“We’re delighted to offer more choice to Australian consumers as we get ready to introduce the new Citroën C5 X PHEV, a vehicle that champions Citroën’s core design language. Combining Citroën’s defining Advanced Comfort technology with the tranquillity of electric driving, the C5 X PHEV is the perfect car for modern Australian living.”

With a range that will offer both petrol and hybrid variants, the Citroën C5 X presents customers with more choice than ever before. As with its petrol counterpart, the Citroën C5 X Plug-In Hybrid invites occupants to ride in absolute comfort. The cleverly designed sound insulation and acoustic laminated front and rear windows of the Citroën C5 X Plug-In Hybrid create a drive experience with less noise and less vibration for unparalleled comfort.

The avant-garde body shape of the C5 X presents a dynamic reinterpretation of the classic sedan, providing the elevated driving position of an SUV along with the aerodynamics of a wagon. This vehicle strikes the perfect balance between elegance and comfort, for a smooth and serene driving experience.
