The Citroen C5 will get a mild update for the 2012 generation of the model, along with a small power boost for the 1.6 HDi unit.
According to the French based automaker, the 2012 Citroen C5 is coming with updated elements, including a new shade for the body, named the Guaranja Brown and a fresh set of 17-inch Egee alloy wheels. The exterior modifications stop here but the cabin is getting a new Exclusive level of equipment, which is adding a mix of leather and textile upholstery, along with a new navigation system named the eMyWay, which is also integrating the company’s connectivity system for the Bluetooth, USB and Aux.
The entry-level engine offered on the Citroen C5, the 1.6 liter HDi unit, is now developing a total output of 115 horsepower, from the standard 110 HP, thanks to some software modifications. The price of the base C5 is now 250 euros more expensive on the vehicle’s local auto market, as the carmaker is saying. The Citroen C5 Tourer can also be upgraded with a rear-view video camera linked to the navigation system, which is showing images on the multimedia screen mounted on the dashboard. More details on the “new” Citroen C5 are expected to be announced later on this summer.
