Citroen C5 Drops To $32,990 Drive-away

Mike Stevens | May 2, 2012

Australian Citroen distributor Ateco has announced a new drive-away deal for the C5 sedan, cutting more than $3000 from the price of the entry-level Attraction variant.

For a limited time, the brand will wear the dealer and delivery costs, along with statutory charges, giving the C5 Attraction a drive-away price of $32,990 - down from the usual $35,990 plus on-roads.

The Attraction model is powered by the same BMW co-developed 1.6 litre turbocharged petrol engine that is featured across a number of Citroen, Peugeot and MINI cars.

Joining the C5 range earlier this year, the 1.6 litre-powered C5 produces 115kW and 240Nm of torque.

Combined with a six-speed automatic transmission, fuel consumption for the 1.6 litre engine is listed at 7.1 l/100km on the combined cycle. The 0-100km/h run is listed at 9.5 seconds, and top speed is 210km/h.

Features in the Attraction include 17 inch alloy wheels, auto-dimming rear view mirror, automatic headlights and wipers, cruise control, speed limiter, Bluetooth and climate control.

Standard safety features across the C5 range include drive, front passenger, side front, curtain and driver's knee airbags, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Emergency Braking Assistance, ABS and electronic stability program.

Faced with stiff competition from newer models in the prestige market, the five year-old C5 has received few significant upgrades.

Australian C5 sales remain lacklustre, although new reduced pricing has seen 2012 sales increase to 63 (as at the end of March), compared to 40 for the same period in 2011.
