Citroen sets UK launch date for new C5

Citroen's new C5 saloon will go on sale in the UK on April 2. The tourer version will follow in the summer.

Both guises will come with a choice of six engines and two suspension options.

Xavier Duchemin, managing director of Citroën UK, said “Our customers want and deserve the highest standards in comfort, reliability, performance and style and with the new Citroën C5 we have dedicated ourselves to deliver those qualities at unprecedented levels.”

When the tourer goes on sale in the summer, it will a feature motorised tailgate system and automatic operation for opening and closing the boot. Drivers can even set the required elevation.

Other features include shopping bag hooks on the boot side walls, side storage nets, a luggage cover blind and a cargo net with ceiling hooks for the transportation of large items. A clever dual-function flashlight mounted into the wall of the boot functions as a boot light but it can also be removed and used as a hand-held torch.

Prices are yet to be announced.
