The DS 4S, the new five-door, features the company’s ‘DS Wings’ front grille, and LED headlamps.
The more upright styling of the DS 4S sets it apart from the similarly-sized and recently updated DS 4 and DS 4 Crossback twins which are set for an Australian launch.
The DS 4S will be offered with a choice of three petrol engines, 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbo with an undisclosed power output of between 81-96kW, and a pair of 1.8-litre four-cylinder turbos, rated at 100kW and 152kW, all engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The interior follows design themes set by others from the DS range, with the same watch-strap leather seats, flat bottomed steering wheel, and three-window instrument cluster.
DS claims the rear seat offers “record-setting” rear legroom in its segment, and features a more compact rear suspension setup to allow the rear seat to be positioned to allow more headroom.
Like the larger DS 5LS sedan, the DS 4S won’t be offered outside of China. Instead DS will offer the DS 4 and DS 4 Crossback in international markets, including Australia.
