Citroën has revealed a "CrossTourer" version of the C5 which will be showcased to the public in early March at the Geneva Motor Show.

This new iteration of the C5 will have to go up against the recently unveiled Skoda Octavia Scout and Opel Insignia Country Tourer. The French marque says the model adopts an "all-road design" equipped with bespoke wing extensions, matte grey roof bars and unique 18-inch diamond-effect alloys complemented by the chrome wing mirror housings and brushed aluminum protective fairing on both bumpers.

Compared to the regular C5, the CrossTourer boasts a +15mm increased ground clearance up to speeds of 44 mph (70 km/h) for the version fitted with the Hydractive III+ suspension. At speeds up to 6 mph (10 km/h) the vehicle will have ride at a body height of 6 cm while up to 25 mph (40 km/h) the body height will stand at 4 cm for an improved clearance.

The aforementioned Hydractive III+ suspension is available with all engines found in the regular C5, except for the HDi 115 manual and e-HDi 115 Airdream EGS6.

It will be sold in Millenium and Exclusive trim levels and will come as standard with full leather upholstery as well as massaging driver's seat with electric lumbar adjustment. The C5 CrossTourer is offered with an Intelligent Traction Control system for better traction on snow- or mud-covered roads, along with the eMyWay navigation system and a reversing camera.

Already available on preorder, the Citroën C5 CrossTourer has a starting price of 31,950 EUR.
