Citroen C5 Aircross falls short with ANCAP, Mercedes and Peugeot achieve five stars

The recently-released Citroen C5 Aircross SUV has scored four stars out of five in the latest round of ANCAP results, due to a missing piece of semi-autonomous safety technology. Aimed at the Mazda CX-5 and Toyota RAV4 in the hotly-contested mid-sized SUV space, the C5 Aircross's four-star safety rating is down to a 'marginal' result in 'vulnerable road user' (cyclist and pedestrian) protection...

2019 Citroen C5 Aircross revealed for Europe

Citroen has revealed the European-market C5 Aircross, following the SUV's global debut at last year's Shanghai motor show. Serving as the French brand's new flagship model, the C5 Aircross is based on the PSA Group's EMP2 modular architecture, which currently serves as the basis of models like the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso, along with the Peugeot 3008 and 5008, amongst others...

2015-16 Citroen C5, DS4, DS5 recalled for starter motor fix - UPDATE

Citroen has issued a recall for 84 examples its C5, DS4 and DS5 models sold between May 2015 and August 2016 over concerns a faulty connection to the starter motor could cause a short circuit. The French manufacturer reports the 12-Volt connection lug for the start motor may be fitted incorrectly, and could touch a metal component...

Citroen C5 Aircross sketched ahead of Shanghai debut

The upcoming Citroen C5 Aircross SUV has been teased in sketches ahead of its debut at this year's Shanghai motor show in April. Released shortly after the presentation of the C-Aircross concept in Geneva - which is believed to preview the SUV-styled replacement for the C3 Picasso MPV - the renderings of the C5 Aircross closely resemble the Citroen Aircross concept that was shown at the 2015 Shanghai motor show...

2016 Citroen C5 to be the last offered in Australia: 62 cars to honour iconic suspension system

If you thought last year's Finale special represented the end of Citroen's C5 in Australia, think again. Instead, the 2016 Citroen C5 will be the last of the line for the Australian market, with the company's local distributor today finally confirming its impending retirement...

Next Citroen C4 and C5 could morph into SUVs - report

The successors to the current Citroen C4 and C5 could morph into crossover vehicles, according to a new report out of the UK. With the current C4 hatch and C5 closing in on the end of their production runs, well outclassed by the likes of the C4 Picasso, C4 Cactus and the new C3, it seems Citroen may take a more unorthodox approach to the next generation of both...

Citroen C5 successor may not be sold outside of China

Due to shifting market trends and falling sales, the next-generation Citroen C5 may turn out to be a China-only model. Linda Jackson, Citroen's CEO, told Automotive News Europe that "in China there is clearly a requirement for a C5 segment car". Jackson said, though, that there's a question mark as to whether the next-generation large vehicle will be sold in Europe or, indeed, the rest of the world...

Citroen C5 Finale announced, $59,990 drive-away

Citroen Australia importer Sime Darby has announced another limited-edition version of the Citroen C5 sedan, called the C5 Finale. Just 30 units will be made available, though consider that this year Citroen is averaging about 10 C5 sales a month. The range-topping model marks the brief, and singular, return of the familiar (to Citroen fans) 150kW/450Nm 2...

Current Citroen C5 to be last car from brand with hydropneumatic suspension - report

The current-generation Citroen C5 will reportedly be the last car from the French brand to be offered with the company's iconic hydropneumatic suspension system. Anonymous sources have told Reuters that PSA Peugeot Citroen will cease production and development of the plush-riding suspension setup when the current C5 ceases production...

2013 Citroen C5: minor updates for French mid-sizer

The updated Citroen C5 will benefit from a minute facelift akin to a game of 'spot the difference' when it arrives in Australia in late 2012 or early 2013. The only notable difference between the existing C5 (pictured below), first seen in 2008, and the 2013 model year C5 (pictured top) is the slight change and modernisation of the Citroen chevrons on the grille and steering wheel, matching that of the new Citroen C4 AirCross, and bringing it into line with the company's refreshed look...
