Driving Aids

Parking assist

Parking sensors make manoeuvring easier and are an essential part of city driving:

ultrasonic sensors in the bumpers sense any obstacles close to the car the system emits an audible beep and shows the proximity and location of the obstacles on the onboard computer screen.The hill-start assist function works with the electric parking brake to keep your vehicle steady for two seconds when you release the brake pedal on a slope of over 3%. This gives you time to move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator.

Parking space ‘gap’ measurement system

The parking space ‘gap’ measurement system works with the parking sensors to help you park your vehicle:

tells you whether the space is big enough;and indicates the difficulty of parking manœuvres;

Cruise control and speed limiter

Cruise control keeps your CITROËN C5 at a set speed when you take your foot off the accelerator while the speed limiter keeps the car within the limit you choose. And both can be easily turned off by pressing hard on the accelerator or via a button on the steering wheel.

Electric parking brake

For added convenience; standard on all CITROËN C5 with Hydractive III+ suspension, the electric parking brake calculates how much force is needed to keep the car stationary. It’s easily activated using a button on the central console and comes on automatically when you stop the engine and shuts off when you put the car in motion.


Powerful consideration. Environmental concern and powerful performance aren’t usually criteria you’d group together. But in the CITROËN C5, we’ve evolved our technology for greener, quieter engines – with plenty of exhilarating performance. It’s just one more reason you’ll feel good driving the CITROËN C5.


The CITROËN C5 combines the performance and comfort usually found in executive cars. The sophisticated running gear soaks up any bumps and dips in the road, while the choice between our two suspensions will satisfy all driving styles.


If you really want to enjoy a more unique ride the Hydractive III+ is our most advanced suspension technology to date. The Hydractive III+ suspension makes for a safe, comfortable ride by adapting automatically to road conditions and your driver input. It will keep your car at a constant height, regardless of the load and lets you choose between a soft and firm stiffness setting. For an even more dynamic and energetic ride choose the sport mode!


The CITROËN C5 is available with a high-performance 120kW Turbo Diesel. Virtually every function of the CITROËN C5 is monitored and controlled by three digital computer networks, making millions of calculations and adjustments to your driving conditions – all for your maximum safety, comfort and fuel efficiency.

The HDi engines are the benchmark in their category. They pollute less and consume less fuel than conventional diesel engines. CO2 emissions and fuel consumption are both cut by 20%. These engines also feature an electronically controlled common-rail system that optimises the air/fuel mix and the FAP filter significantly reduces emissions of pollutant particulates.

Gear Box

The 6-speed automatic gearbox gives you a choice between automatic mode, which adapts the gear changing (eleven shift patterns) to your driving style, and sequential mode, which lets you change gears freely.


Protective force. Packed with cutting-edge technology, the CITROËN C5 does everything it can to prevent accidents. Of course if one does happen, rest assured you and your passengers are surrounded by one of the finest protective body-shells on the road.


Bi-Xenon directional headlamps set high standards in safety with twice the brightness of halogen lights: excellent visibility at night or in bad weather; white beams make night driving less tiring; headlamps follow the steering angle of the car so that you can see the road ahead sooner; coupled with corner lights (covering an angle of up to 105° on each side) and daytime-running lights that make you more visible.twice the brightness of halogen lights.

Advanced safety braking

The CITROËN C5 comes with an innovative and comprehensive braking system:

two large-diameter vented disc brakes on the front and solid disc brakes on the rear; an ABS (Anti-Blocking System) feature that adjusts braking pressure electronically to stop the wheels locking; Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) that distributes braking power evenly to all wheels; Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA) that boosts braking power instantly when the driver presses hard on the brake pedal.


ESP (Electronic Stability Program) helps the driver keep the car under control even in the most difficult situations:
– using brakeforce distribution and engine speed to keep the car on course if it loses grip when cornering;
– coupled to the traction control (ASR) system that immediately brakes the drive wheels in the event of skidding.


The CITROËN C5 provides full protection for all passengers. There are nine airbags as standard (front, lateral, knee and curtain). The body structure of the CITROËN C5 sets the highest standards in passenger protection: the front end is designed to soak up impact energy in the event of a collision; the cabin has been strengthened to prevent intrusions or buckling of the survival cell. The steering column retracts over 65 mm at impact.
