Citroën going after Fiat 500 with new DS1 at Geneva
Enter the DS1. Since launching the DS line (pictured above) with the DS3, Citroën has focused on going bigger and more expensive, with vehicles like the DS4 and DS5. But rumor has it that, at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March, Citroën will debut a new entry to slot in below the current DS line.
Sources expect the new DS1 to measure less than 12 feet long and pack a choice of three-cylinder engines with less than 100 horsepower on tap, but that a performance version could offer closer to 130. We'll have to wait a few to find out one way or another, but the Fiat 500 (as popular as it's been overseas, but slow-selling on American shores) will have to sit up and take notice.
