Used Citroën C5 Hatchback (2001 - 2004) Comfort

Review by Parkers on
The C5 replaced the Xantia in 2001. It's a supremely comfortable car with clever 'active' hydro-pneumatic suspension that is very comfortable.

The seats are well cushioned and there’s enough room in the back for two adults or three children to sit comfortably. C5 leads the way with a fluffy cloud-like magic carpet ride, thanks to the air suspension. It succeeds in creating a quiet and ultimately cushioned ride - in short, C5 is the passenger's friend.

Estates have one of the largest load areas in the class and as a result command higher prices on the used market. Fold the seats down and there's more room still. Makes you wonder why you were considering that MPV.

Behind the wheel

The interior has hints of luxury car styling, with big sweeping lines, and padded doors. It doesn't imitate the art to perfection though, with slightly tacky trims and mediocre build quality. Driving position is good, as is visibility.
