Citroen DS 6WR
Citroen have today revealed an SUV model that will take its place on the DS range of models. The DS range of models have been the most successful range of models under the Citroen name over the last number of years as the likes of the DS 3 and the DS5 pick up numerous awards.
The images released by the French manufacturer seem to show that the Citroen model has been inspired by the Wild Rubis concept that was seen last year. The new DS SUV model will be revealed to the general public at the Beijing Motor Show later this week.
The DS brand at Citroen is centred around being the premium and sophisticated range of models and the new SUV model is said to epitomise that. The new 6WR SUV model will be powered by the 1.6 litre four cylinder engine that is capable of an output of over 200bhp.
The DS range has achieved a limited amount of success in the growing car market of China and new boss plans to build on the success by expanding the range. The new DS 6WR model will be joined by a new Saloon model that will also take on the DS badge.
The SUV market in China is one of the growing and soon to be dominating markets. The Volkswagen owned Audi brand have been amongst the best selling manufacturers with models from the Q range and sales have continued to increase so far this year.
Citroen C4 Cactus
The Citroen brand are soon to release the C4 Cactus model in the UK at an expected £13,000. The model is set to make major waves in the market and jump up into the top ten best selling models in the UK.
The current market leaders in the form of the Nissan Qashqai and the Nissan Juke sit just outside the top five. The Citroen C4 Cactus crossover model is set to take a considerable amount of sales from the market leading models.
