The new 2015 Citroen DS 6WR luxury SUV will be making its debut at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show. It is the second model in Citroen’s standalone luxury brand.
2015 Citroen DS 6WR Design
This luxury SUV model is based on the Citroen DS Wild Rubis Concept, that was unveiled at the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show. The concept has served as an inspiration to designers to make the new 2015 Citroen DS 6WR.
The front grille will be different than those of other Citroen models, with big DS emblem in the center. The grille is surrounded by chrome frame which flows into the premium jewel headlights, forming a shape of a wing. The car looks both elegant and sporty. It rides on big 19-inch five-spoke wheels. The taillights on the back look amazing (photo below).
When it comes to the interior, the upcoming vehicle will have enough space for five passengers. It will be very comfortable and equipped with premium leather and metal materials. There are no photos of the cabin, so I can not say for sure what tech will be included, but we could expect modern accessories.
Engine and Performance
According to some reports, the DS 6WR will be powered by a turbo 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine that will generate 200 horsepower and 202 lb-ft of torque. There will possibly be a choice of a 1.8-liter powertrain that will be able to develop 139 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque. The exact performance will be known in the upcoming days.
Anyway, engine will transfer its power via a six-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels. The car will also be equipped with Grip Control system.
Release Date and Price
It looks like the new 2015 Citroen DS 6WR SUV will be available only in China. I do not know if it will be available in other markets in the near future. Anyway, the production will start after its world premiere at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show, which starts on April 20. It will be available in Chinese retail stores by the end of this year. It is expected that the price will be between 26 and 32 thousand dollars.
Three photos of the 2015 DS 6WR SUV, one of them being a teaser image, can bee seen below.
