A bold new look, extra tech features and updated trim levels distinguish the latest Citroën C5 Aircross which is now officially available from UK dealers.

The latest 14-model range also gets new model designations and, as well as the familiar 130bhp PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel engines with a choice of manual or auto transmissions. There’s also a plug-in hybrid version that delivers up to 38 miles of electric-only range on a single charge. Prices start from £26,930, or at £35,835 for the plug-in hybrid versions.

The latest versions have been updated with a new front-end design, featuring an alternative interpretation of the Citroën brand’s V-shaped LED light signature. There are changes at the back too, with a more angular design to the light clusters designed to match the new styling at the front of the vehicle.

All versions come with the company’s Advanced Comfort Suspension which uses Progressive Hydraulic Cushions® to absorb bumps in the road and to keep passengers comfortable, as well as latest-generation Advanced Comfort Seats which now boast a core of high-density foam and an additional 15mm top layer of memory foam.

Other changes include a new 10-inch high-definition touchscreen which is positioned higher up on the dashboard, augmenting a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display.

Three trim levels are available - Sense Plus, Shine and C-Series Edition - with the latter two being available with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain which combines a 180hp petrol engine, an 80kW electric motor and an 8-speed electrified auto gearbox.

Entry level Sense Plus models come with 18-inch diamond cut bi-tone alloy wheels, electrically-operated and heated door mirrors, complete with LED approach lighting. The front and rear lights also feature LED technology.

Standard safety features include Active Safety Brake with video assistance, Collision Risk Alert, Active Lane Departure Warning and Speed Limit Information with Intelligent Speed Adaptation. The City Camera Pack adds front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera.

Shine models feature a Dark Chrome Colour Pack and Citroën Air bump bodyside inserts, which help protect the vehicle in the event of minor accidents or impacts. Additional safety features include Blind Spot Monitoring and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop Go functionality on automatic and plug-in hybrid versions.

Top-of-the-range C-Series Edition models boast a distinctive Anodised Bronze Colour Pack and a bi-tone finish with the roof painted Perla Nera Black plus a panoramic glass sunroof, and 19-inch diamond-cut bi-tone alloy wheels. Interior upgrades include black leather and leather-effect trim, while safety is further enhanced with Highway Driver Assist –a level 2 semi-autonomous technology combining Adaptive Cruise Control and Active Lane Keeping Assist.
