From 1971, the roof was the same colour as the body.

In 1972, recessed door handles were fitted to all D series cars.

Reversing lamps were fitted as standard to the D Super and the D Spécial acquired a new 98 bhp engine while the D Super had its power increased to 108 bhp.  Both cars were fitted with a higher final drive.


In 1973,power steering and chromed door handles and window winders became standard on the D Super.

A new model, the D Super 5 was launched, fitted with the 2 175 cm3 engine from the DS21 together with a five speed gearbox. 

The D Super lost its five speed gearbox option.

In January 1975, the D Super 5 was discontinued and the D Spécial and D Super went out of production in June of that year.
