Citroen will bring the DSX concept to Shanghai Auto Show (21 -  29 April) this year to preview a possible posh SUV.

Based on the DS5 platform, the DSX is likely to arrive in production form in early 2014 at first in China and then in Europe before the end of the year. The car will be 4.70 meters long and could be offered with gasoline and diesel engines, as well as in a diesel-electric hybrid variant.

In the AWD model, the electric motor will drive the rear wheels while the conventional engine will power the front wheels. Non-hybrid variants will not be available with an AWD system, according to AutoBild.de.

The European version will be sold in a diesel-hybrid version featuring PSA's HDi 163 diesel with an electric motor. The diesel generates 163 HP (120 kW) while the electric motor offers an additional 37 HP (34 kW) for a total of 200 HP (147 kW), just like in the 3008 Hybrid4. In China, the DSX is expected to receive a 1.6-liter THP gasoline engine producing 243 HP (179 kW).

The starting price of the Citroen DSX in Europe is estimated at around 39,000 EUR.

it will end up like the rest of their production cars - boring and weird hatch back! the metropolis and gt concept was epics but nothing from those concepts came into their production line!

Good point about the Metropolis and GT concepts. They were brilliant. But I don't think their production cars are boring or weird. What I'd love to see is a new SM, but I don't think that will happen anytime soon.

It's a lot of money for a 1.6 liter engine...

179kW is not far off the power output of many 3 litre (naturally aspirated) engines.
