DS - Premium designer cars

C4 Cactus would be the first of a new range.
No, C = Cactus. Cactus is the C-series.

Citroen C = basic, cheaper cars (Cactus)
Peugeot = goes upmarket, near premium
DS = will be stand-alone, no Citroen in it's name, Premium

Equivalents at VW Group
Citroen C = Skoda
Peugeot = VW
DS = Audi

It is a long road to make DS to compete against Audi but actually DS already has more upmarket interior than Audi... so you never know...

It's posted on Jalopnik now. It may get the ICE/compressed gas 'HybridAir' system, which works in a similar way to an ICE/barrery hybrid, but with the gas replacing batteries.

tech data:

length: 4160 mm
width: 1730 mm
height: 1480 mm
betw. axes: 2600 mm
boot: 358 litara
weight: 965kg

engines (for now):

1.0l 3-cyl. VTi 81hp
1.2l (? I guess that new one) e-THP 108hp
1.6l eHDI 99hp
1.6l BlueHDI 99hp (average consump. 3,1 l/100 km & CO2 82g/km).

I guess it's ok for a car that weighs less than a tonne, but I hope they'll give it 1.2l THP130 too (they won't for now, cause Pug's have to have it first ;) ) and they are talking about hybrid.... don't know which... Hybrid4 or HybridAir...


and a picture of back seats.... :



nice legroom...

That rear wiper is quite useful compared to the Citroen DS5

Reading around the internet about this, I'm liking it more and more. The passenger airbag is up with the sunvisor, making the passenger side of the dashboard top a big glovebox/storage area. The flip out rear windows means its lighter because theres no window mechanisms or motors, and there's a big door pocket. Going cheap on stuff like the windows means they can spend elsewhere on bits like the LCD dashboard screens and stitched leather trim. It has small engines, so the most powerful car's top speed is 120mph. So the mechanicals are lighter, it's based on a stretched DS3 instead of a heavier C4, and it weighs around a tonne.
