Citroën C5 X

Citroën C5 X open for orders

The new Citroën C5 X Plug-in Hybrid crossover is now open for orders, with prices starting from £35,190 and first customer deliveries from late spring 2022.

The C5 X 225hp Plug-in Hybrid powertrain delivers a zero-emissions range of up to 34 miles (WLTP).

The new C5 X features the ‘Citroën Advanced Comfort Programme’, including Citroën Advanced Comfort Active Suspension and Advanced Comfort seats.

The C5 X is available with a choice of three trim levels: ‘Sense Plus’, ‘Shine’ and ‘Shine Plus’, each with the option of Plug-in Hybrid or petrol power.

New C5 X models feature 19-inch alloy wheels that help improve aerodynamic efficiency, while low rolling resistance tyres further improve fuel economy.

There’s 485-litres of space in the boot for the PHEV model, or 1,580-litres with the rear seats folded down. 

Citroën Advanced Comfort Suspension adds hydraulic stops to the suspension system, improving comfort when driving on uneven surfaces. 

Citroën Advanced Comfort Active Suspension further improves on-board comfort by combining the hydraulic stops with a controlled suspension system and adaptive damping.

New C5 X benefits from Citroën Advanced Comfort seats as standard, which feature 15mm more foam padding, providing more support on longer drives. An acoustically insulated windscreen is also standard across all C5 X models, further reducing road noise in the cabin.

The C5 X Hybrid models combine a PureTech 180 petrol engine with an 81.2kW electric motor and a 12.4kWh Lithium-ion battery pack, for a combined power output of 225hp and 360Nm of torque. Capable of up to 34 miles in full-electric mode, the C5 X Hybrid models emit just 30g/km of CO2 – making them eligible for an 11% Benefit-in-Kind taxation rate.

Hybrid variants come with three driving modes – Electric, Hybrid and Sport. An ë-Save function allows drivers to reserve electric range for later in the journey, such as when arriving in urban areas.

The Citroën C5 X ‘Sense Plus’ Plug-in Hybrid 225 e-EAT8 costs £35,190, the ‘Shine’ Plug-in Hybrid 225 e-EAT8     30 costs £36,690, and the ‘Shine Plus’ Plug-in Hybrid 225 e-EAT8 costs £38,680.
