A NEW high specification version of the Citroen C5 Aircross SUV has been announced in the shape of a Black Edition model to join its range of plug-in hybrid offerings.
The car will be priced from £36,850 and it will sit at the top of the hybrid line up over Shine and Shine Plus trim levels.
In Black Edition specification the C5 Aircross comes with a black roof and door mirrors, 19-inch alloys and an opening panoramic sunroof as well as a power operated tailgate.
Inside, the seats are trimmed in black Alcantara upholstery.
Other standard equipment includes an eight-inch touchscreen linked to the Citroen Connect Nav system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera, power-folding door mirrors and keyless entry and start.
The new model also comes with Citroen's Safety Plus Pack, as standard, which includes blind-spot monitoring and advanced Active Safety Brake with video and radar assistance.
The Black Edition models also have a Highway Driver Assist set up that regulates the vehicle's speed and proximity to the vehicle in front, as well as assisting the driver with in-lane vehicle positioning for use while motorway driving.
The car is powered by a PureTech 180 turbo petrol engine mated to an electric motor and Citroen claims it is capable of travelling up to 34 miles purely on electricity when full charged.
Recharging can be done in under two hours from a 32A wallbox or a public charging point.
