The Citroen DS4 has arrived locally, providing a car that combines the space and convenience of a tall body car with the expected ease of access of a five door car.

The carís distinctive styling blends dramatic lines with versatile hatchback functionality, together with a raised-stance.

The DS4ís striking profile portrays unique styling efforts.†Its lines are enhanced by a chrome-finished waistline and dark tinted windows.†Sculpted wheel arches emphasise the stylish alloys. The taut roofline and rear spoiler add extra prowess.

The DS4 belies its versatile 5-door lay out.†Three full-size rear seats are accessed via rear doors with handles encased in the carís extended window frames. When open, these rear doors reveal their angular shape as a unique design touch.

The interior exudes a sense innovation and finesse through careful attention to detail.†From the acoustics to the cabin materials, the DS4 projects an air of confidence and sophistication. In the†DS4 DSport version, the drilled aluminium pedals, embossed door handles and a choice of two leather combinations completes the atmosphere.

A large panoramic windscreen offers enhanced occupant visibility and illuminates the driver-focused cockpit, providing a bright and welcoming environment.

Keeping form and function in perfect harmony, the DS4 boasts compact exterior dimensions - 4.27m (length), 1.81m (width) and 1.53m (height) - for versatility and day-to-day functionality.

There is room to seat five adults with generous head, leg and shoulder room throughout. The boot measures in at 359 litres.

In keeping with CitroŽnís focus on ĎCrťative Technologieí, the interior is home to a range of storage solutions for maximum convenience. The cabin design includes a raised centre console (available on models fitted with the EGS gearbox) with a cooled, illuminated and protected compartment that holds up to four 500ml bottles and houses a connectivity area with a USB port and a 12-volt socket.

The DS4ís cabin boasts innovation for ultimate user confidence and travelling comfort. Additional touches such as massaging front seats with electric lumbar adjustment further personalise the cabin.
