I agree, I’ve ordered a 19MY DS, but will be ordering one of the 20MY ones when it’s time to change.

plastics throughout will be of a higher perceived quality than before.
Why would anyone in their right mind want old-fashioned "actual" quality when modern, higher perceived quality is available for everyone, even royalty ?

The interior plastics on the new Evoque are much higher quality. It all feels very solid inside and out 👍

Some interesting diagrams of the new Evoque/DS platform here further down the article...

No sign of the newer exhaust architecture, but it looks like space will be at an even bigger premium with additional components under the car and in the engine bay.

I take your humorous point, but the "actual quality" of the plastic relates to things like strength, damage resistance, temperature tolerance, colour fade resistance and so on. You can have top "actual quality" but super-cheap-looking plastics.

"Perceived quality" is a less measurable, more subjective thing - soft touch, surface appearance, edge and join treatments, that sort of thing.
