Niche Citroen-related brand DS officially launched in October 2015 with the launch of the revised DS 5.

The revised DS5 – which was still based on the PF1 platform which also underpined the Peugeot 508 – had been updated with the PSA Group’s most potent diesel, the 133kW/400Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder ‘BlueHDi 180HP’.

Paired with an Aisin-developed six-speed automatic gearbox, the engine could send the DS5 from 0-100km/h in a claimed 9.2 seconds, and on to a top speed of 220km/h, while returning an official combined-cycle fuel economy figure of 4.5 litres per 100 kilometres. Carbon dioxide emissions were rated at 118 grams per kilometre.

Along with the new drivetrain, a new 7.0-inch infotainment screen, DAB+ digital radio, new 18-inch rims, a new LED headlight and daytime running light (DRL) array and blind spot monitoring had been added.
