These are the first spy pictures of the new Citroën DS5, the third model in Citroën’s stylish sub-brand.
The heavily disguised prototype gives nothing away about the styling of the DS5, but it does reveal a high-riding estate-crossover that fits Citroën’s previous descriptions of the car as a “luxurious grand tourer”.
The five-seat DS5 will be based on the current C5 but “not necessarily in terms of design and look”, insiders have revealed to Autocar.
Like the DS4 that will be revealed in final production form at the Geneva motor show in March, the DS5 will ride higher than the car it is based on and its sleek coupé profile will draw inspiration from Citroën’s Hypnos concept.
The difference between DS4 and DS5 will be greater than the gap between DS3 and DS4, and Citroën insiders promise it will be a “significantly different execution” of the DS concept.
