2007 Citroen C5

A nice picture of the new C5 that shows an elegant design. Although something is strange here, the car doesn't look French, it looks too Germanic. But wait, yes there are the weird mirrors for that French weirdness touch. Was just wondering on a thing: when developing stories on the Laguna we were bitching about the windows being too big and now we bitch about this car being too Teutonic. Is it a good idea for French manufacturers to emulate Germanic design features or should they develop their own identity? The new Laguna III and the Peugeot 308 are what we could call "proudly French designs". We will see how these cars and the C5 do in the market for a conclusion.
