    Shanghai 2013: Citroen DS Wild Rubis Concept

    APRIL 10, 2013
    Carscoops

    We're going to assume that it won't be long before Citroen releases preliminary or perhaps even full details on the all-new DS Wild Rubis concept car as the French carmaker had told us that it would do so on Thursday, April 11, but for now, you can feast your eyes on eight, high-resolution images of the study that were leaked online.

    What we do know for sure about the Wild Rubis is that it will receive its global premiere at the Auto China 2013 in Shanghai next week.

    It's good to see that Citroen still poses no threat to American car design.
    The earth stays on its axis. Citroen's are still ugly.

    Looks like a Nissan Murano/Infiniti FX with some weird angles thrown in.

    I actually like it and am certain it will do very well if offered in the U.S. A very premium looking crossover in a segment that doesnt offer much distinction in the design department.

    Why bother tivo'ing "Honeybooboo" when one can soak in the impeccable taste and sophistication of mainstream America right here on GMI.... ?

    How silly of those Citroën designers to design a car that's not as beautiful as a Camaro... or a Viper....

    Nothing "wild" about this Lexus RX knockoff.

    What happened to Peugeot/Citroën's unique, expressive styling here?

    Re: Shanghai 2013: Citroen DS Wild Rubis Concept

    I do not necessairly like it and I agree it's not very Citroen or DS, but I see a few Citroen traits here:

    1. The horizontal sill line with a kink, as seen in the C4 and the C9 concept, which I hope will become a Citroen fixture
    2. The light proportions of the vehicle remind me of the Mehari and the Matra Rancho. I do hope in the era of bloatedness and zero ground clearance in purportedly "off-road" vehicles, Citroen will surprise us all with a light and nimble SUV down the line

    PSA is a bit like "two steps forward / one step back" those days, they seem to have shiploads of brilliance but saddle it all with poor execution and a baffling strategy. I do hope this will work out well for them, as they are surely an admirable automaker and with every generation, their products get even better vs. the market.

    I don't get the "ugly" comments. The front is over-done (and yes, there's no DS in it), but other than that, it seems perfectly decent and elegant.

    I guess it is the DS-version of the C4 Aircross or C-Crosser.
    Based on the Mitsubishi it does limit styling...
