Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Citroën C5 AIRCROSS hatchback?

The Peugeot 5008 is a highly regarded large SUV, because it has a great interior with versatile seating and a great level of standard equipment. It shares much of its mechanicals with the C5 Aircross so offers the same range of impressive engines.

If you want value in your large SUV, there’s little to beat the Kia Sorento. It’s simply massive inside, with seating for seven and a useable boot, even when all its seats are erected. The only engine available is an occasionally grumbly 2.2-litre diesel, but its performance is good and it all settles down at a cruise. Plus, Kia's market-leading seven-year warranty will please anyone considering a car for the long run.   

Overview

The Citroën C5 Aircross is five seats only but it delivers comfort in spades and is a good used buy, too

  • Mostly smooth ride
  • Quiet interior even at motorway speeds
  • Efficient engines
  • Wallows in corners
  • No seven seat version
  • Question mark over long term reliability
