The French upscale brand recently presented online its facelifted DS5 family and the model has now been officially presented for the world audience during the 2015 edition of the Geneva Motor Show.
The updated premium hatchback comes in a new coat of paint, called Ink Blue and also boasts a new front end that has an even more embossed grille with the DS monogram in the center. The new grille is complimented by the xenon LED headlights with sequential turn indicators that have been already premiered on the facelifted DS3/DS3 Cabrio. The sideline has a new chrome line that joins together the far end of the headlights and the front window. Out in the back we noticed mildly tweaked taillights and a dual chrome exhaust end that sits flush with the bumper. Inside the customers are treated to a new color touch infotainment system that has axed a total of 12 physical buttons – enabling a more clutter free driving experience. There’s a Mirror Screen option – which effectively “copies” what’s displayed on the smartphone’s screen on to the car’s touchscreen display. There are other upscale amenities such as massaging front seats, keyless entry & start, ambient lighting, Denon audio system and dual-zone AC system.
There’s also a wide range of safety and assistance systems on board, such as blind spot monitoring system, lane departure warning, automatic high beam function, intelligent traction control, head-up display and adaptive lights, among others. The engines are the latest and greatest the PSA parent has to offer: a THP 165 with 165 HP (121 kW) and 240 Nm (177 lb-ft) of torque; a BlueHDi 120 churning out 120 HP (88 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft); a more powerful BlueHDi 180 with 180 HP (133 kW) & 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) and the hybrid 4×4 model that gets a 163 HP 2.0-liter turbodiesel and a 37 HP electric motor.
