Continuing to expand its model range in the Australian market, Citroen Australia will
introduce the all-new Citroen C5 X to its line-up.

The C5 has been around since 2001, originally as a large family sedan with the C5 X,
launched last year in Europe, now adding a premier SUV to the range.

The Citroen C5 X will be powered by a turbo-petrol 1.6-litre PureTech engine, producing
133kW of power, paired with an eight-speed Efficient Automatic Transmission. All the
signs seem to indicate that a petrol/electric (PHEV) variant will follow.

Kate Gillis, Managing Director Citroen Australia, said: “There is no doubt that the Citroen
C5 X will further expand the brand’s growth opportunities in Australia. Truly encompassing
the brand’s design DNA, the C5 X will appeal to the discerning Australian consumer keen
to travel in absolute comfort and stand out in style on the roads.

“The Citroen C5 X breathes new life into the large car segment with an original design and
an avant-garde body shape. With its sedan style long sloping bonnet, large low loading
boot of a wagon and the elevated driving position of an SUV, the C5 X is one of a kind.

“Making the latest model instantly recognisable as a Citroen, the C5 X will feature the
marque’s distinctive V-shaped light signature at the front and rear.

The Citroen C5 X will provide the latest expression of Citroen’s Advanced Comfort
program, optimising comfort and practicality.

The all-new Citroen C5 X is set to arrive in Australian showrooms in the fourth quarter of
2022. Further information, including specification and pricing, will be available closer to
