Citroen has released teaser images of the new DS 5SL saloon, aimed solely at the Chinese market. The official announcement from Citroen states, ‘On December 19th a new DS premium class sedan will be revealed: DS 5LS. Save the date!’
The images don’t give too much away but they do give us a sneak peak at the alloy wheel design, angular headlights and rounded taillights inspired by the DS Wild Rubis concept. It will be based on the DS5 but have a more practical saloon body.
It will be produced in collaboration with Chinese manufacturer Dongfeng, which will help build on the expansion of the Citroen brand. Shipping cars to markets like China as well as Brazil and Russia is becoming a vital part of manufacturers’ growth.
The DS 5SL will be officially unveiled on December 19 at a special event to be held at The Louvre in Paris, ahead of likely sales in China in the first quarter of 2014.
