Citroen has registered today the DS4 CS nameplate at the Chinese trademark office, hinting at a second DS crossover planned only for the China market. As you know, Citroen has unveiled last month at the Beijing Motor Show the first SUV of the DS lineup. Named DS 6WR, the crossover will be manufactured only for the Chinese market.
According to CarNewsChina, the upcoming Citroen DS4 CS will be smaller than the 6WR and it will probably by based on the Peugeot 2008 and the upcoming Citroen C-XR.
The future Citroen DS4 CS will probably be manufactured by the local Changan-PSA joint venture and will be offered with a 1.2 liter turbocharged petrol engine. It will deliver 110 horsepower and 195 Nm peak of torque. Furthermore, there will be a more potent version with 130 horsepower and 230 Nm of torque.
The engine in question is probably the frugal 1.2 liter PureTech e-THP turbocharged petrol unit recently revealed on the Peugeot 308.Source: Citroen
