Citroën C5 Aircross gains new auto powertrain and cuts diesel CO2
Citroën UK has revised its engine line-up for the C5 Aircross SUV as it also announces lower CO2 levels for certain BlueHDi models.
Announced ahead of the arrival of the plug-in hybrid this year, the changes see the introduction of a new PureTech 130 S&S (Stop & Start) EAT8 eight-speed automatic option, replacing the SUV’s current PureTech 180 S&S EAT8 automatic versions.
It’s available on the two most popular trim levels in the UK, ‘Flair’ and ‘Flair+’, and can ordered now, with first deliveries expected in March 2020.
In addition, as part of a re-homologation process, selected BlueHDi diesel engines in the range have seen CO2 reductions. All 1.5-litre BlueHDi 130 S&S manual versions are now rated as 3g/km lower, from 108g/km to 105g/km, whilst the 1.5-litre BlueHDi 130 S&S EAT8 automatic versions drops 5g/km, from 105g/km to 100g/km.
