DS5 is the first Citroën to feature HYbrid4 diesel hybrid technology, providing enhanced performance and class-leading environmental credentials.

The advanced HYbrid4 system delivers 200hp; four-wheel drive capability; emission-free electric power for the city; and an acceleration boost for the open road - with total CO2 emissions of just 99g/km.

The DS line has already redefined expectations in the supermini segment with DS3. It also combined the style of a coupé and the flexibility of a five-door hatchback with the DS4. Progressing to the executive segment, DS5 targets customers looking for a bold car with a modern approach to design.

Based on the futuristic C-SportLounge concept car, the DS5 exterior flowing lines, a sleek profile and muscular wheel arches – which wrap around large (16-19”) wheels.

The front-end has an oversized air intake, a large chrome grille housing the chevrons and a new LED light signature. As distinguishing feature, DS5 boasts chrome ‘sabre’ inserts stretching from the top of each headlamp to the windscreen.

The rear emphasizes its width with two tailpipes built into the rear bumper and highlighted by six light guides.

The driver-focused cockpit features a coupé-like driving position with a near-vertical steering wheel and a wide center console. An array of buttons, switches, scroll wheels and toggles are grouped on two consoles, one low down and one above the driver’s head, ‘pilot-style’. The colour Head-Up Display projects essential information into the driver’s line of sight and the ambient lighting bathes the cockpit in a mix of red and white.

Each detail has been carefully considered, with premium materials such as fine-grain Club leather and exclusive designs like the ‘watchstrap’ seat upholstery - a signature touch of the DS line that is unique to the market.
