Expert review

Starting off life under the Citroën brand flag, the French manufacturer is now pushing the DS range as a marque in its own right. Revamped for 2015, the largest model of the range, now simply called DS 5, is available in petrol and diesel guises, as well as a four-wheel-drive hybrid. Like the previous model, it straddles established car classes, with a high-riding hatchback body style that aims to rival premium marques with its design flair and interior ambience.
