The C5 Aircross is a great-value large SUV that majors on comfort and refinement, but also offers flexible and frugal engines, versatile seating, a big boot and a decent amount of kit. Don't buy it if you want a plush interior, agile handling or seven seats, though, because its bigger sibling, the Peugeot 5008, and the Kia Sorento do those things rather better.

Range-topping C-Series Edition gives you everything you could ever need. That’s because it gets all the equipment of the other trim levels and adds 19in alloy wheels, a glass panoramic roof, a hands-free tailgate, an anodized bronze style pack and Citroën’s Safety Plus pack with highway driver assist. Still, it pushes the price up to the level of some of the C5 Aircross’s more accomplished rivals, so we’d avoid it.

If you’re planning to use your Citroën C5 Aircross for towing a caravan or boat, the BlueHDi 130 will be the one for you. It has the same power as the petrol-powered Puretech 130 but the extra low down shove means it’ll make progress with a full load far more effortlessly.
