Published on April 24, 2017 by Joey Wang
The China-made Citroen C5 has received another facelift and is good to go for another two years or so. The facelift includes new headlights, a new grille, new bumpers, new tail lights, and an updated interior. The facelifted Citroen C5 will launch on the Chinese car market next month.
The new tail light design is called “Quad Eight”, for eight red quads.
Design is similar to the lights on the new C5 Aircross.
The interior gets a big upgrade with an all new dashboard and steering wheel. The instrument panel is fully digital on a 12.3 inch screen. The touch screen is 8 inch and comes with Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink.

Sales of the Citroen C5 are slow because it is an aging car. The facelift is a stop gap for until the new car arrives in 2019 or 2020. Two facelifted C5 will be available with two engines: a 167 hp 1.6 turbo and a 204 hp 1.8 turbo. The 2.0 and 2.3 have been deleted. Price will range from 180.000 to 220.000 yuan.
The Citroen C5 is made by the Dongfeng-PSA joint venture.
Citroen calls it the “the third generation C5”, as if it is a completely new car. This kind of grandiose names for simple facelifts are very common in China.
