DS 5LS. 2013 to date (prod. n/a). 4-door sedan. F/F, 1560 cm³ (I4 DOHC). Citroën targets the Audi A3 (8V) saloon with a three-box version of its DS5, with LS an abbreviation for Luxury Sedan. Longer wheelbase than Audi, at 2,715 mm, though this is slightly shorter than regular DS5’s 2,727 mm. Single 1·6 turbo at launch. Styling meant to recall original Citroën DS in terms of the window line, but it’s not immediately apparent. No double chevron on grille, just DS badges, as Citroën began positioning DS as a brand on its own in China. Very well appointed interior. Built not by PSA’s usual partner Dongfeng, but by Chang’an, at a new Capsa (Chang’an–PSA) plant opened September 2013.


Manufacturing location: Shenzhen, China

Marque: DS | Model: DS 5
