CITROËN C5 CROSSTOURER



an invitation to take to the road



On the occasion of the Geneva Motor Show, CITROËN presents an “all roads” version of the CITROËN C5: the C5 CrossTourer. This new model includes all of the strengths behind the success of the CITROËN C5, with more than 530 000 sold and recognised for its benchmark handling and ride. With its dynamic character, the CITROËN C5 CrossTourer offers really useful abilities for the well being of the occupants and an invitation to travel with:

- An “all roads” style that confers on the vehicle an assertive personality thanks to the special wheel arch extensions, matt grey longitudinal roof bars combined with specific 18’’ matt grey diamond-pattern alloy wheels, chrome door mirror shells and brushed aluminium protectors on the front and rear bumpers. These styling features are completed by ride height that is raised by 15 mm (up to 70 km/h). Original styling that offers an invitation to travel.

- Optimum comfort adapting to all types of road thanks in particular to the Hydractive III+. suspension. This technology, offered by no other manufacturer, allows the ride height to be controlled in real time so as to maintain a constant ground clearance regardless of the load in the vehicle. This suspension adapts the stiffness and damping according to the demands from the driver and the profile of the road for an optimum level of comfort and body control whatever the circumstances. Automatic lowering of the ride height at high speed improves aerodynamics. At moderate speeds, the C5 CrossTourer can use one of two additional ride heights (+ 6 cm up to 10 km/h and + 4 cm up to 40 km/h) to facilitate crossing uneven terrain at low speed. A variable ride height also facilitates loading by lowering or raising the height of the boot sill. Still with comfort in mind, the CITROËN C5 CrossTourer also offers a massage driver’s seat with electric lumbar adjustment and full leather trim.

- Technologies that are useful in all circumstances with in particular Intelligent Traction Control deal with any driving conditions, by improving traction on snow-covered or muddy surfaces, or the eMyWay navigation system coupled with a reversing camera for easier manoeuvres.
