At the upcoming 2013 Shanghai Auto Show, Citroen will unveil its new DSX Concept car that previews a new SUV set to target models like the Audi Q5 und BMW X3. The new model will be built on the same platform as the DS5 and its production variant will be unveiled in 2014. The model will be initially offered in China and after that will arrive in Europe.

The new concept will have a length of 4.70 meters (185.04 inches) - about the same size as the Audi A5. The production version is rumored to be offered with petrol and diesel engines, which will deliver from 160 to 200 horsepower. There will also be a hybrid version that will combine a 1.6-liter THP petrol engine with an electric motor for a total output of 240 horsepower.

The hybrid model will be offered in an all-wheel-drive version where the electric motor will drive the rear wheels, while the petrol engine powers the front wheels. For non-hybrid models, only a front-wheel-drive version will be offered.

When put on sale, the production version will be priced at about €39,000 (about $52,500 at the current exchange rates).

We’ll update this review, once Citroen releases additional information on the concept.

The 2013 Citroen DSX looks alright and the color looks unique. I just hope that the rumor about the production version is true. It is because it will be nice to choose from petrol and diesel engines or hybrid version.
