Citroën C5 X plug-in hybrid 225: a lot of comfort, low consumption
What is noticeable on the first few meters and the country road full of holes: peace and quiet in the box! In the best equipment, the C5 has acoustic glazing all around, pleasantly decouples the noise from outside, spoils you with the tendency to decelerate thanks to comfort seats and the active suspension with adaptive chassis. Yes, you can set the drive program switch to “Sport”, but this car doesn’t want that at all.

Has the new Citroën spoiled us? Yes, when we see the headroom and legroom in the back, the attention to detail with double angles in the seats, on the climate controls, the lots of light in the interior with a huge panoramic roof (1200 euros), the splash guards on the doors below. No, if we have to touch cheap hard plastic on the glove compartment and on the door panels below and thread in a rod as a hood opener.
