Safety

Halogen lights

The Citroën C5 halogen headlamps help you anticipate bends in the road by covering an angle of up to 75° on both sides of the car; helping you to see and to be seen.

Xenon headlamps

At twice the brightness of halogen lights; Xenon Dual-Function Directional headlamps provide exceptional visibility at night and in poor weather conditions. The lights follow the steering angle of your car and reach out to 105° on each side so that you can see the road ahead sooner. There's also daytime running lights to help make you more visible on the road.

Advanced safety braking

On board the Citroën C5 is an innovative and comprehensive braking system with four large vented disc brakes. The ABS function adjusts braking pressure electronically to stop the wheels locking while Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) spreads braking power evenly to all four wheels.

ESP

The Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) keeps your C5 stable if it slips when cornering and coupled to a traction control (ASR) system that immediately brakes the drive wheels in the event of skidding they help you keep control even in the most difficult of driving conditions. 

ITC

Unique to Citroën; Intelligent Traction Control (ITC) provides grip on slippery surfaces to help your car travel through snow, black ice and rain. ITC analyses factors such as the slope of the road, type of snow and ice, and adjusts the slippage of the right and left wheels accordingly.

LDWS

Our innovative Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) helps detect, and limits the impact of drowsiness at the wheel. It monitors any unintentional lane changes at speeds in excess of 50mph and vibrates the driver’s seat on the side of the drift, prompting you to get back on course.

Airbags

Passenger safety is always at the forefront of our mind at Citroën and that's why you'll find up to nine airbags in the Citroën C5 Saloon. With airbags in the front, side, knee and curtain as standard, and two extra airbags available in the back. 

Body structure

The Citroën C5's body structure has been designed to soak up impact energy in the event of a collision while two impact absorbers at the front dissipate energy in the event of an impact. High body stiffness provides class leading protection in any high-speed frontal impact. 

Tyre pressure monitor

The tyre pressure monitor continuously checks tyre pressure. If pressure is too low, the system emits a visual and audible warning.

Citroën localised emergency call

Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the Citroën localised emergency call service enables emergency services to save previous time by locating your car quickly and easily.
