Concern PSA has an ambitious plan for its luxury brand DS, so it may soon expand the range of offered models.

The French automaker wants to bring back the glorious days of the Citroen DS with its unconventional styling and remarkable performance. Of course, the market is completely different these days, and buyers are still hungry for more and more high-performance models. But DS will respond to those needs with an all-new crossover that could debut in the first half of 2023.

Obviously, this will happen in two years, but Motor.es reporters say they have information on what to expect. Based on the available data, the designers of the edition have collected a render announcing a new premium crossover from France.

Although “not all brands of the PSA group have to be present in all segments,” a DS spokesman recently told the media, the brand is ready to launch another crossover, which should be slightly smaller than the Peugeot 2008. However, both should have a completely different approach to design in order to avoid competition within the group.

According to the publication, DS wants to create a more traditional crossover than the fancy DS3 Crossback in order to appeal to a wider audience. The new and as-yet-unnamed model is being seen as a potential rival to the Mini’s 5-door hatchback, which in turn means we’re not dealing with a traditional crossover, but rather a slightly raised hatchback.

The project is still under review and awaiting management approval. If it gets approved, it won’t be long in production, as it will be based on the same platform as the DS3 Crossback and will likely use the same technologies.
