We designed Metropolis to show how a luxury executive DS could look… Like nothing else on the road
Proving just how far DS goes to seek inspiration, Metropolis was created by our international design team in Shanghai, China. It shows how elements of DS styling such as the taut lines, powerful curves and muscular haunches can be applied to an executive saloon. The chrome used around the side windows – now a signature on our production models – elongates the shape to give it a sleeker more powerful appearance.
The streamlined super saloon
Even in the dark the LED lights ensure Metropolis stands out. At the rear they’ve been designed into an eye-catching boomerang shape. From the side it’s a saloon, but a sophisticated, elegant and sporty one.
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
At DS we consider ourselves pioneers. Metropolis has a futuristic petrol-electric plug-in hybrid drive train producing a maximum 466hp. It also sits on advanced suspension
The original DS was famous for its ability to smooth out the roughest road. Metropolis uses our renowned Hydractive suspension to provide a cosseting ride and make the car more windcheating at speed.
VISION OF THE FUTURE
The electric motor’s output is 96hp. The 2.0-litre petrol engine produces 275hp via a seven-speed transmission
