How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Leg room is ample in the front of the Citroën C5 Aircross and better than in the Mazda CX-5. While the CX-5 has more head room, the C5 Aircross's is fine as long as you avoid the optional panoramic sunroof available with the Shine Plus trim. 

Between the seats there are a couple of cupholders which will each take a large coffee with ease, and there are plenty of storage spaces dotted around. One of the biggest is under the front centre armrest – you can literally stick your whole arm into it because it's so deep. And that's good, because the glovebox is tiny.

Seat folding and flexibility

The Citroën C5 Aircross really excels in this area. All models, including the hybrid, offer three rear seats that are all the same size and can be folded, reclined and slid back and forth independently of one another. That means you can choose from several set-up combinations, allowing you to prioritise boot space or rear passenger space.

The front passenger seat has basic adjustments, including for height, but you can't vary the lumbar support, nor can you fold the backrest flat to accommodate really long loads as you can in the Skoda Kodiaq.
