Citroën has released first details of the ‘New Look’ restyled C5 which will debut publicly in September at the Paris motor show.

The model now has the latest Citroen ‘corporate’ front end design, with distinctive double chevron grille and boomerang shaped front and rear lights.

The interior has been updated and now offers chrome and lacquer highlights.

The C5 has a new lane departure warning system, that can detect an unintentional lane change on a motorway or fast road, when the indicator is not activated. A vibrating mechanism mounted in the driver’s seat is triggered on the side corresponding to the direction of vehicle drift to alert the driver.

Xenon dual function directional headlamps turn as the car corners.

Citroën is offering both cruise control and a speed limiter on the revised C5. The speed limiter allows the driver to adopt a relaxed driving style, and to respect the speed limits without constantly checking the speedometer. A kick-down function allows acceleration for overtaking or emergency manoeuvres.

The new model also has front and rear parking sensors with manoeuvres displayed on a multifunction screen.

Laminated side glass reduces noise levels as well as improves security. Safety is enhanced by the fitment of seven airbags, including one to protect the knee area, as well as the latest generation ESP.

The Citroën C5 is available with three petrol engines: two four-cylinder engines of 1.8i 16V and 2.0i 16V developing 117 and 143 bhp DIN, and a three-litre V6 24-valve engine with continuously variable valve timing, developing 210 bhp DIN and coupled to a new six-speed automatic gearbox.

Diesel alternatives are HDi common-rail engines developing 110 bhp and 138bhp, the latter with six-speed manual gearbox. A diesel particulate filter system is also offered.
