Officially Official: the facelifted Citroen DS5 for China
Published on February 26, 2015 by Tycho de Feijter
Citroen has released the first official images of the facelifted DS5 hatchback, scheduled to debut on the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show in April with a launch on the Chinese car market in H2. The facelift brings the DS5 hatchback in line with the other DS-branded models, including the trademark DS-grille.
This is the current Citroen DS5, still featuring the Citroen chevron logo. The DS-line is manufactured in China by the Changan-PSA joint venture and operates as a separate brand, with its own dealer network, marketing, and product planning.
The DS5 was launched in September 2013. Price starts at 219.900 and ends at 305.900 yuan. Engines: a 163hp 1.6 turbo and a screaming 200hp 1.6 turbo, both mated to a six-speed automatic. Both engines will continue in the facelifted DS5 and price will be about the same.
New alloys and some minor changes at the lower part of the bumper. Exhaust pipes seem to be shinier than before.
Not a Citroen anymore.
