Performance, Ride, Handling

Under the bonnet, the DS4 THP 200 Manual is powered by the same PSA/BMW 1.6-litre turbocharged engine found in the 155bhp semi-automatic variant. The engine also finds itself in another French model, Peugeot’s 308 GTi, delivering the same 200bhp with 275Nm of torque.

The difference then, between the THP 155 and THP 200 variants lies in the state of tune which gives the latter, the supposedly ‘sport’ variant, 45bhp and 35Nm more that the EGS (Electronic Gear Box) variant.  Performance then, is significantly better in the Manual, which clocks the 0-100km/h century sprint in 8.5 seconds with a top speed of 235km/h.

While one may consider these figures academic given the driving conditions in Singapore, the benefit of having a manual gearbox cannot be understated in the DS4. For one thing, the stick-shift offers smoothness in transmission that is the semi-automatic EGS version lacks. Shifts are precise with short throws needed to engage gears. Compared to the EGS’s seemingly slow responses in low gear, the manual shifts afford a degree of control and ‘feel’ that keen drivers will appreciate. Shifting action is also easy to get used to, allowing quick precise shifts to be made at crucial moments—such reversing to complete a U-turn at a busy junction.


While the larger 19-inch rims allow bumps and imperfections on the road to be keenly felt, the DS4’s ride quality remains first-rate, firm at low speeds that softens up more at speed. A nicely weighted steering also adds a nice feel to the accurate steering that responds to every input. Body roll is also kept to a minimum when cornering thanks to the car’s hydraulic dampers.
