A beautiful cabin, chic looks – what’s not to like about the DS5? Well, this is a 5-door hatchback that represents a break from the norm. It definitely has a feel good factor.
The problem with the DS5 is that it simply lacks driving experience. The drive is akin to a people-carrier – boat-like and unispiring.
The ride is also too harsh for what is being billed as an executive car and the steering offers nothing, no precision or accuracy, especially on a winding road when you want to push on.
You have to praise Citroen for creating the DS in the first place. It’s a brave move in a world of generic cars that blend into the crowd.
If only the driving experience was better we’d all be going DS.
