Citroën’s new DS5 has been named ‘Best Large Car’ in Diesel Car magazine’s Car of the Year Awards 2012, adding to the model’s awards successes following honours from Top Gear Magazine and Car Design News.
Ian Robertson, Editor of Diesel Car Magazine, said: “Distinctively a Citroën, the DS5 breaks the mould to shatter large car predictability, while being clever and smart.”
Collectively the Diesel Car judges were impressed, commenting: “At a stroke, the biggest DS model makes all its rivals seem just a touch dull by comparison.”
Marc Raven, Citroën UK’s communications director, responded: “Our new Citroën flagship’s distinctive styling, sophisticated design and creative technology have received positive praise from both public and press. This latest accolade is further evidence that Citroën is getting it right with the DS line. With more than 25,000 DS models already sold in the UK, New DS5 is set to win yet more hearts and minds in the months ahead.”
