Citroën DS4

The Citroën DS4 is the second model in the new premium (luxury vehicle) sub-brand DS created by Citroën to run alongside its mainstream cars. Based upon the Citroën C4 II, but with more dramatic styling and chrome and leather used outside and inside respectively.

The petrol engines that power the DS4 are a product of a collaboration between PSA and BMW. All are 1,598 cc four-cylinder, 16-valve units. The base VTi 120 is normally aspirated and puts out 120 hp (89 kW). As its name implies it comes with variable valve timing.
The next engine up is the THP 155, essentially a turbo-charged version of the VTi. It puts out 156 hp (116 kW) thanks to a twin-scroll turbocharger and dual overhead cams. It is mated to a 6-speed
manual transmission. The most powerful gas engine available in the DS4 is the THP 200. It's a variation of the THP 155 previously mentioned but pushed to 200 hp (149 kW).
On the diesel side of things the DS4 has two engines available. The first is the HDi 110, a 1,560 cc four-cylinder that puts out 112 hp (84 kW). The second is the four-cylinder HDi 160 that has already proven itself in the Citroën C5 sedan. It has a displacement of 1,997 cc and puts out 163 hp (122 kW).
The DS4 is available with Start&Stop technology and Citroën says that the battery has been optimized to withstand up to 600,000 starting cycles.
The DS4's styling has been very well received by the international press. It was elected “Most Beautiful Car of the Year” at the International Automobile Festival, beating BMW’s new 5-series and Honda’s CRZ hybrid. As if that wasn’t enough, German magazine Auto Bild and its partner magazines throughout Europe have just given it 1st Prize for Design in its category in their Design Award contest
