There's a French competitor for the all-new Opel Insignia EcoFlex. Citroën has unveiled a new version of its C5 sedan, spotting the marque's Airdream ecolabel. The C5 Airdream has the proven PSA 1.6-liter 110hp engine, which seems a little small for such a hefty vehicle, but manages to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures to keep them under 140 g/km. In France, this model qualifies for discounted taxes for businesses that use cleaner vehicles as company cars. The C5 Airdream spots electric power steering, low rolling resistance Michelin tires, more fluid transmission oil and the usual aero tweaks. Citroën also announced that the 2.0-liter HDI diesel engine is now Euro V compliant.
