Rumours of a DS2 model have been circulating for some time, but a new push to separate the DS badge from the Citroen brand could be the catalyst for this new Audi A1 rival.
As with the recent Wild Rubis SUV concept, any future DS2 model would likely debut without the familiar Citroen chevron badge.
A stand-alone DS range would be more up-market, and a light DS2 model would be an ideal entry-level for the “new” brand, sitting below the current DS3.
Like the MINI Cooper, the DS2 will reportedly be offered with plenty of customisation options to attract buyers seeking individuality.
Although unconfirmed, engine options would likely include the 208's 60kW three-cylinder engine, along with the familiar 85kW four-cylinder diesel.
