Citroen 'plotting new DS8 range-topper for 2018' A new DS8: what we know. Citroen’s DS division has been doing remarkably well: the DS3 now comfortably outsells its Citroen counterpart, the plain-Jane C3, and the French have spun off DS into a standalone unit. Try spotting a Citroen chevron on the latest 2015 DS5, for instance. However, ANE reports that sales are slowing down as the product line-up ages: they’ve fallen a fifth to 42,100 in the first five months of 2015, it claims. Hence the need for new products to rekindle interest.

Citroen hasn’t found as many buyers for the DS 5 (or the Citroen DS5 as it was known in a former life) as it would have hoped, with customers criticising both the firm ride and the high running costs of the diesels. But an update in 2015 made improvements to the suspension setup, still leaving it feeling firm but without crossing the line into discomfort. Whether losing those famous Citroen chevrons has made it more desirable is a moot point, as the DS 5 remains a left-field choice. But it’s better than ever, and those looking for a quirky alternative to more mundane rivals shouldn’t discount it without trying one first. The DS 5 was the first standalone model from Citroen’s luxury DS arm, since what was originally a sub-brand separated itself from the rest of the Citroen range and became a standalone brand instead. In case you’re wondering about the difference between the two, the change basically meant taking the Citroen badges off the existing DS model line-up in the hope they’d subsequently attract a better class of customer. It happened over a mid-life facelift for the Citroen DS5, which emerged with a new look in 2015, when it also became known simply as the DS 5. You still have to go to a Citroen showroom to buy one. As before, the DS 5 slots into the compact executive segment, where it competes with models like the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series, as well as more mainstream models like the Volkswagen Passat and Ford Mondeo. It’s certainly distinctive. With a bold front end that ditched its predecessor’s double chevron grille and familiar Citroen face in favour of a new design referred to as the ‘DS wings’. The design is distinctly bolder than other models in this class, and there’s a similar story inside, with loads of quirky details and a smattering of high quality materials on the dash. Just two specifications are available – Elegance and Prestige – as well as a limited run special edition called the 1955 to celebrate 60 years since the original Citroen DS was launched. All cars come with 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, touchscreen sat-nav and dual-zone climate control, as well as Bluetooth, DAB and rear parking sensors. Upgrading to the Prestige gets you xenon headlights, an electrically-operated driver’s seat and a reversing camera. Engine choices start with a basic BlueHDI 120, and progress through more powerful BlueHDi 150 and 180 versions. There’s also a THP 165 petrol and flagship diesel Hybrid 4x4, which claims to return as much as 72.4mpg. BlueHDi diesels are efficient and smooth, but the DS 5’s chassis is neither sporty nor luxurious Pitched as a potential rival to premium badged opposition like the BMW 3 Series, the DS 5’s driving performance has a lot to live up to. Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite manage to impress – on the one hand it’s not sufficiently responsive or engaging to appeal to enthusiastic drivers, and on the other hand the ride lacks sufficient compliance or finesse to tick the luxury box. In particular, the ride with the 19-inch wheels is very firm. The 17-inch alloys are much better, and updated suspension fitted from 2015 does well to soak up the worst lumps and bumps without feeling too uncomfortable. So you could argue the new improved DS 5 is reminiscent of old Citroens, but the truth is the current Citroen C5 with air-suspension is more comfortable on the road. First impressions of the new BlueHDi engines are good. They’re quiet on the move, with a refined idle and a smooth note up to the mid-revs. Only when you’re accelerating hard do they take on more of a diesel-like roughness. All but the entry-level BlueHDi 120 offer enough punch for easy overtaking – its claimed 0-62mph time is a leisurely 12.7 seconds, but even this basic unit has plenty of power for longer motorway trips The BlueHDi 150 is our pick of the range, mixing performance and running costs for the best compromise – the claimed 0-62mph time is 10.6 seconds, with a 127mph top speed. The BlueHDi 180 is quicker still with a 9.9 second 0-62mph time and a 137mph top speed, but the DS 5 is far from a sports car, so we don’t really see the benefit in a big and powerful diesel engine. Elsewhere in the range there’s a THP 165 petrol engine and an even more powerful THP 210 petrol, which do 0-62mph in 10.4 and 8.1 seconds respectively – the latter offering a 146mph top speed. The flagship model (though not quite the fastest) is the 197bhp diesel-electric Hybrid, which offers punchy acceleration and also has four-wheel drive. 0-62mph comes up in 9.3 seconds, and it’s flat out at 131mph.
Conventional 5-door hatchback looks to expand China-only DS range; will be offered as petrol automatic only
Fresh details on the new DS 4S has been unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show, as the new model expands the French brand’s line-up in its most crucial market to four vehicles.
The DS 4S is a conventional five-door hatchback, and it looks like a cross between Citroen’s existing C4 and the Peugeot 308. It’ll be built in China, at PSA’s joint venture factory in Shenzen, and will be offered with a choice of turbocharged petrol engines - a three-cyilnder PureTech unit with 129bhp, and a 1.8-litre THP motor producing either 158bhp or 197bhp. Due to customer tastes in China, the only transmission on offer will be a six-speed automatic.
DS says the car will feature a dashboard clad in hand-crafted leather and a range of six exterior paint finishes. It’ll be sold through the company’s expanding dealer network in China, which now stretches to 100 stores in 60 cities.
The 4S will slot into the bottom of DS’s line-up in China, below the DS 5 hatchback, the DS 5 LS saloon and the DS 6 SUV. It is not expected to be sold outside of China.
