Citroen Divine DS is the concept that officially divides the two brands. Citroen will continue as a more affordable manufacturer, while the DS will become an independent brand with premium aspirations, ready to tackle German products from BMW, Audi and Mercedes. All DS models will loose the Citroen logo and name starting next year.
The Divine DS is a compact hatchback with suicide doors, futuristic design and a 4.21 meters length. It is not taller than 1.35 meters even with its 20 inch alloy wheels and has a floating design.
The cabin is addressing premium clients, with distinctive materials, soft leather, contrast stitching and aluminium. The concept is also updated with the latest technology, including a 10.4 inch touchscreen display and a digital rearview mirror.
The Divine DS uses a 1.6 liter four cylinder turbo engine, delivering 270 hp and 330 Nm as in the Peugeot RCZ-R. Even with such resources, the Divine DS has emissions of 145 g/km.
