Most people know him as Oby-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars, but Ewan McGregor is also a guy who's passionate about motorbikes. He's the guy Citroen chose to promote their slow-selling DS5 Hybrid4, the current flagship of the DS5 range.
The idea for this commercial is that Ewan is being interrogated by the lovely Vinessa Shaw, like a international spy trying to keep his cover. Come to think of it, McGregor would have made for a really cool James Bond.

We also drove a stunning pearl white Citroen DS5 last year. If you'd like to know if it's as good as Ewan says, just read our full Test Drive.

The car is built on the same platform as the Peugeot 3008 and uses a combination between a 2-liter diesel engine and an electric motor mounted over the rear wheels to deliver 200 hp and fuel consumption of just 3.4 liters per 100 km.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
