Citroen has released the first images of its first-ever DS sedan.
Anticipated to be sold exclusively in China, the Citroen DS sedan, teased in two images revealing the car’s headlights and taillights, will adopt many styling cues used throughout Citroen’s DS range.
The front appears to have been heavily influenced by the DS Wild Rubis concept, with a grille that tapers into a set of sweptback headlights, while LED lights are also visible.
Clearly showing a sedan-style boot, the rear end image also shows the French manufacturer’s trademark 3D-effect tail-lights sitting within a chrome surround.
While the basic shape of the car’s taillights reflects those of the Citroen DS5, the car is in fact expected to be a DS4 sedan, sharing its underpinnings with the C4L – a sedan version of the C4 hatch sold in China, Russia and other emerging markets.
The DS4 sedan will likely follow in the footsteps of the DS4 crossover, offering a 1.6-litre engine in two states of tune: 120kW and 240Nm and 147kW and 275Nm.
In September, Citroen announced it will build a DS SUV for China – based on the Wild Rubis concept, and expected to be called either the DS7 or DSX7 – spurred on by the market's fondness for large SUVs as well as the success of the DS line in China. Further, there have also been rumours Citroen will sell a China-only DS9 limousine.
The new DS sedan will be revealed in full later this month, before going on sale from next March.
