Citroen has revealed this upgraded C5, sporting subtle styling changes, new equipment options and a refreshed engine range.

Both saloon and estate models benefit from the upgrades which include new LED lights at the front and new glass for the rear light clusters.

All C5 Exclusive models will get as standard Citroen’s eTouch emergency and assistance system, which allows a driver to make emergency calls using the car’s in-built SIM card.

The most significant changes, however, are to the engine line-up. All of the C5’s engines have been made EuroV compliant; this has lead to the addition of a new 108bhp 1.6 HDi unit to replace the outgoing EuroIV version.

The 153bhp 1.6i THP and 237bhp 3.0HDi V6 engines have been be re-homolgated. This means economy increases from 39.8mpg to 42.2mpg and 38.2mpg to 39.2mpg respectively. CO2 emissions also drop 14g/km and 6g/km respectively, too.

The new C5 will go on sale in the UK from Monday, priced from £19,195 for the entry-level 1.6HDi saloon.

Citroën C5

The spacious, comfortable Citroen C5 makes an interesting and off-beat Mondeo rival

Yes, much preferred the C5 interior to the Mundano.

The GTA was sublime - imported it 'new' from Malaysia - zero miles, only had 22K on the clock when I sold it and despite being a Selespeed (albeit an entirely different system to the notorious one on 4 cylinder Alfas) was 100% reliable.

The Yeti was more a case of the car I needed rather than wanted, nevertheless it is a deeply impressive piece of kit, really looking forward to Friday morning (been waiting since July!).

I reckon changing a 156 gta for a yeti (not unless the 156 was crippling me to run) is on a whole other level from changing a mondeo to a c5 (which I would, every day of the week, no questions asked - have you seen the mondeos' interior....bleugh) but each to their own!

I prefer it to the A4 as well.

Friend got a 2.2 Titanium Mundano in the end and so far so good but still has a soft spot for the C5.

Same set of 'friends' were equally scathing when I announced I was chopping my beloved 156 GTA for a Yeti.

I did however ignore them, and it finally arrives on Friday.
