The 2021 Citroen C5 has been teased, ahead of its unveiling on April 12.

The vehicle – which spy shots and teasers suggest will take the form of a high-riding, SUV-inspired liftback – is expected to be underpinned by the Stellantis group's EMP2 platform, currently shared with Peugeot, DS and a range of other brands.

Petrol, diesel, and hybrid powertrain options are also likely, with the 1.6-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel offerings from the Peugeot 5008 slated to carry over.

Little else is known about the C5's specifications, however the new video previews its design, revealing a pronounced front-end with large X-shaped LED headlights.

A spokesperson for the manufacturer in Australia was unable to comment on the prospect of local availability. However, CarAdvice understands the new model has not been ruled out for our market.

The French brand currently sells the C3 hatchback, C3 Aircross SUV, and C5 Aircross SUV in Australia, however has struggled in recent years to maintain consistent sales performance.

Throughout 2020 Citroen sold just 203 cars Down Under. For reference, the hyper-exclusive Ferrari supercar marque sold 205 cars over the same period, despite its cheapest offering starting from $409,888 plus on-road costs.
