Citroen DS5 2017: Road Test, Prices and Consumption
Citroen DS5 2017 – A full and complete account of our road test of the new Citroen DS5, the flagship brand of the baby of the group PSA. Car totally renewed, which comes with a livery and curves from premium car to which are added, however, even these costs.
NEW CAR, NEW ENGINE AND NEW GEAR
What we have had the pleasure of driving was the Citroen DS5 2017 with the new engine 2.0 Blue HDi 180 hp mated to a new automatic transmission EAT6. A novelty in short, who impressed us for its efficiency but also for its dynamic road.
Compared to the previous generation, the outside line was only touched up, but with a clear objective: to give style to a car call to tow a brand newborn, something of no small importance in a market that is increasingly saturated but who, at the same time, need for novelty. Therefore, room for the new, elegant grille, which stands on the DS logo instead of the Double Chevron which extended laterally. For the rest ranging from chrome headlights to the posts and the small rear window and rear exhaust fake at the bottom.
Citroen DS5 2017 Interior
Define the cockpit of the New 2017 Citroen DS5 as a living room is almost an understatement. The interior is the tip, the part of the strength of this new car. First, the driver’s seat. Here we have three large dials: one for the tachometer which also shows the gear engaged; then one with the onboard computer and another with the digital speedometer.
Leather seats with coatings that appear to reproduce the typical design of a strap of a chronograph, 7-inch touch screen with multimedia system and control box above the head of the driver and passenger. All this serves for the adjustment of internal lights, glass roof and the display. Many commands (maybe too many …) for basic functions.
The effect of stunning, though, it’s all confirmed. The comfort continues in the rear seat, where space abounds if there are two people, while you are comfortably in three dimensions but with obviously reduced.
GUIDANCE RAISED – When driving a new Citroen DS5 2017 is always a special experience, as it is a car that offers guidance slightly raised, almost SUV. Actually, in the end, the guide is very easy, thanks to the help of the new automatic transmission fluid that makes the change. The steering wheel has a very particular dimension, since it is big but cut down like a sports car: a sleeping uncomfortable if we are dealing with many twists and turns, but still allows us a guide altogether smooth and good.
NEW AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION EAT6 – Two words on the new automatic transmission EAT6: provides a pleasant driving experience, without any particular snags. The problem, however, arises when you want to squeeze firmly on the accelerator, because it creates a tear is not too pleasant. In general, however, since it is not a sports car but a flagship, the change is more than good.
Citroen DS5 2017 Fuel consumption
We had a pleasant surprise as citroen DS5 fuel consumption : after about 800 km (from Milan to Catholic and return), we recorded an excellent 20 km / l, which combined with soundproofing crazy engine inclines us to give almost A Ten as regards drivability and fuel consumption.
The New Citroen DS5 2017, equipped with 180 hp diesel engine, automatic transmission EAT6 Chic and Sport trim, the one that we had in our hand, is not a car for those looking for something cheap, indeed. The list price starts at 41,450 Euros; but it is the top of the range with the most powerful engine.
