2015 Citroen DS 5 Side

The upgraded 2015 Citroen DS 5 is the first model to be badged solely under the DS brand and is scheduled for its first public appearance at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show early next month.

‘Unique creation with expressive, hypnotic styling’

Changes to the model include a new hexagonal grille surrounded in chrome, and features a large DS logo in its centre. The new DS 5 also features the brand's new light signature, with headlights combining LED and Xenon technologies, along with scrolling indicators. The rear sports wide tracks, slightly modified taillights and twin tailpipes integrated within the rear bumper.

Inside, the cabin showcases a new seven-inch touchscreen and a new colour touchdrive interface which has eliminated 12 physical buttons to enable a less cluttered layout. The cockpit roof features three light wells which crate a unique ambience that can be tailored to individual requirements. The car also offers massaging front seats with memory function, heated side mirrors, keyless entry & start, electrochrome interior mirror, Denon audio system and dual-zone AC system.

Safety features

The 2015 Citroen DS 5 has also gained a range of advanced equipment including a blind spot monitoring system, lane departure warning, automatic high beam function for the headlights, intelligent traction control, head-up display, reversing camera, hill-start assist, adaptive headlights and stability control.

Engines

The DS5's engine range has also been completely revised. The line-up consists of the latest engines from the PSA Group, including a 121 kW 1.6-litre THP 165 petrol fitted with a six-speed auto, while a THP 210 with a manual gearbox is said to arrive later in the year in 2015.

There’s also a BlueHDi 120 producing 88 kW and 300 Nm of torque through a standard six-speed manual, while a more powerful BlueHDi 180 delivers 133 kW and 400 Nm of torque and is also available with the six-speed auto. The Hybrid 4x4 flagship model has been carried over with no changes, delivering a total of 149 kW from a 163 HP 2.0-liter diesel working with a 28 kW electric motor.

The facelifted 2015 Citroen DS 5 will be unveiled to the public on March 3 during the Geneva Motor Show.
