Performance

The standard model will feature a front wheel drive which can affect its stability. Its 19 inch stock wheels offer decent grip but the car should not be pushed to its limits.

Just like with most SUVs, cornering at high speeds can affect stability. However, due to the fact that it has a lower stance, the downforce should give it enough stability.

In terms of raw power, the model comes with two options but the lack of an all-wheel drive mode make it an exclusive city car.

Exterior

The exterior of the DS 6WR is predominated by fluid lines with narrow headlights that touch the front grille and reach to the sides. The front bumper was fitted with a discreet black skirt with chrome elements that extends to the sides.

The rear has a prominent bumper while the tail lights have been placed a bit higher, giving it a more aggressive look.

Interior

Interior details have not been released yet, the DS 6WR is a luxury SUV which should reflect over the interior as well.
