Overview


The Citroën C5 Aircross is a family-friendly SUV Plug-in Hybrid EV (PHEV). Squeezing around 30 or so real world miles from its 13kWh battery is fair going for a larger car, and performance, particularly in its "sport" mode, isn't too shabby. Some of those keen for some gallic flair may find it aesthetically, but the trim options are between the "Flair" and "Flair Plus" package, so it's definitely there on the inside!

* This metric estimates the environmental impact of driving your electric vehicle based on how the electricity that powers your car is generated. We take the average carbon intensity across the UK grid measured throughout 2019 to calculate the expected grams of CO2 emitted per 1 km driven. The actual number will vary by region, when you charge (e.g. carbon intensity is usually lower overnight period) and whether your electricity comes from more renewable sources than the average.
