It’s easy to find a comfortable driving position, thanks to a good range of seat and steering wheel adjustment. Things aren't so positive when to start to interact with your surroundings, however; there are far too many small, fiddly buttons scattered around the place, and the infotainment system is pretty slow.
Citroën DS5 Hatchback space & practicality
Mid-spec versions and above get glass roof panels that help the front feel spacious, but they eat into headroom for those sitting in the rear seats. Rear kneeroom is surprisingly tight, too. The boot is adequate for a car of this size, and the split rear seats help with accommodating larger loads. It’s worth noting that the Hybrid4 has a smaller boot than other DS5s, however.
Citroën DS5 Hatchback equipment
Even the entry-level DSign model is well equipped, getting dual-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers, cruise control, Bluetooth and a USB socket as standard. We think it's worth spending the extra on DStyle trim, though, which adds sat-nav, part-leather upholstery, rear parking sensors and a digital radio. Range-topping DSport versions get full-leather trim, electrically adjustable seats, swivelling xenon headlights and front parking sensors, but they're expensive.
