Citroen DS5 (2012-Onwards)

The Citroen DS5 was unveiled at the 2011 Shanghai Motor Show in April. The show car featured a one-off bespoke paint finish with individual leather trim as well as a huge set of 20-inch specially designed alloy wheels.

It is Citroens latest addition to the DS line. Based on the C-SportLounge concept car and like the original concept its interior is more like the cockpit of a fighter jet with two consoles. One of which is a colour heads-up display, projecting information into the driver’s line of vision.

The driving position is racy with a near vertical steering wheel. There is also a new tri sunroof system where the front occupants get individual sunroofs and the rear passengers get a single large one. The whole interior has a real premium feel with considered attention paid to the quality of materials.

The design of the DS5 is a mix between an Estate and a Hatchback and with five doors and a boot capacity of up to 465-litres it is designed to be practical as well as stylish. On the the outside looks are quite aggressive, with LED running lights featured on the front end much like the DS3. There is a wide oversized grille and big chrome headlights with chrome finishers that run from the lights and right up to the windscreen.Then there's nice big wheels and wide wheel arches, leading to a striking rear end with two large tailpipes set into the bumper.

With a choice of some frugal diesel engines and  the new  hybrid technology engine, allowing for 200bhp and four wheel drive but emissions still as low as 99g/km which all goes to offer performance and low running costs .

For: Stands out from the crowd with its unique looks. Very good to drive. Premium detailed interiors. Frugal diesel engines wit low emissions.

Against: Poor ride on rough roads. Cramped for rear passenger space and lack of rear headroom. Limited boot space for hybrid models, Restricted rear view.
