Citroen describes the DS4 as “a unique and attractive blend of creativity, dynamism, exclusivity and versatility”. Inside, the Citroen’s designers spiffed up the cabin with higher-class materials and decorative trim than the standard C4 hatch, while also offering more personalization options such as a choice of five leather combinations, including two-tone colors.
The new Citroen measures 4.27 metres long, 1.81 metres wide and 1.53 metres high, making it shorter, wider and taller than the regular C4. It features a 370-litre boot capacity, which is 38 liters less than the C4s.
The Citroen DS4 will come with a choice of five engines. There are two diesels, a 110HP 1.6-liter HDi that can be specified with stop/start tech and regenerative braking technology, and a 160HP 2.0-liter HDi. The petrol line-up consists of three 1.6-liter engines that were co-developed with the German BMW and include a naturally aspirated version with 120HP, and two turbocharged variants with 155HP and 200HP.
All units are available with manual or robotized EGS six-speed gearboxes.
The new Citroen DS4 will go on sale in Europe in 2011.
