Citroen Australia has finally confirmed pricing for the facelifted C5 Aircross, with the one-model range priced from $54,990 before on-road costs.

    For a fairly minor $2690 premium over the ageing MY22 version, the new 2023 Citroen Aircross picks up a number of upgrades beyond its fresh looks, an upgraded drivetrain, more features, and much improved technology.

    The French brand’s updated mid-size SUV will be hitting Australian showrooms later in April 2023, and take on the related Peugeot 3008 as well as a litany of better-known competitors in the Medium SUV segment, including the Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5 and Volkswagen Tiguan.

    Citroen’s price positioning puts the C5 Aircross against high-spec versions of its Asian rivals, in addition to between the base Allure and mid-spec GT versions of its aforementioned 3008 platform mate.

    Pricing excludes on-road costs


    Power in the new Citroen C5 Aircross comes from a 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine, which drives the front wheels via a new eight-speed automatic transmission.

    Outputs are rated at 133kW (5500rpm) and 250Nm (1650rpm), compared to the pre-update model’s 121kW and six-speed automatic.

    While not available in the Australian market, the C5 Aircross also offers a 165kW 1.6-litre plug-in hybrid overseas, similar to the PHEV drivetrain offered in local Peugeot products, as well as the C5 X.


    Citroen claims combined fuel usage of 5.7L per 100km. CO2 emissions, meanwhile, are rated at 130g/km.

    • Luggage capacity: 580L-1630L

    Servicing and Warranty

    The C5 Aircross is covered by the brand’s five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty in Australia.

    There’s also five years of roadside assistance thrown in, as well as a five-year Service Price Promise program.

    Scheduled maintenance is required every 12 months or 20,000km – whichever comes first – and there are pre-paid servicing plans for three- and five-year periods.

    The three-year service pack costs $1100, while the five-year package lists for $2000.


    The pre-facelift Citroen C5 Aircross wears a four-star ANCAP safety rating based on 2019 testing.

    It scored 87 per cent for adult occupant protection, 88 per cent for child occupant protection, 58 per cent for vulnerable road user protection, and 73 per cent for safety assist.

    The key barrier for the C5 Aircross in its initial safety assessment was that Australian models had the basic AEB package that performed weakly with regards to protecting vulnerable road users.

    It’s unclear whether the updated model will be retested in an effort to have its rating adjusted.

    Standard safety features include:

    • Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)
    • Blind-spot monitoring
    • Emergency brake assist
    • Highway Driver Assist
      • Adaptive cruise control incl. stop/go
