  3. High five for Citroen's new medium SUVhttps://www.stuff.co.nz/motoring/road-tests/109909709/high-five-for-citroens-new-medium-suv Citroen has always been more keen on quirky people movers than high-riding SUVs. It's a very Continental thing. Except that it's becoming less of thing as time goes on, which is why the French brand has finally created something that competes in New Zealand's most popular single new-vehicle segment: medium SUVs. So say "salut/gidday" to the new C5 Aircross, a European Car of the Year nominee that's heading here in September. Perhaps because it's come so late to the SUV party, Citroen reckons the C5 Aircross answers buyer concerns about the relative lack of comfort and practicality in the latest fashion-led soft-roaders. It's based on the same front-drive platform as the Peugeot 3008, but it's 55mm longer in the wheelbase (and stretched by the same amount overall). The idea is that the C5 Aircross is more spacious on the inside than your average medium SUV, more comfortable with Citroen's new-generation Advanced Comfort Seats (15mm surface foam, mattress-like filling and more memory foam underneath) and especially more practical. The rear seats are split 40/20/40, all three sections slide individually and the backrests can be adjusted for rake, meaning luggage capacity ranges from a generous 580 litres to a very impressive 720 while maintaining five chairs. Not exactly luxurious for rear occupants in the latter position, but hey - you can do it. It's all very people-mover-like. You can see what they've done there. There's just one high-specification model for NZ, powered by a version of Peugeot-Citroen's familiar 1.6-litre turbo-petrol with 132kW/250Nm. That's more grunt than you get in the top-line 3008 petrol models (121kW/240Nm) and it's matched to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The comfort ethos continues in the suspension with Citroen's Progressive Hydraulic Cushion (PHC) dampers, a unique system originally developed for the brand's rally cars that has extra baby dampers at the top and bottom of the main units to smooth out the up-and-down movements, while maintaining good control in the mid-range. So at a projected price just under $50k, you're potentially getting a larger, more powerful and better equipped SUV (stuff like adaptive cruise will likely be standard on the Kiwi C5 Aircross) for a little less money than the equivalent 3008. It's expected to account for at least of half of Citroen's Kiwi volume when it comes on stream in September, although with no price-leading model and the fact that it's a new thing for a niche brand, it'll still be a fairly small concern. The local distributor reckons the 3008 will still outsell the C5 Aircross three-to-one. At Citroen's international media launch in Morocco. Marrakech in fact, from the chaos of the city where you're constantly dodging battered Peugeot 504 utes, out into wide open spaces and around the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. An ambitious drive-location and obviously one chosen to showcase the squishy underpinnings and long cruising legs of the C5 Aircross. ​The so-called "180" (that's horsepower) version of this engine is a gem: perky and punchy, even if it gets a little raucous up top. The eight-speed transmission is seamless and smooth at a cruise, although it can get a bit fidgety when you ask the big questions with the throttle. The roads in Morocco are famously bad in places: narrow, ruts and plenty of big potholes. A tough test then. As with the PHC-equipped C4 Cactus we tested in NZ late last year, we found the C5 Aircross chassis had a tendency to occasionally crash into broken tarmac at urban speeds, but cruised serenely on the open road, combining the right degree of classic Citroen "waft" with good body control. It's a ride-handling combination that suits the medium-SUV C5 Aircross much better than the city-oriented C4 Cactus. And don't mistake comfort-oriented dynamics for a sluggish feel: the C5 Aircross is literally light on its feet, with a kerb weight of just 1430kg. We ventured off-tarmac a little, although take note that as with the sister 3008, the C5 Aircross is front-drive only. Kiwi models will likely ride on 19-inch wheels, but if you're willing to step down to 18s you can have Grip Control as an option - a drive-mode selector that adjusts traction control and transmission calibration for low traction surfaces. What really stands out? Character: a more fluid low-speed ride would be welcome, but overall the Citroen's deliberately non-sporty demeanour and strong visual character are hugely refreshing. The interior ambience is pretty chill as well - lounge-like in its styling and high in equipment. The controls are pleasingly simple but there's hi-tech on board, including a neat virtual instrument panel. The choice of materials is more in the cheap-and-cheerful mould, though: the textures are interesting but a lot of the plastic is pretty hard. It's nothing like as premium as the touchy feely environment of a 3008. Why would I buy it? Because it proves that medium-sized SUVs don't have to be generic boxes. Because it really does blend SUV style with a touch of people-mover practicality. Or because Citroen is doing some pretty cool stuff these days that's full of character without being self-consciously quirky, and you want in.

    Citroen C4 Picasso

    Folks would like to know more info about this car. Those who own it or test driv before, care to share? 1) reliability. As tis is a Citroën which I ve heard a lot of negative news about it before (NOTE: in the past) thus would like to know is this a problematic car? Issues like gear issue, engine etc. 2) if I dun go back to agt for servicing, are there a lot of werkshop outside who can service tis car? 3) generally is this a good car to drive? I'm currently driving a forestor. I'm impressed by the interior but have yet to test drive as would like to gather more info first. 4) not sure if this is a good Q to ask... Pardon me if not. I ve a chance as this owner is selling but is a CNG. Let's not look at other issues but will u consider a CNG as a good option or will not? Thks.
  5. Hi gents, would like to seek your advices and opinions. My car had a recall from Cycle on the urea tank issue and cycle had replaced during the warranty period. I had another urea injector replaced just before my warranty ends however today I had a fault code on the urea emission but the car no longer has warranty. Just passed the 100k mark. My question is if the fault is again on the urea, can i still claim warranty from AD since recall issue has not being resolve which is due to manufacturer fault? My car is a citroen diesel.

    DS7 Crossback E-Tense 4×4

    DS7 Crossback E-Tense 4×4 – SUV PHEV with 296 hphttps://paultan.org/2018/09/25/ds7-crossback-e-tense-4x4-suv-phev-with-296-hp/ This is the DS7 Crossback E-Tense 4×4, a plug-in hybrid variant of the French SUV that was revealed in 2017. According to the company, the PHEV model marks an important point in its future as all new models will be electrified versions thereafter. Focusing on the powertrain first, the DS7 Crossback E-Tense 4×4 features a 1.6 litre turbocharged four-cylinder PureTech petrol engine that makes 197 hp (200 PS) at 5,550 rpm and 300 Nm of torque at 3,000 rpm. An EAT8 eight-speed electrified automatic transmission is mated to the engine. The internal combustion engine (ICE) is helped along by two 107 hp (109 PS or 80 kw) electric motors – one on each axle to provide all-wheel drive. DS Automobiles notes that the unit at the front has a higher torque output at 337 Nm compared to the 166 Nm at the rear. Put together, the end result is a total system output of 296 hp (300 PS) and 450 Nm, which is good for a 0-100 km/h time of 6.5 seconds, while the usual highway overtaking sprint from 80-120 km/h takes just 4.4 seconds. While running on the ICE, the vehicle’s top speed is 220 km/h but is lowered to 135 km/h when only the electric motors are in play. Those motors draw power from a vehicle floor-mounted, 120 kg, 13.2 kWh lithium-ion battery (90 kW power rating) that operates between 240-400 volts, allowing the SUV to travel on electricity alone for up to 50 km (WLTP). Meanwhile, the claimed combined fuel consumption figure is around 2.2 litres per 100 km (WLTP), while CO2 emissions is below 49 g/km. By default, the car starts in Zero emission mode whereby only the electric motors provide the motivation. Drivers can also swap to Hybrid mode that summons the ICE into action when needed, Sport mode for maximum performance, and 4WD mode when optimum traction is necessary on varying terrain. A final mode, E-Save, preserves enough energy to drive in all-electric mode for the last 10-20 km of a journey. As for recharging the battery, it’ll take about two hours when the SUV is plugged (Type 2 connect) into a 6.6 kW charger linked to a 32 A power point, four hours with a 14 A plug, and eight hours on a domestic 8 A plug. Other means of getting the battery juiced up are via regenerative braking or using the ICE as a generator. Visually, the car looks largely indifferent from a regular DS7 Crossback aside from the addition of a charging port on the left side of the vehicle, as well as the letter ‘E’ embossed on the gear lever – a nod to the DS E-Tense concept from 2016.

    MCF Hangout with Citroen

    80 MyCarForum (MCF) members and their loved ones gathered at Masons at Gillman Barracks on Saturday afternoon to celebrate Christmas with Citroen Singapore. Aside from a sumptuous brunch, the event was an opportunity for MCF members to learn more about the Citroen brand and its latest range, in particular its C3 Aircross, which is in the running for sgCarMart's Compact Crossover of the Year 2018. During the event, sgCarMart's Deputy Editor Nigel Yong shared his experience driving the C3 Aircross, which he describes as 'a quirky-looking compact crossover that's highly practical'. "The C3 Aircross, with its pudgy proportions, slatted rear quarter glass and animated two-tier headlamps, is so unorthodox that you can't help but love it. And thanks to the PSA Group's PureTech 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine that powers it, supplying 110bhp and 205Nm of torque to the front wheels, there's enough spirited performance for zipping around town. More importantly, the amount of storage bins and cup holders on offer meet the standards of its class, while its 410-litre boot is big enough for a family's needs," he said. Dave Wong, Senior Manager Sales & Marketing, Cycle & Carriage France, continued by giving the guests further insights into the rest of Citroen's history, technology and range, which currently comprises the C4 Cactus and Grand C4 SpaceTourer, too. At the same time, guests had the opportunity to test drive the full range of Citroen models, while those who were waiting for their turns enjoyed quizzes and a round of Bingo. Of course, in the spirit of giving, some lucky MCF members also walked away with attractive Christmas hampers. All smiles behind the wheel of the Citroen Grand C4 SpaceTourer! sgCarMart's Deputy Editor Nigel Yong shares what he likes about the C3 Aircross. Guests learn more about the Citroen brand and its products from Dave Wong, Senior Manager Sales & Marketing, Cycle & Carriage France. Tummies have to be filled! Fun and games for guests of all ages! In true MCF Hangout tradition, everyone goes home happy! Those who have graced the event, and have yet to pen down their reviews of the Citroen cars they drove, can submit one here!

    Citroen C5 vs Peugeot 508

    Hi bros, These 2 niche market models competing in the 1.6 Cat A category. At under 130,000 about the same price as a Kia K5, I think it's worth a good look. I'm keen for one. Any comments?

    Citroen C4 Cactus

    Citroen C4 Cactus unveiled with roof-mounted airbag Citroens have always been a little bit different, and perhaps this new one is even more unique than others. Full official details of the radical Citroen C4 Cactus have been released over yesterday’s leaked images, giving us insights of the brand’s, say, unique take on a C-segment vehicle. This is a “real alternative” to compact hatchbacks, according to Citroen. Its approach is an original one, especially when it comes to appearance. The earlier Cactus Concept’s split headlamps, ‘floating’ roof, upswept C-pillar, flat-dish wheels and 3D-effect rear lights are all carried over to the production version. Even the Airbumps – impact-absorbing soft air capsules to protect the body against minor bumps and scratches – have made it through to the production phase. Talk about being bold. Same goes to the interior, which has a few unique touches too. It has a seven-inch multimedia touch-screen display as standard, along with fully digital instrumentations behind the steering wheel. The button-type gear selectors also allowed Citroen to fit wide sofa-style seats at the front. Meanwhile, the front passenger airbag has been moved to the roof (Airbag In Roof technology) – a world-exclusive feature that creates more interior room and storage space. Another innovative addition is the panoramic glazed roof with advanced heat protection to let the light in but keep the heat out. Through the use of an “optimised platform” (i.e. not the new EMP2 modular base) and new engines, Citroen has managed to bring the weight down by 200 kg compared to the existing C4 hatchback. As such, the most efficient diesel variant will average just 3.1 litres per 100 km (32.3 km/l).
