2022 Citroen C5 Aircross Facelift Review : 9 Pros & 9 Cons

So, what’s new on the 2022 Citroen C5 Aircross facelift? You have a heavily redesigned front end, some changes at the rear and a few modifications on the inside.

2022 Citroen C5 Aircross Facelift Pros

  • A superbly engineered & properly premium crossover
  • Very stylish exteriors & interiors! We love the design. It’s matched to solid build quality
  • Good quality cabin with comfortable seats, lots of storage & fantastic insulation
  • 2.0L diesel engine is quick, efficient & extremely refined
  • Smooth 8-speed AT gearbox impresses
  • Excellent ride comfort and mature road manners. High speed behaviour is sorted too
  • Large, well-shaped 580 liter boot gobbles up holiday / airport luggage
  • Loaded to the gills with features such as a panoramic sunroof, handsfree tailgate opening, customisable instrument cluster, double laminated front windows, terrain modes…
  • 4-star rating in the Euro NCAP crash test. 3-point seatbelts for all five occupants, 6 airbags, blind spot monitoring system, ESP, hill hold, hill descent control and more

2022 Citroen C5 Aircross Facelift Cons

  • Very expensive! We wish Citroen had priced-it-to-sell-it (aka penetration pricing)
  • Rear legroom is strictly adequate. Two 5’10″ adults can sit behind each other, but not two 6-footers
  • No turbo-petrol engine (big miss), no AWD for tourers & no manual gearbox for MT fans
  • Not really sporty to drive. Cars like the Compass & Tiguan are more fun
  • Missing some features we expect today (connected car tech, ventilated seats, electrically adjustable passenger seat, ADAS, 360-degree camera, subwoofer…)
  • The bolstering of the 3 individual rear seats is suitable for slim passengers, not heavier ones
  • Audio sound quality is alright, but nothing special as you’d expect in a 40-lakh car
  • Many competing crossovers & SUVs offer a 3rd-row of seats, which the C5 Aircross doesn’t have
  • Long-term reliability & after-sales service quality are still big unknowns
