In May tekuuschego year in Russia started selling the new off-road vehicle from the French automaker Citroën. It is a model called the 2018-2019 Citroen C5 CrossTourer – year, which was characteristic of body kits, more chrome, enlarged wheels and adaptive suspension that distinguishes the coupe version of the station wagon. However, to call it a full-fledged off-road vehicle is hardly possible, because the car is not the main attribute of the names – all-wheel drive. Perhaps 2018-2019 Citroen will correct this oversight later, and a brand-new 2018-2019 Citroen C5 Tourer Cross -, all-wheel drive will be the same. But while the fact remains.
Attempts to find a dramatic difference from the version of the versatile off-road vehicle is not crowned with much success. In fact, few of the manufacturers change the appearance beyond recognition, making the all-terrain modification of his station wagon.
The front part has remained unchanged, but has risen relative to the ground expense of increasing clearance. Traditional label companies to trim grille, interesting optics, fog lights, laconically in harmony with the head light and simple but elegant cowl. That’s all that can be said about the front of the machine.
On either side of visible bright strokes, new thresholds, plastic protection wheel arches, roof rails. All this has added some unique off-road vehicle, originality. In this way, a modified version looks more attractive, more aggressive than conventional wagon.
Behind it is also certain changes. First of all, it is evident stylized aluminum protective lining on the rear bumper. Incidentally, they are present at the front. The trunk is made carefully, not too massive, but also the corresponding general dimensions model. From changes in the coupe wagon luggage compartment did not win anything. In the standard position, luggage compartment capacity of 505 liters, and if you fold the rear row of seats, then this figure will increase to 1462 liters.
Shod car in the eighteen inch wheels, which allowed complete image of all-terrain off-road vehicle defective. See photos and compare, much whether vsedorozhnaya different version from the version in the station wagon. And draw appropriate conclusions.
If we talk about the dimensions of the 2018-2019 Citroen C5 CrossTourer, they are as follows.
- Machine length was 4829 mm, width 1860 mm remained.
- At the height of the new exhibits at 1479 millimeters the wheelbase width of 2815 millimeters.
- Curb weight is different and can vary from 1534 kg to 1767 kg. This depends on the vehicle equipment, as well as the selected motor buyer.
Do not try to find significant differences in the interior C5 CrossTourer and versatile interior. They simply do not have. However, the interior was a solid, comfortable, with well-distributed controls various systems and options.
When you sit behind the wheel, do not feel that something is out of place, not a desire to swap buttons, move the transmission and so on.
Interior is fully consistent with the manufacturer, who said that the interior will create a business-class European level. 2018-2019 Citroen has kept his word, and inside was impressive tourer.
The novelty accessories out pretty good. On Russian territory 2018-2019 Citroen will send two versions of its off-road vehicle. This version of the Comfort and Exclusive. The basic version provides for adaptive cornering light, based on halogen, LED daytime running lights, protivotumanok, electric handbrake, seven airbags. In addition, you get on-board computer, cruise control, heated two front seats, rear partktronik, power mirrors, which will also automatically take shape, sound system in the six speakers with USB connectors, with bluetooth function, interior fabric, external off-road kit.
It would seem that Citroën has to offer in the top performance. It turns out that a lot of things. So, the top version is available with bi-xenon headlamps swivel with integrated washers, Podgora rear seats, interior trim and skin, front parking sensors. Unfortunately, if you aim for the maximum version, all the same for a number of options will have to pay. Thus, separately payable on the touch screen of seven inches, alarm system, a rearview camera, panoramic roof and full leather interior.
As we have noted, in the Russian car 2018-2019 Citroen C4 Cross Tourer will be available in two trim levels. Dealers have already named and the official rate. So, for the basic equipment the buyer will have to pay 1.3 million rubles, while the top of the range will cost at least 1.75 million rubles, taking into account the availability of additional paid options.
It is not clear, can whether such prices to compete with the Frenchman acknowledged segment leader, and even in the absence of a full drive.
The car C4 KrossTurer specifications were quite good. Total manufacturer offers three engine choices. Unfortunately, as a complement to them is no alternative gearbox. This is a six-speed automatic.
In the basic version you will get petrol, by the way, the only engine in the line of engines for this car.
- This four-cylinder turbocharged 1.6-liter that produces 150 horsepower good. Maximum speed off-road vehicle with the engine makes 210 kilometers per hour, and from zero to hundreds of start in 10.2 seconds. Spend the car on the combined cycle is approximately 7.7 liters.

Well, we have a good car, applying for participation in the struggle for all-terrain wagon segment. Of course, the main drawback is the lack of 2018-2019 Citroen’s most important attribute of off-road vehicle – all-wheel drive. Although customer reviews give some confidence that the French created a decent model that could still impose a competition to other brands. Whether it will get from them? Only time will tell, and the final sales statistics. Because patience and, of course, we wish this really good car good luck. Who knows, maybe 2018-2019 Citroen finally be able to become more popular, in demand with good confidence of the customers brand. Although it will have to make some concessions and to change its policy. This is especially true of complete sets and co-pay for the option.
