Citroen DS High Rider Concept Presented

Citroen will display the DS4 concept at the Geneva Auto Show in March but until now, the French manufacturer has rolled out several teasers to give us a glimpse into how the future model will look like. However, here is the first photo of the DS High Rider Concept, a separate vehicle that is said to preview the DS4 concept to attend Geneva.

Unfortunately, there are only a few details regarding the DS4 concept, but rumors are claiming that a production model will be unveiled at a later date, probably at the Paris Motor Show this year. Production of the DS4 is due to begin in early 2011, with sales to debut soon after that.

The DS4 is believed to borrow some things from the C4, in the same way the DS4 did from the C3. However, as you can see in the adjacent photo, the car is bigger and taller as compared to the C4. Full details of the car are likely to be provided by the end of the week, prior to the public unveiling at Geneva.

Earlier rumors suggested that the DS4 will be based on the C-Sportlounge coupe-come-MPV hybrid concept displayed in 2005 but will also use some design cues of the current C4 model. It could be used by Citroen to compete against Nissan Qashqai and Peugeot 3008.

The next-generation Citroen C4, which is likely to be revealed this year at the Paris Motor Show - with sales to begin soon after that, will employ several engines, including a high-power unit that will develop around 200 hp. The same configuration, or at least a similar setup, is likely to make it on the DS4 as well.
