Citroen has revealed the eagerly anticipated third model in its innovative and distinctive DS line - the DS5, and Citroen says it is designed to express the full extent of its ‘Créative Technologie’.
Citroen boasts that the new DS5 combines ground-breaking style, rewarding driving dynamics, and exceptional refinement with innovative engineering solutions.
Uniquely, the DS5 is the first Citroën model to feature hybrid4 diesel hybrid technology, providing enhanced performance and class-leading environmental credentials. The advanced hybrid4 system delivers 200bhp; four-wheel drive capability; emission-free electric power in urban environments; and an acceleration boost function for the open road - with total CO2 emissions of 99g/km.
The DS line has already pushed expectations in the supermini segment with DS3, and combines the style of a coupé and the flexibility of a five-door hatchback with DS4.
Progressing to the executive segment, DS5 targets customers looking for a really bold and assertive car with a resolutely modern approach to vehicle design. The dynamic exterior with flowing lines, a sleek profile and muscular wheel arches - which wrap themselves around the large (16” to 19” ) alloy wheels - give DS5 an undoubted air of refined confidence.
Reconciling fun at the wheel with comfort and practicality, DS5 opens up new horizons with pioneering architecture, including a sleek, compact body and a driving position worthy of a Gran Turismo coupé. In addition, it has a roomy boot, reminiscent of a sportwagon. It also has five real seats, four doors, and all the access and modularity of a hatchback.
