Citroen DS5 previewed by new render |

Citroen is betting big on reviving its iconic DS badge for new premium models, starting with the upcoming DS3. But after the compact hatchback appears, which will give competitors like Mini or the Audi A1 something to think about, the next model scheduled to appear is the DS5, based on the C5 flagship sedan.

Besides hearing that it will sport a diesel hybrid setup, not much was revealed about the model, which will hit sometime in 2011. Now, thanks to French magazine L’Auto Journal, we have one of the first possible pics of the DS5, which is featured as a cover story.

The model will sport the new grille style, as previewed by the Revolte concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show, and does seem quite attractive, offering a decent hatchback take on the current C5 design. If it will improve on the quality of the interior, for which the French sedan has been applauded, Citroen might have a great contender for rivals like the BMW 5 Series GT.
