DS is unveiling a sophisticated new SUV at this year’s Beijing Motor Show – DS 6WR – the first SUV for the brand.

Citroen_DS_6WR_1 Designed in Paris and directly inspired by the Wild Rubis concept car, DS 6WR is a premium SUV, following on from DS 5LS, and represents the next stage in the development of DS in China and around the world.

Citroen_DS_6WR_2The unique body lines combine SUV styling with DS design cues. At 4.55 m long, 1.86 m wide and 1.61 m tall, with a long wheelbase of 2.73 m and 19-inch wheels, DS 6WR’s generous dimensions meet the needs of premium SUV buyers in terms of space, versatility and dynamics.

Citroen_DS_6WR_3DS 6WR is specified with Grip Control – for optimised traction on all types of terrain – without the need for a four-wheel drive system. This benefits both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The e-THP 160 and THP 200 powerplants are mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox and feature sequential direct injection with a high-pressure pump and a twin scroll type turbocharger.

Citroen_DS_6WR_4Following DS5 in September 2013 and DS 5LS, which was launched at the end of March this year, DS 6WR will be the third DS model to be built in China at the Shenzhen site. DS 6WR will be introduced by end of the year in China in the first instance.
