Without denying the appeal of conventional coupes, the DS High Rider represents a vision of the future, combining compact dimensions with generous internal space, performance, sophisticated style and quality.

Unlike traditional four-seater coupes, the DS HIGH RIDER is compact and muscular. Its character is expressed with a sleek flowing windscreen that goes over the heads of front occupants – helping give the illusion of a bright and spacious cabin. The side windows connect the A-pillars to the sloping roofline of the rear.

The DS High Rider sports 19” wheels and its front end is purposeful with gaping air intakes, long sharp headlights and defined ridges along the hood.

The concept shows off some luxury its glossy golden paintwork and brushed chrome trim that accentuates the car’s lines. The roof is covered with a coated textile material.

The concept will also be environmentally friendly with an advanced hybrid diesel drivetrain. It combines a refined HDi DPFS engine with an electric motor located on the rear axle. The hybrid platform enables the car to combine the fuel efficiency and power of an HDi diesel engine with the ecological benefits of a new generation electric ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle). Under certain conditions, both engines combine to deliver additional power with more torque transmitted to the rear wheels.
