The Citroen C-SportLounge was a design study that arrived at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show and at first glance, seemed to be nothing more than a waste-of-space show car. Whereas once motor show design studies actually led to a production model, in recent years they've become a cheap stunt to grab attention if nothing else is particularly new. People have tired of those tricks and many dismissed the C-SportLounge prototype as a dead end. Citroen Design Chief Jean-Pierre Ploue's study was all dramatic one-and-a-half box proportions, with a dipping waistline and an open-ended roof graphic. It was clearly never going to get anywhere near production.
Except it did. The DS5 was the result and while it's never been a big seller in the UK, it's a bold and interesting choice that might work even better as a used car. Here's what to look for.
The DS5 is an interesting left-field used pick, espcially if you've lately found yourself a bit discouraged at what you can buy in this sector. You might have had your heart set on something a bit stylish and a bit different but thought you'd run out of options. Well look again. The DS5 isn't going to be for everyone, but if you want a car that will make your neighbour's BMW 3 Series look about as imaginative and adventurous as a week in Torremolinos, you know what to do.
