Citroën’s first SUV hybrid is making waves in the market and rightly so. The C5 Aircross SUV Hybrid is Citroën’s first ‘Low Emission Vehicle’, providing all the benefits of hybrid energy, combining electric-only journeys for short commutes and economical combustion engine for longer journeys, with SUV performance and outstanding comfort.
The advanced PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) technology allows for an electric-only driving range of up to 50 kilometres without any CO2 emissions whatsoever. The transition to ICE (Internal combustion engine) on longer distances is seamless, as the PureTech 180 (Euro 6.3) engine and an 80 kW electric motor work in perfect harmony.
You will always remain in complete control with three driving modes - ZEV, Hybrid or Sport - which are easily selected via the centre console. The interior features a dynamic eight-inch touchscreen which displays all the information you could possibly need about the hybrid drivetrain, including consumption statistics and electric drive range.
Citroën’s Connect Nav 3D navigation system automatically displays the closest public charge stations while the MyCitroën app allows you to control charging and view the battery charge level from your smartphone even when you are not in the car. Connection to charge points is quick and simple with convenient options for charging both at home via a standard outlet or a dedicated wall box, or via a public rapid charge point.
Important to note is that every inch of the Citroën C5 Aircross SUV Hybrid is focussed on comfort, which is guaranteed by Citroën’s Advanced Comfort® programme. Unrivalled and unprecedented comfort for every passenger, the Comfort® programme unlocks innovations like laminated windows which keep outside noise to a minimum and aeroplane-style headrests to create stress-free travel.
