Citroën’s stylish and distinctive DS line – comprising of DS3, DS4 and DS5 – has won the Road Test Editor’s Award in the 2012 Fleet World Honours. This latest addition to the growing list of DS accolades was presented earlier today at the Fleet World Honours awards ceremony in London.

Fleet World’s Motoring Editor, Alex Grant, said: “Taking Gallic flair to new heights, the DS line distills everything we love about Citroën’s unique style and sophistication into some fantastic cars. DS3, DS4 and now DS5 prove that you don’t always have to do things in a Germanic way to give drivers premium quality.”

Andy Wady, Citroën UK Fleet Director, remarked: “The success of the DS line in the 2012Fleet World Honours is further independent recognition of Citroën’s original thinking in producing stylish and innovative fleet cars. An ever growing number of fleet drivers appreciate the DS line’s design flair, driving dynamics, comfort and the very latest Citroën diesel hybrid technology. DS5 Hybrid4 models deliver a unique combination of 200hp performance, zero emissions city driving, 4WD capability and exceptionally lowCO2emissions from just 99g/km.”
