Exciting new Citroens are worth waiting for.  If you’re not already aware, Citroen are masters of the World Rally Championship.  Citroen also provides some of the more breath-taking hatchback designs, and the new Citroen DS5 Blue HDi is something very special.

Not only does the Citroen DS5 Blue HDi styling look incredible, the number of admiring looks is a feature of the drive.  Be prepared for the thumbs up and the staring passer-by, particularly with the DS5 being a relatively new arrival in Australia.  It’s sensational anyway, but when sitting on the optional 19-inch rims the car looks super classy.

Take a look inside the DS5 Hatchback, and the cabin design is very distinctive with almost an exotic flavour to the car’s striking dash and gorgeous seats.  The space inside the new Citroen DS5 Blue HDi cabin ensures that the best ride possible will be had by any new DS5 occupant.

The ride quality is premium, and the handling of the new DS5 Blue HDi is superb and fun.  If you really push the DS5 chassis hard, there is excellent body control and plenty of grip available for the driving enthusiast.  Blue HDi means that under the bonnet sits the newest turbo-diesel engine technology for the best-in-class power and efficiency; even driving the new Citroen DS5 Blue HDi hard, results in superior fuel economy.

It’s easy to go fast in the DS5; so just make sure you keep your head on, as there are plenty of police out on our roads.  Active cruise control helps you to keep your speed in check, particularly around the built up areas across Australia.  Active cruise control also checks the speed and distance of the vehicles in front of you.  And the system will brake when necessary to alter the speed accordingly.  Obviously if the car ahead starts to speed up, then the active cruise control will also speed the DS5 up – up to the dialled in cruising speed.

Comfort inside the DS5 Blue HDi is second to none, and the seats are awesome for the long journey.  This is a car that I’d love to be able to travel the long haul in – particularly if I had to do it regularly.  Luxury features inside the new Citroen DS5 Blue HDi includes: relaxed six-speed automatic cruising, directional Xenon lamps, scrolling LED indicators, LED daytime running lamps, LED front fog lights, a 7-inch touch screen with MirrorLink and DAB+ digital radio, black leather trim, a leather steering wheel with chrome inserts, an analog timepiece, electronic handbrake, cruise control with speed limiter and memory settings, Bluetooth, Illuminated vanity mirrors, electrically adjustable heated door mirrors, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, rain-sensitive wipers, auto illuminating headlamps, electrochrome rear view mirror, colour heads-up display, eMyWay satellite navigation, heated front seats, a driver’s seat with electric lumbar adjustment and massage function, keyless entry and push button start, a cockpit roof with toggle switches and a three-part glass roof with individual electric sun blinds and interior LED mood lighting.  So, you can see that the ride is fit for a king.

Optional extras are the very cool looking watchstrap leather trim (available in black, red, brown, blue/black and white/black), a very premium Denon hifi system and the sexy 19-inch ‘Cairns’ alloy wheels.

Power from the Blue HDi engine is in the form of the new BlueHDi turbo diesel engine with Stop and Start technology.  Peak output is 133 kW and maximum torque is 400 Nm from 2000 rpm.  The addition of a variable-geometry turbocharger and a higher supercharging pressure and combustion pressure has boosted the muscle of the new DS 5 BlueHDi compared with the preceding model.  Fuel efficiency doesn’t suffer greatly when performance is demanded.  Some sports cars will drink like a fish as soon as you squash the accelerator.  The Citroen DS5 HDi is remarkably capable at covering long distances at high speeds very efficiently.  At best you can expect below 5 litres/100 km and around 118 g/km of CO2 used.

Safety is another area that the DS5 Blue HDi aces.  All the premium safety equipment is on-board, and the shell structure is superbly strong for cocooning the occupants in the event of a serious accident.  Blind spot monitoring, six airbags, a seatbelt warning light, front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera with guide lines are some of the items on offer.

Citroen have provided the new buyer of the Citroen DS5 Blue HDi a six year/90,000 km warranty and servicing package.  Leave the mundane behind, and drive something as special as a new Citroen DS5.
