New models - Citroen - C5 - SX HDi Estate

C5 diesel wagon scores new powertrain

Better bet: Citroen's C5 SX HDi Estate now uses a hi-tech 2.0-litre diesel engine.

Citroen blesses its popular C5 wagon with a new diesel engine and a six-speed auto

1 Aug 2006

CITROEN Australia has seen fit to power its popular large C5 Estate with the same all-new turbo-diesel powerplant and six-speed automatic transmission that graces the C5 sedan.

Bringing more performance and flexibility and lower emissions than the 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine it replaces, the upgraded C5 SX HDi Estate's new 2.0-litre HDi 138 16-valve oil-burner employs a variable-displacement turbocharger with overboost and a particulate filter to produce 100kW and 320Nm at 2000rpm, with 340Nm available at full engine load.

Mated to the C5 HDi sedan's new Aisin AM6 six-speed auto, which at 92kg is claimed to be similar in weight and dimensions to the 4HP20 four-speed it replaces (and which remains standard in base 2.0-litre petrol C5 variants), the new diesel is claimed to make the C5 HDi wagon smoother and more economical than the 2.2-litre/four-speed auto combination it replaces.

Priced at $51,990, the updated C5 SX HDi Estate also gains active Xenon headlights with washers, front and rear parking sensors, colour-coded bumpers and side protection mouldings, automatic folding door mirrors and a self-dipping interior rear-view mirror as standard. These are in addition to the powered leather seats and fully automatic suspension previously offered as standard.

The improved C5 SX HDi Estate joins the four-cylinder petrol C5 SX 2.0 16V Estate, which is priced at the same $41,990 as the C5 SX 2.0 16V sedan. Both entry-level C5 bodystyles continue to offer cloth trim as standard, while leather trim comes as standard fitment in the C5 SX HDi sedan ($49,990) and the flagship C5 3.0 V6 sedan ($55,990).
