CITROEN DS5 2011 - Present
Following the successful launches of the CITROËN DS3 and DS4, the CITROËN DS5 is making its entrance. With the network starting up special DS line “Discovery Days”, the DS5 is hitting the screens in an ad that shifts the paradigm in the premium sector as does the car it publicises. The message of the third model in the DS line is “Change era”.
The DS5 mixes hatchback and estate styling resembling a shooting-brake. The styling was influenced by the C-Sportlounge concept car shown at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show. It is 4,530 mm (178.3 in) long and 1,871 mm (73.7 in) wide, dimensions that are similar to those of the Lancia Delta. This is hardly a coincidence: the DS5 is based on the PF2 platform as 3008 is too, not on the C5 as its name would imply.
