The offer of electrified SUVs on the Czech market is being expanded by the plug-in hybrid Citroën C5 Aircross. And if one condition is met, it can cost CZK 895,000.
He arrived this week plug-in hybrid Citroën C5 Aircross officially on the Czech market and you can look forward to a traditional editorial test. Even before him, we visited a press conference to introduce the French novelty, and it is no surprise that we were mainly interested in the price.
The C5 Aircross comes into the socket in a single technical specification, so prices are only affected by the selected equipment level. Citroën has prepared a special benefit for domestic customers of up to CZK 72,000, with which the car will start at CZK 945,000 with basic Feel equipment. So to be specific, you can press the price to 895,000 CZK, if you use the bonus of 50,000 CZK for an old car (applies to all equipment). In our attached table below, however, we only calculate with a special advantage, not a redemption.
Feel features 8-inch wheels and receives front and rear parking sensors and a parking camera, electric parking brake, hill start assist, automatic dual-zone climate control, 12.3 ”digital instrument panel, 8-inch multimedia navigation system screen, cruise control with speed limiter and and so on. The Feel Pack version starts at CZK 985,000 and in addition provides additional daytime running lights with LED optics, LED turn signals, Advanced Comfort seats or tinted rear window glass.
The higher version of the Shine for CZK 1,025,000 already has Full LED headlights, laminated acoustic windows in the front front windows, adaptive cruise control with stop & go function, upholstery combining leather and fabric or decorative elements on the body. The Shine Pack with assisted driving on the motorway, heated front seats, electrically operated driver’s seat, hands-free opening of the boot lid, induction charging of the phone and nineteen-inch wheels costs CZK 20,000 more.
However, even the price of over a million does not mean that you have nothing more to pay for. However, rather than a panoramic sunroof with an electric sun visor for CZK 33,000, we recommend a more powerful on-board charger with an output of 7.4 kW (standardly 3.7 kW) for CZK 8,000. Metallic paint comes to CZK 15,500, special pearl white costs CZK 20,000 and the contrasting color of the roof and mirrors costs another CZK 12,000.
The plug-in technology of the hybrid C5 Aircross has not been a secret for some time, but let’s remember it. The basis is a petrol four-cylinder 16-cylinder engine with an output of 133 kW combined with an electric motor at the front, which supplies another 81 kW. But because the numbers can’t be easily added, we get a system power of 165 kW (225 hp) and 360 newton meters of torque. The French plug-in hybrid is combined exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, the ATV does not offer the novelty. The battery with a capacity of 13.2 kWh (usable 11.8 kWh) is to offer a range of 56 km (WLTP).
Compared to the conventionally powered variant, it will be pleasing that the luggage compartment has remained the same (as has the ground clearance). The C5 Aircross benefits from a platform that has included battery installation from the start. The trunk can hold 460 liters of luggage as standard, or 1510 liters when the rear seats are folded down. The only downside is the smaller fuel tank. While the combustion car can hold 53 liters, the plug-in hybrid is 10 liters less. The car can be charged from just over seven hours from a classic home socket, but with a home wallbox and an optional on-board charger, it can do it from 0 to 100% in two hours.
