Citroën C5 Aircross - Crash Tests - 2019

Description

After the three large off-roaders tested in February, Euro NCAP today releases the safety ratings of two smaller SUV’s: the new Citroën C5 Aircross and the Range Rover Evoque. The C5 Aircross is the latest addition to Citroën‘s Aircross family of crossover compact SUV’s and replaces the C4 Aircross which stopped production in 2017. The C5 Aircross offers most safety equipment as standard, including a forward-looking camera to enable driver assist functions, and has achieved 4 stars in Euro NCAP safety tests. The rating increases to 5 stars with the optional Safety+ Pack that adds a radar sensor to the camera to enhance the performance for AEB City, AEB Inter-Urban, AEB Pedestrian and adds cyclist detection. The recommended Safety+ pack is available in all markets and on all variants. The new, second-generation Range Rover Evoque was revealed last year amid high anticipation. Even though the popular luxury SUV looks similar to the first-generation vehicle tested by Euro NCAP in 2011, it is fully new under the skin. In safety terms, particularly the progress made in the area of vulnerable road user protection, with the adoption of an active bonnet and AEB for pedestrian and cyclist detection, are noteworthy and significant for this category of vehicle. Matched by an equally solid performance in other areas, the Evoque earns five stars in our latest safety tests. Both the C5 Aircross and Evoque were tested as diesel models, predicted to be the best sellers, despite the drop in popularity of this engine type in Europe. The ratings however are also valid for other variants listed on Euro NCAP’s website. Michiel van Ratingen, Secretary General of Euro NCAP, says: “These results show that car manufacturers are still keen and able to achieve the highest safety ratings. It is especially encouraging to see the continued widespread deployment and improvement of advanced technologies such as AEB and lane support. It is good news that some of the basic driver assist technologies will finally be mandated from 2022, but thankfully most vehicle manufacturers are already way ahead of the curve today.”

  • New Citroen C5 Aircross Trailer

    Visually larger and more modern, the Citroën C5 Aircross introduces a new design language, where the curvy shapes give way to more structured lines. The front end styling has been revised and is now more vertical and modern. The clean lines and vertical planes help to visually widen the front end of the C5 Aircross. The new C5 Aircross features a new interpretation of the brand's logo, now finished in black lacquer with a chrome surround. Visually, the double angle gradually merges into the LED daytime running lights via a series of increasingly narrow chrome and black piano keys and seemingly dissolves into the daytime running lights. This distinguishes the design from other current Citroën models, in which the double angle extends over a chrome strip to the daytime running lights.

  • New Citroen C5 Aircross Reveal Movie

    Citroën has unveiled significant changes to C5 Aircross, including an updated front end design that features a new interpretation of the iconic Citroën logo. Positioned in the centre of the grille, the updated badging is not the only noticeable feature of the new-look C5 Aircross. The V-shaped LED daytime running light signature gives a hi-tech, stronger-looking 3D effect to the front lights, whilst the upright design of the front grille adds to the robust stance of the vehicle.

  • Citroën C4 - Crash & Safety Tests - 2021

    The third-generation Citroën C4 sits firmly in four-star territory, with its performance in adult occupant protection, pedestrian protection and safety assistance failing to break the five-star threshold. The first offering from the newly-formed Stellantis group to be rated by Euro NCAP, the car was tested with the standard equipment available on the regular C4 and ë-C4 electric variants. This includes the AEB front crash prevention system for cars and pedestrians, but not the cyclist functionality that is only offered as an optional add-on.
