Citroen Unveils The New C5 Aircross SUV

KUALA LUMPUR, April 20 (Bernama) -- Citroen has unveiled the new C5 Aircross SUV at the Shanghai Motor Show, making it a major asset in the company's international offensive this year.

Boasting of flowing and muscled bodylines, the new C5 Aircross SUV imposes its natural difference: a unique stance, conveying energy and self-confidence, it said in a statement.

C5 Aircross is a big milestone in the Citroen Advanced Comfort programme with the World Premiere of the "Progressive Hydraulic Cushions" suspension, delivering a unique smooth comfort of suspension that is typically Citroen.

It also offers generous dimensions for all passengers, benefitting from the highest level of technology aiming to ensure a modern and global approach of comfort.

Scheduled for launch in China in the second half of the year, and at the end of 2018 in Europe, the new C5 Aircross marks a new stage in the deployment of the brand's product strategy, it added.

UNIVERSAL EXPECTATIONS

The SUV trend has swept the world to account for almost one-quarter of global vehicle sales today.

SUVs meet universal expectations in an aspirational and strong way, suggesting freedom and reassurance and relying on evocating and clearly defined markers, such as large wheels, muscled and protective design and this king-of-the-road feeling.

Citroen gets into this trend that is bringing growth in every market in complete harmony with its own DNA.

Attentive to the expectations of customers who no longer want to sacrifice convenience to image alone, Citroen is paving the way for a new generation of SUVs with more personality and ease of use for all passengers while maintaining all the conventional cues.
