French automaker Citroen is planning for the future with inspiration from the past. Images of the Citroen DS3 leaked onto the Internet earlier this month; the official unveiling is scheduled for the Geneva auto show in March. The DS3 is set to be a Mini Cooper rival. The car offers a European design with a splash of retro 1970s. It's scheduled to be released in 2010 as the smallest in the new line. The midsize DS4 will be released in 2011 as will a luxury model, the DS5.
This video of the DS3 popped up in YouTube. Although the 1 minute and 10 second clip doesn't show any of the car's performance, but it is cute compact to add to the wish list.
