Citroen is set to add a touch of class to the estate car world with the introduction of the stylish, dynamic and eminently practical C5 Tourer which goes on sale on 17th June 2008.
Immediately impressive from any angle, the Tourer adds a new dimension - and a lot more space - to the C5 range, as one of the most luxurious ‘estate’ cars in its class. Bringing a fresh new approach to a market where good looking design is often passed over for practicality concerns, the Tourer features a highly versatile and spacious interior without compromising the C5’s seductive styling, delivering a car that meets all of the owner’s requirements.
The desirable exterior styling of the C5 Tourer demonstrates an exceptional level of quality and precision together with all the design flair and innovation for which Citroen is so renowned. Just as sophisticated as its Saloon counterpart, the C5 Tourer delivers even greater space and versatility, fulfilling the needs of drivers looking for the functional, load-lugging ability of an estate but clothed within a distinctive design.
With a keen sense of prestige and personality, the C5 Tourer boasts an impressive array of driver comforts and innovative touches along with new features tailored to the vehicle’s functional design philosophy. The unique combination of Citroen’s self-levelling suspension together with a motorised tailgate optimises the car’s ‘estate’ functionality. Loading the Tourer’s generous boot is made simple with the ability to raise or lower the rear suspension and also convenient with the tailgate’s remote controlled access.
Inside, the smart touches continue with an optional seat-back massage function offering luxurious comfort whilst a dual-function boot light / rechargeable torch provides a convenient portable light source.
Just like its Saloon counterpart the Tourer is based on the sophisticated running gear of the exclusive C6 offering class-beating road manners but with the Tourer’s practical benefit of added volume and generous proportions. Despite its increased dimensions, the Tourer maintains the elegant styling and aerodynamic qualities of its booted stablemate. With a range of proven engines and a choice of suspension systems, the Tourer offers an involved driving experience, ideally suited to users who spend hours on the road or seek a secure and spacious transportation for their families and equipment.
Complementing the C5 range and boasting the same features, engines and options as its Saloon counterpart, the Tourer could account for nearly as many sales as the Saloon, as it competes against the estate versions of the Volkswagen Passat, Ford Mondeo, and Mazda6.
