Citroen C5 Aircross Hybrid 2020 — the first hybrid French crossover.
At the end of 2019, we can say for sure that this year has become a landmark for the automotive industry.

Most of the leading manufacturers have laid a solid foundation for stamping electric and hybrid models in 2020. And almost the last on the departing train of “those who managed to” decided to jump Citroen, with its first rechargeable hybrid — Aircross Hybrid 2020.
What interesting French buyers will offer, consider below.

Without further ado, it’s worth mentioning right away that the car is built on a Peugeot hybrid trolley, which presented its hybrid with an index of 3008. There are few reviews about it yet, but there is plenty of information about technological features.

Under the hood of the front-wheel drive Citroen C5 are hiding a 1.6-liter gasoline turbo engine with power up to 180 hp. and an electric motor, it’s also a 110 hp generator
Together, the guys will produce 225 hp, which significantly exceeds the standard ICE-Aircross. A couple of them will be an 8-band automatic, connecting to an electric motor with a friction clutch.

Range and electric traction were also announced. The block of lithium-ion batteries, oddly enough, settled on the bottom of the car, offers to drive purely on electric traction up to 50 km, while not exceeding the mark of 135 km / h. Capacity 13.2 kWh, official warranty — 8 years, or 160 thousand km.

By the way, it will be possible to charge the hybrid from a conventional outlet. A full charge from the network is replenished in 7 hours. There is also the possibility of recharge from Wallbox terminals. In this case, the charge will be up to 2 hours.

The socket is standardly located next to the gas tank cover, and for tracking the level of charge, in addition to the numbers on the screen, there is a color indication.

Additionally, the Citroen C5 takes into account safety standards for others. When driving exclusively on electric traction, the car does not make sounds, which often causes accidents with inattentive pedestrians and people with disabilities. Therefore, at low speeds, Aircross will voice its presence with a special melody.

Also, the hybrid was given smart motion control electronics, there are sports and economical modes on board. In the latter, the claimed consumption is only 1.7 liters per hundred. Impressive?

In appearance, as expected, only a freshly developed design did not shred, and quite good enough. But, like most other manufacturers, you can distinguish a hybrid from the ICE version not only by the nameplates on the stern, but also by the decorative blue inserts located in front and on the sides.

Otherwise, everything was inherited from the predecessor.

In size, the crossover also did not add:

Length, mm — 4164
Width, mm — 1756
Height, mm — 1597
Wheelbase (mm) — 2604

But the interior did not cost one decor. Nevertheless, in comparison with standard engines, the hybrid requires more electronics, but, as electric cars require, it is made in the most minimalistic style, taking into account comfort — the main attribute of SUVs.

Blue accents also fit into the interior. Torpedo slightly changed architecture. A 12-inch multimedia screen, fenced by two deflectors, was cut into the middle. Virtual dashboard in an extremely interesting performance — delicious and no frills.

The central tunnel roughly wedged into the torpedo. Which does not bend at all and evolves into the armrest. The area with the handle of the machine is crammed with niches and physical buttons, plus two cup holders.

Based on the trim materials of the Citroen C5, the Aircross Hybrid does not claim to be a luxury. The torpedo is represented by good plastic, and the seats are sewn from leatherette. By the way, the shape of the seats is quite unusual. Tiled architecture hints at a high level of comfort and blends perfectly with the front panel.

Price and sales start date
