New Citroen DS5 in detail

Tuesday, 3 May 2011 4:46 PM

The new Citroen DS5 is big yet frugal; wild-styled yet attractive, but still delivers enough real-world economy for real buyers to take note

Citroen’s latest foray into the executive car market, the new DS5, was revealed at this year’s Shanghai Motor Show.

It borrows unashamedly from the original DS unleashed onto the world back in 1955. And this is no bad thing — if you visit the Volkswagen Autostadt in Wolfsburg, Germany, you will see that VW has very magnanimously displayed all manner of marques, including a stunning early DS in sage green.

The long, swooping lines, the spacious, well-appointed interior and long, elegant body of the original DS are strongly reflected in the Citroen DS5, with the coupe-hatchback, huge ‘n’ groovy alloy wheels and aggressive grille bringing the design firmly into the 21st Century.

While its looks are rooted in Citroen’s stylish design heritage, the brand has kept its eye firmly on the future with one of the powertrain options — the DS5 is the first Citroen to go on sale with the option of a HYbrid4 diesel hybrid engine. It offers 200bhp, four-wheel drive capability and at city-driving speeds, the car can be driven as an emission-free electric vehicle.

For the highway, there is an acceleration boost function and it boasts total CO2 emissions of just 99g/km, a solid result for a car of this size — it’s 4.52m long and 1.85m wide.

On the inside, Citroen is promising a driver-oriented cockpit, a user-friendly layout for the assorted buttons with one central console and one above the driver’s head, pilot style, and then there’s the most important button of all — a stop-start button that lights up the cabin in red and white. The head-up display projects information in the driver’s line of sight on the windscreen. On a utilitarian level, the DS5 has a 465 litres of luggage space and five proper seats.

It’s all part of what Citroen calls the C-SportLounge concept.

Given that this car is pitching at the more affluent end of the market, fine-grain Club leather and “watchstrap” leather detailing on the seats have been added to ensure it’s a step up from the supermini DS3 and the practical DS4.

The model on show in Shanghai was in a one-off livery featuring Citroen’s DS5 White Pearl colour, 20-inch alloy wheels and the interior was in ebony-coloured leather with silver overstitching.

It is expected that the new DS5 will be on sale in the UK at the end of 2011.
