Citroën presents the C5 X, its new flagship, a car with a highly original architecture, a synthesis of saloon, station wagon and crossover. The C5 X is currently Citroën’s flagship model and its name is inspired by the CXperience Concept, unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. The striking design renews the codes of the D segment with a decisive silhouette ending in the tailgate, with fluid volumes in favour of aerodynamics.

The design team led by Pierre Leclerq has created unconventional proportions that start with rear overhangs that are longer than the front ones and recall some cars that have marked the history of Citroën flagships. “With its innovative styling that combines the elegance of a saloon, the dynamism of a station wagon and the reassuring appearance of an SUV, the C5 X embodies all the audacity of Citroën style. Its unique morphology, aerodynamic lines and modern light signature make this car a true Citroën, instantly recognisable,” says Leclercq.

The high waistline, which at the rear highlights the large wheels, gives it uniqueness and dynamism. The interior of the C5 X conveys a feeling of tranquillity, an invitation to travel in a comfortable environment thanks to special foams used for the seats and model-specific suspension. The interior design is uncluttered and technological: the 12-inch floating display stands out in the centre of the dashboard, while the instrumentation is also digital and a large 21-inch head-up display is projected onto the windscreen. The Citroën C5 X is produced in China and will be available to order from October.
