Citroen has already given us a taste of what to expect for its new C5 sedan with the unveiling of the C5 Airscape concept car at last week's Frankfurt Motor Show. The automaker is now planning to take the wraps off the real thing at a press event scheduled for the 18th of next month.

The car won't officially go on sale, however, until its world debut, most likely at the Brussels auto show in January. Citroen will release both a C5 sedan and wagon, but there's no word on whether a convertible version like the concept car will enter production. According to an inside source, product planners are conducting market research for an upmarket convertible that, if given the go ahead, could be on sale in 12 months time.

Some new technologies rumored to make it into the new C5 include a new traction control system, start-stop features and brake-energy regeneration. There could even be the brand's traditional hydro-pneumatic suspension or possibly a new air suspension set-up.
