The vibration is eliminated - the beginning and clippings - using a dual-mass flywheel, and Sealed Air Control, and the realization of the slowdown in the fastest speed.

A support system of the onboard network, called E-Booster stimulates the supply of electricity from the alternator with super-production, temporarily adding to the power of the battery. This configuration offers several advantages, namely:

Increased transfer of energy, to improve the start up to temperatures of -5 � C;

support through the transparency of the entire board network in the energy required by the alternator to maintain the performance of lighting, wipers and radio;

a function that optimizes the battery and super output by recovering energy when drivers take their foot off the brake or, with a slight increase in engine braking.

Exhibition allow 155 g / km of CO2 emissions and the Tourer 159 g / km. Like the Citroen C5 HDi FAP 240, a new version of the visually stands out from the chrome dual exhaust pipes.

Citroen C5 VTi 120 EGS6 the range of gasoline engines new Citroen C5 is available with a new gasoline engine mated to a 6-speed electronic system (EGS6).
