Citroen, having revealed the exterior form of its production C5 Aircross last month through a couple of sketches, has released another rendered image of the car ahead of its world debut in Shanghai next week.

This time, the front half of interior takes centre stage, and design highlights include a massive central display screen, a digital instrument cluster as well double air-conditioning vent layout. The wide centre console is home to a start/stop ignition push-button, electronic parking brake and an automatic gear lever reminiscent of that seen on the Peugeot 3008. A rotary selector knob displays five operation mode settings.

No new technical details, aside from the mention that the C5 Aircross will also debut a suspension system equipped with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions, which effectively filters out road imperfections. The technology will be highlighted in Shanghai through a technical demonstration stand at the automaker’s display area.

The C5 Aircross sits on the EMP2 platform, which underpins the new DS7 Crossback. While powertrain choices haven’t been revealed, the C5 Aicross is expected to feature the latter’s range of engines.

These include the familiar Prince 1.6 litre THP turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and a 1.2 litre PureTech turbo petrol three-pot as well as a 1.6 litre BlueHDi turbodiesel, while transmission options should be made up of a six-speed manual and a new eight-speed automatic.

Elsewhere, the automaker confirmed that the production version of the C-Aircross concept – which premiered in Geneva – will officially be called the C3 Aircross. The series production version of the vehicle will be launched before the end of the year.
