Citroën C5 Aircross SUV models get lower BiK ratings

By / 5 months ago / Latest News / No Comments

Citroën has lowered the CO2 on a number of its C5 Aircross SUV models, bringing reduced Benefit-in-Kind ratings.

Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) taxation bands see reductions of up to 2% on selected C5 Aircross SUV models

Effective from March 2021 production, there are reductions of 1-7g/km of CO2 across the PureTech 130 petrol 6-speed manual and BlueHDi 130 Diesel 8-speed automatic versions.

For company car drivers, the lower CO2 emissions result in BiK tax band reductions of up to 2% – as an example, this reduces the cost to a 40% taxpayer by over £208 in the 2021/22 period for the Shine PureTech 130 S&S manual.

In addition to its improved efficiency, the C5 Aircross SUV range benefited from a list price reduction of up to £1,320 in December 2020 under Citroën UK’s ‘Fair Pricing’ policy, which was announced as part of the Citroën ‘Advance UK’ mid-term plan.

The C5 Aircross is available in a choice of four trim levels, ‘Sense’, ‘Shine’, ‘C-Series’ and ‘Shine Plus’. Standard equipment includes LED headlights and a Citroën Safety Pack (Active Safety Brake and Active Lane Departure Warning), along with rear parking sensors, 18-inch alloy wheels, DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
