Citroen crossover gets DS treatment and the 5 moniker

With the New York Auto Show constantly surprising us you’d expect that Citroen would have a new model ready to be unveiled as preshow to it, but you’d be wrong.

Citroen gave us a new crossover, called it special since it’s part of the DS family and they plan to reveal it, shock of shocks, at the Shanghai Motor Show.

Now I should mention this from the outset, I like Citroen, I like what they’ve been doing styling and technology wise but I think that recently they’ve been overdoing the DS stuff.

The Citroen DS5 Crossover we have here is just what tipped the glass for me. I’m one of the many that can still remember what the original Citroen DS was and stood for.

Apart from being a car that was miles ahead of the pack, the Citroen DS looked completely eye pleasing in a world where everything was average.

The new Citroen DS5 seems to be a good looking car but not that good and nor is it that technologically advanced. Kind of feels like it’s not worthy of the “Goddess” name.

Usage of hybrid diesel technology underneath helps, but it’s not really enough to keep Citroen’s true petrolhead fans happy.
