New Citroen C5 and C6 Models
Published Date: 30th Jun 2007
Citroen is enhancing the driver convenience of the C5 with the introduction of an automatic transmission for the range-topping 173hp 2.2HDi engine, in both saloon and estate models. This follows on from the recent addition of this refined, fuel efficient diesel unit to the Company’s flagship C6 line-up.
The C5 2.2HDi automatic will offer an outstanding blend of performance, refinement and economical fuel consumption, with 39mpg possible on the combined cycle, to complement the 6-speed manual gearbox model that is already on sale in the UK. Maximum torque of 295 lb.ft is available from 1,750rpm while the car can hit a top speed of 138mph and go from 0-62mph in 9.5 seconds.
The 2.2HDi powerplant has also been recently introduced into the stylish C6 range where it boasts impressively low CO2 emissions of just 175g/km. Mated to a 6-speed manual transmission this engine offers C6 customers an even more cost-effective way to get behind the wheel of Citroen’s flagship. Returning a combined cycle fuel consumption figure of 43mpg this model provides maximum torque of 273 lb.ft at just 1,500 rpm, along with a top speed of 135mph and 0-62mph acceleration of under 10 seconds.
On both C5 and C6 models, the green credentials of the Euro IV compliant powerplant are reinforced by the fitment of Citroen’s acclaimed Diesel Particulate Filter System (DPFS) which reduces particulate emissions to virtually immeasurable levels.
The availability of these new models will enhance the reputation of the C5 and C6 as being ultra-comfortable long distance cruisers, aided by the fitment of Citroen’s self-levelling suspension. This latest generation, electronically-controlled Hydractive suspension offers a ‘magic carpet ride’ that constantly adapts to provide the best possible balance of comfort and road handling.
