Perhaps the best news of all, – hydraulic suspension is back in the Citroën lineup!   At least as an option.  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 increase body height by 6 cm while up to 25 mph (40 km/h) the body height will increase by 4 cm for 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 feature full leather upholstery as standard 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 pre-order, the Citroën C5 CrossTourer has a starting price of € 31,950.
