Billed as a featherweight, all-terrain buggy, the Dacia Manifesto concept showcases several new technologies (but no doors, windows or windscreen).
With four-wheel drive, large wheels and a raised stance, the Manifesto is also completely waterproof and is constructed from lightweight, sustainable materials.
It’s similar in size to the Ariel Nomad, and Dacia says it’s a statement of intent – a technical showcase that the Romanian firm has called a “lab for ideas”. Work on the model began only in January, but it will be the star of its line-up in Paris.
DS 3 facelift
Changes to the DS 3 aren’t likely to be extensive, but it’s still expected to be an important car in Europe and especially in the firm’s home country of France.
Paris seems like the best place for DS to showcase its stylish SUV, which will feature new design tweaks such as slimmer headlights, updated daytime-running lights and a general nip and tuck to bring the model more in line with the larger DS 7.
The Jeep Avenger could be the firm’s biggest launch in years. Based on a new version of Stellantis’s ECMP platform also used for the new Vauxhall Mokka and DS 3, the all-electric baby SUV is the smallest car it has ever produced.
