Cool Citroen DS9 Limousine
As previously reported, Citroen is going to challenge the leading German automakers in the market premium sedans, and the first step in this direction will be the model of DS9.
To start manufacturing the new model, PSA / Peugeot-Citroen has teamed up with Chinese firm Changan Automobile Group. Details of the agreement were not disclosed, there is no information about the planned release date of the car, but the company says that it will be a real competitor to the Audi A8 and BMW 750Li.
Proportion of future models should be similar in concept to Metropolis, 5300 mm (length) and 2 000 mm (width). The platform will be borrowed from the Citroen C6 and Peugeot 407, but supplemented by some elements, as with the Audi A8.
At one time, the concept of Metropolis was equipped with a 2.0-liter V-6, augmented by an electric motor and connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. But now the company says that the most likely hybrid technology will be replaced by a traditional internal combustion engines.
