We've taken into account how well they work in combination with the car itself.

Among the SUV fundamentals, the protective panels on the lower body and wheel arches are enhanced with the graphic contours of the Airbump® inserts, which include a splash of colour to bring modernity and character to New C5 Aircross. The window line is highlighted by a C-shaped, chrome-finished signature for a very original side view. The four 3D LED oblong modules making up the rear lights on each side of the car are easily recognisable, striking and eye-catching, emphasising the width of the car. New Citroën C5 Aircross also makes a statement in terms of personalisation. The range of exterior colours adds to the status of the car: there is timeless Pearl White, Perla Nera Black, Platinium Grey and - above all - Volcano Orange, which is a bold new shade close to the original colour of the Aircross Concept. Two bright and fashionable metallic touches are available to bring more personality and elegance to the car: in red or silver. These subtle touches contrast with the exterior bodywork by underlining the roof bars, adding refinement and elegance to the floating roof. These colours can also feature on the lower air intakes of the front bumper and the Airbump® sections on the front doors. The scoops on the front and rear bumpers, and the rear spoiler, underline the car's aerodynamic lines, further enhancing the expressive, dynamic character of New C5 Aircross. Curved, flowing lines contrast with striking graphic touches throughout the interior. For example, the dashboard features double air vents to underline the strong, muscular character of this SUV. On the driver's side, there is a 12.3-inch digital display cluster. In the centre, the air vents and the 8-inch HD touchscreen form a perfectly integrated unit. The tall, wide centre console features soft materials and generous storage. There is also a wide central armrest with an array of practical storage compartments. To suggest space and comfort, New C5 Aircross adopts the sofa-inspired seating of the C4 Cactus, but approaches it in a new way, in keeping with the world of the SUV. The cabin is bathed in light, thanks to the generous panoramic sunroof and glass right around the car. The vehicle features Citroën colours and materials, tailored to the SUV segment. The materials are attractive, soft to the touch and generously padded where they come into contact with the driver and passengers. New C5 Aircross is available with a wide choice of materials, from 3D woven mesh to Nappa leather, personalising the interior ambience to suit the customer's wishes, from casual to executive. The seats of New C5 Aircross feature stylish top-stitching, an interior signature for Citroën vehicles. This pattern can also be seen on the door panels with original chrome-finish inserts Inspiration from the world of travel and luggage was first applied to C4 Cactus, and has since been adapted in a variety of forms from one segment to the next, particularly on the C6 launched in China last year (and only available in China). This idea is illustrated on New C5 Aircross by the chic, re-designed door handles and by the strap on the dashboard strip, facing the passenger. With slight compression and rebound, the springs and dampers control vertical movement together without applying the hydraulic stops. However, the presence of these stops increases the vehicle's freedom of movement, creating a 'magic carpet' effect, as if the car were flying over bumps and dips in the road. In the event of greater compression and rebound, the springs and dampers work together with the hydraulic compression or rebound stops, which gradually slow down the movement, thereby avoiding sudden jolts. Unlike a conventional mechanical stop, which absorbs and then partially restores energy, the hydraulic stops absorb and dissipate this energy. As a result, there is no rebound.

Découverte de la Peugeot 508 SW (2018)
Auto Tuning SUPER AVTO TUNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Taking inspiration from the massive success of France’s luxury brands, Citroën created the DS brand in 2009 to “express French style and luxury with beautiful details and exceptional quality".
The brand was intended to be more upmarket than mass-market, if not a direct competitor to Mercedes and BMW. The DS 5 tested here completes the initial incarnation of the DS line.
The crossover hatchback is also interesting because, while the link is unacknowledged by Citroën, this may be the closest thing to the original DS that France's famous double-chevron has produced in almost 40 years.
The first modern Citroën DS was, by contrast to that 1955 technological and stylistic trailblazer, more of an urban fashion hatchback than an expression of French luxury. Nevertheless, the Mini-like DS 3 quickly became a success following its launch in 2010, becoming Citroën UK’s best-selling model in the process. Next along was the slightly underwhelming DS 4 crossover, which then led to the more rugged DS 4 Crossback.
The dramatically styled DS 5 is an intriguing mix of high-roofed hatchback, coupé and sports estate, the result of the mounting pressure on the traditional D-segment family saloon in Europe.
It’s still an important sector, but selling cars in it is not as simple now as it once was. Roll back the clock a decade or so and if you wanted a full-size car of moderate price, there was little alternative.
However, the birth of MPVs, compact SUVs and crossovers, combined with the solid residuals of otherwise more expensive compact executive cars, means that things are no longer so simple.
There is now plenty of choice and, as Renault has already discovered to the Laguna’s cost, you’ve got to give customers a damned good reason to buy a relatively ordinary traditional family car.
That’s why the likes of the DS 5 now exist, crafting together several different styles of cars into a package you won’t find anywhere else.
As with its other DS models, Citroën’s intention in the big-family sector is to offer a sense of high design and desirability that traditional models cannot deliver.
Citroën itself says the DS 5 is pitched somewhere between the traditional Volkswagon Passat saloon and its natty CC derivative. Or between, say, the Vauxhall Insignia and Audi A4. Square where you might expect it, in other words.
To a man, everyone who came into contact with the DS 5 thought Citroën had hit the styling nail square on the head. The DS5 has a tasty portion of aggression and dynamism in its styling and balanced, taut surfaces, but avoids occupying unequivocally the realm of the quirky. If a road test was judged on a car maker’s efforts with a pen, we could all go home.
But there is still more to learn. While Citroën’s other DS models have arrived pretty much at the same time as their non-DS sister models, the DS 5 is a diversion from that pattern, and in more ways than one. While the DS 3 is effectively a C3 variant and the DS 4 is based on the C4, the DS 5 is not based on the C5, introduced in 2008, whose numeral it shares.
Instead, the DS 5 sits on the same PF2 platform as the Peugeot 3008 and Citroën C4/DS 4/Picasso, thus rendering it shorter overall than the C5. At 4530mm, the DS 5 is some 249mm shorter than the 4779mm C5.
The PF2 basis means that most DS 5s do without an independent multi-link rear suspension system, instead making do with a torsion beam, with MacPherson struts at the front.
There are three diesel powertrains offered, a 1.6-litre HDI with 118bhp and 148bhp and 178bhp variants of the 2.0-litre turbodiesel, the latter of which is offered with six-speed automatic transmission.
There is two variants of Citroën's venerable 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol developing 160bhp and 205bhp respectively. Curiously the former is only available with a six-speed automatic gearbox while the latter comes with a six-speed manual.
The range was once topped by the a hybrid model, which DS cut from the range at the end of 2016 after the French manufacturer announced only 3 percent of DS 5s sold were Hybrid4 models.
