2022 Citroen C5 Aircross Facelift Revealed
Citroen have updated the C5 Aircross overseas. It gets an updated front and rear profile, along with some new features. On the front, the C5 Aircross gets a new grille with knurled finishing, flanked by updated LED headlights. The LED DRLs are now split into two and blend into the grille’s design. In addition to that, both the front and rear bumpers are updated along with a new set of 18-inch alloy wheels. At the rear, the C5 Aircross gets updated LED tail lights. With the facelift, Citroen have retained the thick body cladding and door air bumps that help avoid small dents and scratches.
On the inside, while the layout of the dashboard remains the same, the C5 Aircross gets an updated and larger 10.0-inch touchscreen infotainment. In addition to that, the C5 Aircross offers a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, shift by wire technology, a wireless charger, ventilated and heated front seats and a panoramic sunroof. Citroen have retained the individual seating for rear passengers with the C5 Aircross, so it lacks a centre armrest and cup holders.
On the powertrain front, Citroen are yet to announce complete details. We expect the C5 Aircross to continue with the 2.0L diesel engine that produces 177PS and 400Nm of torque, mated to an 8-speed torque converter automatic transmission. Globally, Citroen also offer a plug-in-hybrid version of the C5 Aircross.
We expect Citroen to launch the C5 Aircross facelift in the Indian market too. It remains to be seen whether Citroen will offer a petrol engine in the C5 Aircross or not. Talking about its rivals, Jeep updated the Compass with a major facelift last year and Hyundai are readying the 2022 Tucson for the Indian market. 2022 Hyundai Tucson was recently spied on our roads without any camouflage.
