Citroen's upmarket DS line-up has added a third new model for Australia this week, with the local launch of the sleek DS5 wagon.

Priced at $47,990, the DS5 is available in just one petrol-powered specification and one high-grade trim - for now, at least.

Sharing its platform with Peugeot's high-riding 3008, the DS5 measures 4.52m long and 1.85m wide, placing it directly between Citroen's new C4 and the ageing C5 large sedan.

Internationally, the DS5 can be had with a range of petrol and diesel engines, along with Peugeot Citroen's Hybrid4 diesel-electric system.

In Australia, engine options are limited to the familiar 1.6 litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder engine, producing 115kW and 240Nm of torque.

Power is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission (the only option), and fuel consumption is listed at 7.3 l/100km.

Inside, the sleek wagon reveals the same style-focused design as its DS stablemates. Citroen says it took inspiration from the cockpit of an airplane in creating the flat-bottomed steering wheel and dash features, including the overhead controls.

Seating five, the DS5 offers 465 litres of rear storage space.

Features include keyless entry and start, satellite navigation and reversing camera, automatic headlights and wipers, dual-zone climate control, heated and massaging power-adjustable driver's seat, a heads-up display and a three-piece glass panoramic roof.

ANCAP crash safety testing has not been carried out, but the DS5 carries a five-star Euro NCAP rating in European markets.
