The new DS crossover will be presented next weekSeptember 4, 2018
The head of the French company Yves Bonnefont announced in his Twitter the date of the premiere of the “new creation”. To the post was attached a photograph, which, in fact, nothing shows us, and the name of the car is not specified. But since this year the French promised only one novelty, it’s not difficult to guess that DS 3 Crossback will be presented in a week.
Thus, Monsieur Bonnefont through the social network announced that the premiere of the new compact crossover will be held on September 13. As the novelty will look, we already know thanks to the merged patent images, which appeared in July. Exterior DS 3 Crossback is made in the style of his “big brother” DS 7 Crossback, which officially debuted last year.
The interior will be distinguished first of all by a multimedia system with a “soaring” touch screen. The diamond-shaped front panel, with concealed air deflectors, will be used for the first time in the “troika”. It looks pretty interesting, however, you should wait for the “live” photos.
As for the technical component, there is no exact information yet, but it is assumed that the new platform of SMA from PSA will form the basis of the SUV. In the line of power units will most likely include a gasoline three-cylinder turbo engine in volume of 1.2 liters and a diesel engine with a half-liter BlueHDi. It is known that the company will introduce (and probably first of all) an electrical modification, whose power reserve will be about 450 km.
Note that the company has already withdrawn from production of hatchbacks DS 4 and DS 5, now their remains are realized. And with the new compact crossover from the model line, there will also be a five-door DS3. However, the company promises to replenish it by six more new models by 2023.
