C5 AIRCROSS’S TECH TESTED
We briefly drove the C5 Aircross in prototype guise on a short handling circuit that consisted of smooth Tarmac and cobbled roads.
It was impossible not to notice the extra padding in the seats: posteriorsinkingly soft at first, but with sturdy side bolsters and plenty of under-thigh support.
The hydraulic cushions helped the car glide over normal roads, with less vibration over rougher surfaces than traditional dampers. The system isn’t infallible – speed bumps were still able to unsettle the ride, for instance – but, for the most part, it gives the C5 a character that’s unique among its peers.
