The interior layout, fit and finish
The quirky exterior styling is matched by a striking interior, which is by far the DS 5’s greatest asset. While its German rivals may outdo it for perceived quality, the DS has an interestingly flamboyant design that makes some competitors seem rather functional by comparison.
The seats are large and supportive, and there’s plenty of adjustment in both the driver’s seat and the steering wheel to help you find a comfortable driving position. Visibility is largely good but the spoiler cuts across the rear windscreen, which slightly obscures the view.
