Introduction, Exterior

When Citroen wanted to move its models upmarket two years ago, they decided to create the DS sub-brand and the DS4 is Citroen’s answer to transforming the humble C4 into a luxury competitor.

Launched in Singapore a year ago, the DS4 now has a heart transplant option of replacing its petrol engine with a diesel one. The big question here is if the change of heart has turned the DS4 into more of a docile economy car or a grunting urban explorer. Enter centre stage the DS4 e-HDi.

 

Exterior

The DS4 design focus group must have had a group of very vocal and obstinate proponents of every automotive design available with each pushing to influence the final design of the car.

“Coupe! Saloon! Hatchback! Crossover!” Chants probably inundated the air in the room. And then something happened. Someone from the design team probably silenced everyone, pointed at the door, and curtly told everyone to go home.

Said designer must have then popped over his or her best vintage wine, took a large gulp and drew the DS4 that you see here.

We have check others and no doubt this is the best! From the prompt and reliable agent Angie to the honest dealer David, everything is 10/10. Other platform not only charges transactions fee the dealer will squeeze you below market rate.
