Citroen DS 5LS Revealed for China

Citroen took over the Carrousel du Louvre, one of the most prestigious spots in Paris, to unveil a new model they’ve designed and built exclusively for China. That should tell you how important that massive market with an insatiable thirst for new cars is to the car makers these days. The new model is the Citroen DS 5LS and it’s a luxury saloon.

The latest addition to the DS family measures 4.7 meters in length and features all the hallmarks of the range with some extra spice inspired by the styling cues of the Numero 9 and Wild Rubis concept cars.  It also harks back to the early DS model with its sculpted grille named ‘DS Wings’ and boomerang-shaped Daytime Running Lights.

To be really honest though, the 5LS does not have the sheer lunacy you’d expect from a Citroen DS. It looks like a slightly kinkier version of the C5.

The interior has more of DS blood in its veins, offering a fancy new design that is anything but boring, and a whole host of comfort and convenience features. The car comes with massaging front seats, airliner-style headrests, rear seats inclined at a 29° angle, an air ioniser and an advanced stereo system. Yu also get keyless access and start, blind spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera, as well as a complete range of multimedia systems.
