Citroen will offer DS-badged luxury SUV dubbed DSX7 also in Europe

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 25, 2013

Earlier this year at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, Citroen brought the Wild Rubis, a concept car that was created only for the Chinese market, a place where the DS brand is quite popular and shows significant profits despite the European slump. If at the beginning Citroen didn’t want to bring the DS-badged luxury SUV in Europe, it appears that things have changed and according to DS chief designer Thierry Metroz the new vehicle will be offered after all.

Metroz told Autocar that due to the positive feedback, the SUV will be offered in Europe, but the focus will be in China. The Wild Rubis will use the DS5 platform and will likely be called DSX7. The debut of the new DSX7 will be made in 2014 at the Beijing Auto Show.

Citroen is also preparing a Bmw 5-Series rival based on the Numero 9 Concept but also a Vw Jetta-sized DS saloon.
