The latest DS6 model was officially launched in Tehran on Sunday.  Arian Motor Taban, the legal representative of France’s DS cars in Iran, had organized the inaugural ceremony.  Company representatives have said the car is only currently available for leasing. They have also said that when the car will be available for sale, it will be priced at 2,140,000,000 rials ($61,000), more than double its foreign price, the local automotive website Asre Khodro reported. The DS6 is a compact SUV powered by a four-cylinder 1.6-liter (1598 cc) gasoline engine that produces 200 PS (147 kW; 197 bhp) at 5800 rpm. It is claimed to accelerate from 0–100 km in 8.4 seconds. This model is expected to compete with the BMW x1 and Audi Q3. To sell Citroen’s premium DS brand of vehicles, Arian Motors opened a showroom in January in the northern Tehran district on Andarzgou Boulevard.
