This is the new contract hire Citroen C5 X which offers a new direction for the carmaker to meet changing expectations from customers.
The new C5 X manages to combine the appeal with the body of the SUV, along with the status of a saloon.
Citroen says that their C5 X will set a new standard for the crossover segment.
They say that growing numbers of us looking to lease versatile cars with innovative ideas - and want to meet that change.
The new Citroen C5 X car lease range will have a plug-in hybrid engine that produces 225 hp with an all-electric range of 34 miles.
This is also the first Citroen to get the firm's advanced comfort active suspension system which delivers a more enhanced version of their famous 'magic carpet' ride.
There's plenty of space in the new car, plus advanced comfort seats and a lot of detail in the finish.
There are also dual spoilers to give a dynamic look for the rear, and a steeply raked tailgate window.
Essentially, the body for the C5 X delivers notable SUV design features including large wheels and a raised posture.
The boot size is 545 litres and will go some way to help those looking for an alternative to a traditional saloon.
Indeed, 2020 saw the SUV become the most popular body style for cars in the D-segment.
They accounted for 29% of new registrations, while for estate cars the figure is 27.5%, and for saloon models it is 21.6%.
And since nearly every car manufacturer is now developing stylish SUVs and crossovers for buyers, it won't be long before saloons and estates become even rarer purchases.
Citroen also says it has worked on the C5 X's body style to deliver better aerodynamics to boost fuel economy and they've turned to aeronautics to deliver a streamlined profile.
The carmaker has also added a LED V-shaped lighting signature as its new identity which makes this car stand out in the segment.
There's no doubt that the long bonnet helps to point towards design influences from the firm's C4 and C5 Aircross SUVs and the C5 X is an interesting and unusual design for the segment.
If you would like to lease the new Citroen C5 X, then the order books open later this year and the first deliveries will appear early next year.
