Citroen have today previewed images of its DS High Rider Concept ahead of next month’s official unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show.
As the second concept from Citroen to wear the DS badge, the High Rider is a four-seat coupe that combines shooting brake and three-door hatch designs in to the one vehicle.
An elevated clearance and wide, compact stance help the DS High Rider achieve a muscular stance, as do its bespoke design 19-inch alloy wheels which are unique to the showcar.
Finished in gold paint, the DS High Rider Concept features a roof that is coated with a textile material that Citroen says demonstrates “a tactile feature of quality”.
The DS High Rider aims to offer occupants a light and airy interior thanks to a large, vertically extended windscreen that “soars over the heads of front occupants”, though with no images supplied, we’ll have to wait until Geneva to get a glimpse.
Under the bonnet, the DS High Rider is powered by Citroen’s full-hybrid diesel drivetrain that features a HDi diesel engine to power the front wheels (no capacity given, though we expect 1.6-litres) and an electric motor that drives the rear wheels.
