The Citroën C5 Aircross, the brand's mid-size SUV with double chevrons, has risen to the top of its category in terms of safety, according to the latest Crash Test Awards. The C5 Aircross convinced the jury with its impressive safety equipment, making it the best choice in terms of price/safety ratio among the models launched on the Argentinian market in 2023.

Organised by CESVI Argentina (Center for Experimentation and Road Safety), the latest edition of The Safest Car has awarded the Citroën C5 Aircross in the medium SUV category for its commitment to safety, offering a complete set of equipment designed to guarantee the comfort and safety of its occupants. The CESVI safety index, which assesses the safety level of vehicles on the Argentinean market, highlighted the 14 integrated driving aids of the Citroën large SUV, which tipped the scales in its favour at the Crash Test Awards.

These include Active Lane Change Warning with Correction, Active Safety Automatic Braking, Blind Spot Assist and Maximum Speed Sign Recognition, all of which contribute to a semi-autonomous driving experience. . Features such as traction control, hill start assist, downhill assist and stability control further enhance the car's active safety.

Passive safety is not neglected either, with the presence of 6 airbags (front, side and curtain), as well as inertia seat belts and Isofix anchors for the safe transport of child seats. The Citroën C5 Aircross also offers a high level of passenger comfort, an exceptional driving position and dynamic behaviour thanks to technologies such as the suspension with progressive hydraulic shock absorbers and the Grip Control system, which improves traction on different types of terrain.

Unique in its segment, the C5 Aircross also offers 3 individual sliding, reclining and folding rear seats, offering the modularity of a minivan in an SUV, ensuring comfort for all occupants.

In short, the Citroën C5 Aircross embodies safety excellence, combining advanced technologies and comfort to offer a driving experience that is both safe and enjoyable. With this prestigious recognition from the Crash Test Awards, it confirms its position as the undisputed reference in the mid-size SUV segment, meeting the expectations of Citroën brand enthusiasts and demanding drivers looking for safety and comfort.
