Two new Citroen DS4’s are to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show this month, a hatchback and crossover.
Having sold more than 115,000 examples worldwide since its launch in 2011, DS 4 is gaining new impetus with the arrival of two complementary versions: New DS 4 is a dynamic and elegant hatchback for customers seeking sleek styling and driving pleasure, whilst the New DS 4 Crossback – a new version in the range – is a car with ‘go-anywhere’ looks and a higher driving position.
A total of 115,000 DS4s have been sold worldwide since its launch in 2011. And crossover vehicles now make up 30% of the premium compact hatchback market.
"DS embodies the spirit of avant-garde,” said Yves Bonnefont, chief executive of DS Automobiles.
“In the case of new DS 4, the brand's spirit is expressed through an offering made up of two body styles: a new premium hatchback and an unprecedented new offer: DS 4 Crossback, with elegant go-anywhere style. With such complementary vehicles, the DS brand is clearly stating its ambition, and its ability, to meet customer expectations."
Personalisation and greater customer choice in the new DS4 is provided by the two-tone roof/body colour option, which is new to this segment.
The new DS4 Crossback has a higher ride height, large black wheels, as well as its wheel arch trims and roof bars, amongst other additional features.
Each model has a new front end, new DS LED ‘vision’ headlamps, connectivity including CarPlay® and engines with CO2 emissions of between 100g/km and 138g/km (UK specification).
Refinements include door panels upholstered in Nappa leather and semi-aniline leather upholstery with the signature ‘watch strap’ design that is exclusive to DS Automobiles.
These two new versions of DS4 will be on sale in the UK from November.
