DS, the new luxury offshoot of French carmaker Citroen, has revealed a sharp new hatch concept this week.

Set to debut at next month’s Paris Motor Show, this new Divine DS (should that be DS Divine? - Ed) is expected to preview the next evolution of the new premium brand’s styling language.

The DS brand was first previewed with the debut in 2009 of the ‘Inside’ concept, later revealed as the DS3 hatch that hit Australia late in 2010.

The brand’s most recent models have quietly dropped the Citroen chevron badges, marking the move toward a standalone premium position.

In revealing the new Divine hatch concept this week, DS has again signalled its intention to become its own unique brand inside the PSA Peugeot Citroen family.

DS boss Yves Bonnefont describes the Divine as an exercise in “avante garde design”, promising “visible technologies, refinement and a balance between comfort and dynamics”.

Bonnefont says that rather than previewing any specific new model, the Divine is a hint at the marque’s overall new styling language.

The concept's styling also shares more than a little in common with the new DS 6WR SUV, which has so far been confirmed only for the Chinese market.

But as a small hatch, the Divine could be imagined as a replacement or companion for the high-riding DS4.

Both are similar in length - the Divine at 4210mm and the DS4 at 4275mm - but the new concept is noteably different in other dimensions: 170mm wider at 1980mm, and 180mm lower at 1350mm tall.

Perhaps no surprise, power in the Divine is provided by Peugeot’s familiar 1.6 turbocharged petrol engine, producing the same 199kW offered with the RCZ R coupe.

Watch for the Divine to make its debut in Paris next month.
