Citroen DS5 Spied in Sweden

Up in sweden our spies have captured the new Citroen DS5, the third model in the DS line-up.

The DS5 will use the same Citroen C5 platform as the recently spied Peugeot 508 Allroad, the design includes an higher ride height and a more coupé-like shape to recognise the DS design cues.

Powering the new DS5 will be conventional petrol and diesel engines, the DS5 will be Citroen’s first production hybrid, using a 200bhp diesel unit which drives the front wheels with the electrical drive from the rears.

A brand new updated hydropneumatic suspension is also on the cards to give independant suspension control for comfort or sea sickness.

We expect a production concept to be released in Shanghai Motor Show in April, we expect the production world premier at Frankfurt later this year.
