Facelifted Citroen C5 arrives at the Dealer in China
Published on February 25, 2013 by W.E. Ning
The facelifted Citroen C5 will be launched on the Chinese car market on March 1 and the first vehicles have arrived at Citroen dealers in China. The facelift included a new grille, new head lights, new bumpers, new rear lights and an updated interior.
The grille, more fuzzy than before with more lines and extra chrome. The Citroen C5 is made in China by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture. The old engines will all continue: 2.0, 2.3 and a 3.0 V6, the rumored 1.6 turbo has been delayed. Price for the facelifted Citroen C5 will range from 175.900 yuan to 290.000 yuan.
Chrome bar grew bigger and moved down from trunk lid to bumper.
The Citroen C5 is based on the same platform as the Peugeot 508 which is made in China as well.
This is the new dash. New higher-quality materials and a redesigned center console. But! No flat screen. Spy shots, and Citroens leaked officials pics, clearly showed a new TFT screen on top of mentioned console. We therefore expected all C-fives would get the screen, but that appears not to be true. Not a good move, Chinese car buyers expect a 175.000 yuan car to come with a screen these days, even 50.000 yuan Chery’s don’t come without.
