The C5 also features Citroen’s unique hydropneumatic suspension system that offers multiple ride heights for a variety of road conditions. Other standard features include satellite navigation, sunroof, heated front seats, massaging driver’s seat, rear seat side and rear window shades, and Bluetooth and USB inputs for the stereo.

Citroen Australia’s National Sales Manager, Shaun Mackle, said the C5 Finale was devised to celebrate one of the most potent diesels available in C5.

“While C5 will still feature the proven 2.0-litre diesel engines in the future these 30 Finale vehicles are set to become something of a collector’s item for Citroen and automotive enthusiasts,” said Mackle.

“This drivetrain compliments the C5’s ability to cover long distances with ease and in utmost comfort, we are certain that they will not last long.”
