Premium French brand DS will introduce a new mid-size sedan

February 20, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

February 24 this year will be the official presentation of the new sedan under the premium French brand DS. The novelty will compete with the German mid-size Audi A6 and BMW 5 Series.

French brand DS has published a new teaser for its future sedan, which will debut on February 24. The images show us a little, but judging by what is visible here, we have a premium DS8 or DS9 sedan.

The novelty has a wide pentagonal radiator grille and narrow LED headlights. There are also very thin, vertical daytime running lights on each side. At the back there are heavily “dented” lines of the body, as well as taillights with a diamond-shaped lamp pattern. Spy shots show that this premium brand is working on a rather large sedan with large doors and a smooth roof line.

Teasers and early photos from tests of test prototypes of the novelty do not give a look at the interior of the sedan.

It is assumed that the model will compete with cars such as the Audi A6 and BMW 5 Series, so it must offer luxurious interior materials to match legendary German quality. The most advanced driver assistance systems should also be available, such as self-driving assistance.

 The new DS8 or DS9 sedan reportedly uses the Peugeot-Citroën EMP2 platform as the basis, which is already the basis for the flagship Peugeot 508. It is reported that the available engine options will include a plug-in hybrid engine using a 1.6-liter gasoline engine with turbocharged as a base. A similar system is installed on the DS7 Crossback E-Tense crossover, where its total power is 296 horsepower (450 Nm).

Not so long ago, we wrote that they demonstrated the updated Citroen C3. The hatchback Citroen C3 of the third generation survived the planned restyling. The compact model, which is made in the style of the cross C4 Cactus, has acquired a modified front end.
