It’s a new flagship that features a bold crossover design, and the order books have now opened for the Citroen C5 X car lease range.
Citroen says their offering combines the appeal of an SUV, the status and elegance of a saloon, while having the practicality and versatility of an estate.
It’s available with plug-in hybrid petrol powertrains and prices start at £26,490.
The firm says that the new C5 X offering is a celebration not only of its past, but of its future too since it incorporates various design features from some of its iconic models, including the DS.
Contract hire Citroen C5 X
The contract hire Citroen C5 X has a choice of powertrains, including an ultra-efficient hybrid and a PureTech petrol engine.
The petrol versions include a 1.2-litre PureTech 130, or the 1.6-litre PureTech 180.
The hybrid features the PureTech 180 petrol unit with a 12.4kWh battery, and an 81.2kW electric motor.
The result is a combined power output of 225 hp with torque of 360Nm.
In full-electric mode, the Citroen C5 X is capable of 34 miles on battery power with emissions of just 30g/km.
