Citroen has revealed a facelifted version of its C5 Aircross SUV, which is expected to go on sale later this year.
The updated model features a redesigned front end with a sharper, more aggressive look than before.
There’s also a new interior layout that welcomes a larger infotainment screen and new seats.
“C5 Aircross, recognised since its launch as the most comfortable and flexible SUV in its category, has now been given a makeover to assert a more prestigious, modern and dynamic personality.
“While building on its strengths of comfort, on-board spaciousness and modularity, it has matured to become more elegant and dynamic with sharper exterior styling and more modern, high-quality colours and materials for the interior,” said Pierre-Yves Couineau, C5 Aircross project manager.
New LED headlights integrate with the front grille, while a deeper bumper helps to rid the C5 Aircross of its soft, curvy appearance and take on a sportier demeanour.
The car’s soft and comfort-focused ride is likely to remain, however. Citroen has not detailed any specific chassis changes to support the C5 Aircross’s new look, but it has stated that the car will continue to be fitted with Progressive Comfort Cushions suspension.
A new 10-inch touchscreen is mounted at the top of the dashboard in a ‘floating’ fashion. It incorporates the climate controls and adopts a higher reading that allows drivers to keep their eyes on the road. The air vents are now located below the screen and have been modernised with a new sharp, horizontal design.
Citroen has not outlined the powertrains, pricing or specification for the C5 Aircross facelift yet, but it has confirmed that there will be petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid versions available.
