Humdinger or humdrum? The ageing Citroen C5…

Let’s get one thing clear from the start. The C5 is long overdue a major overhaul. It’s been around for eight years and, quite frankly, is starting to look it’s age.

Compared to a top spec Mondeo, it’s nowhere in sight. The big Citroen saloon may have been a minor hit in 2008 but now it’s like an 80s pop star – living off former glory.

First impressions? Well, the C5 is disappointingly dull to look at. And that’s from the outside and the inside. It’s totally unremarkable, especially in our test car silver. Yikes!

Apart from a funky, fixed steering wheel loaded with a mass of buttons – more on that in the days ahead – it’s all a bit spartan. Citroen would say uncluttered but the bonkers steering wheel blows that argument out of the water.

Let’s hope there’s more to this car than meets the eye…
