French automaker Citroen is once again giving you a reason to wish its cars were sold on this side of the Atlantic, unveiling a handsome new crossover at the Shanghai Motor Show.
Based on the Aircross Concept that was unveiled at the same show back in 2015, the Citroen C5 Aircross is the first vehicle to feature the automaker’s new hydraulic suspension setup aimed at maximizing on-road comfort.
The compact crossover’s design features a profile that’s reminiscent of the slightly larger GMC Acadia, with its pronounced C-pillar giving the look of a floating roofline in the rear. Around front is a modern adaptation of Citroen’s famed face, with its reverse chevron grille featuring prominently.

Inside, the Citroen C5 Aircross combines modern design elements and the latest technology to create and warm and welcoming space. It uses the sofa-inspired seating introduced in the C4 Cactus, while a 12.3-inch digital display replaces a conventional gauge cluster.
The C5 Aircross will come powered by the choice of gas engines or a combination gas-electric powertrain, making it the first ever hybrid offered by Citroen. It goes on sale in China this fall, followed by the European market in the second half of 2018.
