BLUE VELVET (new2) 15/03/2019

Citroen's C5 Aircross arguably makes most sense in BlueHDi 180 diesel form. Jonathan Crouch takes a drive.

Ten Second Review

In a C5 Aircross, according to Citroen, you'll be travelling 'Premier Class'. So what exactly, does that mean? Something significant surely, given that this car's main selling point is a unique 'Progressive Hydraulic Cushion' suspension system. This car also introduced dashcam technology to the mid-sized SUV segment. And provides a decent blend of economy and performance in the 2.0-litre BlueHDi 180 diesel form we're going to look at here.

Background

The legendary Citroen 2CV had a reputation for being able to comfortably traverse a ploughed field. That apart though, this French brand can't call on much customer recognition when it comes to vehicles cable of functioning off the beaten track. A decade or so back, there were two re-badged Mitsubishi models, the C-Crosser and a car we didn't get, the C4 Aircross. But that's been about it from Citroen when it comes to mid-sized contenders of this kind. This has to change of course, given the current European obsession with SUVs and the company is depending on its Aircross range of models to convince customers of its crossover credibility. Here, we're looking at the mid-sized C5 Aircross, tested in this case in BlueHDi 180 2.0-litre diesel form. As with other variants in the C5 Aircross range, this one's most unique selling point is a clever new suspension system but there's also lots else of note, as I found out throughout a week at the wheel.

Driving Experience

The 2.0-litre BlueHDi 180 diesel engine is one of the more powerful powerplants in the C5 Aircross range - the other is the 1.6-litre PureTech 180 petrol unit. Both powerplants only come with Citroen's smooth-shifting EAT8 8-speed auto transmission and get a a largely irrelevant 'Sport' button on the centre console that ramps up engine noise but not a lot else. Engine noise isn't something you really want to hear more of in a diesel, especially not from Citroen's 2.0-litre BlueHDi 180 unit, which is one of the brand's older engines. It's quite a lusty lump though, developing 400Nm, which is why this variant can offer easily the highest braked towing capacity in the range - 1,650kgs. And get from rest to 62mph in 8.6s - which is over 3 seconds quicker than a BlueHDi 130 auto model can manage. The top speed is 131mph. As with other C5 Aircross variants, ride quality here is embellished by a clever 'Progressive Hydraulic Cushions' suspension system which delivers class-leading comfort over poorer surfaces. Hydraulic dampers cushion the top and bottom of wheel travel at the top and bottom of wheel travel and allow the fitment of softer springs and dampers, producing what the brand describes as a 'magic carpet'-like feel.

Design and Build

Citroen's had to think carefully about the design positioning of this car to avoid trespassing on the territory of the four other PSA Group mid-sized SUVs that already campaign in various parts of this one's chosen segment. This C5 Aircross is a five-seat design but quite a large one, with a 4.5-metre length that makes it a fraction bigger than the Gallic conglomerate's two other five-seat contenders in this sector (the Peugeot 3008 and Vauxhall Grandland X) but a fraction smaller than PSA's seven-seat offerings in the class, Peugeot's 5008 and the DS 7 Crossback. Inside, as with most modern Citroens, what you find is a mixture of interesting design, a few cheaper plastics and some clever electronics. Oh and lovely seats, with the ones you're most likely to get being of the generously proportioned 'Advanced Comfort' variety, which feature particularly broad bases, foam that's 15mm thicker than usual for extra support and extra quilted padding. The result is a feeling of cosseting Gallic luxury. The instrument binnacle is another cabin talking point, conventional dials completely replaced by a standard 12.3-inch colour screen that's fully configurable and customisable. Just about everything else you'll need to know can be found on the 8-inch centre-dash capacitive touchscreen. In the back seat you'll get what Citroen claims is the 'most modular' rear bench arrangement in the class. It's certainly very versatile, made up of three individual sliding, folding and reclining seats. Out back, you get a large 580-litre boot.

Market and Model

The BlueHDi 180 version of this C5 Aircross comes only in mid-range 'Flair' or top 'Flair Plus' guises, and that means list prices starting at just over £30,000. Still, you get a lot of kit with these spec levels. 'Flair grade models are recognisable by '18-inch 'Swirl' alloy wheels, rear privacy glass and chrome-effect exhaust trim. There are some key extra interior features at this level, amongst them the more supportive 'Advanced Comfort' seats and the 'Citroen Connect Nav' sat nav system that comes with 'TomTom Live' traffic updates and voice recognition. Plus there are useful features like front parking sensors, a 180-degree 'Visio Park' colour reversing camera, an electrochrome rear view mirror, a two-tone horn and 'follow-me-home' lighting that at night guides you to your front door. The cabin gets a classy upgrade too, the 'Metropolitan Grey Ambiance' package you get at this level giving you upholstery trimmed in a mixture of Grey Grained leather and 'Graphite' cloth. At 'Flair' level, you also get as standard what is probably this C5 Aircross model's most unexpected feature - the 'ConnectedCAM', the world's first built-in dashcam system. With this, you get an integrated camera with a 128Gb memory that's positioned in front of the rear view mirror housing, giving the lens a 120-degree view of what's ahead of the car.

Cost of Ownership

We're used to modern Citroens being rather light by class standards, particularly models that are, like this one, built upon the PSA Group's stiff, sophisticated EMP2 platform. So the news that the fastest and best-equipped versions of this C5 Aircross tip the scales at well over 1.5-tonnes may prepare you for the fact that in trading up from the brand's smaller C3 Aircross model (which is a massive 400kgs lighter), your running cost returns are going to be very different. Of course, many C5 Aircross buyers won't be switching from something smaller in the Crossover class and these people will merely be happy to see that this car's efficiency stats number amongst the better readings that you can expect to get from a mid-sized volume brand SUV of this kind. In evaluating them, we'll quote you figures based on readings calculated using the latest 'WLTP' ('World harmonised Light vehicle Test Procedure') cycle, but the stats have been converted back to the most recent 'New European Driving Cycle' 'NEDC2' spec, since that's what a lot of rival models are still using. This 2.0-litre BlueHDi 180 diesel powerplant returns up to 47.1mpg and up to 124g/km.

Summary

So where does all that leave us? well, the damping of this C5 Aircross isn't quite as 'magic carpet'-like as this distinctively French maker likes to think it is. To truly get that, you'd need something like the trick hydropneumatic suspension system used by the classic models of the Sixties and Seventies that Citroen's now so keen to remind us about. But these were also the cars that led the company to bankruptcy and a takeover by Automobiles Peugeot from which the identity of the brand has taken decades to recover. But recover it has. Citroens are different and a little special once again. They're not quite as individualistic as they once were; a profitable volume brand can no longer make cars of that sort. But most of the models in the company's current line-up do at least try to bring something a little unique to their respective segments - as this one needs to, given its late arrival in the Crossover class. We think it makes sense in BlueHDi 180 form. And it makes stylish sense as a mid-sized SUV. Job done.

AIR C&C (new2) 10/01/2020

Citroen aims to deliver a more thoughtful, comfort-orientated take on the mid-sized SUV market with this stylish C5 Aircross model. Jonathan Crouch takes a look.

Ten Second Review

The C5 Aircross is, according to its maker, 'the most comfortable SUV on the market'. Quite a claim, given that this isn't a large, luxury crossover but is targeted at family buyers currently considering volume mid-sized models in this class like Nissan's Qashqai and SEAT's Ateca. Citroen may be rather late to this party but at least it's trying to bring something new.

Background

The legendary Citroen 2CV had a reputation for being able to comfortably traverse a ploughed field. That apart though, this French brand can't call on much customer recognition when it comes to vehicles cable of functioning off the beaten track. That has to change, given the current European obsession with SUVs and the company is depending on its Aircross range of models to convince customers of its crossover credibility. The first signs in this regard have been promising for the Gallic maker. The little C3 Aircross, launched in Summer 2017, has sold well in the small supermini-derived SUV sector. This family hatch-based C5 Aircross will be equally important. Citroen's Head of Product Xavier Peugeot says it brings 'an all-new level of overall comfort' to the segment and there's now a plug-in Hybrid version too.

Driving Experience

This car's key differentiating point is the way it glides over bumps. That ability comes courtesy of its Progressive Hydraulic Cushion suspension system. This two-stage set-up features a couple of hydraulic stops on each side of the car, one for compression, the other for rebound. For major uneven ground impacts, the hydraulic stops work with the springs and shock absorbers to avoid jerky movements and unpleasant bouncing. Thicker softer seat padding also embellishes the impression of comfort. And double-laminated front windows and engine bay soundproofing play their part in reducing cabin noise Engine-wise, C5 Aircross are offered four engines, a couple of petrols and a couple of diesels. The petrols are Citroen's PureTech 130 and 180 units, the former offered with an 8-speed automatic option that's mandatory for the '180' petrol model. You can also ask your dealer about a petrol/electric Hybrid version, which combines the PureTech 180 engine and EAT8 auto gearbox with an 80kW electric motor, delivering 225hp of accumulated power and instantly available torque of 320Nm, plus an electrified WLTP-rated driving range of up to 31 miles. The diesels are of the usual BlueHDi variety, with the 130hp version offered with manual or EAT8 auto form and the 180hp variant only as an EAT8 auto. There's no 4WD system offered, but buyers do get 'Grip Control with Hill Descent Assist', for extra front-driven traction in slippery conditions. There's also Hill Start Assist, to help you starting off up steep slopes. And Trailer Stability Control, to reduce trailer sway if you're towing. That's about as much as most likely buyers will ever need.

Design and Build

Citroen's Head of Styling Alexandre Malval describes this as an 'assertive design'. It certainly makes more of a visual statement than the last mid-sized SUV that Citroen sold, the Mitsubishi Outlander-derived C-Crosser model. The C5 Aircross is far more of an in-house effort, sharing the same EMP2 platform as the PSA Group's other mid-sized SUVs, the Peugeot 3008 and the DS 7 Crossback. It's 4.5m long and 1.84m wide with a 2.73m wheelbase, so is a touch bigger than cheaper cars in this class like Nissan's Qasqai and SEAT's Ateca. The brand's signature 'Air Bumps' make an appearance just above the lower side sills, but they're toned down here, just as they are in the latest C4 Cactus. Inside, that lengthy wheelbase translates into a cabin that feels significantly larger than that of most models in this class. Few competitors can match this C5 Aircross model's luggage capacity either, rated at 580-720-litres, depending on the position of the sliding second row bench. With that bench folded, there's 1,630-litres of luggage room. Noise touches include an active air quality system that uses an air-purifying carbon filter. Up-front, Citroen fans will note a retro touch in the form of the rolling speedometer, similar to that used on the old 1980's-era Citroen BX, incorporated as part of the instrumentation's 12.3-inch digital display.

Market and Model

Expect pricing fractionally above this car's cousin, the Peugeot 3008. Which means a £24,500-£33,000 bracket, spread across 'Feel', 'Flair' and 'Flair Plus' trim levels. The interior can be personalised with three ambiance packs - 'Standard', 'Metropolitan Grey' and 'Hype Brown'. There are also seven body colours, all of which can be combined with a black roof. There are three Colour Packs too, adding contrast-colour elements around the bodywork and subtly underlining the Airbump panels on the lower part of the front doors, the front bumper and the roof bars. Buyers choose between four alloy wheel designs too. Buyers can specify 'big car' features like a 360-degree camera system and a 'Park assist' set-up, plus you can of course add in things like keyless entry and a reversing camera. Camera-driven safety kit includes 'Active Safety Brake' autonomous braking, an 'Active Lane Departure Warning System', 'Active Lane-Keeping assist', 'Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop&Go', 'Collision Risk Alert', 'Coffee Break Alert', 'Driver Attention Alert', 'Traffic Sign Recognition', 'Highway Driver Assist' and 'Intelligent Beam Headlights'.

Cost of Ownership

Citroen's BlueHDi diesel engines have already proved themselves to be efficient and frugal in the brand's other models and that's carried forward here. As part of a re-homologation process, selected BlueHDi diesel engines in the C5 Aircross SUV range benefit from significant CO2 reductions. All 1.5L BlueHDi 130 S&S manual versions see a 3g/km decrease, from 108g/km to 105g/km, whilst the 1.5L BlueHDi 130 S&S EAT8 automatic versions see an even greater reduction of 5g/km, from 105g/km to 100g/km. Fuel economy-wise, the BlueHDi 130 variant that'll probably be the most popular choice manages around 65mpg on the combined cycle. Even if you go for the PureTech 130 petrol variant, you'll still be getting well over 55mpg. To do better, you'll need the plug-in petrol/electric Hybrid version. This is WLTP-rated at 166mpg, with NEDC emissions of just 39g/km; and there's up to 31 miles of WLTP rated electrified driving range if you keep it fully charged. Impressive engine technology also plays its part in this strong efficiency showing. The PureTech petrol models benefit from a 30% reduction in mechanical losses that are due to friction. While the PSA Group's BlueHDi diesel technology is based around a clever three-step after-treatment system designed to better eliminate the four nasty pollutants that diesel units usually put out - namely unburnt hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and particulates. Another thing that could help you keep garage costs in check is the affordable three year servicing plan that's available at point of purchase. Finally, there's the usual Citroen three year / 60,000 mile warranty.

Summary

In an SUV market as crowded as this one, any mainstream product simply has to bring something different to the table. Fortunately, this C5 Aircross can, its progressive hydraulic cushion suspension delivering a noticeable ride quality advantage over obvious rivals. Some of these handle better, but we think the way that this Citroen cruises over bumps and tarmac tears will be of more interest to likely family buyers. It'll still remain quite a rare sight on our roads, though the addition of plug-in technology may get this car back on to the radar of likely buyers in the mid-sized family crossover segment. Anyway, it's refreshing to see this Gallic brand getting back to what it does best. This car stands out as a result. As it very much needs to.
