Citroën Unveil All-New Flagship C5 X Model – Due in Ireland in March 2022.
Citroën Unveil All-New Flagship C5 X Model.
Citroën have unveiled their all-new flagship C5 X model which will sit in the D-segment and aims to disrupt this rather traditional large car division. Featuring an original design that combines the elegance of a saloon, the dynamism of an estate and the elevated stance of an SUV, the C5 X ensures that a choice is no longer required between comfort and style in this segment. This new model, available in both petrol and plug-in hybrid versions, will go on sale in Ireland in March 2022.
On the outside, the C5 X exudes confidence with a distinctive modern and innovative body style. The striking fastback silhouette and V-shaped front/rear light signature offers an assertive stance, while the long bonnet with fluid, aerodynamic lines and high waistline demonstrates distinction and dynamism. Traditional Citroën practicality is also evident from the easy opening tailgate, wide loading area and cavernous boot space of 545-litres, which increases to 1,640-litres when the rear seats are folded down. The C5 X features an elevated stance, thanks to increased ground clearance and large-diameter 19” wheels allowing for a higher driving position with greater safety and visibility. The C5 X stands at 4,805mm long, 1,865mm wide and 1,485mm high, placing it at the heart of the D-segment, while a wheelbase of 2,785mm ensures spectacular interior space and comfort for driver and passengers alike.
Inside, spaciousness and practicality are evident all round as Citroën sets yet another benchmark for comfort. Advanced Comfort seating, and uncluttered dashboard design and a spacious rear cabin invites rest and relaxation. Roominess is further enhanced by the brightness of the 360-degree glass area around the cabin, including quarter windows, and a large opening glass sunroof that allows additional light to flood in as required. Ride comfort is further increased through enhanced acoustic insulation and Citroën Advanced Comfort™ suspension, which is designed to recreate the iconic magic carpet effect. The C5 X also introduces an all-new infotainment interface for Citroën that combines a new 12” HD infotainment interface, natural voice recognition system, customisable widget-based display, 4 USB Type C sockets and wireless smartphone charging. The feeling of well-being on board is even further increased by additional technologies such as the extended Head Up Display and Highway Driver Assist, which combines Adaptive Cruise Control with a Stop & Go feature and Lane Keeping Assist to provide level 2 semi-autonomous driving.
The C5 X will provide an offering suitable for all uses, in addition to a petrol engine offering, a Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) version will deliver 225bhp with the possibility of driving more than 50km in full electric mode up to 135km/h. A fully electric drivetrain is also planned within the next two years for the C5 X.
Irish pricing and specification options will be announced soon. Visit www.citroen.ie for further information.
