From every angle, DS 5 is particularly elegant. The subtly curved roofline merges into a sporty rear roof spoiler, and muscular wheel arches wrap closely around a choice of stunning alloy wheels. At very first glance DS 5 conveys a promise of a luxury car with dynamic performance.
Aerodynamically sculpted, DS 5 is an original and surprising car. The subtly curved roofline merges into a sporty rear roof spoiler, and muscular wheel arches wrap closely around a choice of stunning alloy wheels.
Sweeping chrome finished ‘sabres’ that flow from the top of each headlight to the windscreen highlights DS 5’s purity of line.
Vivid clear LED lights provide an unmistakable new signature for DS 5, underscoring the headlights in a dramatic curved line while encapsulating style with safety.
The driving position of DS 5 resembles the cockpit of an aircraft, combining the driving stance of a coupé with grand touring features: a wraparound fascia, a vertical steering wheel, and a wide central console.
Prepare for take off. The most symbolic feature is the cockpit roof. Overhead controls are manipulated in the same way as on a plane. With three separate sunroofs, each with individual electric blinds, the roof creates a distinctive ambience, day and night.
Quality, craftsmanship and sophistication are visible in every detail of 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 with massage function, a signature feature of DS line, are optional.
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, perfect for outings with family or friends.
DS 5 comes with the 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.
DS 5 is intuitive. With the Keyless access function, it recognises the driver, who simply touches the door handles to open the car. The LED interior lighting then gradually lights up the cabin. You then simply push the START button to start the engine.
On board 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.
All passengers enjoy full protection, with six airbags as standard on all levels of trim: driver and front passenger airbags with lateral airbags in the front seats and two curtain airbags built into the roof. For complete safety, the steering column on your DS 5 retracts in the event of a frontal impact.
In the event of impact, passengers in the DS 5 enjoy maximum protection. The cabin has been reinforced, both to prevent objects penetrating the survival cell and to allow other unoccupied areas to crumple.
DS 5 works hard to keep you safe in all conditions. Standard ABS and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) work together with Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA) to prevent the wheels from locking, while automatic hazard lights come on automatically to warn others under heavy breaking.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC) keeps the car on course and prevents skidding in corners.
DS 5 inspires confidence at every turn.
The powerful Bi-Xenon directional headlights set high standards in safety with twice the brightness of halogen lights. The white beams make night driving less tiring and provide excellent visibility at night or in bad weather. The headlamps follow the steering angle of the car so that you can see around corners, giving you a clear view of the road ahead.
Maximum Safety Rating
The DS5 achieved the maximum 5 star ANCAP safety rating. Its engineering combined with the wide variety of safety assist technologies, makes the DS5 a safer car to protect you and your family at any time.
The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) provides consumers with independent and transparent advice and information on the level of occupant protection provided by vehicles in serious front and side crashes.
In addition to the Hybrid4 full hybrid diesel system, the Citroën DS5 ships with two diesel engines: the e-HDi 115 Airdream (EGS6) with micro-hybrid Stop&Start technology and the HDi 160 (6-speed manual or automatic). It also comes with two petrol engines co-developed with BMW, the THP 155 (6-speed auto) and the THP 200 (6-speed manual).
A unique driving experience! A dynamic ride that makes no compromises on comfort! On the Citroën DS5, springing and damping were developed to ‘read’ the road while remaining easy to control. The car grips the road and conveys a reassuring impression of safety in all circumstances
The crisp, precise steering of the Citroën DS5 contributes to these dynamic characteristics. A hydraulic, electric pump delivers a strong, gradual response without being overly sensitive, particularly on straights
Alongside its exceptional ride and styling, the Citroën DS5 is also equipped as standard with systems dedicated to braking control (electronic brakeforce distributor and emergency braking assistance) and keeping the car on course (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.
