Unlike the 508, the Citroen C5 can't afford to get another mid-life facelift. Instead, they are updating it with the usual design tricks. The selection of wheels has been updated, with the Confort models getting 17-inch alloys while the Hydractive Exclusive offers 18-inch alloys. Meanwhile, the choice of paint finishes now includes Moka Brown.
Useful technologies have also been added into the mix, like the 7-inch touchscreen display, for example. As well as making the dash look less cluttered, this new tablet screen also includes a touch-sensitive navigation system with 3D views, a multimedia player, USB audio streaming, telephone hands-free function and vehicle settings.
The C5 sedan with the BlueHDI 150 engine starts at a very reasonable €31,400 after a €9,400 discount, while the 180 PS model is €35,000. Even if you get the most expensive model with the trick suspension and bi-Xenon headlights, you're still not going to spend more than €40,000.
