The DS brand was designed to "express French style and luxury with beautiful details and exceptional quality" and they've more than fulfilled that brief with the new DS 5. Winner of Top Gear Magazine's "Family Car of the Year" in 2011, it's also proven successful in impressing motoring journalist Quentin Willson who praised its design quirks and innovation in technology.
As DS's first car offering Hybrid4 Technology, you can go up to 3 miles in the silent "ZEV" mode. If you want to avoid road tax and the London Congestion charge, you're best off choosing the 200hp 99g/CO2 Hybrid4. What's more, you'll benefit from a lower petrol bill when you fill up, with a fuel economy of 74.3mg.
With keyless entry and a very high specification, as standard, the cost effective, stylish and eco-friendly DS5 is a great choice for a family who appreciate head-turning looks as much as making cost-savings.
Sophistication is a byword for DS, as they focus on all the little details that make a car exceptional. The 'watch bracelet' design seats, which are the DS's signature, add that extra bit of personality to your daily commute.
This family saloon is a great mix of sports estate, high design and aesthetic innovation. With a boot space of 325 litres, you'll pack as much in as your kids need. Plus all the stuff they don't. Boasting a full, five-star NCAP safety rating, with a 97% rating for safety assist, the DS 5 is as safe as it is stylish.
Compromising on power to maintain efficiency is an alien concept to the DS 5 as it allows you to switch between Auto, ZEV, 4WD and Sport mode to help you get the best from the road ahead.
Drawing inspiration from the aviation industry, the DS 5 has a unique interior, with a cockpit roof. The roof also features three light wells with individual screens allowing you to create your own, personal ambience, day or night.
Interior light signatures and noise-control soundproofing further add to the aeronautical feel. Welcome aboard the DS 5.
