    Citroen DS5 - Would you want one?

    Or do you think this MPV-hatchback-estate crossover is too European-ish?

    http://www.leftlanenews.com/frankfur...troen-ds5.html

    One of the stars of the CitroŽn stand at the Frankfurt Motor Show is the new DS5 luxury crossover. The DS5 is the third member of CitroŽn’s premium DS line and made its world debut at the Shanghai Motor Show last April. The DS5′s styling is heavily influenced by the C-Sportlounge concept car that was shown at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show. It is 177 inches long and 72 inches wide, dimensions that are similar to those of the Peugeot 3008. This is hardly a coincidence: the DS5 is based on the 3008, not on the C5 as its name would imply. Both the 3008 and the DS5 were given five-star crash test ratings by the EuroNCAP organization, Europe’s rough equivalent to the U.S.’s IIHS.

    I actually really like this design... With a decent engine/tranny combo, I would certainly consider it... And I wouldn't normally consider a crossover for a personal purchase... Looks sharp!

    If it's based on the compact platform, it doesn't have hydractiv suspension. Pass.

    Re: Citroen DS5 - Would you want one?

    I know that Europeans love their hatches... but Citroen is really crowding their lineup with similar-looking 5-door hatches. The DS4 and C4 even appear to share front end elements (hood, headlights), so I'm starting to wonder how succesful the DS lineup will be.

    That said, I quite like the DS5, it's got some very ogirinal styling elements, and the rear side wondows are nicely integrated.

    looks great - just a bit too big for me...

    ...wonder how hard it'd be to get a custom waterfall grille?

    This car is absolutely gorgeous, and I love the fact that you have the option to keep it in electric mode.

    It looks really good, but it still reminds me of a Toyota Venza a little too much.

    It looks pretty cool and if it had enough cargo and passenger room and the right drivetrain I would be interested.
    Research is what I am doing when I don't know what I am doing.

    I see it as advancing some cool design themes.

    I love it and would absolutely buy one (that or the C5) if I had the money...and lived in Europe.

    Did I mention how I hate that Citroen doesn't fit Hydractiv in this one? Did I?
