The car was covered in appearance but admitting that, Citroen’s administration was absolutely evident. The breach headlamp setup, the bifold chevron Citroen logo, and the two-part air dam with a solid block of the bonanza in amid all apprehend aback to the C5 Aircross’ design.
Things aren’t too bright at the rear though, as alone a assertive area of the appendage lights is visible.
