Citroën confirms its worldwide offensive in the SUV segment with the presentation of two new models at the 2017 Shanghai Motor Show. C5 Aircross makes its global debut, alongside the C-Aircross Concept that previews the brand’s future compact SUV: C3 Aircross. These two new models represent a new generation of Citroën SUV focused on comfort.
The Citroën brand also expresses its expertise in the sedan segment, which remains a key category in China. New C5, produced and marketed in China, has received a design and technology update for extra occupant well-being. The advanced CXPERIENCE Concept also makes its first appearance in China. This concept car features all the elements of the Citroën Advanced Comfort programme and previews future large Citroën models.
Set for launch in China in the second half of 2017, new C5 Aircross SUV will subsequently see production and its commercial launch in Europe at the end of 2018.
Alongside New C5 Aircross, the brand will showcase the C-Aircross Concept which previews Citroën’s future compact SUV. Citroën has announced that the production version will be called C3 Aircross. New C3 Aircross will be launched in Europe before the end of 2017.
In China, these two new models will sit alongside the Citroën C3-XR, an SUV with an assertive personality and Dongfeng Citroën’s second best-selling model in 2016, with nearly 150,000 units sold since launch in 2015.
Citroën is further strengthening its position in the sedan segment with the renewal of the C5 for China, which is a modern and prestigious model with benchmark comfort that is making its debut appearance on the motor show stand.
