As it seems, Citroen is planning to reveal its flagship model under the C5 nameplate in the near future. There is no proper image of the car currently and we just have some digital renders and a couple of photos that have been taken with camouflage. The new car is known as the E43 project and the French automaker is working on it from 2020 and it is expected to release in 2021. Citroen is going to unveil its flagship product at the 2021 Shanghai Auto Show in April and it is expected to go on sale by September.
While there is no accurate image from the car but some folks made digital renderings and as they show the car follows a new design language and it has a completely different front facia compared to the current generation. The new C5 will use split-type headlamps, LED taillights, and new bumpers.
As the spy shots prove the new Citroen C5 is not exactly a sedan but it looks like a wagon or hatchback. There are also black plastic wheel arches that give the C5 a more adventure look.
It is said that the new Citroen C5 will be built on the same platform as Peugeot 508. If that statement comes true we can expect a range of petrol, diesel and hybrid engines from the PSA group.
The new Peugeot 508 is available in most markets with a 130 hp turbo diesel, 1.6- liter turbo petrol engine with 160 hp, and a 1.6-liter turbocharged hybrid engine with 225 hp.
