THE Citroen DS4 is a new class of car that com­bines the style of coupe, the space and con­ve­nience of a tall body car, ease of ac­cess of a five-door car and the pre­mium style, equip­ment and fea­tures of Citroen DS range of cars.

Citroen now has four dif­fer­ent mod­els in a mar­ket area in which it pre­vi­ously had just one body with a choice of three or five doors.

The DS4 sat­is­fies a broad range of cus­tomer needs and en­gages the driver at an emo­tional level, en­hanc­ing the ap­peal and “joie de vivre” of the mo­tor­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

DS4 is pow­ered by a range of three Euro 5 com­pli­ant en­gines, de­liv­er­ing re­fined per­for­mance with op­ti­mised fuel and CO2 ef­fi­ciency. There are two petrol en­gines with a choice of 115 or 147kw and the 82kw E-HDI is fit­ted as stan­dard with Citroen’s mi­cro hy­brid sys­tem.

One of the safest ve­hi­cles in its class, DS4 has been awarded a max­i­mum five-star Euro NCAP safety rat­ing with a 97 per cent score in the Safety As­sist cat­e­gory.
