Parkers
Review Summary
While it doesn’t waft along with the same pillowy-soft grace of its historic namesake, the DS 5’s much more comfortable and relaxing to drive over longer distances than before. It’s definitely a car that responds better to gentler inputs from the driver, reinforcing its comfort-biased nature.

There are few rival cars that provide as impressive and luxurious an interior environment at this price.

Review Summary
No other car at its price – and few others at any price – offers the same level of styling dynamism inside and out, partnered with impressive perceived interior quality.

Review Summary
The DS 5 offers an alternative executive car experience, but for most it won't beat German rivals.

Review Summary
It may look good and have a plush interior, but the DS 5 doesn’t ride or handle as well as some rivals, while running costs disappoint, too.

Car Keys
Review Summary
This is a handsome machine, looking rather like a vastly extended DS3 and none the worse for it. The inside is nearly as adventurously designed as the out, with references to aircraft practice such as the roof-mounted switches .

Review Summary
Such a stiff set-up invariably keeps the body upright on twisty roads, but the DS5 doesn’t feel at all sporty because its steering is so vague and lifeless.

Review Summary
What a new difference a set of dampers makes, giving the DS5 the ride comfort it always should have had.

Review Summary
An extraordinary piece of design marred by sub-par mechanicals.
