Paying an extra £1,475 ($1,918/€1,766) for the Flair Plus gets you additional amenities, such as the active cruise control, electric driver’s seat and hands-free tailgate. This trim level also adds the 19-inch two-tone alloy wheels, as well as part-leather interior upholstery.
The plug-in hybrid powertrain consists of a 1.6-liter turbo-four petrol engine and an electric motor that develop a combined 225 PS (222 HP / 165 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque. Feeding the motor is the 13.2 kWh battery that gives it a 55 km (34-mile) electric range in the WLTP cycle, takes less than 2 hours to charge with the optional 7.4 kW charger and 7 hours using a domestic socket. The powertrain drives the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Compared to the petrol- and diesel-powered C5 Aircross models, the PHEV adds ‘Hybrid’ badging on the front fenders and tailgate and can be specified in the optional Anodised Blue exterior color. It also features a storage compartment under the boot floor for storing the cable, custom interface for the infotainment system and instrument cluster, special drive mode selector, programmable cabin pre-conditioning, keyless entry and go and acoustically insulated front side windows.
The vehicle also benefits from the Progressive Hydraulic Cushions and multi-arm rear suspension.
