2019 DS 3 Crossback design leaked, features funky design

The 2019 DS 3 Crossback has been leaked via a design patent, with the all-new small crossover set to take on the likes of the Audi Q2 and BMW X1.

The images appear to be that of a vehicle that’s ready for production. The front end features a large open-mouth grille with the DS logo sitting in the middle. Grey plastic flares around the wheel arches certainly give the Crossback model a rugged look, with the grey theme following along the sills and around the base of the bumper bars.

Fitted down the side of the front bumper on the edges are LED daytime running lights, which make their way down from the LED front lights. What’s interesting is the funky B-pillar design, which features a shark fin that sits above the doors where the back doors meet the front. The rear of the DS 3 features silm rear lights with chrome garnishing, dual exhaust outlets, and a small roof spoiler.

Taking a look inside the 2019 DS 3 Crossback reveals a jewelry-inspired, quirky design. The centre of the dash features what looks like lots of diamond and square shapes where some of the switchgear will live. There’s also a high-mounted touchscreen display, door cards which feature square holes where the speakers will go, and a flat-bottomed steering wheel.

The DS 3 Crossback will be underpinned by the Compact Modular Platform, which means it’s capable of featuring petrol and diesel three- and four-cylinder engines. The platform was also designed with electrification in mind, with an electric DS 3 Crossback due to arrive (in Europe) before 2020.

There are no details regarding pricing or specs for the Australian market as of yet. As soon as we have that information we will be sure to let you know. No doubt Aussie fans of the DS brand will be keen to see this new model in the flesh. Stay tuned.
