The C5 Aircross is based on the PSA EMP2 platform which also underpins the Peugeot 4008, known as 3008 elsewhere.

At launch the C5 Aircross will be available with the same engines as the 3008/4008: a 1.6 turbo with 167hp and 245nm, and a 1.8 turbo with 204hp and 280nm, both mated to a six-speed automatic. Sources say that Citroen is working on a 2.0 turbo version, a hybrid, and an LWB seven-seat version (like the Tiguan L / Allspace).

The 1.6 turbo will be designated 350TPH and the 1.8 turbo 380TPH.

The Chinese name for the C5 Aircross is Tianyi. It is made locally by Dongfeng-PSA, the joint venture that also makes the 4008.
