Are There Any Peugeot, Citroen or DS Cars Worth Buying in 2017?

There was some significant news recently relating to Groupe PSA, which is known as the company that oversees the design, manufacturing and distribution of the Peugeot, Citroen or DS brands across the globe.

More specifically, the group signed Inchape as a new distributor in Australia as it takes proactive steps towards accessing new market and boosting flagging sales figures.

It is hoped that this will promote the brands more effectively while also increasing the number of new models sold, particularly as reputable used dealerships such as Robins & Day continue to grow at an incredible rate.

Are There Any New Models on the Horizon That Should Excite Us?

With this in mind, the question that remains is whether the revival of these car brands will bear in any fruits in 2017, and if there are any cars due for release that should excite us in 2017? The answer will vary depending on your needs, but those of you who like to travel cross-country and across diverse terrain such as the Yorkshire Dales and the Peak District are likely to be extremely interested in the new DS Crossovers. While the regeneration of DS as a luxury brand has so far failed to deliver obvious rewards, the new Crossover models are the first of an exciting breed of vehicles designed to recapture a viable market share.

At the heart of this are the new models' advanced design, with each one of the three cars boasting improved suspension clearance (ideal for cross-country travel), superior performance and greater fuel efficiency. In fact, all of these features lend themselves to longer journey's across diverse types of terrain, and this respect they are sure to capture a clearly-defined target market. The new, mid- size DS X is likely to be particularly popular, as it will borrow heavily from the parts bin of the popular Peugeot 3008.

At the end of this year, we will also see the launch of the smaller, DS W. Interestingly, this will be twinned with the Peugeot 2008 Mk2 and the Citroen AirCross, which boast similar suspension technology and provide viable and variable options depending on your budget and preferences.

The Last Word

The vehicles we have discussed here offer plenty of choice to you, while they certainly create some strong focus in terms of what you want from a car. The advanced suspension technology in the latest DS models is a compelling selling point, however, particularly for those who like to traverse the great outdoors safely, securely and in comfort.
