Big stupid Shîtroen that can't decide whether 'tis a 5-door hatch or a commercial vehicle.

Slap a leather interior in it and Brits will delude themselves into thinking it is somehow "cool" or "chic".

It isn't.



Even the fake tailpipe finishers are a stupid shape.

Love that interior. Not so much the facelift exterior.

Yes, I preferred it pre-facelift. I do like its bum though. What I really like is the clever drive-train. It almost makes it cool for me.

I must admit to looking at Autotrader to see if they are really out there in the real world.

If it drives like the C4 auto we have as a pool car it needs setting on fire and pushing off a cliff.

Uncool.

Is there any reason to compare the C4 and DS5 (Hybrid, which is what I asked for) other than it's a Citroen? They seem to be quite different.

to be fair, I slightly polluted the request with

a) a facelift
b) by not clarifying the hybrid ness

but yes

When will the French realise that sometimes less is more? Looks like they've made 12 designs and merged them into one big mess and thought it was a good idea to just make it, uncool

The DS5 is positively restrained when compared to the horrors coming out of Japan and Korea these days.

Won't argue with you on that! They're making cars as cars not cars for people if that makes sense? Real shame too as Japans 80-90's and arguable early 00's style was just beautiful
