    first impression of the new C5

    found a pic of admittedly an artist impression of how the new Citroen C5 could be looking.

    If it will look like this, Peugeot can bin its 407....

    first to be shown at Frankfurt IAA, September 2007, on sale probably early 2008.

    This drawing actually looks like it is re-designed Audi6...but certainly without the big mouth..

    Somehow I have the feeling it's a chop. Where did you find it (if I can ask so)?

    But if it's going to look like this, I think it's OK. Not very great, but looks fine. I do think that the big air-intakes in at the front are a bit over the top. But that's just my personal taste.

    I don't speak Swedish, but I think this is an artist impression. But I guess he could be very close based on the pictures of the test vehicle.

    ROFL, I completely missed that part of the sentence... So my first post doesn't make any sense either. Sorry for the confusion... (and stupidity)

    I'm so looking forward to this car. Many impressions have been published, based on Lexus or Audis, but I hope Citroen can impress us, again.

    The front wings hint strongly of those bolted to Mitsubishi's (rather disappointing to drive but great to look at) new Eclipse, while from the wings back, it looks a bit like what Buick is going for here in the states.

    I guess, as Gandhi said, there's nothing new under the sun.

    A Citroen is unique underneath its body....design is just a necessary evil, and they sometimes fail to come up with a good one. This indeed looks like a great improvement over the current model..
