Car reviews - Citroen - C5 - V6 Exclusive sedan
Stand Out Features
2 Sep 2001
ONLY a select few car-makers offer automatically-adjustable hydraulic suspension and the C5 makes good use of the Citroen Hydractive system by varying ride height depending on circumstances: low and road-hugging on the freeway and elevated when the going gets a little tougher. Two petrol engines - the 2.0-litre four-cylinder and the 3.0-litre V6 - plus a 2.0-litre turbo diesel are offered in Australia. The packaging follows traditional Citroen practices by offering comfort, versatility and ease of use in terms of luggage carrying abilities. The C5 also joins the Saab 9-5 in providing twin front sunvisors on each side to shield passengers from glare through front and side windows, and also offers black panel instrument illumination to eliminate all but the most vital instruments at night. On V6, the headlights switch on automatically at night, or if it begins to rain. Anti-glare external rearview mirrors are another V6 bonus.
