Car hire company Avis has announced customers have the unique opportunity of renting the brand-new DS 5 at selected locations. In the UK, the stylish model is available in London, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
In London, hirers can choose from multiple locations and these are Victoria, Waterloo, Euston, Shepherd’s Bush and the Marriott Hotel at Marble Arch. Avis says hirers will be driving an automobile that is an exciting fusion of avant-garde design and state-of-the-art technology.
The DS 5 is a flagship of parent company Citroen and features the best that Parisian designers have been able to come up with. A sleek exterior hides a plush leather interior and all the technology needed to make driving a real pleasure.
Convenient gadgetry includes no-key entry and ignition, a cockpit driving position, automated headlight control and fully adjustable air-conditioning. To make driving easier the design team have built in intelligent traction and slope-start mechanisms and high-vision headlights.
The first Citroen produced DS made its debut on the streets of Paris six decades ago and was the first production-line vehicle to be equipped with disc-brakes. Although DS is a sub-brand of the Citroen marquee, it now has its own logo and most of the models in the collection are styled differently to similar sized ones in the parent company’s range.
The arrival of the new DS 5 has been eagerly awaited by motor industry professionals. Avis is at the forefront of the innovation by hire companies to offer their customers cars that are a statement instead of a means of getting from A to B.
