Citroen is following in Aston Martin's footsteps, who revealed the V12 Vantage early, by unveiling its DS3 Inside concept prior to its scheduled unveiling.
In the process, Citroen has revived the DS nameplate which will comprise a line of mid-range premium models based on the underpinnings of the C3, C4 and C5.
Word has it that this concept is very close to the production model. Judging by the images here we wouldn't be surprised if that were entirely accurate. While cross-over vehicles may not appeal to everyone, the DS3 has a certain presence about it that many CUVs lack.
Due to arrive in Europe next year, the DS3 Inside concept looks all-but sorted in these images. As it is based on the C3, we can expect to see a range of petrol and diesel engines ranging from 1.2 to 2.0 litres.
We'll keep you posted so expect further information on engine specifications and maybe pricing as Geneva draws near.
