Suspension

Hydractive 3+ suspension
If you really want to enjoy a more unique ride the Hydractive 3+ is our most advanced suspension technology to date. The Hydractive 3+ suspension makes for a safe, comfortable ride by adapting automatically to road conditions and your driver input. It will keep your car at a constant height, regardless of the load and lets you choose between a soft and firm stiffness setting. For an even more dynamic and energetic ride choose the sport mode!
Metal suspension
The Citroën C5 metallic suspension is both responsive and comfortable and gives a more direct road feel for sportier style driving.
