Review
Test drove this small and compact designing SUV.

Exterior looks simply feels that you can be known of having a fashionable taste (as its after all design by French).

Basic features (of course you cannot par against like DS7 as its a more luxury one), but this comes as a compact SUV range where those into fashion, looks than features should be enticed by it.

Interior is pretty basic but does comes with some features such as the usual touch screen in 8 inches where the selling point was its comfortable seats (known to me by Sales as memory foam seats) which is great to sit on probably when you drive long distances. Also comes with digital cockpit too.

Driving it was pretty ok at NORMAL mode, did not try SPORTS mode as after all its not meant to be one. I must say, having deviated from conventional suspensions to hydraulics one (which mostly found in trucks), its a definite a GO for when I was told to "Dash" Across humps and seriously you DO NOT feel a thing, unlike even those high SUVs that I have driven before where you tend to feel sometimes.

Overall, its a compact SUV to look and get if you are into fashionable taste (minus its performance as its a daily car only) and for some its features that you can find against other brands where you need to top up or totally do not come with it, then C5 is the one.

What I like
The basics in a SUV.
Fashionable Design.
Memory foaming seats.
Comfortable ride (as due to its hydraulic suspension from conventional ones).
Blind Spot Assist.
Digital cockpit.

What I do not like
No sunroof or moonroof.
Electric tailgate (cannot remember seen or not).
Small glovebox.

Review
Just test drove the new C5 Aircross on Sunday. The car really surprise me. Granted that the cabin material may not be the best. I hate the interior hard plastic door panel. Also the infotainment system is not the best and the lack of physical control for aircon controls is irritating. Where the car surprise me is the moment the door is close. The door closing sound is solid, much better sounding then my C5 X7 and the car is very well insulated from outside world just like the old C5 X7. So far I only find Lexus GS, LS, Mercedes S-Class and Audi A8L quieter than my C5 X7. The new foam in the seats is also very comfy. The moment I started driving off, the way the suspension react very much remind me of Hydractive3+. Under hard acceleration, the car pick up quickly enough for me and the engine noise remain very well suppress. At this price, I doubt there is any car more comfortable than C5 Aircross. The Peugeot 3008 and DS7 just feels hard riding and noisy in comparison. If you got the time, you should go and test drive C5 Aircross.

What I like
- Comfortable Suspension
- Comfortable Seat
- Powerful Engine
- Very Good sound insulation
- Refine drive train
- Carplay and Android Auto
- Customisable Digital Speedometer
- The three individual rear seats

What I do not like
- No physical button for Aircon
- Hard plastic at the interior door panel
- Infotainment System can be slow
- The fake vents
- The rear seats can be wider
- Lack of electric seat for passenger, no memory seat for driver and no massaging function (C&C did not indent these features)
- The lack of LED headlights (Citroen did not make it for RHD market)
- Small glovebox (Citroen did not relocate the fuses during the LHD to RHD conversion)

Review
Was given the opportunity to test drive the Citroen C5 aircross, I was deeply impressed by its sleek and stylish look on the exterior. It gives a distinctive appearance that catches the attention of all while on the road.
Apart from the appearance itself, the car is tech integrated with features like led display screen with voice input while using the built-in GPS, which i think it saves the hassle of having to put yourself in danger while on the road when you lose your way. It has auto emergency features, parking censors, LED indicators, reverse cam with full view. Other than these features, its integrated dash cam on the rear mirror allows recording just by the push of a button. I was totally impressed by the new technologies that has been incorporated. For people like me who are heavy users of the mobile phone and hate to be "Phoneless", the C5 aircross has wireless charging functions that allows you to keep your car neat and tidy, and you do not have to worry about forgetting the charging cables.
The steering wheel is easy to maneuver, and the clutch is light. These features gives comfort to drivers which makes driving less tiring.
The interior of the C5 aircross is spacious, especially for people who are tall(I am standing at 1.66cm), it gives sufficient headroom which does not give the claustrophobic feel. The special cushion with suspension gives driver and passengers comfortable rides as it absorbs the impact in the event of an E-brake.
In my personal opinion, one of the reasons why this is the most practical family car is that the seats in C5 aircross is easily adjustable, not only for the front seat but for the backseat as well. Adjustments can be made to each seat, according to personal preference. As such, for families that require a baby seat, this is definitely a plus factor to consider for safety considerations.
One of the turnoffs for C5 aircross is that the material used for the interior has a "Plastic feel" Which discounts the stylish feel that the car has on the exterior, and given that this car is spacious, on the downside it does make the car look bulky.
