Advanced Comfort Seats- A layer of 15mm-thick foam makes the seats softer and more durable. The front seats are also filled with high-density foam to avoid poor posture after long periods of driving.
New Citroën C5 Aircross SUV has a roomy 580l boot, but this is just the beginning of the story. Move the rear seats to their furthest forward position and you’ve got up to 720l, giving you the most generous boot in its class. When rear seats are folded there’s an amazing 1630l, and thanks to a clever folding mechanism, the boot offers two perfectly flat floor heights. Accessing all this flexible space is effortless too, because there’s a hands-free tailgate, allowing you to open and close simply by moving your foot under the rear bumper.
An SUV needs to take varied and difficult surfaces in its stride. New Citroën C5 Aircross SUV provides secure traction in all conditions thanks to Grip Control.

It works in both forward and reverse gears as well as neutral.

Developed in a world exclusive by Citroën, New Citroën C5 Aircross SUV offers unprecedented driving comfort via its suspension system. This innovation filters and absorbs major and minor surface unevenness to give occupants the feeling of flying smoothly over the road while ensuring outstanding poise and vitality. While conventional suspension systems comprise of a shock absorber, a spring and a mechanical stop, the Progressive Hydraulic Cushions® system adds two hydraulic stops on either side, one for rebound and the other for compression. In cases of major compression and rebound, they gradually slow down movement to avoid sudden jolts. In cases of slight compression and rebound, they absorb dips and bumps in the road to deliver a "magic carpet ride” effect.
New Citroën C5 Aircross SUV is designed to provide advanced soundproofing with reduced road noise and wind noise thanks to double-laminated front windows with an insulated layer, bringing its occupants exceptional, cocoon-like soundproofing. Particular attention was paid to the soundproofing of the engine compartment.
For the optimal comfort of passengers, New Citroën C5 Aircross SUV also offers an air purification system in the cabin, AQS for “Air Quality System”, which detects exterior air pollution and filters it by automatically adjusting the mode of circulation in the cabin.
