Citroen has released first details of the New Look C5, which features fresh new styling as well as significant technical, comfort and safety enhancements – some completely new to the class. The spacious New Look C5 is set to be revealed to the public this September at the Paris Motor Show.
Incorporating the Company’s new front end design, with its distinctive and striking double chevron grille, giving the model its bold new stance, the New Look C5 features a ‘boomerang’ style for both front and rear lights. The interior of the New Look C5 has also been updated, increasing the feeling of refinement.
Bristling with a wide array of innovative equipment, the New Look C5 features the Company’s sophisticated new lane departure warning system, that alerts drivers if they drift across lanes, as well as Xenon dual function directional headlamps which turn as the car corners.
Laminated side glass reduces noise levels as well as improves security, whilst front and rear parking sensors provide audible as well as visual warnings on a multifunctional screen. Safety is enhanced by the fitment of seven airbags, including one to protect the knee area, as well as a speed limiter and the latest generation ESP.
A choice of six powerplants will be available, with petrol units from 117hp to 210hp and the latest HDi common rail diesels, developing between 110hp and 138hp. New six speed manual and automatic gearboxes as well as the Company’s award-winning particulate filter will also be available.
The New Look C5 brings executive driving bang up to date and firmly establishes itself as a major contender that means business for those who value design, technology and spacious comfort on the road.Published 18 August 2004
