Citroen unveiled a new, revised version of its gorgeous C5 sedan and tourer, and seeing as the car still looks fabulous, visual changes are limited to the wheels. When you sell 400,000 units of a car in four years, that means the recipe is right. You don’t change that. You just tweak it. And that’s what Citroen has done here. You get some new wheels, upgraded equipments, and that’s about it.
For the exterior there is the 17-inch ‘Egée’ alloy wheels on Exclusive models and a new pearlescent body colour – ‘Guaranja Brown’, while on the inside Exclusive models are available with a new part-leather upholstery and new interior design components.
In terms of equipments, there’s a new Techno Pack that offers a new eMyWay satellite navigation system combined with a Connecting Box with jack socket, USB port and Bluetooth. Optionally you can also order a reversing camera for the system.
