|Following a global premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the updated Citroen DS 4 and DS 4 Crossback now become available for sale in the U.K.|
Sporting signature DS Automobiles design features, such as the ‘DS Wings’ front end, new DS branding, new personalization options, new trim levels and the latest Euro 6 engines, the DS 4 and DS 4 Crossback offer more choice for customers to adapt their car to suit their personality and lifestyle. At the same time, the DS 4 line-up now gains a major new feature as the first DS to offer Apple CarPlay.
With its flowing lines, touches of chrome and high-performance engines, the DS 4 has all the qualities of a premium hatchback. Personalization and greater customer choice is provided by the two-tone roof/body color option, which is new to this segment. The Crossback, on the other hand, is an eminently versatile car. Its go-anywhere stance is reflected in its higher ride height and its large black wheels, as well as its wheel arch trims and roof bars, amongst other additional features. One of the major highlights of both DS4s include a new front end with ‘DS Wings’ grille design and LED Vision headlights. The headlights combine three LED modules with a Xenon directional module and new LED scrolling directional indicators. These headlamps are key to the identity of the front end and deliver a crisp, powerful light beam. In total there are 84 LEDs at the front of the car.
Black trim on the DS 4 Crossback and body-colored trim with chrome inserts on the DS 4 hatchback enables easy visual differentiation between the two vehicles. Viewed from the side, both versions feature a chrome ‘belt’ running around the dark-tinted side windows with a tautly drawn roofline ending in a spoiler. The compact, muscular rear styling maintains its refined, distinctive design.
Inside, the refinements included for both versions are; door panels upholstered in Nappa leather, semi-aniline leather upholstery with the signature ‘watch strap’ design, and the available DS Connect Box (SOS & Assistance pack, Monitoring pack, Mapping pack and Tracking pack).
The Citroen DS 4 and DS 4 Crossback are offered with six refined and efficient engines in total, including the award-winning 3-cylinder turbo petrol PureTech 130. A new high-performance THP 210 petrol engine is exclusively available in the DS 4m but not for the Crossback version. Three efficient Euro 6 BlueHDi diesel engines are also specified, including a BlueHDi 180 with up to 50Nm more torque. The DS4 line-up starts at a price of 19,495 pounds, whereas the Crossback version goes from 21,745 pounds.
