The next model to join Citroen’s premium sub-brand range will be the DS5 and there will be a 200bhp diesel hybrid option available.
The DS5 will be the first Citroen model to feature PSA’s HYbrid4 diesel hybrid technology. It also expands Citroen's DS range to three, in addition to the DS3 and DS4.
Citroen said it has incorporated Gran Turismo coupe styling with the practicality of a sportwagon and the DS5 will go up against German executive saloon rivals.
The hybrid system delivers 200bhp; four-wheel drive capability; full electric city driving; and an acceleration boost function for the open road - with total CO2 emissions of 99g/km.Prices are expected to range between £23,000 and £30,000 when the DS5 goes on sale in early 2012.
