Finally Citroen is unveiling its first ever SUV car in the Geneva Motor show in 2017. This will be the first SUV from the company and the car is named as DS 7. This new car from Citroen is spotted testing on the icy roads with a new shape and design which has got a complete SUV look. The testing process of Citroen DS 7 is in final stage and will be ready for Geneva motor show.
The French car maker has already tested DS 7 in china but there are few differences in the styling of the models which were tested in China and Europe. There are four existing cars under DS series and now a new DS 7 is all set to join its brotherhood. The mid-sized SUV successfully tested its performance on the snow breaks. The new DS 7 may get some designs from wild Rubis Citroen which is showcased in Shanghai Auto show.
The design of new Citroen DS 7 SUV will give a lead to future models from Citroen. However DS 7 may share some components of Peugeot 3008. Coming to the specifications of Citroen DS 7, it features PSA engine options. The DS 7 SUV comes in two variant engines: A 1.2 liter petrol engine produces 125bhp and a 1.6 liter gasoline engine which can produce 160bhp. Another feature of DS 7 SUV is that it has two more sub-variants in the diesel version.
The sub diesel versions come with 2.0 liter and 1.5 liter diesel engines which can produce 146bhp and 100bhp. This new model from Citroen will fight with Audi Q5 and Volvo XC60. The only drawback for Citroen is that it has few models and has presence only in European markets. Citroen failed to capture the Asian automobile market. Citroen in one of the interview stated that it would speed up the new models in coming future.
According Citroen’s top executive, if everything goes perfect another model from Citroen may come up in the year 2018. However the official design and look of the new DS 7 is not yet revealed and the company wants you to wait until Geneva Motor Show.
