Citroen have officially revealed the DS 6WR model foolowing a strong circulation of both spied images and rumours. The DS3 and DS6 models at Citroen have won numerous awards regarding both its style and ability and expect the success of the model in terms of sales to continue the upwards trend.
Over the years we have seen Citroen build a good reputation for themselves and they have had much success in both the new and used car industry with models such as the DS range along with the hugely successful range of C badged models. However, the new DS 6WR is set to only increase the success of the DS model in market places such as the UK.
Well this week when the vehicle was officially revealed to the general public and media alike, we have heard about some of the engine features and performance rates that should make this model a perfect all round car. Firstly we see the engine come in the form of the 1.6 litre e-THP engine that overall will produce 160 brake horsepower whereas, the option of a 1.6 litre THP motor will be up for grabs which produces around 200bhp.
Both variations of the car have six speed, automatic gearboxes and are both front wheel drive machines. The DS 6WR will also benefit from all new headlights and a re designed chrome grille too. So, with that in mind we see this car as a high potential rival for the likes of Peugeot, Ford and Volkswagen with some similar rated models in regards to performance.
Well sadly here, the vehicle is only currently set for a release onto the Chinese market near the end of the year with an exact date still yet to be announced. There are currently no plans to bring the car here to the UK but we do expect that it is a high possibility in the near future.
