Top Gear magazine have named the new Citroen DS5 ‘Family Car of the Year.’ Top Gear magazine said “the Citroen DS5 is a well grounded, slick, futuristic machine, both inside and out. The inside is quirky but rational, exciting but functional and put together with considerable care, just like the rest of the car. And that makes it very pleasing indeed. All of which goes to show that because the DS5 isn’t a half-hearted copy of a German saloon, it’s the better for it.”
The new Citroen DS5 is the first production Citroen to feature full hybrid diesel technology combining strong performance with extremely low CO2 emissions from just 99g/km. The exterior of the Citroen DS5 features flowing lines and a dynamic profile that includes slender chrome ‘sabres’ that run from the tips of the headlamps to the front windows.
The interior of the Citroen DS5 is inspired by the world of aviation and boasts pilot style overhead switches together with immaculate attention to detail and top quality materials that ensure quality and refinement. The new Citroën DS5 will be launched in the UK in the first quarter of 2012.
