DS break is the culmination of two years of research to offer customers a versatile vehicle that is practical for craftsmen. Lodgeable for families and keeping all the technical features of DS sedans. This 57 concept, very popular in the USA, was represented in France by Simca Marly break. In September 1958 several prototype DS break are ready. 2 of these prototypes will be presented at the 45th Motor Show in October 1958.
The design office still seems reluctant to many retail points. As of October 1958, customers could already control its break DS in 3 finishes "family, which will break later renamed" luxury "and commercial". Finishing "comfort" does not exist and "ambulance" version is not complete, the price is not defined yet. It is interesting to note that the delivery times were 6 months. Advertising stated: "Break The DS has the same power, the
same comfort, the same impeccable sliding and devourer on highways all DS. It also offers the same luxurious calm, the same comfort for passengers. Break the discomfort is absent, the space is large, comfortable chintz. Life is peaceful. » There were different interiors of breaks: - Commercial: front seat and folding rear seats releasing a low of 2 meters in length. - Luxury Break: front seat, folding rear seats and 2 jump seats staggered in the trunk. - Break comfort: 2 separate front seats, fixed rear seat (until 1963) and 2 folding seats staggered in the trunk. - Family Luxury and Comfort: front seat 3 places (rank 1), 3 folding seats (row 2) and fixed 2-seater bench (rank 3). The model presented is a Family finishing 1967, so with the green liquid. Only 391 copies were made that year in the finish, making it the rarest on 2700 manufactured. The body has been completely restored to its hue "Orient Blue" (AC 616) and its interior jersey red. The success of this model will last 16 years, when it will be replaced by the equally revolutionary CX break.
