Citroen has released
teaser images of the new DS 5SL saloon, aimed solely at the Chinese
market. The official announcement from Citroen states, ‘On December 19th
a new DS premium class sedan will be revealed: DS 5LS. Save the date!’
The images don’t give too much away but they do give us a sneak peak
at the alloy wheel design, angular headlights and rounded taillights
inspired by the DS Wild Rubis concept. It will be based on the DS5 but
have a more practical saloon body.
It will be produced in collaboration with Chinese manufacturer
Dongfeng, which will help build on the expansion of the Citroen brand.
Shipping cars to markets like China as well as Brazil and Russia is
becoming a vital part of manufacturers’ growth.
The DS 5SL will be officially unveiled on December 19 at a special
event to be held at The Louvre in Paris, ahead of likely sales in China
in the first quarter of 2014. For more details click here.
