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

Adds a chunk to the asking price of the Feel, but it also adds useful features, such as front parking sensors, a rear-view camera, driver’s lumbar adjustment, sat-nav and bigger 18in alloy wheels.

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.
