Citroën DS5 Hybrid

Occasionally Agent 007 finds himself in France, often at the swankiest of restaurants in Paris, or perhaps on the Riviera.

There, he could opt for a French car--not to blend in, but to combine his green travels with a touch of distinctively French styling.

From the distinctive chrome blades along the hood to the dropped roofline at the rear, the Citroën DS5 Hybrid is all about combining unexpected elements.

It could be a wagon, or a large five-door hatchback--its chic, French style and luxurious interior offer elements of both.

Inside, the seats and surfaces are wrapped in the softest leather, with burnished metal to highlight the details.

Gauges are patterned after those in fighter jets--Bond knows how to fly them, so this should be familiar--complete with a heads-up display.

Under the striking sheetmetal that gives the DS5 Hybrid all that presence, the French cruiser offers a surprise: two different powertrains.

It's one of only three diesel hybrids sold in the world, in fact. Up front, there's a 2.0-liter turobdiesel engine, for fuel-efficient motoring that offers loads of torque.

Out back, the other is an electric motor that runs so silently that James Bond could sneak behind that suspicious waterfront warehouse entirely undetected.

Driving green can even help the plotting, eh?
