New C5 Aircross SUV is fitted with the Progressive Hydraulic Cushions® suspension system, a Citroën innovation driven by the company’s expertise in the suspension field. This technology, which arose from the Brand’s experience in motorsport, improves shock absorption, in particular when going over bumps and dips in the road, by reducing bouncing from recoil. This technology provides greater flexibility freedom in the car’s clearance, to achieve a “magic carpet ride” effect giving the impression that the car is gliding over the ground.
The wide and comfortable seats of New C5 Aircross SUV give passengers the feeling of pure comfort in a portable living room. 15mm-thick foam ensures their softness and durability. The front seats are filled with high-density foam to avoid poor posture after long periods of driving, and can be adjusted vertically; the headrests can be adjusted vertically and length ways. The front seats also offer a multi-point massage system.
With three individual, adjustable rear seats, New C5 Aircross SUV is the most modular vehicle in its segment.
