DS has introduced a new ‘Performance Line’
Ooh. Does this mean they’re offering a brand new range of cars with more power, more torque and more, um, performance?
Not exactly. The ‘DS Performance Line’ is a new trim level which will be available to customers from 1 October onwards. DS are indeed offering a broad range of “refined and efficient engines”, although most of the announcement included information about different colours and quality leather.
All of their cars can be specced with a selection of palettes (seven on the DS 3, six on the DS 4 and five on the DS 5) together with a contrasting black roof. Large gloss black alloys will feature the DS logo set against a red background to “add exclusivity” and the manufacturer’s signature colours of Carmine Red, White and Gold will be found on key components like the mirrors and the rear spoiler.
According to DS’s Éric Apode: “The ‘DS Performance Line’ offers all the fundamental ingredients of a Grand Tourer, namely style and driving pleasure.”
