Citroën C5 Saloon (08-18)


5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Individual, doesn't follow the sheep, appreciates the design and heritage of the mark.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Everyone I know never has anything negative to say about the car.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Definitely because it has so much presence on the road, has great design and I love driving it, but may go for a more powerful engine but to be fair the 138 bhp engine goes well.

What are you likely to buy next?
Another C5 or may go smaller and buy a DS4 but it doesn't have the hydropneumatic suspension which makes this car so special, but people say that the coil sprung models of the C5 ride ok.

December 2014

Quite a pleasant chap, but a bit unprofessional without a chip & pin machine.
