Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, protection of the neck of the 10 year dummy was ADEQUATE, while the protection offered to all other critical body regions of both the 6 and 10 year dummies was GOOD.

In the side impact test, protection of all critical body areas was GOOD for both child dummies.

The Citroen C5 Aircross is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed that all of the selected child restraints could be accommodated in each of the rear seating positions and full points were scored for this assessment.

Pedestrian Summary

The bonnet of the Citroen C5 Aircross provided GOOD or ADEQUATE protection to the head of a struck pedestrian over most of its surface, with WEAK and POOR results recorded on the stiff windscreen pillars, the base of the windscreen and the front edge of the bonnet. The bumper provided GOOD protection to pedestrians’ legs and protection of the pelvis was also GOOD.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system is capable of detecting and reacting to vulnerable road users. The AEB system offered MARGINAL performance in tests of its effectiveness in pedestrian test scenarios, with ADEQUATE performance recorded in daylight scenarios and POOR performance in nighttime scenarios.

The AEB system offered as standard in Australia and New Zealand is unable to detect cyclists. Shine variants in New Zealand have an improved system, however this system was not scored as is not available as standard or part of an option pack on all variants. The system’s overall performance was classified as WEAK.
