Citroen is relaunching the C5 as a plug-in hybrid crossover. The C5 is now celebrating its comeback in the upper-middle-class as a close technical relative of the Peugeot 508 and the DS 9, under the name Citroen C5 X.

Compared to conventional representatives of the D-segment, the body is higher, which means a little more ground clearance and a more elevated seating position. With a length of 4.8 meters (width: 1.87 m, height: 1.49 m) it plays in the league of its predecessor. The wheelbase is 2.79 meters. A tailgate provides access to the 545 litres trunk. With the rear seat folded down, the trunk is up to 1640 litres.

At the market launch in early 2022, the C5 X will only be available as a plug-in hybrid: a gasoline engine with 180 hp and an electric motor, which generate a system output of 225 hp. The Citroen C5 X plug-in hybrid promises an electric range of more than 50 kilometres from the 12.4 kWh battery and an electric top speed of 135 km / h.

In terms of instrumentation and infotainment, Citroen has taken a step forward. There is a 12-inch touchscreen in the centre on high-end versions and the head-up display is now projected through the windshield; four USB ports, a mirror screen for smartphones, a head-up display, voice control and wireless charging for mobile phones.

For comfort, Citroen C5 X plug-in hybrid relies on the tried and tested recipe for super comfortable seats and the active suspension (Advanced Comfort suspension), which can be adjusted in three stages ("Normal", "Sport" and Comfort").
