This week we were treated to a brief drive in the new DS 5 which is now available to order in Ireland. As most know, DS is now a stand alone brand offering premium motoring at an affordable price. The DS 5 is defined by its avant-garde styling and it combines a the latest technologies with sublime interiors to leave you under no illusion that quality is at the forefront each and every DS. With a new stand-alone identity, thanks to the impressive new front end & numerous other revisions it wears the DS badge with purpose. Our test drive was enjoyable and the new trim levels and the latest Euro 6 engines work in harmony to make you feel special behind the wheel.

Buyers will be able to choose from two trim levels, Elegance & Prestige along with three BlueHDi Diesels and a Hybrid 4×4 drivetrain. If you like your cars a little more special or unique you can also opt for the DS 5 1955 Limited Edition. To mark 60 years since the original DS launch at the Paris motor show you can buy a Ink Blue body coloured DS 5, with unique 1955 badging. This model is based on the Elegance trim level and offers additional equipment as standard, including ‘Criollo’ semi-aniline ‘watch strap’ leather seats and DS LED Vision headlights. We loved this interior at yesterdays first drive. This 1955 Limited Edition with the latest BlueHDi 180 S&S EAT6 Auto powertrain, produces just 116g/km of CO2 emissions and is priced at €44,345. I think its fair to say these are exciting times for the DS brand.
