Citroen has introduced the latest C5 iteration - the CrossTourer, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The car should rival the likes of the Skoda Octavia Scout and the Opel Insignia Country Tourer.

The newest model to join the C5 lineup features specially designed wing extensions, lengthwise matte grey roof bars and matching 18-inch diamond-effect alloy wheels in matte grey, along with chrome-finished wing mirror housings and brushed aluminium protective fairing on the front and rear bumpers.

These style attributes are combined with 15-mm higher ground clearance compared to the regular C5 at up to 44 mph (70 km/h) for the Hydractive III+ versions. 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.

No new engines are available for the C5 CrossTourer. The lineup offers diesel units, ranging between 115 HP and 200 HP. The aforementioned Hydractive III+ suspension is available with all of them, except for the HDi 115 manual and e-HDi 115 Airdream EGS6.

The French automaker has also equiped the rough station wagon with the Intelligent Traction Control system and the eMyWay navigation system combined with a reversing camera for easier manoeuvres.

The Citroen C5 CrossTourer will be available in two trim levels, Millenium and Exclusive, starting at 31,950 EUR.
