Citroen C5 Aircross review - Reliability and Safety

Reliability is still TBC, but the Aircross is built on an established platform

The C5 Aircross didn't feature in our 2020 Driver Power survey, although the smaller C3 Aircross finished inn 66th place out of 75 cars. Citroen managed to improve on its brand position, moving up to 18th overall out of 30 manufacturers. 

Euro NCAP tested the C5 Aircross in 2019 and awarded the SUV a four-star rating, although this is upgraded to five stars if customers spec an optional safety pack. Adult and child occupant safety achieved 87% and 86%, respectively, but pedestrian safety only managed a 58% score.

The C5 Aircross comes with a host of driver aids as standard, including Highway Driver Assist, which allows the car to follow the car in front on a motorway, including bringing it to a stop automatically in traffic. Also available is an extended traffic sign recognition system, ensuring you never miss a warning or speed limit sign as these are shown in the driver display. 

Warranty

Citroen provides a two-year, unlimited-mileage warranty, and you get an additional year’s cover provided by the dealer, albeit limited to 60,000 miles. It’s par for the course, but soundly beaten by warranty offers from the likes of Toyota and Hyundai.

Servicing

Citroen offers a pre-pay servicing package through its dealers. It’s available up to a year from the car’s first registration date, but before its first service, and allows you to pay in advance for your car’s servicing for three years or 35,000 miles.
