First Citroen DS5 reviews now online

Citroen flew out five competition winners to the South of France to get behind the wheel of the new, premium family car earlier this year.

They were then asked to review the car and the videos have now been posted onto a dedicated Citroen DS5 website.

The Citroen DS5 is the third car to use the new DS Line designs and badges after the success of the Citroen DS3 compact hatchback and the Citroen DS4 small family car.

The new DS5 is also the largest model in the DS Line and comes with five seats, five doors and a hatchback rear end.

It also comes with a diesel-hybrid powertrain, only the second car in the UK to boast the green technology after the Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4 was launched last year.

The Citroen DS5 uses the same system as the Peugeot and as a result comes with four-wheel drive, 200bhp but still delivers CO2 emissions below 100g/km.

Melina Kacherou-Carage, Head of Digital Marketing at Citroen UK, commented; “With this competition, we wanted to let members of the public be among the first to get behind the wheel of New DS5 and to tell us what they really think of the car.”

The winners’ views have now been posted ahead of the car’s UK launch on 2 April. The Citroen DS5 can be ordered now from Citroen dealerships in the UK from £22,400.

New Citroen DS5 prices rise to £24,900 for mid-range specifications and a range-topping D Sport model costs £28,000 on-the-road.
