New Citroens hit Brussells

Australia-bound: Redesigned C5 sedan arrives here mid-year.

New C5 sedan, plus C8 and Nemo Combi people-movers, emerge from Citroen at Brussels

23 Jan 2008

NO FEWER than three new Citroens have made surprise debut appearances at the Brussels motor show, which opened on January 16.

Heading the trio of new French models is the redesigned C5 sedan, which arrives in Australia in mid-2008 and is claimed to offer class-leading cabin space. Fitted with running gear from the C6 flagship, the C5 will be available for the first time with either Hydractive 3 Plus or steel-spring suspension.

Also debuting at Brussels, the new Nemo Combi is available in lifestyle-oriented XTR guise and will arrive here in the third quarter of this year. The small five-seater van measures just 3.96 metres long, has a sub-10m turning circle, the same 2.5 cubic-metre load volume as the van version with the rear bench removed, and rear asymmetric swing doors plus one or two large sliding side doors.

Finally, the new version of Citroen’s largest passenger van, the C8, also debuted in Brussels, but will be available to Australians only via the Citroen DriveEurope tourist lease program.
