The one niggle, however, is that that middle seat doesn’t get Isofix points – you only get them on the outer seats, and Citroen says you aren’t allowed to install a child seat in the central seat at all.
That contrasts poorly with the Peugeot 5008, which offers three sets of Isofix points in this row, not to mention those two extra rear seats, both of which can take child seats secured with seat belts. A top-spec 5008 with the same engine and gearbox will, of course, set you back more – but not all that much.
Is the Citroen C5 Aircross comfortable?
Yes. In fact, comfort is one of its greatest assets. The driving position is very well thought out, with not only plenty of adjustability but well-placed armrests on both sides that connect to the elbows of even taller drivers like me.
Then there are the seats; big, cushy armchairs that are immediately welcoming. Their softness might have you believe they’ll cause back ache on a long journey, but in fact I never once found that to be a problem – the amount of support you get seems well judged.
