Citroën has introduced the spectacular Divine DS concept at the Paris Motor Show this week.

One of the most exciting cars exhibited at the show is without any doubt the Divine DS concept which although does not preview a production model, it "represents a vision of the DS brand." Speaking of DS, it's now a standalone brand and starting next year all models will lose the "Citroën" name.

Getting back to the Divine DS, the compact hatchback featuring scissor doors and a futuristic design both inside and out. The vehicle is 4.21 meters long, 1.98 meters wide, 1.35 meters tall and comes equipped with 20-inch rims that have an interesting floating spoke design.

Step inside the cabin and there’s a big 10.4-inch touchscreen display from where the driver controls just about all functions and also uses the digital rearview mirror. The slim seats are wrapped around in full-grain aniline leather and come with DS' traditional watch strap design.

Motivation comes from a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine delivering 270 HP and a maximum torque of 330 Nm. Details about the concept’s performances have not been disclosed but Citroën says it has CO2 emissions of 145 g/km.
