2021 Citroen DS4

2021 Citroen DS4

Citroen’s luxury brand has a lot riding on the success of the premium family hatchback

It’s been around six years since Citroen spun the DS line into its own sub-brand, and while the latter has had a modest amount of success standing in its own legs, there’s a general feeling that the DS brand still has plenty of untapped potential. The French automaker hopes to unlock some of that potential with the new DS4. The upscale four-door hatchback is an important model for DS, largely because of the popularity of the segment it occupies.

That popularity, though, comes at a price, specifically with the models that the DS4 will compete against. We’re not talking about riff-raffs here; this segment is also occupied by a handful of German stalwarts, including the Audi A3, BMW 1 Series, and Mercedes A-Class. Still, if DS wants to be taken more seriously as an upscale brand, this is the segment where it needs to show its mettle. The DS4 will be tasked to do just that, and if the hatchback lives up to DS’s expectations, it can go a long way in adding some shine and boosting brand awareness for Citroen’s luxury brand.

2021 DS 8

2021 DS 8

The company’s biggest sedan yet will go after the BMW 5 Series and Audi A6

The 2021 DS 8 is an upcoming midsize sedan from DS Automobile, the premium division of Citroen. The 2021 DS 8 is the company’s first venture into the midsize sedan market and it will be DS’ largest four-door yet, slotting above the DS 5LS.

Aimed at sedans like the BMW 5 Series, Audi A6, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the 2021 DS 8 will share underpinnings with the Citroen C4 Picasso and the Peugeot 508. Spotted testing since 2019, the DS 8 will probably break cover in 2020. Like most DS products, it will be unveiled in China initially, but will be sold in Europe as well.

Spy Shots: Citroen Picasso Caught Testing Camo Free

Spy Shots: Citroen Picasso Caught Testing Camo Free

Everyone was expecting to see the new Citroen Picasso revealed at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, but the French company decided to only come with a concept version. The production version is continuing its testing session and our spy photographers have caught testing again in Sweden, but this time it was camo-free.

The new Picasso will be offered with the same engine range found in the C4, so that customers will have to choose between both petrol and HDi diesel engines. A hybrid version - Hybrid4 - similar to the one offered in the DS5 and Peugeot 3008 will also be offered.

Initially, the new Picasso will be offered as a five-door model, but a seven-seat model, called the C4 Grand Picasso, will also be offered.

The production version Picasso will likely be unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

Spy shots: 2014 Citroen Grand Picasso Caught Cold-Weather Testing

Spy shots: 2014 Citroen Grand Picasso Caught Cold-Weather Testing

You have probably noticed that these past few days have been pretty busy with spy shots. That’s probably because most automakers have taken their future models out for extreme testing in the bitter cold. This is exactly what Citroen did with their upcoming Grand Picasso.

When compared to the standard Picasso, the Grand Picasso version will receive longer rear doors, a boxier rear and has been specially designed for bigger families. While many were expecting sliding doors on the Grand Picasso, the new spy shots reveal that the doors will be of conventional type.

We expect many of the engines from the C4 to be carried over for the Grand Picasso, meaning you will find a range of petrol and HDi diesel engines available. Rumors suggest that the Grand Picasso could also receive the Hybrid4 system seen in the DS5 and Peugeot 3008.

The new Citroen Grand Picasso will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show and will be put on sale in late 2013.

Possible Future Citroen C4 Picasso Spotted Testing

Possible Future Citroen C4 Picasso Spotted Testing

The prototype hidden under this heavy camouflage may look unrecognizable, but clues in regards to its location and history make us believe this is the next generation Citroen C4 Picasso. First off, the car was caught testing in the north at an area where Citroen normally resides. Second, our spy photographers reported that the car was followed by two security cars from the PSA group and third, we should consider that the newest C4 was unveiled almost two years ago and the current C4 Picasso is six years old, leading us to suspect that a new car should be testing right about now.

The prototype caught testing also featured some of Citroen’s usual design elements, including small side windows behind the A-pillars, the look of the rear view mirrors, and the shared DS4 design of the rims (even though they have five bolts and not four like the DS4). It has also been reported that the new C4 Picasso model will feature a more conventional look to make room for the fancy DS models, so this prototype may be the one to illustrate that.

2013 Citroen C4 sedan

2013 Citroen C4 sedan

It’s Citroen’s turn to go out and play in the snow, and they’ve brought their new generation C4 sedan along for the ride. These spy shots were taken in Northern Scandinavia, where the chill - and the risk of being outed - has prompted Citroen to cover a lot of the vehicle in that dread camouflage.

The current C4 Sedan is sold mostly in China, but with a lot of other smaller sedans popping up from different manufacturers (remember the Astra sedan recently spotted?) there may be a chance to see this model working its way to the European market. In countries like Italy, Spain, and countries in eastern European, the smaller sedan segment is rapidly growing, giving Citroen even more reason to make a big move.

Power for the Citroen C4 sedan is expected to come from the same engine range found in the current C4 hatchback, meaning choice of both petrol and diesel engines with power ranging from 90 to 150 HP. A Stop & Start system will also be offered.

Expect to see the new Citroen C4 sedan launched by the end of 2012.

Citroen DS4 Racing coming in 2013

Citroen DS4 Racing coming in 2013

Now that Citroen has unveiled the official details on the new DS4, there are rumors about a more powerful version that will take on models like Volkswagen Golf R and Renaultsport Mégane RS. The new Citroen DS4, rumored to be called Racing will be revealed in 2013.

Like with the DS3-Racing, the future model will feature a two-tone exterior and on the interior racing seats and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. There will also be the carbon finish on the front bumper, lower body trim and wing extensions, whilst large 18” alloy wheels, chrome door handles and a chrome-finished exhaust system.

Under the hood Citroen will place the same engine used in the Peugeot RCZ - a 1.6 THP engine that delivers 200 HP. There are also rumors about a hybrid version that will combine a 1.6-liter engine driving the front wheels and a 95bhp electric motor that powers the rears.

Citroen Survolt rendering

Citroen Survolt rendering

Citroen wowed us with their ability to create the GT supercar back in 2009. This performance monster was able to produce 789bhp and changed the opinion people held about Citroen only being able to produce small, fancy cars. Apparently, Citroen liked delving into the world of exotic speed and released a second concept called the Citroen Survolt earlier this year at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. What we have here is a rendering of a production model of the Survolt created by Andrei Avarvarii. His production model loses the ridiculous rear wing, but stays true to the Citroen’s classic large, oval-shaped grill with slim, horizontal head lamps.

Not many details have been released in regards to the specs on this little beauty, but we imagine it would compete with vehicles such as the Peugeot RCZ and the Audi TT. These vehicles provide the consumer with three different engine choices with horsepower ranging from 156bhp to 211hp. If the engine on the Survolt is anything like the GT then we can safely say the Survolt could burn some rubber and leave these other two vehicles in the dust, but rumor has it this vehicle will have an electric drivetrain.

This rendering does provide us with a clear look at what a production model of this car could look like if it lost the edgier lines of the concept and gained the sophistication of Citroen’s smaller models. The history of the Citroen GT can tell us that we will probably only see a small number of these vehicles produced (only six GTs were produced) with a pricetag in the range of 1.5-2 million USD (GTs were priced at 1.8million). I don’t know about you guys, but I am buying two (in my dreams).

Citroen C5 spy shots

Citroen C5 spy shots

Citroen will unveil the new C5 in 2008, a new model that will give Citroën a new face. The new French brand’s family saloon will get the front end styling of last year’s dramatic C-Metisse concept, in an attempt to compete with Ford’s smart new Mondeo and the next Renault Laguna.
The new model will be "more conventional, but more handsome". It will also be more luxurious and built to a higher quality, with interior cues such as the twin LCD dashboard screens lifted from the innovative C4 (...)
