We admit that a teaser photo of a wheel, albeit a pretty sick-looking one at that, isn’t much to go by. But Citroen doesn’t believe so, which is why it sounds so excited promoting the upcoming debut of the model they’ve christened the DS 5LS.
There’s not much to go by with the teaser apart from the slick alloys and the fact that Citroen has described the model as a "new premium class sedan".
So, it’s a luxury car that will likely have all the bells and whistles typically found in vehicles of its segment. We admit that the curiosity of seeing this model when it makes its debut is making us believe that the DS 5LS sedan will be one that will be talked about by a lot of people in the days leading up to the debut and even well after that.
It’s also worth pointing out that this model could be another vehicle for the Chinese market, the only place in the world where Citroen’s DS line is marketed as a stand-alone brand. Maybe there’s more to it that we still don’t know about.
The good thing is we won’t have to wait too long to find out if these fancy alloys are the highlight of the entire vehicle, or a part of something really, really awesome.
We’re hitching our wagons on the latter and crossing our fingers that we won’t be disappointed.
