Citroen should introduce the C5 Aircross facelift in India in the future

Citroen has unveiled the 2022 C5 Aircross facelift for overseas markets. The premium SUV now comes with updated looks and more tech.

For 2022, the C5 Aircross has received a proper facelift. Replacing the split front light setup of the pre-facelift version, the updated model comes with single-piece headlamps with DRLs.

The grille is now illuminated and the bumper has a more sharper look to it, while along the sides, the premium SUV remains pretty much the same, save for a set of new alloy wheels.

The 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster has been retained

Moving along, at the back, Citroen has deemed fit that only the LED tail lights need to be updated with new signatures, leaving the tailgate and bumper untouched.

Inside, the dashboard has been mildly revised. A 10-inch infotainment touchscreen replaces the previous 8-inch unit, while the central air-con vents are now slim rectangular jobbies.

In addition, the centre console of the Citroen C5 Aircross facelift does not feature the gear selector. Instead, there is a toggle switch and new buttons that control various functions of the car.

In Europe, the SUV will also come with a plug-in hybrid powertrain

This comfort-oriented SUV now gets front seats with 15 mm of additional padding and it helps that they can be both heated and cooled as per the occupant’s wish.

No changes are expected to be made when it comes to the SUV’s powertrain. While the refreshed car will be offered in petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid guises on foreign soil, when it arrives to India sometime in the future, it should feature the same 2.0-litre diesel engine (177 PS and 400 Nm) and 8-speed auto combination.
