New Citroen C5
Surprises are in short supply within the latest C5 engine range with the majority of the units carried over from the outgoing car. The one exception is the 2.7-litre HDi V6 unit that debuted to considerable critical acclaim in the C6 executive saloon. The petrol line-up begins with the 127bhp 1.8-litre unit and ends with the 143bhp 2.0-litre but it’s the diesels that will account for the majority of sales. Citroen are offering HDi oil-burners of 1.6, 2.0 and 2.2 litre capacities respectively producing 110, 138 and 173bhp as well as the 208bhp V6 range-topper. Prices will range from £17,000 to £25,000 and the C5 will be avaliable from the 2nd April.
