Accessibility & Motability

Usability for people with disability or their carers

Motability - Access

The Citroen C5 Aircross is simply remarkable where access is concerned. With front doors that open to a huge 70 degrees. Basically, the only way to get them any more out of the way would be to remove them altogether. One downside of this, however, is that with the door pulls at least halfway along the door trim, reaching it to shut the door will require quite a stretch.

Many will like that the driver’s seat is 690mm from the road in its lowest setting and a full 750mm at its highest, so you won’t need to lower yourself far when getting in or lift yourself high out of the seat at journey's end – you simply just slide in and out. The bad news is that, with just 710mm between the seat cushion and the top of the door aperture, you might have to duck your head a fair bit. 

The boot floor is also height-adjustable, so when it’s set as high as it’ll go there’s almost no load lip to speak of. And when the rear seats are folded down, the resultant area is completely flat, making it easy to slide awkward items in. 

The back seats are also split 40/20/40 and can be slid back and forward individually to vary boot space or rear legroom as needed.

Motability - Ease of use and options

There are a few options available to you if you need an automatic gearbox. You could have the 129bhp 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, which has enough get-up-and-go about it to avoid being overwhelmed in brisk traffic.
