The Citroen C5 X is a brand new luxury crossover that will join Citroen’s line-up in the UK early in 2022
The Citroen C5 X – A Unique Prospect
The C5 X is a unique prospect that merges prominent features of SUVs, saloons and estate cars into a brand new crossover design.
Basing some styling on the C-Xperience concept first shown at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, the C5 X is a stylish and modern looking crossover that exudes luxury.
The front has a commanding presence thanks to the low wide nose, which features prominent double chevrons in the centre. The chevrons splay outwards towards the brand new V-shaped lighting signature, which features slim LED daytime running lights. The long bonnet also features a distinctive hump in the centre for a heightened sense of sophistication.
At the back, the C5 X features two spoilers, one at the top and one at the bottom of the rear glass. The LED lights mimic those at the front set in a V-shaped arrangement, while the double chevron and Citroen badge sit on the hatch boot door.
Add to this distinctively SUV styling scattered around the exterior, like the black plastic-clad rear bumper and wheel arches, and it is clear to see the appeal of Citroen’s unique blending of different car types.
The C5 X has an elevated stance which helps improve visibility. Large wheels fitted with 19 tyres gives drivers a higher seating position for better safety and visibility. Plus with increased ground clearance compared to a traditional saloon also increases the SUV stylings.
The Citroen C5 X prioritises passenger comfort to be the ultimate expression of relaxation and wellbeing. As such, the Citroen says the cabin has lounge-like luxuries. Refined materials heighten the sense of luxury, creating an inviting cabin environment.
Citroen has also paid particular attention to reducing cabin noise. It uses acoustic laminated front and rear windows to help provide exceptional insulation from the outside.
Meanwhile, the seats feature Citroen’s impressive Advanced Comfort seats with special padding to enhance passenger comfort. So if you are looking for a cocooning drive, the C5 X could be the model for you.
The C5 X also comes with Citroen’s Advanced Comfort suspension. This unique Citroen system adapts to help to smooth out undulations in the road for more relaxing journeys. It aims to achieve the ‘magic carpet’ drive of its historic saloons in a more modern crossover package.
Space for Everything
At 4,805mm long and with a 2,785mm wheelbase, the C5 X offers impressive space so everyone can sit back and relax. But it doesn’t stop there, as it also benefits from a 541-litre boot which gives you the room to pack in a whole host of luggage.
For added practicality, you can fold the rear seats forward to create a whopping 1,640-litres. This is enough space to load a full-size washing machine which proves the car’s incredible ability to adapt to your needs.
A hands-free tailgate is also available, enabling you to load up without needing your hands to open the boot.
Inside the cabin, the Citroen C5 X comes equipped with the latest in-car technology to ensure you never miss out. A brand new 12-inch high definition infotainment touchscreen dominates the minimalist dash and offers control of a whole host of functions. Yet, for ease of use, sitting below the screen comes heating and ventilation controls.
When it comes to connectivity, as well as smartphone mirroring, you get the benefit of wireless charging and four USB sockets, which all help make staying in touch on the go that bit easier.
You can also choose to have an advanced 21-inch head-up display in the new C5 X which puts all essential driving information directly in your line of vision.
For convenience, the on board systems will receive over-the-air updates to ensure that they are always working at their best without requiring any downtime for manual updates.
Powering the Way
As yet few details on the exact engine line-up have been revealed. However, we do know that a diesel engine will not be an option, but a plug-in hybrid powertrain will be available.
Details on the plug-in hybrid version are sparse but it will deliver 225hp with silent start-up and offers drivers short emission-free journeys. This means you can reduce your fuel consumption on short journeys, yet still get the freedom of hassle-free long journeys.
As you would expect the Citroen C5 X comes with extensive equipment to help keep you and your loved ones safe. With level two autonomous technology the C5 X blends the likes of adaptive cruise control with lane-keeping assistance to help provide the protection you need on every journey.
You also get the benefit of convenience boosting features like long-range blind spot detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Top 360 Vision which provides an all-round view to make manoeuvres easier.
