The Auto Trader verdict:

3.1/5
For buyers with a sense of style and individuality, and a desperate desire to be different, the DS 5 will undoubtedly strike a chord. However, its looks, low running costs and generous equipment aren’t enough to detract from the shortcomings elsewhere – the ride, in particular – which lead us to recommend you head to one of its rivals.

Definately not Boring

DS 5

Derek | 30th June '17

There is nothing in life that we all agree on, and finding the best car is up there with the most contentious of issues.I had read all the unflattering reviews of the DS5 but was brave enough to make up my own mind.Whilst i understand that this car is not perfect,what is! .If you prefer LP's to CD's,if you prefer paintings to computer printed graphics,if you prefer Victorian houses to new builds,then the DS5 might be for you.BMW/Audi/Mercedes make good cars but perfection can also be just plain boring and totally lacking in character. The DS5 needs to be driven and this includes it 'faults' because they are what makes the journey a pleasure.The car has lots of character,is far more comfortable(after a little patience of adjustment) than is written by some and its performance and fuel economy are plenty good enough for the real world (not just printed 0-60 ect).Yes this car may not be faultless but it certainly is not uninteresting and lets me enjoy my driving again.

Style & substance makes the DS5 a compelling choice for free thinkers

DS 5

Adeinbucks | 21st August '16

This is my second DS, previously owning a DS4 which was faultless and great to own and drive. I had always been smitten with the design and style of the 5 and I have not been disappointed. I keep finding excuses to drive! The auto is good, the sport mode being particularly good. Just over 50 mpg without trying,the ride is sound (better than many Audi's I've had). I've been shocked about how often I've been asked about the car. You really feel you are driving something rather special. The led and xenon lights are brilliant, following the road in corners and making country roads a joy to drive at night. I no longer mind being stuck in traffic jams as the interior is so stunning and a very relaxing place to be. If you want to make a style statement and dare to be different the DS5 will not disappoint.
