New Citroën C5 X has been awarded the 'Best Large Car' prize by WWCOTY (Women's World Car of the Year). This jury was created in 2009 by Sandy Myhre to allow women in the automotive world to have a voice in the models coming onto the market. Women often have a role in car buying even when they are not the sole decision-maker. They have a distinctive view of the strengths and weaknesses of a car. An all-female jury of 63 automotive journalists from 45 countries on five continents has the tough task of selecting the best cars over six categories (Large Car, Performance Car, Urban Car, Large SUV, 4X4 and Family SUV).
The winning vehicles represent excellence in their category in terms of safety, driving, comfort, technology, design, efficiency, environmental impact and value for money. New Citroën C5 X won the ‘Best Large Car’ category and will now compete against the other five winners in the final round to determine the overall winner of the WWCOTY's top award. The winner will be announced on 8 March, International Women's Day.
Introduced in 2021, New C5 X is a flagship model representing Citroën's unique expertise. Worldwide, more than 45,000 units have already been delivered in just one year. In Europe, in the second half of the year, New C5 X is the leader of the D-segment mainstream saloon market. New C5 X combines the elegance and dynamism of a saloon, the versatility and practicality of an estate car with the modernity and status of an SUV, all this while ensuring unrivalled comfort thanks to Citroën Advanced Comfort® seats and Citroën Advanced Comfort® Active suspension.
New C5 X is a true invitation to travel in complete serenity. It offers cutting-edge technologies to simplify life on board, including the Extended Head-Up Display, or the new MyCitroën Drive Plus infotainment system with natural speech recognition and a 12" touch screen. New C5 X is also perfectly integrated into Citroën’s energy transition by offering a Plug-in Hybrid 225 ë-EAT8 version which already accounts for 60% of the New C5 X sales mix.
