Immediately distinguishable, the New DS 5 has an exceptional exterior and interior design. Expressive from every angle, its aerodynamically sculpted attracts admiring looks wherever it goes and exhausts a dynamic and smooth road handling.
On the New DS 5, the front end gains character and prestige. The vertical grille proudly bears the DS Wings — emblem of the DS brand and a nod to the original DS.
Underlining the assertive looks of the front end, the hexagonal DS Wings grille gains a sculpted, graphic design that is truly unique. A chrome surround further enhances the elegant looks of the grille, which is extended by two wings of light inside the headlamps.
The New DS 5 features the brand’s new light signature with headlamps combining LED and Xenon technologies with scrolling indicators – signals unique on the market- , and LED fog lamps with static intersection lighting.
Designed to resemble stones in their setting, these headlamps are key features in the identity of the front face. Meeting high standards in lighting quality, they also — and above all — illustrate the refinement and attention to detail of DS.
The rear view further underlines the status of the New DS 5 with its wide tracks and twin tailpipe integrated with the rear bumper. The rear view is further enhanced by a signature comprising six light guides.
The interior of the New DS 5 brings to mind the world of aerospace design. The most symbolic feature is the cockpit roof. With its three light wells, the roof creates a unique ambience tailored to individual requirements, by day and by night.
The driving position was designed around the driver. The main controls are grouped on two central consoles, one low and one overhead, with specially designed buttons, dials and toggle switches, inspired by the aerospace industry.
A touchdrive interface for a simplified ergonomic design
The intuitive design of the new 7″ touchscreen makes it simple to use.
This new screen has allowed the fascia and central console to be streamlined and simplified, creating more storage space for greater convenience in everyday use.
The New DS 5 is one of the few cars offering a choice of 3 qualities of leather in eight combinations:
– grained leather, full-grained Nappa leather, and semi-aniline leather, one of the most beautiful qualities available and one rarely used in the automotive world other than by a few luxury car manufacturers.
Thus seen for the first time:
– New decoration for the doors and central console, with the DS monogram as the pattern motif, the logo newly displayed, and care given to every detail of the car;
– New upholstery, with Semi Aniline leather finished with the watchstrap design unique in the automotive world and found exclusively in the DS range.
The high-quality materials used in the New DS 5 add to its distinctiveness and make it an ambassador for the Brand’s craftsmanship :
– Aluminium on the door grips, decorated consoles, metal on the gear lever knob and interior door handles;
– Supple foamed material agreeable to the touch on the dashboard;
– Sound-proofing and noise absorption have been dealt with in every detail so that sounds are soft and muted.
The New DS 5 has the blind spot monitoring system ( Optional ) , a state-of-the-art safety feature providing increased visibility. A symbol lights up in one of the door mirrors to warn the driver that a car or motorcycle is present in the blind spot.
The second-generation lane departure warning system in the New DS 5 is more sensitive. If the car crosses the road line, the driver feels a warning vibration in his seat.
By improving the grip of the tyres and reducing wheelspin, this system combined with ESC helps to get started on slippery surfaces, regardless of the type of road or engine.
When cornering at low speeds (up to 40 km/h), the fog lights with static cornering lighting project an extra beam of light on the inside of the corner or intersection.
The tyre pressure monitoring system checks tyre pressure continually during driving to detect any under-inflation that could adversely impact the stability of the vehicle and the safety of the driver and passengers.
The keyless access and start system on the New DS 5 recognises the driver as he approaches the car. Touch a door handle and the door opens, then simply push the start button to start the engine.
With the mini camera built into the windscreen, the headlights on the New DS 5 are switched on and off automatically according to the light and driving conditions.
The reversing camera sends a colour image to the new 7″ touchscreen. The driver can then use coloured visual guides to back up safely.
A technology that increases safety by improving visibility and convenience.
A very innovative – and very impressive – technology borrowed from fighter planes, the Head-up Display allows the driver to keep his eyes on the road at all times by projecting essential driving information on a panel in his direct line of vision.
The colour Head-up Display panel, the three digital dials, and the needle in the control cluster all light up when the “start” button is pushed… Fascinating!
