The Citroën DS nameplate has an illustrious history and the French brand is hoping to capitalise on this with a modern range of DS-branded cars.
The latest in this premium-end assault is the DS 5LS sedan, which is the first modern four-door to wear the iconic badge.
Yet at this stage it remains unclear whether the DS 5LS has any globe-trotting ambitions as Citroën is touting it as a vehicle for the Chinese market and it's also set to be built there, at the firm's Shenzhen plant.
At 4.7 metres, the 5LS is slightly longer than a BMW 3 Series and matches it in width, while power comes from Peugeot's 1.6-litre direct injection turbopetrol engine, offering two power levels: 120kW and 147kW. Both are mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox.
While nowhere near as quirky as the DS of yore, the 5LS does move the modern DS line-up into new territory with its front end inspired by the recent Numero 9 and Wild Rubis concept cars. The talking point here is its sculpted grille that runs into boomerang-shaped lights and Citroën says these 'DS Wings' are a nod to the original DS of 1955.
