Review

It doesn’t really do sharp handling, it’s not quite big enough to match the best in class for practicality, nor does it come with seven seats. Yet don’t overlook the C5 Aircross if those limitations don’t worry you, because it has a lot of other things going for it; its ride is superb on most roads, it cruises along supremely quietly, it has a reasonable purchase price and very reasonable running costs.

Trim: Flair Plus

We wouldn’t recommend this trim because it’s too pricey for not a lot extra, other than keyless entry, a powered tailgate (with gesture control opening), adaptive cruise control, wireless phone charging and big 19in alloy wheels.

Engine: 1.2 PureTech 130

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.
