New DS 3 Crossback small SUV unveiled
Citroen’s upmarket brand, DS Automobiles, has revealed its new small SUV, the DS 3 Crossback, at the Paris Motor Show.
The DS 3 Crossback will replace the popular DS 3 hatchback, and rival the likes of the Toyota C-HR, and Volkswagen T-Roc.
This will be the first car sold by DS to have an all-electric powertrain option. The EV model will have a range of 186 miles, according to the new WLTP testing.
From an 11kW wall box, it will take five hours to charge, and will take around 30 minutes to charge from 0-80% on a fast 100kW charger.
If you’re looking at a petrol or diesel engine though, you’ll be able to pick from a 1.5-litre diesel with 100 horsepower, or a 1.2-litre petrol engine with 100, 130 or 155 horsepower. All have the option of manual or automatic gearboxes, and the most powerful petrol engine will come with an eight-speed automatic.
There are no details on pricing yet, but it’s likely to cost quite a bit more than the DS 3 hatchback it’s indirectly replacing. It goes on sale in spring 2019.
