The New Citroen DS3 Model Expected in 2016
Citroen DS3 is currently one of the most popular models of the famous French manufacturer. Since they always plan their growth in the future, it’s no surprise that they have announced their plan to introduce the new model of DS3 in 2016.
Few photos are circulating on the internet and judging by those photos we can say that 2016 Citroen DS3 will definitely integrate many design solutions seen in Citroen’s “Wild Rubies” concept (which debut in April 2013 in Shanghai).
The platform that will be used by 2016 Citroen DS3 model, will certainly be an improved basis on which the current version of DS3 is based. Citroen is working hard to lower the weight of this model and it is expected that the new model will be at least 50 kg lighter. When it comes to engines, it is expected that the DS3 model (just like their rivals Peugeot 208) will offer 1.2 liter three-cylinder Pure Tech petrol engine, with solid 90 hp and C)2 emission of less than 100 g/km. The good news for all the high speed drivers is that there will be a turbo version with an engine that has 120 hp. Another powerful engine will be the 1.6 THP with 160 hp and the inevitable diesel engines – 1.6 liter HDI with 95 and 120 hp. What is new is that even the diesel engines will produce less than 100 g/km CO2 emission.
The new generation of Citroen DS3 should be available on the market in 2016 and the official promotion is expected in September 2015 in Frankfurt.
