Intended to give customers an up-scale offering in the small car segment, Citroen describes the DS4 as "an alluring mixture of premium design cues and a bold approach to automotive styling."ť The DS4 was also designed as a driver's car, ensuring the four-door hatch will be just as fun to drive as it is stylish.
The DS4's exterior design is highlighted by a coupe-like silhouette, but Citroen says the hatch still offers enough rear-seat room for three passengers. Other DS4 styling cues include LED running lights, wider wheel arches and 19-inch wheels.
Inside, the DS4 offers a panoramic windshield, a choice of five leather combinations and - on top-level DS4 models - leather-trimmed dash and door panels. No matter the configuration, the DS4 features a decidedly sporty dashboard and a premium look not normally found in a mid-range brand like Citroen.
Five engines will be on offer in the DS4, including two diesel units and three gas engines. The range-topping mill will be a 200 horsepower version of Citroen's 1.6L engine. All engines will be backed by either a six-speed manual or EGS transmission.
DS4s go on sale later this year across Europe.
