The DS 5 is a distinctively styled and extremely well-built vehicle from Citroën that possesses a sumptuous interior and offers very excellent ride quality. This large family car also comes with a range of economical engines, and is available in Elegance and Prestige trim levels.
The DS 5’s executive good looks include a twin-pleated bonnet, sleek headlights, a front grilled bisected by a body-coloured bumper and a three-part glass roof. Lightweight and durable 18-inch alloy wheels come as standard with Elegance grades (except models fitted with a BlueHDi 120 engine, which feature 17-inch alloys). Privacy glass, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, cornering-assist front fog lamps and electrically folding and heated door mirrors are all standard inclusions.
Access to the DS 5’s upmarket five-person cabin is effortless thanks to Citroën’s keyless entry system, which also enables engine ignition. The driver benefits from an adjustable steering wheel and height-adjustable seating, which also provides lumbar support. A leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-operated windows and automatic dual-zone air-conditioning are among a variety of standard inclusions. With all seats up, the DS 5 features a 465-litre boot. Thanks to 60/40 split-folding rear seats, cargo capacity can swiftly be increased to 1,288 litres.
A range of available engines include the most affordable option, a 1.6-litre 120bhp diesel unit, paired with six-speed manual transmission. This produces 300Nm of torque, and returns up to 70.6mpg and 104g/km of CO2. Even more frugal is another diesel option, a 2.0-litre 200bhp engine that returns as much as 72.4mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 103g/km.
Safety and technology
A seven-inch touchscreen, DAB digital radio, a CD player, Bluetooth, USB, AUX and MirrorLink connectivity and satellite navigation are all included as standard.
The DS 5 comes with a five-star rating, as awarded by Euro NCAP. Driver aids include Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control, Hill-Start Assist, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and rear-parking sensors. Among the vehicle’s passive safety features are multiple airbags, ISOFIX mounting points, seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters and seatbelt reminders. An alarm is also included, helping to keep the vehicle secure.
