PostHeaderIcon 2018 DS 7 Crossback UK Pricing and Specs Announced

Behold the quirkiest, funkiest, most interesting SUV in the market today! The new DS 7 Crossback gears up for launch in the British market where it is priced from £28,050 to £50,000. That’s a pretty wide range, and that’s because there are 10 different trims to choose from. 

Whichever you go for, though, you get the special charm of DS 7 Crossback which is due in large part to its LED VISION lighting system, 3D rear lights, and the rather chunky profile. Granted, this car is nowhere near as wonderfully crazy as the old Citroens we all know and love. But compared to something like the Audi Q5, this thing is still a freakin’ wonderland.

The bulk of the effort in making 2018 DS 7 Crossback special has been spent inside the cabin. Here you get five different themes, or Inspirations, to choose from. There is DS Inspiration Bastille featuring textured patterns and padded upholstery, and subtle finishes with warm gold and silver accents, DS Inspiration Rivoli boasting combined with high-end diamond-shaped decoration, DS Inspiration Opéra with nappa leather in basalt black or chestnut brown and DS Inspiration PERFORMANCE LINE with Alcantara trimming.

DS 7 is available with two petrol engines, PureTech 180 or PureTech 225, and two turbocharged diesel, BlueHDi 130 with a manual gearbox or BlueHDi 180 with an automatic gearbox. In 2019 a plug-in hybrid electric powertrain will be added to the range.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Citroen C3 Elle Special Edition Has Cherry Pink Accents

Ladies, if you want to stand out this season with a car whose color accents match that of your lip gloss, we have good news. The new Citroen C3 Elle Special Edition is a new iteration of the French hatchback created in collaboration with ELLE fashion magazine, and it is as thoroughly feminine as a pussy hat.  

Priced from £15,595 OTR, the 2018 Citroen C3 Elle Special Edition comes with a Polar White body complemented with Soft Sand two-tone roof as standard, Gloss Black door mirrors and original accents in cherry pink on the fog light surrounds, Airbump and rear quarter-light graphic. Of course, you also get ELLE badges on the outside, because what is the point of rocking a cool brand if you cannot boasts about it. The pink continues inside on stitching of the grey seat upholstery and on the dashboard surround.

As for the equipment, the list includes ConnectedCAM Citroën, Citroën Connect Nav, Citroën Connect Box with Emergency & Assistance system, Active Safety Brake, Driver Attention Alert, Collision Risk Alert and Intelligent Beam Headlights. What that means is, you are at all times kept entertained and protected against potential accients. So go ahead and apply that make up as you drive along. Chances are you will get away with it.

Engine-wise, not that any woman has eve cared about what sort of engine she has in her car, Citroen C3 Elle can be had with either PureTech 82 or PureTech 110 S&S. We can tell you that you should go for the latter, because it’s smoother, has start/stop which reduces fuel consumption, and comes with a comfy six speed automatic gearbox.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Citroen C4 Cactus Gears Up for UK Launch

The fans of funky little cars all over Britain rejoice as the new 2018 Citroen C4 Cactus becomes available to order today! The quirky French hatchback won’t reach the showrooms until April, but you can secure yours right now from just £17,265.

Based on Citroen Advanced Comfort programme with comfort seats and Progressive Hydraulic cushions, the 2018 Citroen C4 Cactus is probably the most comfortable and relaxing car in its class. That is a highly desirable quality if you predominantly use it in busy city centers. The B-road travelers may find that the safe comfort results in less than savory handling around the corners. Not that the Cactus is fast enough to get you in trouble around corners. The engine lineup includes three 3-cylinder PureTech petrol engines and a highly efficient BlueHDi 100 S&S diesel unit.

While tamer than its predecessor, the 2018 Citroen C4 Cactus still has a kind of niche design that does not appeal to everybody. But if you get past that, you will be rewarded with an amazing array of technology features. The new Cactus can be specified with Active Safety Brake, Grip Control and Lane Departure Warning as well as Citroen Connect Nav, Citroeën Connect Box with the brand’s Emergency & Assistance system and Mirror Screen functionality. There is also Front Fog Lights with Cornering Function, Blind Spot Monitoring System, Coffee Break Alert, Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation, and…

PostHeaderIcon Citroen C3 R5 Gears Up for First Public Outing

Things are looking for World Rally Championship (WRC) season 2018 judging by the cars set to compete in it. We saw the first shot of the new Polo WRC a few days ago, and now in a few days we will get to see this bad boy in action, the new Citroen C3 R5. It looks pretty good. Pretty, pretty, pretty good!

Set to replace last season’s champion, the D3 R5, the new Citroen C3 R5 has been under constant testing since September. The team has put the new rally car through a battery of tough evaluations on tarmac and gravel. The test drivers Stéphane Lefebvre, Craig Breen and Yoann Bonato have already racked up over 4,000km in testing in the C3, giving it a big thumbs up after every session. Now the car is all set forits first public appearance during the Rallye du Var, the final round of the French Championship, on 23-26 November.

Citroen C3 R5 will be one of the ‘zero’ cars at the event, meaning it has a number ‘0’ on its door which indicates it is not racing competitively. It would be a good laugh if the non-FIA homologous car actually win the rally. It would make this guy, who’s not yet left the womb, pretty worried:

The VW Polo R5 GTI is shaping up to be a serious WRC contender, already trash talking the competition with its big numbers and swollen arches. What’s more important, perhaps, than who wins the races is how these rally cars will affect the market of the road-going models they are based on. Looks-wise, we have to say we’d rather have the hot hatch fruit of the C3’s loins. But performance-wise, I don’t know, it’s hard to ignore how good that Polo GTI is.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Citroen C4 Cactus Is an Ultra-Comfortable Hatchback

That is what Citroen calls the latest version of its quirky C4 Cactus. The hatchback has received a major overhaul for the new year, including high-tech suspension and revised styling details. Rest assured, the 2018 Citroen C4 Cactus is going to stand out in its segment like the Chinese kid in the Jolie-Pitt family. 

The suspension system which the French auto maker claims makes 2018 Citroen C4 Cactus the most comfortable car in its class is a Progressive Hydraulic Cushion affair with secondary hydraulic dampers. They deliver a sort of ‘magic carpet ride’ which isn’t perfect, at least it wasn’t on the previous versions of the car, but is considerably better than the standards of the hatchback class. And that’s on its own is enough reason to consider the Cactus. A nice and smooth ride is something car makers don’t really care about with their smaller models.

But PHC is not the only comfort feature of 2018 Citroen C4 Cactus. The hatchback comes with new, thicker foam for the seats which are ideal for longer drives. One fears one might fall sleep behind the wheel of the Cactus, what with these seats and that suspension. Visually, the new model does away with prominent Airbumps – thank heavens for that – and instead introduces a couple of discreet ones on the side sills. So you still get the rugged look and the protection, but your car doesn’t look like it has a tropical disease. Another highlights of the 2018 Cactus C4 is the addition of a 128 bhp three-cyinder PureTech with peppy performance.

PostHeaderIcon DS E-Tense Makes UK Debut Inside Shopping Center

In what can be described as an all-in-one publicity package, Citroen’s sub-brand DS took over a shopping center in Westfield, London. The The venue was DS Urban Store, the reason was to let the DS E-Tense concept to roam free, and the man driving the concept was DS Virgin Racing driver Sam Bird.

And just to milk the occasion fully, they also brought out the DS7 Crossback SUV for a guest appearance. It all made for a spectacular clip in which Sam Bird went joyriding inside the shopping center in the spectacularly stunning high-performance electric GT, the DS E-Tense. To be fair though, he could have driven the E-Tense inside the center during the day since it’s a silent, zero-emission EV. But then again, the silent operation would probably have caused problem with the shoppers it would inevitably run over!

The magnificent DS E-Tens is powered by a 402 horsepower and 516 Nm electric motor and features cues from Citroen’s most iconic cars in its design. The EV also features an exclusive metallic green ametrine body and LED vision headlights.










Paul Buttigieg, Westfield’s Director of Operations, says: “We like to go the extra mile for our partners to help them create innovative content to drive awareness and sales. Giving a leading racing driver the green light to take a spin inside one of our centres was a real first but having built such a positive relationship with DS Automobiles over the past few years we wanted to help them create a standout moment to mark the UK debut of the DS E-TENSE.”

PostHeaderIcon Citroen SpaceTourer Rip Curl Concept – IAA 2017

Citroen’s 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) lineup includes a cool and funky camper van. Arriving in concept form, the Citroen SpaceTourer Rip Curl apparently symbolizes “fun without limits.” What that implies is open to interpretation, but as a camper van it doesn’t seem quite as excellent as the VW California XXL.

Still, Citroen SpaceTourer Rip Curl Concept is only a fun project the French automaker has done with the sporting equipment brand. It has no immediate production value. That said, they have been quite serious about making it look so. The van features 4×4 conversion by Automobiles Dangel and boasts a full motorhome environment thanks to special interior and exterior appointments. The goal here has been to offer an all-in-one package to outdoor adventure seekers. So the SpaceTourer is spacious and robust, easy to use and practical. And yes, it does have a pop-up roof. But like we said it ain’t non XXL.

Citroen SpaceTourer Rip Curl will be travelling across Europe with the Rip Curl team as part of the “Rip Curl Tour by Citroën” initiative, between October 2017 and January 2018. What will happen to it after that in terms of production is not clear yet. Citroen has in the past offered limited editions of their popular concepts, so seeing this thing out in the real world is not entirely out of the question yet.

PostHeaderIcon Citroen C3 Aircross

One look at the current automotive landscape is all you need to see the incredible popularity of the crossover and SUV bodystyle. Not only is the high-riding, off-roader-esque style widespread in the U.S, but it’s gaining steam overseas as well. Taking advantage of the upwards trend is French automaker Citroen, which is reinvigorating its C3 nameplate with a new, next-gen crossover dubbed the C3 Aircross. Packing loads of customization options, a host of modern interior technology, and a wide selection of efficient gas and diesel powerplants, the C3 hopes to bring Citroen that sweet jacked-up hatchback success in a variety of markets across the world (minus the States, of course).

Framed as a “people-minded” crossover “inspired by customer expectations,” the new C3 Aircross follows in the footsteps of the Citroen C3 Aircross Concept revealed in April at the Shanghai Auto Show, while also drawing inspiration from the C-Aircross concept that dropped at the Geneva Motor Show. Now, following an official debut at the Paris Motor Show, we have a ton of info on the new production-ready Citroen C3 Aircross. Read on for all the details.

PostHeaderIcon Citroen C5 Aircross Bows in China, Comes to Europe in 2018

SUVs and crossovers are still gaining traction on the market, and it’s no surprise that more and more automakers are rolling out such products. Citroen is one of them, and it just launched the C5 Aircross at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show. Bigger than the upcoming C3 crossover (as the name itself suggest), the C5 Aircross is based on the same EMP2 architecture as the Peugeot 3008, DS 7 Crossback, and Vauxhall Grandland X. Set to go on sale in China this year and in Europe in 2018, the C5 Aircross is aimed at products such as the Nissan Qashqai, Kia Sportage, and Mazda CX-5. The Aircross’ styling is based on Citroen’s latest design language.

Up front, we have the traditional Chevron grille and two distinct pairs of headlamps. There are thin daytime running lights above, and the more conventional headlamps below, both using LED technology. The sides are as traditional as they get with crossovers, while the rear section showcases large LED taillights and a rather steep tailgate. Inside, the Aircross aims at the premium market. There’s a 12.3-inch screen instead of the conventional instrument cluster dials, while the eight-inch screen in the center stack provides access to the infotainment and navigation systems. The crossover also comes with a comprehensive safety package, the Progressive Hydraulic Cushions suspension, and adaptive cruise control. Motivation comes from four-cylinder engines rated at anywhere between 165 and 200 horsepower, but a hybrid drivetrain with a total output of 300 horses will be introduced later on. This gasoline-electric combo will make the C5 Aircross the first Citroen to feature plug-in hybrid technology.

PostHeaderIcon New Citroen C5 Aircross Unveiled in Shanghai

C5 AIRCROSS-1

At the start of the 2017 Shanghai Motor show Citroen went live with the launch of a new Aircross series SUV.The 2018 Citroen C5 Aircross sits atop the Cactus in the range, offering lager size and a more imposing, but no less quirky, design and premium features. 

As you may have guessed seeing this car making debut in China, Citroen C5 Aircross will be released first in the market in October. Europe and the rest of the world will have to wait till the second quarter of 2018 to get this bad boy.

True to its traditions and values as the maker of slightly crazy but amazingly comfortable cars, Citroen has given the new C5 Aircross the latest application of their Advance Comfort systems featuring a revolutionary new suspension system with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions. That is comfortable to read, let alone to ride. The SUV puts an emphasis on the interior, which plays a major part in making the Aricross one of the most comfortable cars out there, with its ‘people-minded’ design and features. You get a 2.73m wheelbase which means ample space, and you get gadgets like a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8-inch HD touchscreen.

Citroen C5 Aircross is also packed with safety gear, including Active Safety Brake, Active Lane Departure Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop Function. The car even features Grip Control and Hill Assist Descent Control to help you enjoy an off-road adventure in complete safety. New C5 Aircross will also be the first Citroën available with PHEV Plug-In Hybrid technology. So fair to say you are well-covered tech-wise. You just need to decide if you can live with that funky body with its 3D face and bumpy panels.

PostHeaderIcon DS 7 Crossback

Citroën has been around since 1919, but its premium sub-brand, DS Automobiles has only been around since its announcement back in 2009 – making the brand just shy of a decade old. Since then, the brand has released a few concepts and no fewer than six individual models that include the DS 3, DS 6, two iterations of the DS 4, and two iterations of the DS 5. Now with the upcoming Geneva Auto Show, the DS brand is set to release a new SUV, aptly called the DS7.

It will fight against models like the Lexus NX, Audi Q2, and even the BMW X1 – a tall order, but not exactly unfathomable given the looks, luxury, and comfort offered by the brand’s newest SUV… uhem… Crossback. Designed with comfort and performance in mind, the DS 7 features a plug-in hybrid drivetrain that delivers some 300 ponies through all four wheels when needed. Features like DS Night Vision, DS Active Scan Suspension, DS Connected Pilot, and a pair of 12-inch screens inside are present – all of which poses a strong proposition for the competition.

There are even rumors that this newest model could, in fact, bring the Citroën brand – or at least some derivative of it – back to the U.S. for the first time in nearly three decades. Of course, word has it that its initial reentry will be trough a company called TravelCar which would help the brand introduce its newest models to the U.S. market as rental or ride-share vehicles. But, before we get too far ahead of ourselves and get too excited, that’s still some time away, and the DS7 is still headed to Geneva Motor Show. So, let’s take a better look at DS’ newest SUV and talk more about it.

Just like its production models, French automaker Citroen is known for producing odd, yet oddly likable concept cars. Merging obvious production vehicle allusions and never-gonna-happen design study gloss, the concepts are usually a mixed bag, but almost always eye-catching. Such is the case with the latest C-Aircross Concept, which was just revealed ahead of its in-the-metal debut at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show next month. Following on the heels of Citroen’s Aircross Concept revealed back in 2015, the latest Aircross is a compact crossover that previews an upcoming production version of the crossover destined to replace the current C3 Picasso MPV. Clearly, Citroen is far more interested in SUVs, and as such, the production variant of this concept will offer the same softroader cues, including a tall body style, large wheels, flared fenders, and space in the back for things. The C-Aircross Concept also promises new interior tech and interior design, with a cabin space that’s just as wild, if not wilder, than the exterior.

And why not? Crossovers and SUVs continue to surge in popularity in a variety of markets, so the transition from MPV to SUV makes a lot of sense for the brand, especially with a (relatively) fresh design for the exterior panels and interior space.

Linda Jackson, Citroen’s CEO, had this to say – “The C-Aircross Concept demonstrates Citroen’s pursuit of its international product offensive. Based on the state-of-mind of New C3, it illustrates a different vision for the compact SUV segment, full of confidence and boldness.”

Although Citroen has expressed interest in tackling the U.S. market sometime in the future, the production variant of this concept will almost certainly not make it stateside. That said, interested European customers will likely get an eyeful with a debut sometime this fall, while an on-sale date will likely follow before the end of the year.

So then – what’s this thing really previewing, and what will actually make it to production? Read on to find out all the details.

PostHeaderIcon Citroën SpaceTourer 4×4 Ë Concept

For the second straight year, Citroen’s participation at the Geneva Motor Show involves a concept vehicle that showcases the sportier and more aggressive side of the otherwise mild-mannered demeanor of a van, or SpaceTourer, as Citroen likes to call them. Last year, it was the SpaceTourer Hyphen Concept that was prominently featured in the French automaker’s stand. This year, it’s the SpaceTourer 4×4 Ë Concept’s turn under the Geneva spotlight, and like most concept’s go, it’s promising out-of-the-box features, at least when you compare it to what vans are supposed to be.

In a nutshell, the SpaceTourer 4×4 Ë Concept is an adventurous take of the French automaker’s resident mid-sized MPV. It may look the part of the SpaceTourer, but deep inside lies an identity that we usually don’t associate with vehicles of its ilk. Suffice to say, the SpaceTourer 4×4 Ë Concept is designed to be rough and rugged, equally capable of being a weekend family car and an adventure-seeking, all-terrain rough-rider. It certainly helps too, that Citroen is also presenting the SpaceTourer 4×4 Ë Concept with a packet full of features and technologies, not to mention a distinct look that helps elevate the concept’s outdoors-leaning personality.

The new SpaceTourer concept is all set to be presented in Geneva as part of Citroen’s new “Ë” lifestyle range. It may not be the flashiest concept we’ll see in the show – MPVs never are – but it’s certainly one that we need to keep a close eye on, if only for the possibility that we might end up getting a production version in the near future. That may not be a foregone conclusion, but we know what happens to concepts that are well received in Geneva.

Citroen C-Aircross Concept-0

The world of compact SUVs is full to the brim with various brands and options, but crucially they all look pretty much the same. Now though there is a new player in this segment which looks refreshingly different. It’s the new Citroen C-Aircross Concept and it previews what an extremely French crossover would look like if they decided to make it.

Design-wise, Citroen C-Aircross Concept is very hard to mistake for anything but a Citroen. It is strongly influenced by the car maker’s current lineup, especially the new C3, and it has the overall look and feel of the Aircross series to it which a lot of people don’t like. Then again, this is still a concept and it can get away with boasting features such as rear-hinged doors at the back. That said, features like quilt-effect seats, large windows and panoramic roof could make it into the production version. Other Citoren-y highlights include a colour head-up display, a single spoke steering wheel with intuitive controls, rear facing cameras and wireless induction charging for smartphones.

Citroen C-Aircross Concept, as befits a car from this unique brand, puts a premium on comfort and peace of mind. It begins with a light and cozy interior with comfy seats, and continues with Advanced Comfort features such ergonomically placed buttons and easy to use technology features including Connect Nav, a 3D connected navigation system with voice recognition. The concept also features Citroen’s Grip Control dial which enables different driving mode for the crossover including Standard, Snow, Sand, Off-road and ESP Off which allows the driver to deactivate the ESP (active up to 50km/h or 31mph).

PostHeaderIcon DS Sports Car Concept Could Get A Production Future

With so many concept debuts happening in any given year in the automotive world, it’s hard to keep track of all these prototypes. There are a few though that stick in our heads, either because of their dramatic good looks or their impressive performance credentials. Then there are those that hit us squarely on both spots and these are the concepts that we actually look forward to seeing production guise. The DS E-Tense Concept from the 2016 Geneva Motor Show counts as one of these concepts and according to Autocar, we might end up seeing a production version of the electric supercar a lot sooner than we had hoped for.

Apparently, DS, the luxury division of the PSA Group that was born out of French automaker Citroen has filed a trademark for the E-Tense name, a sign that the automaker has bigger plans for the concept that stole the show in Geneva last year. Granted, filing a trademark doesn’t automatically mean that the name in question will be used in production form. We’ve seen automakers file trademarks in the past before, only to not do anything with them.

But there are reasons to believe that DS has plans to use the E-Tense name in the future. For one, PSA boss Carlos Tavares has made his opinions clear of a performance car acting as a halo model for DS. The man thinks that there’s enormous potential for the car if it does end up going to production. The French auto giant even took the E-Tense Concept out on the streets of Paris shortly after its debut in Geneva to gauge public reaction for the car. Then there’s the fact that despite being labeled as a concept, DS actually built the model to production car standards, allowing it to be used as technology demonstrator to showcase all of its wares in real-world settings.

Read the tea leaves and there is cause to be optimistic about the E-Tense Concept’s chance of making it to production. Just don’t expect it to happen right away because the priority within the DS brand is to introduce an SUV to the market by 2018. That’s the more pressing concern at the moment. Once the SUV is out though, look for the buzz surrounding the E-Tense Concept to pick up once again.
