Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
The car is a brilliant motorway cruiser, Its size makes it feel at home, while being quiet and refined make it a very comfortable place to be. On a town or city journey it is a difficult brute to handle. It feels very heavy and bulky at low speeds and its "unique" handling means sharp turns and manoeuvres can be hard work. B roads fair better but it can wallow in to corners at speed.

What's it like to park?
The C5 has good visibility with its large windows, and mirrors. However tight parking can be difficult. Its bonnet extends a long way and it can be difficult to judge whereabouts in a parking space.
