Citroen C5 X — Citroen’s cross-bred wagon

Riley Riley

Despite poor sales Citroen is not taking a backward step with the release of yet another new model the C5 X.

Based on the Peugeot 5008, it’s a cross between a wagon and and SUV, which makes it the equivalent of the Subaru Outback.

It will be offered in just the one highly equipped model, with a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine and eight-speed auto.

The engine produces 133kW at 5500 revs and 250Nm of torque from 1650 revs.

With the long bonnet of a sedan, low boot lip of a wagon and the elevated driving position of an SUV the car represents a different proposition to the C5 Aircross.

C5 X also brings the latest version of Citroën’s Advanced Comfort program, optimising comfort and practicality.

This new suspension system features an ‘ultra-comfort’ setting, while providing driving pleasure thanks to active and continuous adjustments to filter out imperfections on the road.

The crossover is defined by Citroën’s V-shaped light signature front and rear.

Citroen’s Kate Gillis said there is no doubt that the Citroën C5 X will further expand the brand’s growth opportunities in Australia.

“Truly encompassing the brand’s design DNA, the C5 X will appeal to the discerning Australian consumer keen to travel in absolute comfort and stand out in style on the roads,” she said.

The all-new Citroën C5 X is set to arrive in Australian showrooms in the fourth quarter of this year.

Further information, including specification and pricing, will be available closer to launch.
