Model history

  • The Citroën DS, introduced in 1955, revolutionized the automotive industry with its avant-garde technology and futuristic design. Its predecessor, the Citroën Traction Avant, was a milestone, but the DS set new standards. The DS 21, launched in 1965, impressed with different engine variants, including four-cylinder and later also in-line six-cylinder engines. Engine displacements varied, but the DS 21 made a lasting impression with its advanced technologies and hydropneumatic suspension.
