The Double Chevron House launches the mid-career restyling of the Citroen C5 Aircross, updated both in terms of aesthetics and equipment.
After the very special C5 X , the Citroen brand has also given special treatment to one of the most popular SUVs by customers: thanks to the excellent commercial success achieved with over 260,000 units sold since its launch in 2018, the C5 Aircross was presented these days in a Model Year 2022 which effectively represents its “mid-career” restyling , characterized by a new aesthetic look, more spacious interiors and on-board equipment tending towards maximum multimedia.
Going in order, the renewed Citroen C5 Aircross 2022 first of all offers an unprecedented design of the front , more harmonious in the shapes thanks to a new bumper with side air intakes and a different geometry that involves the central logo of the brand and the very thin optical groups with technology Full LED . The latter are connected by two black stripes with very elegant vertical bars, while the badge is finished in glossy black with a chrome profile.
The novelties, of course, do not end here and continue with the fog lights and the underbody protection in more sporty tones , which go well with the 18 “diamond-finished rims , with a more accentuated three-dimensional rear light signature, with the unprecedented Eclipse Blue body color – which changes from black to blue depending on the direction of the sunlight on it – and with the four colors of air intakes and side protectors in off-road style plastic (Airbump).

On the other hand, proportions and dimensions remain unchanged, which confirm an excellent availability of space on board for passengers: these will be able to appreciate the brand new infotainment system with 10 “touchscreen in combination with the 12.3” digital cockpit , both inserted in a more modern and refined dashboard in the name of elegance with repositioned air vents and gear lever replaced by buttons for selecting the driving mode.
The Advanced Comfort seats already seen on the C5 X complete the work , further improved with an extra level of 15 mm padding and with the presence (as an option) of the heating, ventilation and massage functions. As for the ADAS package , the new C5 Aircross 2022 is also an extremely safe car thanks to over twenty electronic driving aids, including adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go and lane maintenance.
Nothing new, however, in terms of engines: in fact, the 1.2 PureTech petrol and BlueHDi turbodiesel engines have been confirmed, as well as the plug-in hybrid alternative with 1.6 PureTech in combination with an additional electric motor that pushes the power up to 225 horsepower.
The price list? For the moment, the Citroen brand has not confirmed anything official: in any case, the launch of the new C5 Aircross 2022 is scheduled for the next spring months.
