The Citroën C5 Saloon is a prestige vehicle that sets a new standard in the sedan market. With its aerodynamic lines and powerful body profile, from some angles this elegant saloon resembles a thoroughbred coupé.
The Citroën C5 Saloon's concave rear window is characteristic of our larger models. As well as adding a distinctive style, the reverse curve of the window allows easy access to the boot.
With the Exclusive trim option, chrome inserts add a sophisticated touch to the lower body, radiator grille, bumpers and side windows.
And on the HDi 200 automatic model, chrome twin exhaust tailpipes underline the powerful design of the rear end.
The LED daytime running lights add an additional touch of elegance while improving the car's visibility.
The Citroën C5 Saloon comes with a wide selection of wheel options, including 16" - 19" alloys, which add to its elegance and distinctive character.
Every detail of the cabin, from the dashboard to the central console and door panels has been designed with style in mind.
The Citroën C5 Saloon's cockpit-style driving position is designed to produce a driving experience that's both intuitive and thrilling.
The fixed centred controls on the steering wheel give you easy access to frequently used functions, including stereo and mobile phone controls.
Driving information is displayed on three elegant dials. The needles run round rather than across each dial for easier reading.
The Citroën C5 Saloon's seating meets the highest standards in comfort:
The Citroën C5 Saloon's design makes full use of the generous cabin space. Features include:
The Citroën C5 Saloon's automatic air conditioning is designed to ensure a comfortable temperature for all passengers:
High-quality soundproofing ensures a relaxed ride:
The Citroën C5 Saloon's Hi-Fi audio System offers exceptional acoustic qualities:
The integral eMyWay satellite navigation system features a 7 inch 16/9 colour display. It also includes:
With Citroën eTouch, your Citroën C5 Saloon can make localised assistance and emergency calls. It also allows you to access the Eco Driving service and a virtual maintenance manual.
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
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.
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.
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.
The Citroën C5 Saloon incorporates two speed management features, controlled from the steering wheel, for your peace of mind:
The Hydractive III+ suspension is designed with comfort as top priority and keeps the car at a constant height, regardless of load. Features include:
For those who prefer a sportier driving experience, the metal suspension option provides a stonger feeling of connection with the road.
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.
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 Citroën C5 Saloon comes with an innovative comprehensive braking system as standard. This includes:
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:
The BlueHDi engine incorporates leading-edge technology that eliminates:
The HDi engine's diesel particulate filter system (DPFS) traps and burns unburnt particles. This brings the particulate emissions to barely measurable levels, exceeding even future EU environmental standards.
The Citroën C5 Saloon is assembled at our ISO 14001-certified manufacturing facility in Rennes, France. We've made significant investment in technology to achieve the latest standards for environmental protection and sustainability.
