New DS 4 draws on earlier concepts to create a striking form

DS4 hero

Big haunches, muscular styling and and a lounge-like interior – the DS 4 is the brand’s most resolved design to date

The new DS 4 has been revealed – a slick looking crossover that the company suggests is a ”new generation of avant-garde design”. 

A new light signature dominates the front end. The headlamps are slim and form three circles, while giant ‘L’ shaped daytime running lights (DLRs), each made up of 49 LEDs, frame the body work on either side. The grille is substantial, stretching up from the bumper to the very tip of the bonnet, and pushing out to the lamps. It features diamond-tip motifs in a 3D effect, giving the front end an injection of detail.
