2011 Citroen C5 Facelift
At 201 Paris Motor Show, Citroen revealed the updated version of the stunningly handsome C5.
The updates are quite subtle and virtually invisible to the naked eye, but they they do have their purposes.
They’ve put a great effort in upgrading the car’s lighting system! Apart form the new LEDs, there is active day and night and combined with a light guide, they subtly strengthen the car’s light signature. The headlamps retain all the existing functions, including xenon dual-function directional lights and corner lights. At the back, the rear lights get a new “Dark Crystal” treatment with clear glass in the central section.
One other great update is the e-HDi micro-hybrid system. Initially it will be available with the HDi 110 DPFS version equipped with the EGS6 electronic gearbox system with steering-wheel paddles and low rolling resistance tyres. Other features of this system is Stop & Start system, which retains an alternator-starter, or reversible alternator, and optimised watertight battery sized for up to 600,000 restart cycles.
