The Citroën DS4 is only the second model in the specially styled DS line to be released, and has already been voted “Most Beautiful Car of the Year by over 60,000 online users in 62 countries.
Frédéric Banzet, Managing Director of Citroën, accepted the award at the 26th International Automobile Festival on the 27th of January.
In addition to such wide recognition from the general public via the web, a jury of industry leaders in the fields of design, sport, culture and the media itself, awarded the Citroën the “Most Beautiful Interior” prize at the same festival.
Of all the French car companies Citroën almost always pushes the creative envelope further when it comes automotive avant-garde and does so without the need to ever compromise on practicality.
The DS4, like the DS3 is a great looking little hatch and should provide a keen competitor for the MINI Cooper line-up. Its distinctive side profile with chrome detailing around the dark tinted windows and aggressive wheel arches, which accentuate the large wheels, is what differentiates the DS4 from the more average small car offerings.
Inside, it’s the same story with premium leather sports seats, sculptured dashboard and a panoramic windshield moving back into a dark roof liner.
CarAdvice will confirm details about the DS4 with Citroën’s Australian distributor in due course.
