C5 Airscape Concept gives an outlook of
future Citroen C5 design
CitroŽn is unveiling C5 Airscape at the
2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. This exceptional concept car is a new
take on the most beautiful of vehicles, the cabriolet.
C5 Airscape features powerful, dynamic
exterior styling and an interior of exclusive design, made for
driving pleasure and the comfort of three passengers. The
original mechanism of the folding roof underlines the overall
sophistication of design.
Styled for maximum appeal, C5 Airscape also
delivers maximum performance. New-generation Snow Motion traction
control provides a level of traction close to that of a four-wheel
drive. Other useful features are provided by the UrbanHybrid system.
This unit prevents noise and vibration when the
engine stops and boosts engine torque when needed. At the same time, it
shows real respect for the environment. Power and sophistication
A car of elegant lines, C5 Airscape conveys an
impression of strength and sophistication, with its cleanly drawn body
lines and ribbing at the top. The powerful look of the body is brought
out by the raw, intense grey of the bodywork.
This colour, whose intensity varies
according to the light, gives C5 Airscape an elegant and
precious look, consolidating its status as an executive
vehicle.Leisure and sophistication
Fully upholstered in dark brown
leather, the cabin of C5 Airscape conveys an appealing
impression of sophistication.
The particularly well designed seats
suggest luxury and precision. The central section of the seats
brings to mind the links of a watch strap, while the decorative
stitching on the edges of the seats reinforces the taut,
well-muscled look of the whole.
To add the finishing touch to the
executive design of the interior, the gear lever knob is set
with leather and chrome. The chrome echoes the metal strip
underlining the air conditioning controls and central
console.Technology serving the environmentThrough its powerful
engine, particulate filter and UrbanHybrid system, C5 Airscape
illustrates CitroŽn's ability to reconcile vehicle performance
with respect for the environment.
With its reversible alternator-starter and
super-capacitors able to temporarily store large amounts of energy, the
UrbanHybrid system delivers real benefits in terms of environmental
protection, driving pleasure, acoustic comfort and vibration control.
Driveability and performance in all circumstances
The executive positioning of C5 Airscape is
reflected by the presence of the 208 bhp 2.7 V6 HDi engine and
Combining power and fuel economy, this engine
develops 150 kW EEC (208 bhp DIN) at 4,000 rpm for torque of 440 Nm at
1,900 rpm. Right from the lowest speeds, it delivers smooth, gradual
power with exceptional operating comfort. Driveability is further
increased by a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
Taking the wheel of C5 Airscape is a total and
continuous experience in driving pleasure. This is a car that brings
leisure within easy reach.
