DS Automobiles is creating a new suspension setup that will be introduced in 2018 and be installed on future models.

Last year it was reported Citroen is working on a “revolutionary” suspension set to arrive in 2017 and now Autocar says the DS sister company is also preparing a new suspension. The system won’t be the same as the one developed by Citroen.

“On which car it is too early to say but we will be launching a specific suspension system, starting with the first models in 2018,” DS product and development boss Eric Apode announced at the launch of the refreshed DS3 in Paris.

DS promises the new suspension will keep the high standards of comfort of the hydropneumatic, self-levelling, and variable ground clearance technology pioneered on the original DS, although it will be focused on modern electronics and won’t feature hydropneumatic technologies. “We think now with the development of electronics, we can do it better,” Apode confirmed.

The final result should be ready in 2018 – a year after Citroen launches its new suspension. DS will start offering it with the next generation of models of the brand.
