REVEALED in January, the new Citroen C5 Aircross began its production at the Rennes factory in France in April and it is quickly being ramped up to prepare for the car’s commercial launch in June.

The Citroen C5 Aircross has enjoyed great success since it was unveiled in 2018 and launched in 2019.

It is now in 85 countries and has sold more than 325 000 units, including 245 000 in Europe.

It stands out in the highly competitive compact SUV segment, thanks to its on-board space and specifically its unrivalled comfort.


This SUV displays a new silhouette that expresses greater power and distinction while embodying a modern and dynamic style.

A benchmark in terms of comfort and modularity, the SUV is available in petrol and diesel versions and a plug-in hybrid version, which currently accounts for 41% of sales.


The combination of Citroën Advanced Comfort suspensions with Citroën Advanced Comfort seats, space and unrivalled modularity, as well as driver assistance technologies, such as Highway Driver Assist, transform each journey into a serene and relaxing experience.

The C5 Aircross is the only SUV in the segment to offer three individual sliding, reclining and retractable rear seats, with most spacious boot volume in its category.


The factory in Rennes has a place firmly rooted in the heart of Citroën’s history.

Having recently celebrated its 60th anniversary, the factory, which began production with the Ami 6 in 1961, has seen a large number of Citroën’s emblematic models roll off the production line, from the GS, the BX, the XM, the C5 and the C6, to name a few.

Production of the first C5 Aircross models began in March 2018 and the start of production of the restyled model strengthens a bit more the bond between Citroën and the factory.
