At the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, which is scheduled for the month of March, Citroen is going to unveil an all new member of the Citroen C5 family. We are talking about the Citroen C5 CrossTourer which is all set to debut in Geneva, alongside the new Citroen C4 Cactus. This estate version of the C5 will go head to head against the Volkswagen Passat Attack and the Skoda Octavia Scout.
The car would initially be introduced in a handful regions of Europe and will come with a range of diesel engines with power outputs in the range of 115 hp to 200 hp. All the engines will come matched to the Hydractive III+ suspension system except HDi 115 and e-HDi 115 Airdream models. These two deprived models will feature standard suspension which has been raised by 15 mm.
Perhaps the most important change brought to the C5 CrossTourer, when compared to the C5, is the retuned version of Citroen’s Hydractive III+ oleo-pneumatic suspension which configures the height of the vehicle in accordance with the speed. When the speed of the vehicle is below 6 mph, the suspension raises by 60 mm, between 6 mph and 25 mph the height increases to 40 mm, and when going at speeds between 25 mph and 43 mph it ups by 15 mm. At any speed above 43 mph, the system automatically lowers the height for reduced drag.
Complementing the revises suspension is the intelligent traction control system featuring new settings, unique design 18-inch alloy wheels, flared wheel arches, chrome door mirror caps, front ad rear brushed aluminum plates, and matt gray roof bars. The interior gets plenty of standard features including massage seat for the driver and full leather upholstery.
The C5 CrossTourer will starts from €31,950 in Europe. Citroen has no plans to bring the car to UK.
