Citroen C5 Aircross Hybrid Overview
With the ability to drive on electric power alone for up to 31-miles, the all-new C5 Aircross SUV Hybrid has the potential to slash your running costs. And thanks to its efficient turbocharged PureTech petrol engine, you won’t experience an ounce of the range anxiety associated with electric. It’s powerful too - the petrol engine and electric motor combine to kick out 222bhp and 236 lb-ft of torque, with power sent to the front wheels through a slick eight-speed automatic transmission. Charging takes less than two hours at a 7.4kW wall box and the combined fuel economy is 166mpg. In reality, so long as you have charge, you won’t use a sip of petrol around the city. That’s progress for you.
You see it, you want it. The C5 Aircross Hybrid stands out with its subtle anodised blue headlights, blue exterior trim, roof bars and sporty stance. Inside, premium materials and a beautiful infotainment system bring class to every journey.
You can drive in full EV mode at speeds of up to 84mph for up to 31-miles or operate in Hybrid mode to make efficient use of the petrol engine and electric motor. The drivetrain is fast, smooth and responsive. A winning combination.
The rear seat bench slides forwards and backwards so you can prioritise passenger or luggage space. The boot has a maximum load volume of 600-litres with the rear seats up, or you can fold them down 60-40 to suit your cargo.
Living with it
