Combining the best of three worlds, C5 X conveys the elegance of a saloon, the dynamism and versatility of an estate and the modern, robust appearance of an SUV.

New C5 X will be available with a choice of petrol and plug-in hybrid versions with first models now available to test drive for the upcoming 231-registration period.

With its front end sporting the V-shaped lighting signature represented in Citroën’s current range, the LED headlights and daytime running lights feature a unique lighting signature. The extended bonnet, the high belt line and the rear wheel flare give it distinction, dynamism and sturdiness; all part of the shape language of Citroën’s larger vehicles. C5 X’s body style is muscular with optimised aerodynamics in mind to reduce fuel consumption. Its streamlined profile draws inspiration from aeronautics with the 3D LED rear lights stretching around the vehicle for increased efficiency.

The upper spoiler and the extremely fluid rear window give the vehicle a powerful and dynamic character. The glossy black lower spoiler provides support and stability when braking, an aesthetic and useful solution which has already featured in many other Citroën body styles – from CX and C6 to XM. The C5 X will be available in 6 different colour options with Amazonite Grey being introduced to the colour options.

Inside, it is evident that roominess was one of Citroën’s main concerns when designing C5 X. In the front, the uncluttered horizontal dashboard provides a vast and open living space. The generous and welcoming space in the back offers comfortable width and generous headroom to ensure that the rear passengers are seated comfortably and can enjoy their journey. Brightness on board the C5 X is enhanced by the 360-degree windows around the car, including rear quarter panel windows. To further enhance on-board comfort and make travelling in the C5 X PHEV as relaxing as possible, particular attention has been paid to acoustics, with acoustic laminated front and rear windows providing exceptional insulation from outside noise.

C5 X is fully aligned with the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, offering Advanced Comfort Seats in the front and rear. This innovative system involves a high-density sheet and 15mm thicker foam. C5 X is equipped as standard with Citroën Advanced Comfort suspension, a Citroën innovation which, by filtering out all obstacles, from potholes and ditches to speed bumps and other road unevenness, ensures a smooth journey, as if you were on a “flying carpet”. The plug-in hybrid version of C5 X takes comfort even further with Citroën active Advanced Comfort® suspension, offering continuous active control over the suspension.

In terms of engines, the Petrol offering for C5 X introduces a 1.2 litre Puretech 130hp engine paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Additionally, C5 X will also arrive in a 1.6 litre Puretech 180hp engine also featuring an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Plug-in Hybrid version features a 1.6 litre petrol engine paired with an 80kW electric motor to deliver a combined power output of 225hp. The 13.2kWh battery offers a possible driving range of 55 km in 100% electric mode. The Plug-in Hybrid version also includes handy features including delayed charging and cabin pre-conditioning via the MyCitroën app. A full charge can be completed in 2 hours using a wall box connection.

Pricing for the New C5 X starts from €36,990 or from €359 per month with 2.9% APR finance.
