It's clear to see from the official photos that the C5 Aircross carries the styling of the Aircross concept, first shown at the Shanghai show two years ago, albeit in a more toned-down form than the concept's zany styling.
Like the concept, Citröen's quirky airbump cladding appears on the car, in a more developed form. Overall, the design draws heavily from the C3; the supermini's styling could well preview the look of the entire Citröen lineup.
The interior features a large amount of brown leather, with a dominant central infotainment touchscreen and separate digital display - presumably derived from Peugeot's i-Cockpit - in place of the car's dials and speedo.
Elsewhere in the cabin, the automatic gear lever confirms that the car will get an auto 'box, while a rotary knob suggests an advanced traction control system. This doesn't guarantee all-wheel drive; Citröen offers its Grip Control front-wheel drive off-road-friendly traction control system elsewhere in the range. Regardless, the car is likely to have four-wheel drive in the upper spec levels.
Full details of the C5 Aircross will be revealed at the car's official debut at the Shanghai motor show next week, but this comprehensive leak leaves very little to the imagination.
