Citroën has announced the availability of a number of new options on selected DS5 models from 2 July, 2012.
New Citroën DS5 is the brand’s first production model to feature Hybrid4 full diesel hybrid technology. From July, stylish 17-inch ‘Houston’ alloy wheels are available as a no-cost option on Hybrid4 DStyle and DSport versions. These smaller diameter alloy wheels reduce the cars’ CO2 emissions from 107g/km to 99g/km – the same as the entry-level DSign Hybrid4 model. At 99g/km both models are exempt from the London congestion charge and the BiK tax rate reduces from 12 to just 10%.
Citroën has also confirmed two new Signature packs for DS5 HDi 160 DStyle & DSport models. The Sport Signature and Dark Sport Signature packs are priced at £650 and bring lowered suspension (by 7mm), black door mirrors and grey or black 19-inch ‘Cairns’ alloy wheels for the Sport Signature and Dark Sport Signature respectively.
On all DS5 THP 200 versions, the striking Dark Sport Signature is now specified as standard – at no extra cost – with the Sport Signature pack available as an alternative no-cost option.
Completing the July changes, New DS5’s e-HDi 110 Airdream EGS6 powertrain has been renamed e-HDi 115 Airdream EGS6 to reflect a slight increase in power from 111hp to 114hp. The drivetrain’s performance figures, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are unaffected.
