Citroen DS3 and DS 3 Cabrio are getting upgraded via new and unique and high-tech light signature. The two models are also receiving other upgrades, including the all-new Active City Brake technology, new Euro6-compliant engines and new personalisation options. DS 3 features styling, performance and customisation which made it a real automotive icon. Since launch it has been sold in almost 300,000 units.
The new high-tech hypnotic gaze of the both DS 3 models is due to the adoption of new headlights. They combine LED and Xenon technologies with new sequential indicators, which is a world first. The new headlights provide the DS 3 with even greater visibility in both low- and high-beam positions, with lighting of exceptional quality that is also restful on the eye.
Citroen DS 5LS R concept will make an official debut at the Beijing Motor Show later this month. The car combines top-level performance with luxury styling, and emphasizes the dynamic character of the production version. The concept vehicle boasts a high performance 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine which generates 300 hp (221 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. It has a lowered chassis by 15mm, wider front tracks and a sequential gearbox, controlled by paddles behind the steering wheel.
In addition, the French company has applied high-precision development to the chassis, brakes and suspension. It has also highlighted the performance of the car visually, through the extensive use of real carbon fibre components.
