Citroën C5

Award-winning engine

The CITROËN C5 is available in two variants - Exclusive 1.6L THP 155 Automatic (petrol) and Dynamique 1.6L e-HDi 115 EGS (diesel) - to complement different lifestyle needs and preferences.

Mated to a fully automatic gearbox, the CITROËN C5 Exclusive variant is fitted with an award-winning 1.6L turbo-charged petrol engine, winner of the International Engine of the Year award (1.6L – 1.8L category) for seven consecutive years from 2007 – 2013. The engine complements the CITROËN C5 chassis by offering superb flexibility in use with a maximum torque of 240 Nm available from 1,400 rpm. It is also remarkably lively at low engine speeds and delivers a power of 156bhp at 6000rpm.

Most advanced and world famous Hydractive III+ Suspension

The CITROËN C5 features the Hydractive III+ Suspension, CITROËN’S most advanced suspension system to date. Its evolutionary technology offers a whole new standard in driving comfort. Based on the world famous CITROËN invention of hydropneumatic suspension, Hydractive III+ also includes CITROËN’s trademark self-levelling feature that guarantees a constant ride height regardless of the load or number of passengers, thus overcoming the usual compromise between ride comfort and handling.

The suspension constantly monitors speed and road conditions. At speeds above 110km/h, it lowers the car to optimise stability and fuel economy. On rough roads, it raises the car for increased clearance and comfort. At the touch of a button you can also rev up your driving experience with ‘sport mode’. The system ensures optimised driving pleasure and truly exceptional comfort.

Metallic Suspension

The metallic suspension in the Dynamique variant takes full advantage of the CITROËN C5's sophisticated running gear and offers the driver a better feel of the road. A winning combination based on CITROËN expertise, with a double wishbone layout at the front and multilink set-up at the rear, the C5 strikes an excellent balance between comfort and road holding.

Stop&Start System with e-HDi micro-hybrid Technology

Fitted with a Stop&Start system and a sophisticated EGS gearbox, the CITROËN C5's diesel variant features the e-HDi micro-hybrid technology and achieves an impressive 4.6 litres/100km on the combined cycle and CO2 emission of only 120g/km. This system shuts the engine and restarts it instantly whenever the vehicle comes to a stop or when decelerating from 8 km/h. The main comfort functions and assistance functions naturally remain available during the STOP phase. This innovation cuts carbon emissions by more than 5g/km and fuel consumption by up to 15%.

Airdream Eco-label

The CITROËN C5 e-HDi is part of the Airdream range that features the Stop&Start system with e-HDi micro-hybrid technology. The overall engine efficiency is accomplished by an innovative Twin-Scroll turbocharger that optimally pairs exhaust gases to ensure maximum flow onto the turbine and a high-pressure direct petrol injection system that improves combustion. This use of technology is the key to a remarkable balance between performance and fuel consumption.

Combined (litres/100km) CO2 emission (g/km)
C5 1.6L e-HDi 115 (diesel) 4.6 120
C5 1.6L THP 155 (petrol) 6.4 148

Fixed-Centre Steering Wheel

The driving position, which resembles a cockpit, is fully focused on the driver, and features the signature fixed-centre control steering wheel. Frequently used driving controls (speed limiter/cruise control) and comfort functions (radio, telephone, central screen controls, etc) are within easy reach of the driver, thus improving ergonomics and enhances driving comfort.

Superb Aerodynamics

The aerodynamic profile of the CITROËN C5 alludes to the car's dynamic qualities and superb road handling.

Unique Concave Rear Window

Unique on its own, the CITROËN C5's concave rear window clears off water quickly and allows for a larger loading aperture to the 4,670cm boot.

LED Daytime Running Lights

Recognised as one of the best-styled models in its segment, the CITROËN C5 has been further improved. The changes enable the car to keep all its character while making it immediately visible and recognisable on the road. LEDs have been added under the headlamps. Active day and night and combined with a light guide, they strengthen the car’s light signature. The rear lights get a new “Dark Crystal” treatment with clear glass in the central section.

Luxurious Ambience

The CITROËN C5’s interior spoil the senses. The cabin is softly illuminated by ambient light. A tranquil silence is achieved by tripled-sealed doors combined with acoustic windshield glass. Total thermal comfort is provided by Automatic Climatic air-conditioning and a soft diffusion system that creates a uniform blanket of air in the car.

Electric-operated Driver Seat With 2 Memory Settings

The electric-operated driver seat with 2 memory settings assumes your preferred driving position once the key enters the ignition. The Exclusive variant also features a ‘Welcome seat’ function to allow easier access to the cabin. Upon unlocking the vehicle, the seat will automatically retract by 50mm to allow for easy access. Once the ignition is turned on, the seat returns itself to the memorised position.

Cruise Control & Speed Limiter

Programmable cruise control with speed limiter also allows drivers to pre-set cruising and top speeds for added safety and convenience on the open road.

Informative Display Unit

A central display unit makes a variety of important information visible to all passengers. For example: the date and time, outside temperature and a graphical representation of parking assistance. At the same time, a screen on the overhead console displays an illustration symbolising the car, its five seats and the seatbelt warnings on start-up.

Parking Brake & Hill-start Assist

The Exclusive variant also includes the Automatic Electric Parking Brake with Hill-Start Assist that maintains the vehicle’s position for up to two seconds after the brake pedal is released. This gives the driver ample time to move his foot from brake to accelerator without slipping backwards or forwards on a slope.

Child Safety

For those travelling with children, peace of mind is ensured with the installation of ISOFIX anchor points for up to three seats: two on either side of the rear seat and one for the front passenger seat. The vehicle is also fitted with four one-touch power windows and an electric child safety lock for the doors and rear windows.


The CITROËN C5's Exclusive variant is equipped with a total of 7 airbags while the Dynamique variant has 6. The driver and front passenger are protected by front and side airbags, with deployment pressure and volume correlated with the severity of the impact. The driver's airbag is designed to always deploy at the right angle, thanks to the fixed-centred steering system. At the same time, a knee airbag, standard on the Exclusive variant, provides improved protection for the driver's shins and knees by limiting impact with the steering column, which retracts by 65 mm. Two curtain airbags provide head protection for passengers at the front and rear.

Anti-lock Braking System & Electronic Stability Programme

Among the features that earned the safety ratings are electronic driving aids: Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) that prevents wheels from locking and Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) that maintains the vehicle’s attitude and trajectory when rounding corners.

Front and rear parking sensors

A parking space gap sensor assesses whether an available space can accommodate the vehicle while front and rear parking assistance help the driver manoeuvre into it smoothly. Its all-round obstacle detection (front and rear parking sensors) with parking space gap measurement makes parking easier, even in tight or challenging spaces.
