The car has probably the best exterior design in its class. Styling obviously resonates with the DS 5LS, with the exception of the typical ‘off-road’ element – the plastic weather-cloth on the sides and on the wheel arches, and xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, gloss black door mirror housings and chrome strips on the sides.
‘Wild and refined the SUV premium’ receive only front-wheel drive, which is partly compensated by the presence Grip Control system providing ‘optimal traction’ on all types of road surface.
Dimensions DS 6WR up 4.55 m long, 1.86 m wide, 1.61 m in height, wheelbase length – 2.73 m, diameter of wheels -. 19 inches.
Under the hood is located 160-hp engine e-THP, or PS THP unit develops 200 hp Both engines are mated to a 6-band automatic transmission.
It is possible that 2018-2019 Citroen will make a decision to sell the DS 6WR outside of China, but in the next year or two will be the exclusive crossover model for the Chinese market.
