Published on December 4, 2012 by W.E. Ning
The very first pictures of the facelifted Citroen C5, it was expected to debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show last month but didn’t show up. Citroen decided not to bother with any show, the vehicle will be launched on the Chinese auto market early next year. The facelift included a new grille, new head lights, new bumpers and new rear lights.
Current Citroen C5, made in China by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture. Price starts at 176.900 yuan and ends at 298.900 yuan. Engines: 2.0, 2.3 and 3.0 V6. The 2.0 will not return in the facelifted Citroen C5, it will be replaced by a new 1.6 turbo with 140hp and 240nm. Prices will be about the same.
Changes at the back are much smaller. New lights don’t differ much from old ones. Citroen-logo gets bigger. We will, no doubt, get better pics soon for a better comparison!
