The Citroën C5 was introduced into the UK in April 2001 to replace the popular Xantia model. At its launch, the C5 was offered with a choice of 1.8 (1749cc) and 2.0 litre (1997cc) petrol engines or 2.0 litre (1997cc) turbo-diesel engines. The engine compart- ment is well-designed, and most of the items requiring frequent attention are easily accessible. Our repair manual makes the ideal companion when you’re undertaking maintenance or repairs on your car.
