Citroen DS3 Concept Revives DS Badge and Previews MINI Cooper Rival

The first photos of Citroen's DS3 Concept that will be physically revealed at the Geneva Motor Show have been leaked into the internet before the French automaker had the chance to make an official announcement. The DS3 that appears to be a MINI Cooper and Alfa Romeo MiTo rival, previews a forthcoming production version which will be the first of a new series of premium cars that Citroen is planning to introduce in the near future. As its name suggests, the DS3 revives Citroen's DS badge and it will be followed by a Golf-sized DS4 compact model and a C5-(mid)-sized DS5 luxury car.

However, judging by these photos, we see nothing in common with the legendary and seductively shaped Citroen DS that was produced between 1955 and 1975. There's no official information as we speak, but it appears that the DS3 is most likely heavily related to the recently introduced C3 Picasso MPV. We'll have more on the DS3 Concept once Citroen makes an official announcement in the next 24 hours.
