A new SUV from DS Automobiles, the Groupe’s PSA premium brand, is undergoing road tests in the snow.
Spies caught a test mule on camera. DS and its technical partner Bosch are testing a ESP stability control system, Auto Express informs.
The vehicle hiding under the camouflage is the DS 4 Crossback. It will sit between the small DS 3 Crossback and the flagship DS 7 Crossback in the brand’s range.
Like the larger DS 7, this new crossover is based on PSA’s EMP2 platform and will probably receive the same turbocharged engines – 1.2-liter 3-cylinder and 1.6-liter 4-cylinder ones up to 223 hp.
We also expect a plug-in hybrid modification with two electric motors, a lithium-ion battery and all-wheel drive, with total output of 300 hp.
The 2021 DS 4 Crossback will go on sale in Europe early next year. Its possible debut takes place at the 2020 Paris Motor Show in October. It will be a rival for the Audi Q3, the Volvo XC40, the BMW X1, the Mercedes-Benz GLA.
