The Citroen C5 range has been updated with fresh styling and technology, while DS5 buyers have been given the option to slash CO2 emissions to sub-100g/km levels.

Saloon and Tourer versions of the C5 will now get Citroen's new chevrons, which update the front end with the brand's new familial face.

Buyers also get the option of 17-inch 'Egee' alloys on Exclusive models, along with a new pearlescent exterior colour called Guaranja Brown. Exclusive cars are also available with a new part-leather upholstery.

The C5 can now be specified with a new eMyWay sat-nav system as part of a Techno Pack option, which also includes USB and Bluetooth. Tourer versions of the C5 can combine the sat-nav with a reversing camera.

Techno Packs cost 700, and are available across all three trims as follows:

VTR Techno Pack: 16-inch alloys, rear parking sensors, eMyWay sat-nav, chrome window sills, and front foglights.

VTR+ Techno Pack: 17-inch alloys, rear parking sensors, eMyWay sat-nav, and chrome window sills.

Exclusive Techno Pack: 18-inch alloys, front parking sensors (rear parking sensors standard on Exclusive), and eMyWay sat-nav.

Meanwhile, Citroen DS5 buyers can select a free option to cut their running costs. Hybrid4 DStyle and DSport versions get 17-inch alloys as a no-cost option, with the smaller diameter wheels reducing CO2 emissions from 107g/km to just 99g/km - making both models exempt from the London congestion charge, while the BiK tax rates fall from 12% to just 10%.

The car maker has also revealed two new Signature packs for DS5 HDi 160 DStyle and DSport models. The Sport Signature and Dark Sport Signature packs cost 650 and bring lowered suspension (by 7mm), black door mirrors and 19-inch alloys.

DS5 THP 200 versions now get THE Dark Sport Signature pack as standard at no extra cost while the Sport Signature pack is available as an alternative no-cost option.

All updates and new options are available now.
