Citroën to launch new DS5 in Shanghai, on Facebook

With the DS3 hatchback already on the market and the DS4 crossover soon to reach dealers, Citroën has confirmed plans to launch the next model in its premium lineup next week at the Shanghai Motor Show.

We don't know much about the DS5 at this point, except to assume that it's likely based on the C5. Bearing in mind that the three-door DS3 is based on the five-door C3, and that the DS4 crossover is based on the C4 hatchback, there's no telling what body-style the DS5 will carry on the back of the C5 sedan. Given the latest industry trends, we're probably looking at a four-door coupe or five-door slant-back.

The car will be launched simultaneously with the Shanghai show floor debut on the French automaker's Facebook page.

Citroën will reveal the third model in its distinctive DS line: DS5 on 18 April at the Shanghai International Motor Show.

The DS line has celebrated unprecedented sales success and critical acclaim in the 12 months since DS3 was launched. Citroën's soon-to-be-launched high-stance five-door coupé, DS4, has already been voted 'most beautiful car of the year' and now DS5 is set to bring distinctive new elegance and panache to the executive class.

The presentation of this outstanding vehicle will be broadcast live from Hall 6 of the Shanghai show on 18 April at 9.30 a.m. GMT, viewable on Citroën UK's Official Facebook page (
