DS5 Makes Official Malaysian Debut; RM200k, 1.6 Turbo, 163hp

Citroen’s premium spin-off sub-brand DS has made its official entry into Malaysia with the official launching of the all-new DS5 D-segment flagship. The vehicle is devoid of any Citroen badging to establish the DS brand’s standalone identity.

A 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine equips the DS5 with 163hp and 240Nm, which it deploys to the front wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission. This setup gives the DS5 a claimed fuel consumption of 5.9 litres/100km and CO2 emissions of 135 g/km.

This sole 1.6 Turbo variant of the DS5 is priced at RM198,888 on-the-road with insurance.

In a segment typically populated by conservatively-styled sedans, the DS5 carries a more adventurous hatchback profile. A noteworthy design feature is the distinctive chromed blades that sweep backwards from the headlights along the edge of the front bonnet.

Key features available in the DS5 are as follows:

  • Auto xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights
  • Side mirror-mounted signal lights
  • Auto wipers
  • Touchscreen infotainment with phone mirror link
  • Denon Hi-Fi Audio: 6 speakers, subwoofer in boot
  • USB, iPod, Bluetooth connectivity
  • Dual zone air-conditioning
  • Heads-up display
  • Keyless entry, engine start button
  • Electric front seat adjustment with memory
  • Parking sensors: front and rear
  • Electronic parking brake
  • 18-inch alloy wheels
  • 6 airbags
  • ABS, EBD, Brake Assist
  • Electronic stability control

The DS5 is offered with a selection of five exterior colours – Artense Grey, Noir Perla Nera, Bleu Encre, Pearl White, and Whisper Purple. Customers can also choose between two different cabin colours – Basalt black and Sand Beige.

Aftersales of the DS5 is covered by a 5-year / 120,000km warranty with 24-hour roadside assistance. Owners also get exclusive access to the Naza Sky Lounge at Subang Airport.
