New Citroën C5 X cleverly combines the modernity and appeal of an SUV, the elegance and status of a saloon, and the versatility and practicality of a station wagon. Available with efficient petrol and Plug-in Hybrid powertrains, prices for New C5 X start from just £26,490 OTR. First customer deliveries are expected late spring 2022.
New C5 X is both a celebration of Citroën’s past, and a look into the future for the brand. A new flagship model for Citroën, C5 X incorporates design features from iconic models, such as the DS, CX, and XM, into a new silhouette that sits at the pinnacle of Citroën’s current product portfolio.
In addition to its head-turning looks, New C5 X offers unrivalled comfort thanks to the Citroën Advanced Comfort® Programme, featuring Citroën Advanced Comfort® Active Suspension and Advanced Comfort® seats, while serenity inside is assured by the multitude of driver safety aids and new 12-inch HD touchscreen with natural voice recognition.
New C5 X is available with a choice of three trim levels ‘Sense Plus’, ‘Shine’ and ‘Shine Plus’, each with the option of Plug-in Hybrid or petrol power.
From launch, customers have a choice of PureTech petrol or ultra-efficient Hybrid models featuring Citroën’s advanced Plug-in Hybrid technology. Petrol-powered variants are available with either a 1.2-litre PureTech 130, or the more powerful 1.6-litre PureTech 180 engine. All models sold exclusively with a smooth eight-speed automatic gearbox.
Ideal for fleet and business users, New C5 X Hybrid models combine the PureTech 180 petrol engine with an 81.2kW electric motor and a 12.4kWh Lithium-ion battery pack, for a combined power output of 225hp and 360Nm of torque. Capable of up to 34 miles in full-electric mode, New C5 X Hybrid models emit just 30g/km of CO2 – making them eligible for an 11% Benefit-in-Kind taxation rate.
Hybrid variants come with three driving modes – Electric, Hybrid and Sport. Electric mode gives up to 34 miles of zero emissions range, while Hybrid offers the best of both worlds. Sport maximises performance from both the electric motor and the petrol engine. Drivers can also adjust the regenerative braking mode in New C5 X, while an ë-Save function allows drivers to reserve electric range for later in the journey – when arriving in city centres or urban areas, for example.
New C5 X is available in ‘Sense Plus’, ‘Shine’ and ‘Shine Plus’ trim from launch with petrol and Hybrid powertrains, and prices starting from only £26,490 OTR for the lead-in ‘Sense Plus’ petrol model.
‘Sense Plus’ versions feature a wealth of standard equipment as standard, including 19-inch ‘Aero-X’ alloy wheels and LED headlights. Inside, ‘Sense Plus’ models boast an ‘Urban Grey’ ambiance, with part leather-effect covered Advanced Comfort® seats, whilst infotainment comes in the form of a 10-inch central touchscreen that incorporates Connected 3D Navigation, wireless smartphone mirroring functionality and a Hi-Fi speaker system. To aid parking, ‘Sense Plus’ models also feature front and rear parking sensors, and a reversing camera.
New C5 X Hybrid versions all come as standard with a 7.4kW single-phase on-board charger, a Mode 3 charging cable with a Type 2 connector, as well as remote temperature pre-conditioning. New C5 X Hybrid also introduces a custom user interface that helps drivers get the most out of the Hybrid system – showcasing remaining range and the driving mode in use. An elegant ‘frameless’ rear view mirror with electrochrome dimming – which reduces dazzle from vehicles at night – is also standard on all Hybrid variants.
‘Shine’ models add (over and above ‘Sense Plus’), stylish satin chrome trim on the rear bumper, while the interior features a ‘Metropolitan Grey’ ambience with black ‘Paloma’ leather and ‘Isabella’ black and ‘Nixon’ grey leather-effect Advanced Comfort® seats. The multi-function steering wheel is heated, while the door handles, front foot wells and driver instrument panel all feature subtle LED lighting.
Significantly, the 10-inch central touchscreen is upgraded to a 12-inch unit on ‘Shine’ models, while drivers also benefit from extended head-up display technology and wireless smartphone charging. Radar Controlled Active Safety Brake is also standard, helping improve safety still further.
Range-topping ‘Shine Plus’ versions then add extra tinted quarter-panel windows at the rear, with delicate detailing. Inside, ‘Shine Plus’ models sport a ‘Hype Black’ ambience, featuring black ‘Paloma’ leather with a perforated chevron design on the Advanced Comfort® seats. Both the driver and front passenger seats are electrically operated and heated, while comfort is further improved via acoustically insulated front and rear windows, along with a tinted gloss appearance. A motorised tailgate enhances convenience, while safety is assured via extended blind spot detection and Visiopark® 360 – featuring a 360-degree reversing camera.
