Citroen unveiled the all-new 2015 DS5 model, the first vehicle to be sold without the Citroen logo. The DS brand will become a standalone marque, fighting with powerful names like Audi, BMW and Mercedes.
The DS flagship model is a facelift of the old model, with a new front end, that features sculpted, vertical grille with the DS monogramme in the centre and the Xenon Full LED headlights.
From the side, the key styling feature is the slender, chrome sabre running from the tip of the headlamp to the front window. The rear view impresses with wide tracks, striking rear light signature and twin tailpipes integrated within the rear bumper.
The interior of new DS5 is inspired by the world of aerospace design. With its three light wells, the roof creates a unique ambience that can be tailored to individual requirements, day or night. The driving position was designed 100% around the driver.
Its colour touchdrive interface provides easy access to all in-car functions, from navigation to music. It also simplifies the interior layout, with 12 fewer buttons on the dashboard and fascia.
This latest-generation screen also includes new Mirror Screen technology. This function lets users copy smartphone content onto the screen and ensures all relevant apps can be used safely when driving.
The new DS5 has electric memory and massaging front seats, keyless entry & start, heated door mirrors, an electrochrome interior mirror, ambient lighting, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and a Denon Hi-Fi system.
From launch, customers will be able to choose between six Euro 6 engines and gearbox combinations, with torque of between 240 and 400Nm. The range will be extended at the end of 2015 with a new 210hp engine, the THP 210 S&S 6-speed manual.
