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.
With this twofold offering, DS Automobiles is addressing the expectations of customers in the premium compact vehicle segment, which has seen some important changes in recent years. Crossover vehicles now make up 30% of the premium compact hatchback market.
“DS embodies the spirit of avant-garde. 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.” – Yves Bonnefont, CEO, DS Automobiles.
With its flowing lines, touches of chrome and high-performance engines, New DS 4 has all the qualities of a premium hatchback. Personalisation and greater customer choice is provided by the two-tone roof/body colour option, which is new to this segment. With its luxurious, refined and even more customisable interior, New DS 4 will represent a unique offering in the premium compact segment.
New DS 4 Crossback 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.
New DS 4 and DS 4 Crossback perfectly embody the character of all DS vehicles. Their strong identity is underlined by a new front end – proudly sporting the ‘DS Wings’ grille design – plus new DS LED Vision headlamps, the latest technology with advanced connectivity including Apple CarPlay™ and high-performance engines with CO2 emissions of between 100g/km and 138g/km. Refined features include door panels upholstered in Nappa leather and semi-aniline leather upholstery with the signature ‘watch strap’ design that is exclusive to DS Automobiles.
