It may not look like it but the C5 Salon and Tourer have together sold over 400,000 units worldwide since it went on sale in the UK in 2008. This year, the C5 have been rejuvenated with the new corporate identity and have gotten some new toys to play with.
Upfront, the Citroën puts on the new chevrons and if you can’t tell the difference, this one is less sharp than 2008. The C5 also gives buyers the option to have 17 inch Egée alloy wheels with the Exclusive models. There’s a new body colour, too, called Guaranja Brown. The C5 Exclusive’s interior features new components and its upholstery is part leather.
All C5s across the range can also be bundled with the Techno Pack, which costs an additional £700 only. The equipment list in the Techno Pack changes with the variant.
For the C5 VTR, the Techno Pack adds 16 inch ‘Iroise’ alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, eMyWay sat-nav (includes connecting box), chrome window sills and front fog lights. The VTR+ Techno Pack gives the C5 17 inch ‘Ionian’ alloy wheels, eMyWay sat-nav and chrome window sills. The Exclusive Techno Pack includes 18 inch ‘Atlantic’ alloy wheels, front parking sensors (rear sensors are standard with the Exclusive), eMyWay sat-nav and a reverse camera for Tourer models.
Prices start from £19,895 for the entry-level C5 Saloon HDi 115 manual VTR and £20,995 for the equivalent Tourer model.
