The Citroën C5 It is one of the most anticipated models in recent years. Nna new generation that gives a relief to a model that was on the market for almost a decade and has been replaced by an SUV. Plans for new model launches with the two chevrons remain unchanged, and the new Citroën C5will arrive in 2022 as Linda Jackson confirmed two years ago.
However, it will no longer be a conventional saloon. Citroën will continue betting on the format of the C3 and C4, passenger cars with a higher body height to the ground in the purest Cactus style, precisely the model that launched this configuration. But, without a doubt, the most anticipated is the style that will reproduce the new top of the range that, known internally as E43, will offer a design more familiar and with a certain sportier air like Shooting Brake.

In addition, the shape of the gate is also reminiscent of the old C6 style, with very rounded and protruding shapes that give the shape of a three-volume false saloon. Ahead, there will be no surprises because the same concept design is expected, seen in the new compact and the updated utility, with the split headlamps and extended chevrons.
Under the hood, engines are expected gasoline and diesel three and four cylinders, all with automatic transmission. The offer also includes a plug-in hybrid, although they could be two and thus cover the spectrum of powers of segment E, where the C6 was also present, since this new model will occupy the gap of the two banners.
