The new Citroen C5 Aircross will be the brand's halo offering for now and will compete in the same space as the Hyundai Tucson, Jeep Compass facelift and the likes. The model gets a quirky design language that sets it apart from most offerings on our roads, while the focus of the brand is to offer comfort to the customers. In fact, Citroen follows the "unique comfort" signature element across all its cars and markets, which sets it apart from the rivals.
