Citroen are releasing its DS line into China. The first offering was the standard DS5 but now they are adding the DS5 LS, a luxury saloon going on sale in March 2014.

This will be the second model to be made in the Shenzhen plant, it takes styling cues from the Numero 9 and Wild Rubis concept cars.
