Citroen DS5 UK Price


Citroen DS5 offers a whole new experience in this segment, and for that reason alone we think it worth its asking price of between £22,400 for the e-HDi 110 DSign, rising to £32,200 for the range-topping Hybrid4 DSport.

DS5 is lavished with an alternation of gloss blacks and eye-catching chrome-finished details, such as the slender chrome ‘sabres’ that run from the tips of the headlamps to the front windows. It looks utterly magnificent compared to the ordinary Euro boxes. The car  is available from launch with a choice of four refined and efficient Euro V engines – THP 200, e-HDi 110, HDi 160 and the new 200bhp diesel electric Hybrid4.

DS5’s generous equipment specification, premium styling and innovative fuel-saving technologies will appeal directly to the needs of the corporate customer.

CRÉATIVE TECHNOLOGIE

DS5 offers new, innovative features to make driving even more pleasurable and reassuring. These include:

-       Keyless Access & Start, which uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFI) technology to allow drivers to unlock and start/stop DS5 whilst keeping the electronic key separate.
-       A colour head-up display, which projects essential driving information (speed, speed limiter and cruise control settings and navigation settings) in the driver’s direct line of sight. On Hybrid4 models, the display changes from white to blue during ZEV mode.
-       A reversing camera that sends a colour image of the car’s rear view to the navigation display screen.
-       A driver’s seat with electric lumbar adjustment and massage function.
-       Dual-zone automatic air conditioning with three air flow levels (soft, medium, intense).
-       An advanced programmable speed limiter and cruise control system.
-       A new Lane Departure Warning System, which uses an integrated camera to recognise the lines on the road and warns drivers of involuntary lane departure.
-       Smart beams that process images from the built in camera to trigger automatic activation and de-activation of the high beam lamps according to lighting and surrounding traffic conditions.

New DS5 boasts a comprehensive range of audio and telematics equipment, including USB and Bluetooth® connectivity. Citroën’s latest-generation in-car eMyWay navigation comes as standard on level 2 DStyle models. The integrated system features a high-resolution 7-inch colour widescreen, internal memory for map data, speed limit sign reminders and Bluetooth® hands-free and audio streaming for listening to music files stored on mobile phones.

DS5’s audio system features ARKAMYS acoustic processing for authentic sound playback. An optional premium 10-speaker DENON Hi-Fi has also been developed for an even richer soundscape within the cabin.

POWER & PERFORMANCE

DS5’s compact and agile design delivers exemplary handling for a thoroughly engaging driving experience. Dynamically tuned, the precise and direct steering gives drivers the immediate sensation of total and accurate control.

Confident and reassuring, DS5 features active safety equipment (EBD, EBA, ABS, ESP, intelligent traction control) and powerful brakes – thanks in particular to 340mm diameter front discs on most versions.

The e-HDi 110 Airdream features new-generation Stop & Start micro-hybrid technology that reduces CO2 emissions by up to 15% when driving in congested urban areas. The turbocharged, direct injection petrol engine, co-developed with BMW, delivers enjoyable power and performance.

All powerplants are mated to either manual, automatic or EGS six-speed gearboxes.

HYBRID4

DS5 is the first Citroën fitted with Hybrid4 technology. The innovative system delivers outstanding performance and low CO2 emissions from just 99g/km.  Hybrid4 offers financial benefits to both retail and business customers in addition to the impressive fuel economy. The sub-100g/km CO2 model is exempt from VED, the London congestion charge and, for business users, the BiK tax rate is just 10%.

Hybrid4 combines several technologies including:

-       A refined 2.0HDi 160 diesel engine delivering 163bhp
-       A permanent-magnet synchronous 27kW (37bhp) electric motor fitted on the rear axle
-       A Power Train Management Unit, automatically managing the operating modes of the diesel engine and electric motor to achieve the best possible fuel economy
-       A Stop & Start system with a second-generation reversible alternator
-       An automated manual 6-speed gearbox with optimised shifts

Drivers can select from four different operating modes:

AUTO – Activated by default on start up, the Auto mode optimises fuel consumption by automatically switching between the diesel engine and the electric motor.

ZEV – For speeds up to 60km/h (37mph), the Zero Emissions Vehicle mode enables the car to be driven using the electric motor only.

SPORT – This mode uses the electric motor in tandem with the diesel engine to provide extra power when the driver requires more responsive acceleration.

4WD – On rough ground or in low-grip conditions, the 4WD mode increases traction delivering power through all four wheels. The front wheels are powered by the diesel engine, the rear wheels by the electric motor.

SAFETY & SECURITY

New Citroën DS5 achieves a maximum 5-star rating in the latest Euro NCAP tests, including an impressive 97% score in the Safety Assist category.

Offering the highest standards of protection for its occupants, DS5’s extensive safety features include:

-       ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) & Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA)
-       Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with traction control and hill start assist
-       Driver’s, front passenger’s, front lateral as well as front and rear curtain airbags
-       A cornering light function that increases visibility by up to 75° when turning
-       Citroën’s award-winning eTouch Emergency & Assistance system, which automatically or manually makes geo-localised emergency or assistance calls using a built-in SIM card, for rapid intervention in the event of an accident or if the car is immobilised
