DS now sells five models in China. These are crossovers DS 6 and DS 7, hatchbacks DS 4S, DS 5, as well as a DS 5LS sedan. Sales of the brand last year amounted to 3867 cars, which is 1980 less than last year. The most popular off-road vehicles: DS 7 sold in the amount of 2244 copies, and DS 6 – 591.
DS 7 in the local market is offered with a 1.6 engine and an eight-band automatic. Two power options are available for the turbo-four: 181 hp (250 Nm of torque) and 220 hp (300 Nm of torque).
