The PSA Group (Peugeot, Citroen, DS and Opel/Vauxhall) is highly topical. The incorporation of the German firm into their ranks is the expansion of the range of models from the manufacturer of the double chevron. Citroen takes a while letting us know that its product offensive would leave by way of the SUV and now that the new AirCross C3 (discard that Picasso is called) it is already public, they are playing to fool with his older brother.
The Geneva Auto Show has been a success for the firm since there present the main novelties of the French House have been able to meet them first-hand. However, taking advantage of the main topic of conversation was the acquisition of Opel and its SUV range they have decided to release a couple of renderings on could it be the compact SUV future in the House, to see how the audience reacted.
Two photos that has released the French firm based its design on the last concept Aircross introduced by Citroën in the year 2015 in Shangail. C5 Aircross drink of its basic lines and with over these two years, we can say that it has improved a little. Surprisingly, the newest member of the family SUV will keep the aesthetic features that are already present in the Cactus C4 and C3. However, it will also have elements of design as lighthouses and some expressive lines.
By now we know this SUV is that it could be called C5 AirCross as per size well could serve to replace the outdated media brand saloon. In addition, we also know that it has been developed between the PSA group and Dongfeng, capitalist and strategic partner that has the French group in the Chinese market.
In addition to all this, it is expected that Citroën C5 AirCross reach the market with a new range of PureTech petrol engines and in various versions an automatic transmission with eight-speed (the same one that has released the 7 Crossback DS). In addition, you should also expect a plug-in hybrid mechanical option to reduce consumption and emissions and at the same time offer a variant with four wheel drive.
When we know more data from the rival Nissan Qashqai we’ll let you know. Although we miss anything the French firm decides to make it official in the next room of the Shanghai automobile. The reason is that the first country that will go on sale will be China and subsequently should reach the rest of face international markets by the year 2020. Patience.
