The Citroen C5 is a stylish saloon that offers a comfortable ride. Its powerful engines also help deliver an impressive performance and the overall impression is of a well built and well-designed car.
With a range of excellent engines, the Citroen C5 is a cheap car to own and run, particularly for the HDi engines which are fuel efficient. Of the diesels, the 2.0 litre HDi will produce 148 bhp and return around 67 mpg while delivering impressive levels of performance. The same engine also has a power output of 177bhp with economy of 64mpg. Sadly, the best performance levels used to come from the excellent 3.0 litre V6 HDi which is no longer available.
The Citroen C5 is one of the most stylish cars in its segment and with its hydractive suspension, it provides a smooth ride that is among the best in its class. It's also a very quiet car when travelling at speed, it easily matches its more prestigious rivals for screening out road noise from the cabin.
The cabin itself provides a lots of space, there's plenty of room for four adults and the car is a comfortable place to be for long distance journeys, particularly when travelling at speed on the motorway, for instance. The C5 is a rewarding car to drive with good performance on corners and accurate steering. The car also handles well around town and Citroen have obviously pushed the boat out to create a car that has lots of kit with high comfort levels, including air con fitted as standard. Some models also come with Bluetooth connectivity, dual zone climate control and alloy wheels. There's a good range of options too including having parking sensors fitted, tyre pressure monitoring and a leather steering wheel. Some models also come with Citroen's eTouch which will connect with emergency services should the vehicle be in an accident.
It's reassuring to know too that it's also one of the safest cars to drive, the C5 racked up five stars when crash tested in the Euro NCAP tests and among the features is electronic stability control. There's no doubt the Citroen C5 is a comfortable car with decent levels of handling and economy and it's also an attractive vehicle too to help make it worth a closer inspection.
