2011 CitroŽn C5 midsize Saloon and Tourer versions
Styling and technical upgrades with enhanced engines
And new eTouch Emergency & Assistance safety system

LED in the headlights, for a stronger visual identity.

2 Nov. 2010: CitroŽnís midsize C5 model has been updated and refreshed for the 2011 model year with styling enhancements and technology upgrades. The new CitroŽn C5 range will be available in the UK from 1st November, 2010

Available in the UK since the beginning of this month, the new features include a new LED light signature, darker tinted rear light clusters, re-homologated engines and the introduction of the Companyís new eTouch Emergency & Assistance System.

Darker tinted rear light clusters.

These upgrades apply to both saloon and tourer versions of the upper medium (D-segment) family model and are available from this month.

The visual changes to the C5 range remain discreet, since the model's elegance proved its popularity in most markets, whilst the efficiency and equipment upgrades tend to strengthen the modelís technological credentials.

Standard specification across both the C5 saloon and tourer ranges include the specially designed LEDs which have been neatly integrated into the headlights, giving the model an even stronger visual identity, while the rear light clusters benefit from a new ĎDark Crystalí treatment with clear glass in the central section.

C5 Tourer: sporty volume player.

The headlamps retain all their existing functionality, including the standard cornering lights (across the range, UK specifications).

 Engines

The CitroŽn C5 range now benefits from a full Euro 5 compliant engine line-up with the introduction of the 1.6HDi 110hp Euro 5 to replace the Euro 4 version.

The 1.6i THP 155hp petrol engine - available in saloon form with VTR+ NAV trim - and the 3.0HDi V6 240hp Auto Exclusive (saloon and tourer) have been re-homologated and now offer improved fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions.

C5 Tourer boot (trunk): spacious, practical and elegant.

Combined cycle fuel economy increases from 39.8mpg (UK mpg, equivalent to 33.14 US mpg, 7.10 litres/100 km, 14.09 km/litre Ė conversion based on autopressnews.com figures), to 42.2mpg (35.14 US mpg, 6.69 litres/100 km, 14.94 km/litre) and 38.2mpg (31.81 US mpg, 7.39 litres/100 km, 13.52 km/litre) to 39.2mpg (32.64 US mpg, 7.21 litres/100 km, 13.88 km/litre) respectively.

CO2 emissions are also down 14g/km and 6g/km respectively, resulting in reduced BIK (benefit-in-kind) tax rates for both models (down 3 bands for the THP 155 and down 2 bands for the HDi V6). The first year VED (vehicle excise duty) for the THP 155 model changes from band H to band G.

 eTouch

2011 Citroen C5 console

eTouch system: standard on all C5 Exclusive models.

Standard equipment on all C5 Exclusive models includes now CitroŽnís new eTouch Emergency & Assistance System. This service automatically or manually makes emergency calls and allows manual assistance calls - using a built-in SIM card - for a rapid response in the event of an accident or if the car is immobilised.

CitroŽnís eTouch system also allows drivers to consult information online at their ĎMyCITROENí personal space, which enables them to monitor their vehicleís maintenance requirements and to receive advice on improving fuel economy. These services are free and available 24-7.
