Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
The DS 5 comes quite well equipped, with Elegance very generously specced and Prestige lavishly so. Standard kit includes LED daytime running lights, keyless entry and start, dual-zone climate control and a 7.0in infotainment system with sat-nav. The jump up to Prestige isn’t cheap, but it adds a leather interior, 18in alloys and a reversing camera, while Performance Line sits in between them and mainly offers cosmetic tweaks, including the options of different colour packs.
DS reliability is still largely unknown, but Citroën has a poor record in the JD Power customer satisfaction survey. Every DS model comes with a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty.
