Engines available: 1.6 THP
The DS 5 offers a new approach in the premium executive segment. Combining compact body dimensions with a spacious interior, DS5 goes beyond traditional compromises.
Inspired by the C-SPORTLOUNGE first presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2005, this concept car seduced the audience from the outset with its original design, aerodynamics, flowing lines and a spacious interior.
An eye-catching, daring design with inspired detail, the DS 5’s aerodynamic silhouette is bold and assertive. The car’s steely gaze, underlined by a LED light signature, together with its distinctive chrome-finished sabre and rear wing design, add up to an unparalleled elegant presence, akin to an aerodynamic sculpture. The DS 5 also boldly displays its personality in every detail, including the two tail pipes built in to the rear bumper
A passenger compartment entirely specific to the vehicle inspired by aircraft design: cockpit roof, colour head up display, wide upper and lower centre consoles incorporating toggle switches
A unique driving experience thanks to precise dynamic handling and accurate and direct steering
Technology to improve comfort: automatic main beam headlamps, eMyWay navigation system with reversing camera and hands-free access.
A refined object which combines original vision and CITROËN know-how.
Authentic materials such as full grain leather and metal. Exclusive creative features such as the watchstrap design, signature of the DS line
“Tailor-made” personalisation with, for example, a range of 2 type of leather trims (Fauve Club Leather/Red Club Leather) with watchstrap design
Engine : 1.6 THP The petrol engine available on the DS 5 is a performer. The THP 163 with an automatic gearbox develops generous torque at the lowest engine speeds for impressive acceleration and flexibility in use
A unique driving experience! A dynamic ride that makes no compromises on comfort! On the DS 5, 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 DS 5 contributes to these dynamic characteristics. A hydraulic, electric pump delivers a strong, gradual response without being overly sensitive, particularly on straights
The DS 5 is an original and surprising car, an aerodynamic sculpture of taut, flowing lines. The very first glance conveys a promise of dynamic performance. It is a particularly elegant car with a keen gaze, underlined by the lighting signature of its LED lights, its distinctive chrome sword feature, and the design of the rear wing.
Enchanting, appealing and surprising, the DS 5 exercises a natural attraction.
Quality and sophistication are visible in every detail of the DS 5. Alternating trim details in chrome (twin exhaust pipes, sword, etc.) and glossy black (ront and rear strips, weatherstrips, etc.) along with the large diamond-tipped alloy wheels contribute to its elegant, sculptural looks.
The DS 5 is available in four body colors. The polished chrome trim details are also available in a smoky ‘dark chrome’. This is an exceptional vehicle, designed to satisfy and even exceed your main expectations.
The DS 5 is visibly part of the DS line, which also comprises the DS 3 and DS 4. Vehicles in the DS line are creative and original. Their styling is unique and immediately identifiable, inspired and emotional. Meeting high standards in presentation and finish, these vehicles combine original driving sensations with features that are truly useful in everyday use.
Symbolising innovation and know-how, styling and technology, the DS line illustrates a new approach to the future of the car. A future inspired by a genetic heritage whose DNA includes innovation and distinction.
The interior of the DS 5 brings an aircraft to mind, with its cockpit driving position. It combines the driving stance of a coupé with grand touring features: a wrap around fascia, a vertical steering wheel with a wide flat section, information facing the driver, a wide central console, and a small gear lever.
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. The driver thus adopts a more relaxed driving style, without taking his or her eyes off the road.
On board, the imagination takes over. The DS 5 sets itself apart with an original cabin inspired by the world of aerospace design, in keeping with the promise of the exterior styling.
The most symbolic feature is the cockpit roof. A new take on glass roof design, tailored to the DS 5, it features three light wells with a glazed area of 0.58 m². The light wells can be closed individually to create an unusual, personal ambience, by day and by night.
The DS 5 also reaps the benefits of the Marque’s expertise in quality and refinement. Authentic, high-quality materials, such as the smooth, full-grain Club leather and the aluminium used for the trim, with some parts featuring an engine-turned finish.
The DS 5 combines tradition and innovation, without renouncing its own strong personality. Quality and sophistication are visible in every detail. For example, in the exceptional craftsmanship of the ‘watch bracelet’ design seats, a signature feature of the DS line.
Onboard lighting plays an important role in life on board the DS 5. The LED-based interior lighting gradually lights up the cabin. Once on board, the driver simply pushes the hands-free start-up button to bring the cabin to life. The transparent colour head-up display is deployed, and the three digital pads and instrument cluster needle spring into life, creating an ambient lighting display.
Continuing this amazing driving experience, the DS 5 has a quiet onboard ambiance. Particular emphasis was placed on acoustic treatment: soundproofing and noise control focus on the causes of noise emissions or vibrations, and every part of the vehicle has been treated to ensure acoustic quality.
The DS 5 is first and foremost an exceptional vehicle whose intelligent design overcomes the usual compromises between driving pleasure and shared comfort: 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.
This compact design has a twofold advantage: it makes the car more nimble and responsive while cutting fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. But the DS 5 is also a true 5-door, 5-seater model with the accessibility and rear space of a saloon.
Boot and storage The compact exterior design in no way detracts from onboard functions. Quite the contrary. The generous boot has capacity of 468 litres VDA. Looking 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.
Hifi and multimedia The DS 5 addresses all the senses. With its ten loudspeakers, the optional Denon hifi system turns the cabin into an auditorium for demanding music lovers. And the sound spatialisation system of the CD MP3 RDS system with six loudspeakers delivers real listening pleasure.
A double-DVD player is also available as an accessory, providing excellent audio and video quality for passengers in the rear.
eMyWay navigation The DS 5 is also available with a latest-generation built-in navigation system called eMyWay. 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 a mobile phone.
The eMyWay navigation system is combined with a rearview camera that sends colour pictures to the navigation screen. The driver can thus manoeuvre safely.
Intelligent traction control Whatever the type of road or engine, petrol, diesel or Hybrid4, intelligent traction control is a valuable safety aid. Activated on slippery surfaces, the system maximises grip and traction, by managing wheel spin.
Couped with ESP, intelligent traction control ensures optimum vehicle control in the most difficult driving situations.
On the DS 5, the headlights are managed automatically, in line with ambient lighting and traffic conditions.
A miniature camera built into the interior door mirror manages the automatic headlights, switching them on and off as necessary, 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.
Working with the eMyWay navigation system, the camera sends colour pictures to the navigation screen. Relying on the visual information (red lines to show the edge of the rear bumper and blue lines to show the maximum turning circle), the driver can then manoeuvre safely.
The rear-view camera simplifies parking manoeuvres, for complete peace of mind.
Static cornering lighting When cornering at low speeds (40 kph max), the front fog lamps with static cornering lighting provide a second light source to increase visibility inside bends or intersections, by up to 75° on the right or left of the vehicle.
This system is activated automatically when the indicators are turned on or when the steering wheel is at an angle of 60°.
Hands-free access and start-up The DS 5 is intuitive. With the hands-free 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. The driver then simply pushes the START button to start the engine.
