    2021 Citroen C5 Aircross review, road test

    Introduced in just two variants, Feel and Shine (as tested), they are similarly equipped, with the additions being a panoramic sunroof, LED headlamps and an electric tailgate in the latter. The standard features list includes 18-inch diamond-cut alloys, 8.0-inch touchscreen with Android and Apple connectivity, 6-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat, keyless entry and go, dual-zone climate control, air quality system, cruise control, ambient lighting and one-touch window operation. There is a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster to speak of as well, however, with  limited display options and rather unexciting screens, this feature could have been better executed.

    Large speedo readout, but other display options are limited and the fonts are not very easy to read.

    Standard safety features include auto headlamp and wipers, six airbags, ESP, hill-start assist, hill-descent control and blind spot assist. For the latter, there are orange LED indicators on the side mirrors that flash when there is a car or bike in your blind spot.

    Orange LED cautions driver of vehicle in blind spot.

    With the help of its front and rear sensors, the C5 will also steer itself into or out of a parallel or perpendicular spot, and the driver retains control over the brakes and gearbox. In addition, as you reverse, the camera also displays a top-view of the surroundings, which is particularly useful while reversing in a tight spot.
