Review

The C5 Aircross is a great value large SUV that majors on comfort and refinement, but it’s also blessed with punchy yet frugal engines and a big boot. Its handling is rather roly poly and there’s no seven seat option, though

get the best price

The recommendable entry model comes with an infotainment package featuring an 8.0in touchscreen, DAB radio, Bluetooth and smartphone mirroring. You also get a 12.3in digital instrument pack, rear parking sensors, electric windows (front and rear), automatic lights and wipers, dual-zone climate control and 17in alloy wheels. Safety-wise it comes with automatic emergency braking, lane assist and blind spot assist.

Comes with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox. Likely to be our favourite when you balance running costs with performance, but so far we’ve not driven it in the C5 Aircross.
