At the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Citroen will bring its all-new C5 CrossTourer, a rugged version of the well-known C5 that promises to take you almost everywhere you want to. As you can see from the photos, the 2014 Citroen C5 CrossTourer comes with specially designed wing extensions, matte grey roof bars, chrome-finished wing mirror housings, brushed aluminum protective fairing on the front and rear bumpers, as well as a new set of 18-inch diamond-effect alloy wheels.
Moreover, the vehicle has a higher ground clearance (+15 mm) at up to 70 km/h for Hydractive III+ versions. At lower speeds, the C5 CrossTourer rides at two body heights – 6 cm up to 10 km/h and 4 cm up to 40 km/h – for improved clearance. According to Citroen, the body height is lowered at high speeds in order to reduce drag and make the car more fuel-efficient.
Speaking of fuel-efficiency, the C5 CrossTourer is available with all engine versions apart from the HDi 115 manual and the e-HDi 115 Airdream EGS6 (powered by diesel engines ranging from 115 bhp to 200 bhp).
Furthermore, the 2014 Citroen C5 CrossTourer comes with Intelligent Traction Control, which improves traction on snow- or mud-covered roads, and the eMyWay navigation system combined with a reversing camera for easier manoeuvres. Pricing for the 2014 C5 CrossTourer starts at €31,950.
Citroen’s C5 range is now available with a new engine – a next-generation 2.2-liter mill that delivers more power output and torque, consumes less fuel, and emits less carbon dioxide.
This new engine features upgrades that have been implemented on other diesel mills in the C5 range. One of these upgrades involved the employment of the third-generation common rail system and combustion chambers retaining ECCS (Extreme Conventional Combustion System) technology, as well as maximum injection pressure up to 2,000 bars and a lower compression ratio of 16 to 1. Two turbochargers are also used, featuring a parallel sequential set-up to grab high amount of torque even from the lowest engine speeds.
As tuned, the Citroen C5 HDi 200 DPFS engine delivers 204 bhp (150 kW EEC) of max output at 3,500 rpm and 450 Nm of peak torque at 2,000 rpm. Paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, this engine allows the Citroen C5 saloon to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 8.3 seconds (Tourer: 8.6 seconds) and reach a top speed of 230 km/h (225 km/h for the Tourer).
The C5 saloon consumes 5.9 liters of fuel per 100 km (Tourer: 6.1 liters) and emits 155 grams of carbon dioxide per (Tourer: 159 g/km). The new C5 HDi 200 DPFS features a chrome-finished double tailpipe.
Meanwhile, the new 1.6-liter petrol engine in the Citroen C5 VTi 120 delivers 88 kW EEC (120 bhp) of max output, consuming 6.2 liters of fuel and emitting 144 grams of carbon dioxide in the process. This engine is mated to a six-speed electronic gearbox system (EGS6) with wheel-mounted paddles.
