Frankfurt 2011: Citroen DS5 [Live Photos]
text size: A- A+
The DS5 is a five-door hatch, with a coupe-like sloping roofline and raised driving position, that is still fairly compact in dimensions but definitely within the mid-sized segment the DS5 will compete in.
The exterior of the car borrows from the C-SportLounge concept, offering a sleek profile and muscular wheel arches give DS5 an “undoubted air of refined confidence.” At he front, there is a large air intake a large chrome-finished grille housing the chevrons and a new LED light signature. The DS5 comes with chrome-finished ‘sabre’ inserts stretching from the top of each headlamp to the windscreen.
The French carmaker claims that its hybrid system will provide “200bhp; four-wheel drive capability; emission-free electric power for the city; and an acceleration boost function for the open road - with total CO2 emissions of just 99g/km.”
