1 Plenty of space insideAny standard car can accommodate four passengers, but not everyone will provide enough space for family belongings and various little things. Soft toys, pillows, soldiers, clothes, food, water, wires, and even acorns with stones ― all of the above found a place and even remained in stock. Because in addition to cup holders and door niches for all passengers, there is also enough space for bags on the back of the seats and two large glove boxes.And the rear row seats can be adjusted for departure, which greatly simplifies the life of the front passengers ― children no longer rest their feet on the backs of the seats, but freely chat with them below. There are enough modern options in the car ― for example, wireless charging and all kinds of driver assistance systems. CarPlay and Android Auto work, alas, only through a wired smartphone connection.
2 Very soft suspension (too much)The length of the Citroen C5 Aircross crossover is 4.5 meters. It just occupied a niche between the two closest relatives on the platform ― Peugeot 3008 and 5008. All three have semi-independent rear suspension and uncontested front-wheel drive. But it was the C5 Aircross that was the first to get the new Progressive Hydraulic Cushions suspension. The company's engineers say that rally technology is used in the system settings. Conventional passive shock absorbers received additional hydraulic travel stops instead of rubber dampers. They protect the suspension from deep impacts, and passengers from unpleasant sensations in the spine and unnecessary sounds.Track, road patches, and speed bumps remind of themselves only visually. But the C5 Aircross has no alternative to front-wheel drive, and this is probably the only big technological disadvantage.
3 Build-in video recorderA Connected Cam dashcam is mounted in the Citroen C5 Aircross angle is 120, and can also take photos on the go. As conceived by the French, this option will appeal to those who like to share their road trips on social networks. But the DVR can be used for completely different purposes.The device records all events in high resolution on a built-in 16 GB memory card. To watch the video, you just need to install a special application on your phone and synchronize it with the recorder. This can be done via wired or Bluetooth. There is a special button on the body of the device, long-pressing of which will give the command to forcibly record a two-minute video. A short press is set to take a photo. In the event of an accident, special sensors start the recorder forcibly, and it saves video 20 seconds before and a minute after the accident.The DVR comes as standard equipment and is located in the most convenient place ― behind the rear-view mirror so that no wires and the device body hide the view.
4 Many assistantsThe C5 Aircross can be equipped with various options to match. There are not only adaptive LED headlights and cruise control but also a variety of assistants and assistants. Traffic Sign Recognition helps keep you from speeding on unfamiliar tracks. Automatic braking in front of obstacle signals in advance that the flow stops in a traffic jam. And keeping the car in the lane in time brings Morpheus back from the embrace when his eyes fall together from the endless road after getting up early. Even on the steering wheel, there is a sensor that tells the car when the driver's grip starts to loosen and a beep should be given.The C5 Aircross has a Grip Control washer. It changes the settings of the driving electronics depending on the road surface, there are modes for sand and snow. However, there are a lot of options. For example, for a panoramic roof, they will be asked to pay additionally.
5 Turbo engines onlyCitroen C5 Aircross is offered with two engines to choose from. Gasoline turbo engine with a volume of 1.6 liters and a capacity of 150 hp. works in tandem with a six-speed "automatic", but a 2.0-liter turbodiesel with a capacity of 180 hp. got a more modern eight-speed "automatic". With the C5 diesel engine, the Aircross rides briskly, picking up speed without any hesitation. In this version, the fuel consumption will also please, which does not exceed 7 liters per 100 kilometers.
