Default Citroen to revive DS range

Citroen’s iconic DS nameplate has been out of production for over three decades, but the French automaker will re-launch the range later this year. Citroen will reveal its plan for the DS range later this week, with the first DS model surfacing next month.

Citroen’s first DS model will debut in concept form at March’s Geneva Motor Show. Dubbed the DS3, Citroen’s newest model will compete in the small car segment and is slated to hit the market in during the first half of 2010, according to Automotive News.

The second DS model – the lower-medium DS4 – will roll into Citroen showrooms dealers during early 2011, with the third and final model, the upper-medium DS5, bowing by the end of 2011.

The new DS range should complement Citroen’s C range, although the DS models will command a higher price point.

yes i agree, it looks too derivative of the Mini.

it's also the proportions and the curvatures.
