The bold lines of the DS5 bring a radical new meaning to contemporary luxury. It’s a car unlike any other.
An innovative architecture combining compactness (4.53m), 5 real seats and a generous boot volume (468l VDA)
Inspired by aircraft design with a driving position resembling a cockpit, the DS5 boasts a colour head up display, wide upper and lower centre consoles and a light airy ambience all its own.
Precise, dynamic handling and powerful, direct steering add up to a unique driving experience.
The DS5 adds technology to superior comfort, with keyless entry and ignition, eMyWay navigation system with reversing camera, and automatic bi-xenon directional headlamps for greater visibility
Authentic materials sourced from around the world, such as full grain leather and metal, with the unmistakable DS signature line styling.
“Tailor-made” personalisation includes a range of 7 leather trims with some featuring watchstrap design
Distinctive exterior lighting (front and rear light signatures) and interior lighting (LED)
The DS 5 comes with a choice of two engines: 120kW turbo diesel (HDi 160) and the 115kW turbo petrol (THP 155) both paired with a 6 speed automatic transmission
A dynamic ride and a unique driving experience awaits you with the DS 5. Springing and damping have been developed to ‘read’ the road while keeping things easy to control. In other words, the car grips the road and makes you feel safe whatever the driving conditions
The crisp, precise steering of the DS 5 also plays its part, with a hydraulic,electric pump delivering a strong, gradual response without being overly sensitive, particularly on straights.
The DS 5 is also equipped advanced braking control systems as standard, including Electronic Brakeforce Distributor and Emergency Braking Assistance, as well as ABS and ESP. These systems help the driver keep the car under control even in the most difficult driving situations.
Intelligent traction control is also standard. A world exclusive, this system makes driving easier on slippery surfaces and helps the car move forward over snow-covered or wet roads, or on black ice.
Aerodynamically sculpted, the DS 5 is an original and surprising car. As well as being elegant to a tee, the overall look is underlined by the lighting signature of its LED lights, its distinctive chrome sabre feature, and bold rear wing.
Quality and sophistication are inherent in every detail of the DS 5. Alternating trim details in chrome (twin exhaust pipes, sabre trim, etc.) and glossy black (front and rear strips, weatherstrips, etc.) along with the large diamond-tipped alloy wheels contribute to its elegant, sculpted looks.
The DS 5 is available in eight body colours. The end result is one exceptional vehicle, designed to exceed expectation across the board.
Built upon an uncompromising philosophy of innovation and Creative Technologie, the DS line is the epitome of everything Citroën stands for. Along with the DS3 and DS4, the DS5 continues this tradition. Its styling is unique, inspired and immediately identifiable, meeting the very highest standards in presentation and finish, and combining driving pleasure with total functionality.
In fact like each model in today’s DS line, the DS5 harnesses the true Citroën spirit of adventure, luxury and flair in what is, unmistakably, a car for the 21st century.
The driving position of the DS 5 brings to mind the cockpit of an aircraft, combining the driving stance of a coupé with grand touring features: a wraparound fascia, a vertical steering wheel, a wide central console and a small gear lever.
Elsewhere inside, technology goes hand in hand with driveability. The colour head-up display, a particularly innovative feature, projects essential driving information onto a panel in the driver’s direct line of vision. Which means everything you need is immediately at your disposal, leaving you to concentrate on the road.
Prepare for take off. The DS 5 really sets itself apart with an original cabin inspired by the world of aerospace design. The most symbolic feature is the cockpit roof. A new take on glass roof design, it features three light wells with a glazed area of 0.58 m². The light wells can be closed individually to create a distinctive ambience, day or night.
Quality, craftsmanship and sophistication are visible in every detail of the DS 5. True to its heritage, it oozes class with high-quality materials such as the smooth, full-grain Club leather and aluminium trim. Watchstrap design seats, a signature feature of the DS line, are optional.
Onboard lighting plays an important role inside the DS 5. Simply push the hands-free start-up button and the head-up display and instrument cluster spring into life.
To continue the space age experience, the DS 5 boasts an exceptionally quiet onboard ambience. Soundproofing, noise control and vibrations have been reduced to a minimum, and every part of the vehicle has been treated to ensure acoustic quality.
The DS 5 combines comfort and driving pleasure with simple, spacious design. At 4.53m long (25 cm shorter than the Citroën C5 saloon), 1.85m wide and 1.51m tall, this is a car of elegant, compact lines.
As well as making it more nimble and responsive – while at the same time cutting fuel consumption and CO2 emissions – the DS 5 is also a true 5-door, 5-seater with all the rear space of a saloon.
When it comes to space, the generous 468 litre VDA boot is just the start. Beyond the usual storage features, the central console has a double 13-litre compartment under the armrest.
The top part features a jack and USB port to connect mobile appliances. The lower part, which is cooled and lit, lets you store a 1.5 litre bottle.
The high-mounted console in the cockpit roof features two eyeglass holders, and the driving position includes an open cubby just next to the driver’s left hand.
The DS5 is music to your eyes and ears. With its ten loudspeakers, the optional Denon hifi system turns the cabin into an auditorium for the most demanding music lovers. Or if you prefer, a six speaker CD MP3 RDS system comes as standard.
The DS 5 comes with latest-generation built-in navigation system eMyWay as standard. Features include a large 7-inch high-definition colour screen, an internal memory for storing map data, speed limit sign reminders, and Bluetooth audio streaming to listen to music tracks stored on your mobile phone.
The eMyWay navigation system is also combined with a rearview camera that sends colour pictures to the navigation screen, helping you to manoeuvre safely.
Whatever the type of road or engine, petrol or diesel, intelligent traction control is a valuable safety aid. Activated on slippery surfaces, the system maximises grip and traction by managing wheel spin
Coupled with ESP, ITC ensures optimum vehicle control in the most difficult driving situations.
On the DS 5, a miniature camera built into the interior door mirror manages the headlights automatically, switching them on and off as required, in line with ambient lighting and traffic conditions, for safer driving at night.
On board the DS 5, technology goes hand in hand with driveability. The colour head-up display, a particularly innovative feature, projects essential driving information onto a panel in the driver’s direct line of vision.
Make parking a breeze. Working with the eMyWay navigation system, the rearview camera sends colour pictures to the navigation screen. Relying on the visual information provided, the driver can then manoeuvre safely.
The DS 5 is intuitive too. With the hands-free access function, all you need to do touch the door handles to open the car. The LED interior lighting then gradually lights up the cabin. Then simply push the START button to start the engine, and you’re ready to roll.
