New Citroen DS5 to Debut at Top Gear Live

The new Citroen DS5 will make its UK debut at Top Gear Live in November 2011.

The new Citroen DS5 will make its UK debut at Top Gear Live in November 2011. This executive mile-muncher will be the manufacturer's flagship model from 2012. But why? Its styling is out-of-this-world, for starters, and the cabin is special too. What other car has a premium feel and pilot-style overhead switches? It will also be the first production-ready Citroen to feature full-hybrid diesel technology. As such, this eco-champion's emissions will be as low as 99g/km – so this variant will be cheap to run and environmentally friendly. The sharp handling, pleasing ride, and spacious boot will complete the package.

Top Gear Live brings the flare of the television show to intimate arenas. It stars Jeremy Clarkson, James May, Richard Hammond, and The Stig who enjoy various on-stage shenanigans via their indoor race track. The legendary show has toured the world since 2008 entertaining over one-million hard-core motoring fans. As tickets start from £49 per- person, that sounds 'profitable'. There are two UK tour dates this year: Birmingham’s NEC from 11-13 November and ExCel London from 24-27 November. The Citroen DS5 will make its presence felt at both venues. Might be worth £49 just to see this striking new car.

Good try. Why can Citroen not produce a retro style DS, improved from the 1973 model with hydraulic suspension and ride to match. Citroen could take 50.000 advance orders, I am sure.

Already seen it and driven it. Very nice car.
