New Citroen DS5 to make its UK debut at the Top Gear Live this November

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 19, 2011

The New Citroën DS5 is set to make its premiere in the United Kingdom on the Citroën display stand at Top Gear Live this November, showing up at the ExCel London and the NEC Birmingham sites. This will be the UK public’s first time to view one of the most expected new vehicles for 2012 -- the peak of the exclusive DS range and the top flagship model for Citroën.

Exclusively designed, beautifully appointed and full of "Créative Technologie", DS5 is a resolutely contemporary and original approach to the premium executive vehicle. DS5 is Citroën's first production to offer full-hybrid diesel technology, incorporating strong performance and extremely low carbon dioxide emissions from only 99g/km.

Influenced by the realm of aircraft including pilot-style overhead switches, DS5’s cabin combines ergonomic functionality with aesthetic style. Perfect attention to detail and genuine high grade materials make sure that an instantaneous impression of refinement and quality is achieved. DS5 is an aerodynamic work of art with flowing lines, a dynamic profile and taut features. Eye-catching details include slender chrome "sabres" running from the tips of the headlamps to the front windows.

The model’s small and nimble design provides meticulous soundproofing and excellent handling for a completely appealing driving experience. The new Citroën DS5 will be introduced in the UK early next year.

The Top Gear Live will be graced by Clarkson, Hammond, May and The Stig, among other celebrities. It will be held on November 11 to 13 at NEC Birmingham and November 24 to 27 at ExCeL London. Further details are available at
