Citroen C5: news and pics of 2011 facelift

Its facelift time for the Citroen C5. The Gallic family car gets a cosmetic fillip, latest safety toys and a range of engine revisions to keep it bright in the face of new competition from the new VW Passat and pepped-up Ford Mondeo.

The 153bhp turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol nets inferior CO2 emissions, down 14g/km to 153, and economy is also improved, up to 42.2mpg from 39.8. This downsized turbo is currently the only petrol engine available in the Citroen C5 – and the Tourer estate range is diesel only.

The 3.0-litre diesel V6 with 237bhp is also revised, with carbon emissions down to 189g/km and mpg augmented to 39.2. Impressively, both economy figures are the equal for the saloon and estate.
