What used DS DS 5 hatchback will I get for my budget?
Prices start at around £11,500 for a 2016 car with an average mileage for the year and a full service history, bought from an independent or franchised dealer. Up the dosh to between £12,000 and £15,000 and you’ll find plenty of good 2016 and 2017 cars that also satisfy that criteria. This a healthy amount off the 5's rather hefty price when new.
How much does it cost to run a DS DS 5 hatchback?
Unsurprisingly, the diesel-engined cars are the more economical, with the discontinued diesel-electric hybrid version claiming a fuel consumption figure of 85.6mpg in official tests. The 1.6 e-HDi Airdream version is the best performing of the rest, with a claimed average fuel consumption of 64.2mpg and CO2 emissions of 114g/km.
Annual road tax (VED) for cars registered before the tax changes in April 2017 will be low for most of the diesel-engined models, while all cars registered after that date will cost you the flat rate of £140 per annum.
Servicing costs are high, especially at main dealerships, but DS does have a number of servicing plans for older cars, with differing methods of payment.
