    Looks quite different IMO. Reminds me of a Lexus ES from a few angles.

    No reason why that can't translate to Chrysler.

    LOL


    You look at the wrong 508.

    Yes, DS9 is very similar to 508 L. They are so similar that they are sharing a lot of exterior body panels.

    If DS is trying to mimic someone with exterior design lines it's Audi.

    Do you even know what is Ali Express?

    It can mimic Audi all it wants. Here in the states it would make a nice Chrysler sedan.

    Once it's been re-engineered to accommodate a US-friendly engine, it'd be too expensive to sell.

    Ah, it does look much more similar to the 508L. I still like it better though because the front fascia looks much stronger. They are both nice looking cars.

    BTW, the one in your post above is a 508 too, not a 508L.

    Why does it need a new engine? Is it that underpowered, not everyone needs a Hemi.

    The next iteration of the Chrysler 200?

    To me it looks like all the others out there.

    How did that 1.4 liter four work out in the Dart? The gas motors in PSA products are that small. The diesel motors offered are the same size as the Tigersharks and GME fours. What transaxle does this DS9 use?

    IMO, we don't need another low slung sedan with "sportiness".

    Not underpowered. The FWD hybrid model has 250 horsepower while the up-level model with AWD has 360. Unless there's another reason that those engines wouldn't work in the US.

    I don't care for the roof line. I think Chrysler should have ease of entry into the rear passenger seat.

    Small displacement turbo engines. I know, and you know, that turbocharging is a reliable and proven technology, but American buyers consider small-displacement engines to be overworked and ultimately unreliable. Toyota sells turbos outside of the USA, but not inside - if Toyota can't convince the market, nobody can.

    Price point wouldn't work. That's for sure. We are talking about PHEV, not about HEV or upcoming P2 MHEV tech.

    In addition to this this car as any other PSA cars is not designed with US in mind. A lot of work is needed to make it US compliant.

    And only Made in China.:D

    Absolutely. Toyota is still selling 2.5 NA engine as the base one for Camry. AFAIK optional V6 accounts less than 5% of total sales.

    That Cpillar is not that raked for it to be a issue. It looks like it’s just as easy to get into than a Camry

    It’s ironic to be told that PSA has no cars suitable to the US market. Neither did Fiat 9 years ago, and the brand still doesn’t, really.

    Honda sold over 267,000 Accords last year with the choice of a 1.5T and a 2.0T. ;)
