Prior to the 2014 Paris Motor Show, Citroen unveiled its all-new Divine DS Concept, a vehicle that previews future models for the DS brand. According to the French company, the Divine DS captures the very essence of the DS and when it comes to design, the vehicle features unique lines, the DS Wings at the front, dramatic lines on the sides and a unique roof design.
The interior is quite impressive and arrives with an avant-garde design and with a new philosophy for personalization, referred to as ‘Hyper-typage’. Citroen says that the interior features three interchangeable ambiances, each with its own original and unique style.
The new concept called ‘Hyper-typage’ extends the idea of personalization and three ‘dress codes’ can be changed to suit the ambience. ‘Male’ alternates carbon fiber and glazed, burnished leather, while ‘Parisienne Chic’ includes full grain ivory-coloured leather with pleated silk and satin.
‘Fatale Punk’ creates a special ambience thanks to black, padded leather studded with crystals and Swarovski fabric. The interior includes digital systems such as touch screen holographic display in order to showcase the latest in-car technology.
The seats are wrapped in full-grain aniline leather and represent a striking take on the existing DS watch strap design. Other highlights of the Divine DS Concept are the stylish headlights that feature laser technology, facets on the roof which open in order to reveal a reversing camera and optimized aerodynamics.
The 20-inch alloy wheels get a special design thanks to the floating spokes that appear to be disconnected from the hubs. Under the hood, there is the same engine found on the Peugeot Exalt Concept, a 1.6-liter THP petrol engine that produces 270 hp and 330 Nm of torque between 1,900 and 5,500 rpm. The engine is Euro 6 compliant and CO2 emissions reach only 145 g/km of CO2.
