According to Citroen, the C5 Aircross is a “people-minded SUV combining assertive design with an interior dedicated to well-being for all passengers”.
The new model is believed to have an very spacious cabin and will utilise the latest “technology to give owners an easier and safer drive, and takes a modern and all-encompassing approach to comfort”.
