Citroen C5 Aircross 2022: Facelift, New Headlight & Interior

The French manufacturer's large SUV makes the difference by offering Citroën Advanced Comfort suspensions, new Citroën Advanced Comfort seats, and unrivaled space and modularity

With more than 18,000 sales since its launch in 2018 in Spain, the C5 Aircross has distinguished itself in the competitive compact SUV segment thanks to its onboard space, its modularity, and, above all, unmatched comfort in its segment. Taking advantage of Citroën’s experience in minivans, the splendid interior, which has become one of the hallmarks of the brand, sets it apart from the competition. C5 Aircross remains a benchmark in terms of practicality and offers a more serene onboard experience. A reinforced sensation in the rechargeable hybrid version that already accounts for more than 30% of the mix in Europe.

The change of expression and the desire to leap in terms of perceived quality and elegance, especially expressed in the front, are the characteristics that define the new C5 Aircross.

It becomes more aspirational and will appeal to customers looking for a more distinctive character. Specifically, the front design adopts a new, more vertical image that reinforces its character. The straight lines and the vertical ladder construction create the visual widening of the front of the C5 Aircross. Seemingly wider and more imposing on the road, its appearance conveys greater confidence and security.

It also debuts a new interpretation of the chevrons that progressively regain their independence and move away from the daytime running lights, thus marking an evolution concerning the rest of the models in the range in which the chevrons were extended to the headlights using a chrome bead. The chevrons are now lacquered in black, with a chrome accent, and are visually stretched by a set of black and chrome piano keys increasingly close together that progressively blend into the LED daytime running lights. Chevrons now stand out much more in the center of the grill.

Also noteworthy are the now open and functional side intakes, as well as the new identity of Citroën, the luminous signature of LED in a fine and chiseled ‘V’, receives a 3D effect through the ‘piano keys’. These daytime running lights create a deep, technological look. At the same time, the Vision LED headlights are now more discreet thanks to a darkened treatment, which amplifies the visual continuity with the glossy black grille and thus reinforces the perception of robustness.

In keeping with the front of the vehicle, the C5 Aircross receives a new three-dimensional LED light signature at the rear. Without changing shape, the optical compartment receives a structured and darkened glass that makes the 3 LED modules that make up the light signature stand out. This new, modern design accentuates elegance and consistency with the front light signature. In addition, as on the front, the subtle animation in the shape of a piano key reinforces the 3D effect and greater depth of this light signature.
