The citroen c5 stands out in a part of the market that is often dull. The C5 is arguably the best looking saloon when compared to rivals, and it isn't a case of style over substance either. It certainly isn't a sports car when it comes to the corners; however few can match it for its effortlessly smooth ride and overall sense of refinement. The diesel engines are by far the most popular choice and provide ample power with the added benefit of great economy. Quality is also high with a spacious interior that feels like it could have come from a much more expensive car. You get plenty of standard kit and it's very safe. Only weak residuals can put buyers off.
