Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags, side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and a driver knee airbag are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD), brake assist and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Chest-protecting side airbags are available for outboard rear seats. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats.

Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.

Pedestrian Summary

A separate pedestrian impact test is conducted. This test estimates injuries to pedestrians struck by a vehicle travelling at 40 km/h. The more stars the better (maximum 4 stars).

The C5 was awarded no points for the protection offered by the front edge of the bumper to pedestrians' legs. The bonnet surface was also rated as predominantly poor in the area likely to be struck by an adult's head. However, the bumper scored maximum points.
