Our Fleet Test Drive: Citroen DS5 Hybrid4 Dsport - 3rd Report

Date: 19 November 2012   |   Author: Tristan Young


There are certain things you take for granted with any new car, such as it having an FM/AM radio, which is why, when I pressed the 'Band' button in the DS5 Hybrid4 to switch from FM to AM and nothing happened, I assumed it was broken.

I explained the problem to my local Citroen dealer, Bollingmores, who booked the car in and found, to my surprise and theirs, that the DS5 Hybrid4 does not have AM because the electrics in the hybrid system would interfere with the reception.

I am now disappointed I can't listen to AM and that Citroen didn't fit a digital radio as standard to get round the problem.
