and DS5. Citroën has found that the cars are especially popular among young, affluent buyers.

The flagship DS dealer is DS World on Nanjing Road in Shanghai, which is meant to show off the brand and French luxury goods.

Citroën will add two more Chinese-made DS models by the end of 2014 – a three-box sedan and SUV.
