Customers have a choice of four engines – a 1.6-litre petrol THP with 197bhp, e-HDi diesel with 108bhp, HDi, which produces 158bhp and the new 197bhp diesel electric Hybrid4 unit, which emits 99g/km Co2. All models will be available with either manual, automatic or electric gearbox system (EGS) six-speed gearboxes.
Three trim levels are offered and include DSign, DStyle and DSport. Base model DSign trim includes keyless entry and start, cruise control, automatic dual-zone climate control and automatic wipers and headlights, while DStyle adds part leather seats, sat-nav, rear parking sensors, a panoramic sunroof and a reversing camera. Range-topping DSport versions include a head-up display, front parking sensors, full leather upholstery and electric heated seats.
External features of the new model include the car’s distinctive chrome ‘sabres’ that run from the tips of the headlamps to the front windows, as well as a chrome grille and LED daytime running lights. Eight body colours are available and six alloy wheel designs (ranging from 16 to 19-inches in diameter) can be chosen. The car’s chrome flourishes are also available in dark chrome.
Inside, the DS5 gets an aviation-inspired roof, which features overhead switchgear. Nine upholstery options in cloth and leather are offered.
The petrol THP 200 version is available in Dstyle and Dsport trim only and is mated to a six-speed manual ‘box. It emits 155g/km Co2 and costs from £25,900.
