Citroën has updated the C5 with new technologies and styling features consistent with the brand’s current design cues and future ambitions.

Since their launch in 2008, the C5 Saloon and Tourer have together sold over 400,000 units worldwide. Now the C5 is more modern and elegant than ever, with an even stronger personality.

The Citroën C5 now features the brand’s new chevrons, which update the car’s expression with their enhanced curves. The C5 also gains the option of 17-inch ‘Egée’ alloy wheels on Exclusive models and a new pearlescent body colour - ‘Guaranja Brown’. Citroën C5 Exclusive models are available with a new part-leather upholstery and new interior design components.

To make driving easier, the C5 can be specified with a new eMyWay satellite navigation system combined with a Connecting Box - jack socket, USB port and Bluetooth® - as part of a new Techno Pack option. On the C5 Tourer, the eMyWay system can be hooked up to a reversing camera to make parking manoeuvres even safer.

The new Techno Packs are introduced across the entire C5 range. Priced at £700, they offer similar equipment across all three trim levels:

VTR Techno Pack VTR+ Techno Pack Exclusive Techno Pack
16“ ‘Iroise’ alloy wheels 17” ‘Ionian’ alloy wheels 18“ ‘Atlantic’ alloy wheels
Rear parking sensors Rear parking sensors Front parking sensors (Rear parking sensors standard on Exclusive)
eMyWay (includes Connecting Box) eMyWay (Connecting Box standard on VTR+) eMyWay (Connecting Box standard on Exclusive)
Chrome window sills Chrome window sills Reversing camera on Tourer models
Front fog lights

The Citroën C5 continues to feature modern, and even unique, technologies for the comfort and safety of all occupants. Examples include the Citroën eTouch Emergency & Assistance system and Hydractive III+ suspension - which remains a world exclusive for the Brand.
