Brand new spy shots of the Citroen DS5

It seems that even the French cars can go to the Arctic Circle. Or at least that is the case for the new Citroen DS5 that has been seen around doing some cold-weather test.
Now at a first sight you couldn't recognize the car, but yes, under that heavy camouflage you can find the new DS5. As far as we can see, even if the DS5 is derived from the C5 model, the new car seems to feature bulkier shapes bearing a shocking resemblance to the Citroen C-Sport Lounge Concept that the French car manufacturer presented in 2005. Still we can’t really know how much of the C-Sport’s design ideas will be continued on this new car but anyway this seem to be a very promising model.
What's also very interesting about the DS5 is that Citroen intends to mount on it the PSA Group's new HYbrid 4 technology that comprises from a hybrid-all-wheel drive system that puts together a rear axle electric motor and a front axle diesel engine.
The new Citroen DS5 will be unveiled at this year’s Frankfurt motor show that will start in September. Until then we can only admire these spy photos and wait for the grand premiere.
