Citroen DS5 EuroNCAP Rating


The fancy new Citroen DS5, one of the coolest and prettiest family cars you can buy today, gets the seal of approval from EuroNCAP.

The New Citroën DS5 has achieved a 5-star safety rating in the latest round of Euro NCAP crash tests, along with an impressive 97% score in the ‘Safety Assist’ category. This is the third model in Citroen’s DS line to be awarded five-star rating.

Citroën DS5 boasts dynamic and reassuring road manners, a reinforced body structure and a range of high-performance, protection-enhancing technologies.  Safety features include Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, Emergency Brake Assist, Intelligent Traction Control, an advanced speed-limiter/cruise control system and a cornering light function. No wonder then it did so brilliantly.

Citroen press release:

The strong Euro NCAP safety results were achieved through ‘Créative Technologie’ equipment available exclusively on Citroën DS5, including:

  • A new-generation Lane Departure Warning System that ‘reads’ the road using a camera built into the upper part of the windscreen, which alerts drivers when they drift off line.
  • An automatic high-beam function that, using images processed from the same camera, activates and deactivates the high-beam setting in line with lighting conditions and surrounding traffic.
  • A colour head-up display that shows key driving information – such as speed, speed-limiter/cruise control and navigation system settings – in the driver’s field of vision.

Everyday peace of mind is ensured by innovative services including the Citroën eTouch Emergency & Assistance system, which earned DS5, together with Citroën’s other latest models, the Euro NCAP Advanced award. This accolade is given to innovative systems that ensure the highest safety levels, whilst retaining mass market affordability.  The Citroën eTouch system automatically or manually makes emergency or assistance calls, using a built-in SIM card, for precise vehicle localisation and rapid intervention in the event of an accident or if the car is immobilised.

Linda Jackson, Citroën UK’s Managing Director, commented; “Attention to safety is paramount in any Citroën model and we’re delighted that New DS5 has performed so well in the latest Euro NCAP tests.  This stunning new car will soon be joining an exciting product line that sets some of the highest standards for safety in their respective classes.”

New Citroën DS5 will make its European premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show on Tuesday 13 September and goes on sale in the UK early in 2012.
