Citroën C5 Tourer estate (2008-2016) - MPG, running costs & CO2
With a diesel-only engine line-up, nearly all versions of the Citroen C5 Tourer offer good fuel economy – only automatic models disappoint
Citroen C5 MPG & CO2
There are only two diesel engines to choose from in the C5 Tourer, and Citroen claims both are capable of achieving 64mpg – even with an automatic gearbox in the more powerful version. This version actually has slightly lower CO2 emissions, too – at 114g/km, while the BlueHDi 150 emits 115g/km, so tax will cost you just £30 per year for both versions.
While running costs are quite impressive, it’s the C5 Tourer’s rate of depreciation that’s the biggest cause for concern. Top-of-the-range models are predicted to retain just 27% of their original value after three years or 36,000 miles of ownership, which is significantly worse than the Volkswagen Passat. Even a basic BMW 3 Series Touring will cost less over three years because it holds its value so much better and the running costs are lower.
Citroen C5 insurance
The C5 Tourer sits in group 30 and 31 for insurance, which is quite high when you consider its rivals’ insurance groups. The Volkswagen Passat, in recommended 2.0 TDI SE Business spec, sits in insurance group 19, while the Ford Mondeo is in group 23.
Citroen C5 warranty
All new Citroens come with a three-year/60,000-mile warranty, but the Hyundai i40 Tourer has five years of unlimited-mileage cover.
Citroen C5 servicing
The Citroen Originals scheme gives you a fixed price on routine maintenance items such as brake pads (£115), brake discs (£235) and wiper blades (£35).
