The Citroen C8 is celebrating a fresh start to the New Year with a style update to the whole range.  As of January 2008, the Citroen C8 boasts a new 2.2 HDi engine on its SX and Exclusive models, as well as a choice of two new metallic colours.

The new 2.2 HDi engine offers 173 hp, and a massive 295 lb.ft of torque for effortless performance, with a top speed of 122 mph, 0 – 62 mph in 11.7 seconds and an out-of-town fuel consumption of 42.8 mpg.

The restyle incorporates the chevrons at the front and rear, bringing them in line with other models in the Citroen family, as well as a new-look grille, additional exterior chrome inserts, plus dark tinted windows and tailgate on Exclusive models.

Citroen has extended the style treatment to the interior too, with enhanced materials, soft-touch finishes and further chrome inserts for a polished look. Exclusive models also benefit from 16” Ispahan alloy wheels, leather seats as standard and front and rear parking sensors.  Whilst SX models gain new seat trims, a leather steering wheel and gear lever knob, speed limiter and Cruise Control.  LX models now boast an MP3 compatible stereo unit.
