This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Citroën C5 Hatchback (04-08) review.

Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

The interior has hints of luxury car styling, with big sweeping lines, and padded doors. It doesn’t imitate the art to perfection though, with slightly tacky trims and mediocre build quality. Driving position is good, as is visibility.

The seats are well cushioned and there’s enough room in the back for two adults or three children to sit comfortably. C5 leads the way with a fluffy cloud-like magic carpet ride, thanks to the air suspension. It succeeds in creating a quiet and ultimately cushioned ride – in short, C5 is the passenger’s friend.
