Rochdale Observer - - WHAT’S ON WITH ALL ACROSS THE ARTS LISTINGS -

ITROEN is mak­ing a play for a piece of the ac­tion in the boom­ing medium SUV mar­ket with its new C5 Air­cross flag­ship. Com­pet­i­tively priced and com­plete with ex­clu­sive fea­tures, Citroen says its new model is all about com­fort.

The C5 Air­cross is fit­ted with Citroen’s lat­est sus­pen­sion sys­tem, spe­cially de­signed seats and has plenty of room through­out the cabin.

The re­sult brings a ‘magic car­pet’ ride to the main­stream SUV sec­tor and in this league the French car maker is out on its own.

The SUV will be on the road in the UK early next year and priced from £23,255 most mod­els will come in cheaper than its sis­ter ship, the Peu­geot 3008.

The 13 model C5 Air­cross range tops out at £30,725 for a petrol powered 1.6-litre PureTech en­gined
