Citroen’s compact SUV model comes with plenty of safety kit as standard, such as a forward-looking camera that works with various driver assist functions. In that configuration, the C5 Aircross managed to score 4 stars out of 5 in the Euro NCAP crash test.

The safety rating of the Citroen C5 Aircross increases to five stars when the optional Safety+ pack is fitted. The pack adds a radar sensor to the front camera, enhancing the performance of active safety systems like the AEB City, AEB Inter-Urban, AEB-pedestrian, as well as adding a cyclist detection system.

Euro NCAP performs a series of crash tests on each model tested:
- a frontal impact test, the car impacts a rigid barrier
- an offset frontal impact test, 40% of the width of the car is striking a deformable barrier
- a pole test, the tested car is propelled sideways into a rigid pole
- a side impact test, a mobile deformable barrier impacts the driver's door

A series of pedestrian tests are conducted with different impactors, adult and child head form, lower and upper leg form and whiplash tests are performed on a sled.

Active safety is tested based on the car’s equipment: autonomous emergency braking systems (car to car, with a pedestrian and a cyclist target), lane support and speed assist technologies and seatbelt reminders.
