Spy photos reveal a bulky DS5 similar to the Citroen C-SportLounge Concept the French automaker debuted back in 2005.

Here are the newest spy shots of the upcoming 2011 Citroën DS5 spied while doing some cold-weather testing close to the arctic circle.

The car is heavily camouflaged, looking like it can feel the cold itself, and we can barely make out its shape. And it's looking oddly bulky, remarkably similar to the the Citroën C-SportLounge Concept from 2005. [Photos of that concept are included in the album published here.]

The DS5 is based on the Citroën C5 but judging by the spy pics here, it may come in a different, huskier body style. The DS5 will come to feature the PSA Group's HYbrid4 technology - a hybrid all-wheel drive system that couples an electric motor on the rear axle with a diesel engine powering the front wheels.

The Citroen DS5 is due for an unveiling at the Frankfurt motor show in September.
