Citroen C5 cars are renowned for stylishness and class. The Citroen C5 is the descendent of the Citroen Xantia and has been manufactured since 2001. The original Xantia skeleton has been amended, softened and brought bang up to date with visually pleasing smooth flowing lines with a sporty, fun feel. The body styles of the Citroen C5 come in three options: 5-door estate, 5-door lift-back and 4-door saloon. All three Citroen C5 models are available in both automatic and manual designs and both diesel and petrol. The Citroen C5 is a very quiet drive even at speed and economical too with the automatic averaging 38/mph, the manual at 50/mph and the diesel at 53/mpg.
No stranger to the spotlight, the Citroen C5 won the What Diesel Magazine's Diesel Car of the Year in 2009 and in that same year also was awarded the title of 'Semperit Irish Car of the Year' from the Irish Motoring Writers Association. In 2010 the Citroen C5 was named Green Family Car of the Year at 'What Car Green Awards.' If further silverware is required, in 2011 the Citroen C5 picked up a fourth consecutive title of Best Family Car in the 2011 British Insurance Vehicle Security Awards. Citroen has also been named as 'Greenfleet Car Manufacturer of the Year' (2010 and 2011).
