2008 All-New Citroen C5

Citroen has updated its mid-size C5 for 2008, revealing a very sleek, modern and neat looking executive sedan and estate. This C-segment vehicle features Citroen’s air suspension dubbed Hydractive 3 Plus, offering self-leveling via continuously self-adjusting spring and variable damping rates (Sport and Comfort). The high-spec C5 will have NaviDrive system i.e. GPS navigation plus phone function and audio with display interface on a 7 inch LCD.

The new Citroen C5 is longer and wider than its predecessor, powered via its front axle (FWD) by options of two petrol engines and four HDi turbodiesels. Mostly for the European market, base diesel model is the 1.6 HDi with 110hp, followed by a 2.0L HDi with 138hp. Next up is the 2.2L twin-turbo HDi with 173hp, while the range-topping oil burner will be the 2.7L V6 twin-turbo VGT HDi with 208hp.

Petrol 4-cylinder blocks include a 127hp 1.8L and a 2.0L with 143hp. These are the most probable engine options for the Malaysian market, should local distributor Brookland Motors decide to launch this all-new C5 next year.
