Above it, the lengthy bonnet offers motion to make the silhouette seem dynamic.

The profile combines fluidity and sharp strains. The flush becoming door handles go together with sculpted surfaces on the perimeters. The ratio of the bodywork to the massive diameter wheels (together with a 20-inch providing with aero inserts) comes from the DS AERO SPORT LOUNGE idea, showing an enforcing and specific presence.

At the rear, the roof stretches down very low on a steeply sloping rear window with an teeth display screen print, an outside demonstration of a recognized understanding. The silhouette is as elegant as it's far aerodynamically green.

The indoors of DS four has been conceived with merged zones: a touch region for consolation and an interactive region for the one-of-a-kind interfaces. The -tone remedy for the window controls has been designed to enhance cognitive recognition.

Through its substances, with one-of-a-kind styles of leather-based, Alcantara®, solid carbon, timber and new upholstery techniques, the indoors of DS four blends refinement with era.

A new trim offers an progressive which means to nicely-being. Particular interest has been paid to the cooled and massaging seats' form. The idea is stimulated via way of means of a shell, developing a brand new consolation region made of a unmarried element, curved and with out a break. New upholstery covers this with excessive density foam to attain a degree of first-rate consolation. The stretched seat and the shell form supply unparalleled intensity for an progressive layout.

In a -tone indoors, the seats in Pebble Grey grain leather-based are joined via way of means of clean factors, easy to touch for consolation zones, supported via way of means of grain leather-based and Clous de Paris guilloche.

The control of air getting into the automobile is optimised via way of means of the addition of a filtration device which could purify the air internal in only some minutes. The exceptional of the air is recorded and displayed at the important display screen.

Augmented era

Based on a large evolution of the EMP2 platform with 70% new or exceptional elements, DS four is providing plug-in hybrid era from its launch (225 horsepower and greater than 50 kilometres of variety in 0 emissions mode at the blended WLTP cycle). A new era infotainment device, driving force help structures but to be visible withinside the Premium C phase and an progressive facts projection device make DS four stand out.

E-TENSE electrification

Always modular allowing it to house one-of-a-kind sorts of powertrain, additionally usually dynamic and safe, this new edition of the EMP2 platform changed into evolved for DS four.

It has enabled many beneficial functions to be stepped forward, whilst lending the layout a brand new freedom of expression that offers a form with unparalleled proportions.


The structure has been evolved to attain the preferred proportions and aerodynamic performance. The frame/wheel ratio it is specific to the phase and the arena of top rate automobiles creates a silhouette it is straight away athletic and green with, notably, a brand new bonnet, reducing the bonnet-wing mixture and the ground in row 2...

Weight reduction

The new evolution of the EMP2 platform introduces new additives crafted from composite substances, hot-pressed structural elements and greater compact factors together with the aircon unit, liberating up greater garage area elsewhere. There is 430 litres of boot area with hands-unfastened commencing and a powered tailgate.

Using an optical illusion, statistics is displayed 4 metres in advance of the windscreen diagonally following the driving force's stare upon 21-inches, by no means witnessed earlier than withinside the phase. Essential facts together with velocity, driving force aids, navigation, caution messages or maybe the music they are taking note of or the decision they are taking can be projected onto the street.

This sensory and experiential era is a part of a much broader providing, on the coronary heart of a totally re-imagined 10-inch infotainment device, DS IRIS SYSTEM.

For DS four, operation is stepped forward with 3 new functions: semi-computerized overtaking, velocity adjustment for corners and predicted velocity tips from signposts.

The guidance wheel functions a grip sensor that usually assessments if the driving force is energetic due to the fact they must usually be in manipulate.

The new "Radar Corners" allow different capabilities together with lengthy-distance blind spot monitoring (with a variety of 75m) and rear visitors caution to keep away from a collision with a risk withinside the blind spot.

DS Automobiles is likewise approximately the idea of dynamic serenity. With DS four, it interprets into magnificence main ride. One of the robust factors is the DS ACTIVE SCAN SUSPENSION managed damping, exceptional to the phase via way of means of the usage of a digital digicam. This is located on the pinnacle of the windscreen, perspectives and anticipates irregularities in the street floor and transmits the statistics to a computer. With the 4 mindset sensors and 3 accelerometers, the device controls every of the wheels independently. Using the facts it receives, it makes the suspension more difficult or softer relying on what is required. The end result is heightened consolation regardless of the nation of the street.

DS NIGHT VISION: some other era that permits DS Automobiles to face out from the competition. The device makes the street and its dangers greater visible. An infrared digital digicam, positioned withinside the grille, spots pedestrians and animals as much as 2 hundred metres away at night time and in terrible mild. The driving force sees the street's dangers of their virtual device show (and as warnings withinside the DS EXTENDED HEAD-UP DISPLAY) allowing them to react.

The out of doors Matrix Beam module illuminates for riding, cut up into fifteen segments which switch on and rancid independently, relying at the riding situations it senses.

These projector headlamps adapt to visitors situations, guidance wheel attitude, velocity and climate situations with 5 pre-set modes: city, country, motorway, terrible climate and fog. They allow you to power continuously on most important beam with out ever amazing different avenue users. Using the digital digicam positioned withinside the pinnacle a part of the windscreen, those wise headlamps adapt their mild beam robotically with a variety of three hundred metres, relying on visitors situations, with out ever amazing others.

The DS MATRIX LED VISION headlamps are complemented via way of means of new prolonged sunlight hours walking lighting made of ninety eight LEDs. As nicely because the recognisable vertical mild signature, those sunlight hours walking lighting carry out a brand new excessive-era welcome routine.


DS four is manufactured from 95% reusable substances and 85% recyclable elements. 30% of its weight is from renewable or recycled substances, divided among metals and polymers.
