The Citation V has a fine blend of cabin comfort, performance, and reliability. It is a good choice for short trips. The deciding factor for most clients when comparing the Citation V to other similar jets is often the comfort of the cabin. The Citation V’s cabin is 17.4 feet long, 4.8 feet wide, and 4.8 feet high. Compare these numbers to the Hawker 400XP’s cabin dimensions of 15.6 x 4.8 x 4.9 feet, or the Citation Bravo’s dimensions of 15.8 x 4.7 x 4.8 feet – the difference in length is significant. The engineers of the Citation V took advantage of the extra cabin space and installed extra-wide seats that recline 60 degrees and rotate a full 360 degrees. The Citation V isn’t just roomy inside, however: it has an external baggage capacity of 46 cubic feet and an internal capacity of 28 cubic feet. In other words, this private jet can haul about seven suitcases and three golf bags, depending on the specific jet configuration and amount of passengers. Cessna spent considerable time on sound control in its design of the Citation V, using new soundproofing techniques and triple-glazed windows. The result is one of the quietest light private jets available. Other notable features include the two-zone temperature control and the ventilation system designed to eliminate drafts.
