DS 5: DARE TO AMAZE, ALWAYS ATTRACT
- Surprising, attractive and blessed with a unique personality, the CITROËN DS 5 fits perfectly with a new phase in the development of the DS line, out to conquer new territories.
- Innovative and visionary, the CITROËN DS 5 makes no bones about its singularity and prestige. It is an object of pleasure, a strongly emotive vehicle that stirs the imagination, transforming each trip into a unique journey.
A UNIQUE CREATION
An aerodynamic sculpture with natural appeal
The CITROËN DS 5 is equally charismatic inside, with a remarkable cabin fully consistent with the exterior styling. The driver-focused driving station merges coupé seating with Gran Turismo design, expressed in a vertical steering wheel with a broad wheel centre, a raised floor and a wide central console housing a gearstick positioned in the natural continuation of the driver’s forearm.
The DS 5 is a standout vehicle designed to go beyond the traditional compromises between driving pleasure and ride comfort. And the result is an overwhelming success.
Motorists increasingly want cars that are easy to use day to day but with no sacrifice on driving sensations. Reconciling fun at the wheel with comfort, aesthetics with practicality and performance with economy is an art unto itself.
The DS 5 is a decidedly unique car.
Technology at the service of well-being
The CITROËN DS 5 uses the finest in cutting-edge technology to ensure the well-being of passengers, providing pleasure and relaxed driving together with safety and peace of mind. For stable and efficient roadholding, it is equipped with a CITROËN innovation, intelligent traction control, coupled with ESP. And to stay connected in all circumstances, it also features the CITROËN eTouch service, a safety system available in the majority of launch countries including localised emergency and assistance calls.
The first CITROËN with Hybrid4 technology
The DS 5 is the first CITROËN to be powered by Hybrid4 technology, a full-hybrid drivetrain combining the road performance of an HDi diesel engine with the efficiency of an electric motor. The result is dynamic driving sensations – 200 bhp, four drive wheels, electric city driving, acceleration boost function – and low CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km.
STIRRING THE IMAGINATION
The CITROËN DS 5 stirs the imagination with its design and stylistic inspirations.
A childhood dream
The CITROËN DS 5 instantly surprises, inspires and attracts the onlooker. The imaginative feel is strong on board with an aeronautics-inspired atmosphere, particularly evident in the cockpit roof, organised into three wells of light creating an original and personalised lighting ambience day and night.
Driving in the limelight
Driving is a quasi-theatrical, stage-like experience. LED lighting gradually lights up the cabin and a simple push on the START button brings the interior to life. The transparent Head-Up Display screen activates, projecting essential driving information (on speed, cruise control/speed limiter recommendations, navigation aid) in colour into the driver’s line of sight. The digital displays and the dial needle spring into action. And the ambient lighting plunges the driver’s station into a universe of reds and whites. The journey has begun.
DS 5 WHITE PEARL: AN OUTSTANDING CREATION
For its debut motor show in Shanghai, the DS 5 appeared in a one-off livery, expressing all of the brand’s expertise.
The CITROËN DS 5 White Pearl is a true artistic creation, an automotive sculpture cloaked in a silver robe with pearlescent reflections. The elegance of the body styling is underlined by an understated ballet of grey chrome detailing and dark lacquer touches. The sabre of the DS 5 Pearl was crafted like a hand-guilloched jewel. As the sabre tapers the DS motif fades, enhancing the splendour of the chrome as it approaches the tip of the headlamp. The DS 5 White Pearl also sports specially designed, DS-stamped 20-inch wheels, with polished surfaces and lacquered recesses for an intangible sense of depth.
The result is a bold creation, made to amaze and attract.
