Many stylistic elements are based on Wild Rubis Concept, which we saw last year, with the production of the DS X7 being just around the corner, with the car being sold exclusively in the Chinese market and even in some Asian countries but not in Europe. It is produced in Shenzhen, a new plant is part of the joint venture between PSA (Citroen) and the Changan Automobile Group, the big crossover will “marry power with finesse”. It shares the same platform as the DS5 and DS 5LS, which are already produced in the aforementioned plant, while having similar dimensions as the Volkswagen Touareg.
