Citroen C5 X - long term review

£40,155 OTR/£42,985 as tested

The Citroen C5 X tells you off if you don't plug it in regularly

The C5-X gets vaguely stroppy in a semi-detached French kind of way if you go a certain number of days without plugging it in. ‘You have not charged up the battery in 17 days, you are missing out on all the eco benefits,’ it says. And it’s right. Citroen claims a range of 37 miles fully charged but right now I’m getting about 18 and they seem to zip by at an unseemly rate. So it’s a non-Gallic shrug from me on that one.
