Citroen 'Europeanises' the C5 Aircross with new rear seats

15 November 2018

When it reaches European showrooms early in 2019, Citroen's C5 Aircross C-SUV will be new to this market but not new to the world - as we note in our PLDB database, it's actually been in production in China since the second half of last year, having made its global debut at the Shanghai show in April 2017. In China, with 40,000 sales to date, it supplemented the C5 sedan, over here it replaces the C5 (sedan and estate car) completely, tipping the established nameplate out of the non-premium D-segment pack and into the competitive C-SUV segment into which tout le monde de l'automobile is piling. On first look, it's very competitive.
