Citroën's entry in the medium-large car segment is the C5. This sedan, which competes against offerings such as the VW Passat
, gets updated with a couple of Euro V-compliant powertrains that reduce fuel consumption and CO2
emissions. First, the C5 gets the 1.6-liter THP turbo gasoline engine, which was co-developed with BMW
and can be found in other PSA offerings as well as the Mini. This 163 hp unit replaces the 2-liter 143 hp unit and burns 7.1 l/100 km (33 mpg U.S.). The new diesel
features a particulate filter and is a 2-liter 163 hp unit that manages to burn just 5.6 l/100 km (42 mpg U.S.) when mated to a manual gearbox and 6.9 l/100 km (34 mpg U.S.) when mated to an automatic.
