Citroen's new DS5 tall-sedan-short SUV thing will roll into the Shanghai Motor Show tomorrow, sporting a diesel-hybrid system and extra carrying space for baguettes or protest signs for labor strikes.
The Shanghai Auto Show seems like a distant dream now. We laughed. we cried. We swear we got lead poisoning. Below we've compiled the very best of our exclusive international Shanghai coverage. Enjoy the Sinogasm.
