low vehicle speed (3 kph), for greater control and safety.

A POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT SUV

Driven in China by latest generation petrol engines developing 165 bhp (350THP) and 200 bhp (380THP), with EAT6 e-shift automatic gearbox, C5 Aircross provides high level of driving comfort and pleasure, and an outstanding efficiency.

It will be the first CitroŽn vehicle to feature the Plug-In Hybrid PHEV e-AWD drivetrain, bringing then amazing dynamic performances. This hybrid drivetrain will comprise a 200 bhp combustion engine and two electric motors, one at the front and one at the rear, and will develop total output of 300 bhp. C5 Aircross becomes then the most powerful CitroŽn production car ever. Four modes of operation will be available: all-electric (with a range of up to 60 km), Hybrid for long distances without charging, Combined and 4X4. This innovative technology will make it possible to charge the battery during deceleration or via the combustion engine while driving.

As a new and crucial step in the growth strategy of CitroŽn, C5 Aircross claims an asserted and energetic character, an exceptional comfort, and cutting-edge technologies and drivetrains; a genuine invitation to travel.
