CITROňN DS4: ACT II OF THE DS LINE
second opus in the DS line, the CITROňN DS4 fully honours the
philosophy of the DS line, which brings motorists bold choices in terms
of style, sensations, architecture and refinement.
From the first
glance, the DS4 reveals the special features that make it unique, with
a raised body dominating the road and a panoramic windscreen for a
wider view of the world. The CITROňN DS4 expresses its exclusive nature
through the staging of chevrons on the radiator grille, the DS logo on
the hood and light guides visible day and night. Its refined and
powerful profile features chrome detailing surrounding dark-tinted side
windows, muscular wheel housings that highlight the large wheels – up
to 19 inches – and a tautly styled roof culminating in a contoured rear
spoiler for an extra dose of vitality. Like the exterior styling, the
interior conveys strength, energy and refinement. Arm-chair-style front
seats in a “watchband” design and full-grain leather, a contoured dash
with exceptional tactile quality, and a panoramic windscreen extending
back into a dark roof all reflect the CITROňN DS4’s strong personality.

aesthetes. Sporting matte plum body paint, the DS4 Purple is enhanced
with champagne-coloured chrome, brushed and unbrushed, and various
special finishes in the same tones on the headlamps, wheels and badges.
