Citroen C5 Aircross Radio Review

Citroen C5 AircrossCitroen is a name synonymous with a proud history and innovation. In recent years in Australia it has had a rocky journey, but this started to turn around recently with vehicles such as the C5 Aircross. Rob Fraser has just spent a week in one.

The French are different, they think differently and live differently to Australians’, and this comes through in the C5 Aircross design. In a world that is often same same for mid-sized SUVs, the CS brings a fresh approach with a bold muscular design, and a surprising 230mm ground clearance.

Inside the quirky French design continues with an elegant transmission lever, functional yet stylish a 12.3” digital instrument cluster and 8” centre touchscreen. The seats are supremely comfortable and the ride harks back to the famous hydraulic suspension with ground-breaking Progressive Hydraulic Cushions™ (PHC). The ride is equal to any on the market.

Add to this a number of clever pieces of integrated safety and comfort technology and for around $44,000 you can buy something a little different to the normal.
