Citroën C5 Saloon - Soundproofing

High-quality soundproofing ensures a relaxed ride:

Citroën C5 Saloon - Hill Start Assist

The Hill Start Assist function keeps your vehicle steady for two seconds after you release the brake pedal on a slope of over 3%. This gives you time to move your foot from the  brake pedal to the accelerator

Citroën C5 Saloon - Park Assist

Park Assist makes manoeuvring in tight spaces much easier. Ultrasonic sensors in the bumpers sense any obstacles close to the car and alert you with an audible beep. You can also check the location of the obstacles on the on board computer screen.

Citroën C5 Saloon - Space gap measurement system

The parking space 'gap' measurement system works with the parking sensors to help you park your vehicle. As well as telling you whether a space is big enough to park in, it even lets you know how difficult it will be to manoeuvre into.

Citroën C5 Saloon - Electric handbrake

The Citroën C5 Saloon features an electric parking brake. By simply pressing a button on the central console you can set to engage automatically when the engine stops and disengage when you accelerate.
The electric parking brake is coupled with the Hill Start Assist function and
comes as standard on vehicles fitted with Hydractive III+ suspension.

Citroën  C5 - Cruise control/speed limiter

The Citroën C5 Saloon incorporates two speed management features, controlled from the steering wheel, for your peace of mind:

  • sport mode for a more dynamic ride

Metal suspension

For those who prefer a sportier driving experience, the metal suspension option provides a stonger feeling of connection with the road.

High-spec headlamps

Halogen headlamps

Citroën C5 Saloon - Halogen lights

The Citroën C5 Saloon's halogen headlamps cover up to 75° to the right- or left-hand side of the vehicle, depending on the movement of the steering wheel.
This lets you anticipate bends in the road and gives the drivers of oncoming vehicles advance notice of your presence. LED daytime-running lights also increase the visibility of the vehicle in the daylight.

Dual-function xenon headlamps

Citroën C5 Saloon - Dual-function Xenon lights

Twice as bright as halogen headlamps, xenon directional headlamps set a high standard in safety, providing excellent visibility at night or in bad weather:

  • the headlamps follow the steering angle of the car so you can see the road ahead sooner
  • white beams make night driving less tiring
  • corner lights cover an angle of up to 105° on each side for increased visibility
  • LED daytime running lights also increase the car's visibility




Smart Traction Control

Lane Departure Warning System


The Citroën C5 Saloon comes with an innovative comprehensive braking system as standard. This includes:

  • four large-diameter vented disc brakes
  • an ABS feature that adjusts braking pressure electronically to stop the wheels locking
  • EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution) that distributes braking power evenly to all wheels
  • EBA (Emergency Braking Assistance) that boosts braking power instantly when you press hard on the brake pedal

The Citroën C5 Saloon's ESC (Electronic Stability Control) with traction control helps you keep the car stable. For example it automatically adjusts the brakeforce distribution and engine speed to handle even the tightest corners smoothly.

The Citroën C5 Saloon's Intelligent Traction Control System makes driving on slippery terrain safer. It analyses a wide range of parameters, including the slipperiness of the ground and its angle and adjusts the right and left wheels separately. If the car skids it will immediately engage the brakes.
This helps to keep the vehicle under control on wet roads, snow and black ice, especially with the addition of snow tyres.

It's easy to get sleepy on long night drives. However the Citroën C5 Saloon's LDWS (Lane Departure Warning System) can help to keep you safe.  
When the function is activated, sensors at the front at the car detect any unintentional lane change. The system sounds a warning beep and vibrates the driver’s seat to alert you.

The Citroën C5 Saloon is designed to cushion its occupants from the impact of a crash:

  • Seven airbags are included as standard (front, lateral, knee and curtain)
  • Two additional lateral airbags are available at the rear
  • The steering column retracts by more than 65mm to protect the driver


BlueHDi technology

Citroën C5 Saloon - BlueHDi technology

The BlueHDi engine incorporates leading-edge technology that eliminates:

  • 99.9% of diesel particles
  • 90% of nitrogen dioxide particles

Particulate filter

Citroën C5 Saloon - Particulate filter
