DS 4S: new compact with China in the spotlight


At this point, that PSA has a lot of interest in China is not news. Taking this into account, it’s not strange to view models designed and developed exclusively for the chinese market, which never will come to Europe. In DS, the brand name ‘premium’ Model, we found several examples of this, as the sedan DS 5LS or the crossover DS 6WR.

Soon will join a new model to this list: DS 4S has been presented in Hall of Guangzhou 2015. Designed in France, the DS 4S will be manufactured in Shenzen and marketed in China. Under his body of the compact five-door we find the modular platform EMP2, the same on which rests the current Peugeot 308.

however, the design of the DS 4S is relatively different from the european models of the brand, and very similar to the DS “chinese”. This gets noticed in the style of your headlights -with LED technology-LED, or a chrome grille that is entered in those same headlights, details that remind us unceremoniously to the aforementioned DS 5LS.


The inside of the DS 4S impacts visually thanks to the trim integral leather-red, which includes not only their seats but also a horizontal band on your dashboard, the central console and the door armrest. Neither lacking to the appointment of the most innovative multimedia systems from the manufacturer, with touch screen and broad connectivity.

The range mechanics of the DS 4S shall be composed of three petrol engines: a 1.2 PureTech turbo three-cylinder and two 1.8 THP, with 136 HP or 204 HP. May be combined with manual switch or with automatic gearbox EAT6 six relationships. The DS 4S will be on sale in China starting from the early months of 2016, and, unless major surprise we don’t expect its launch in Europe.
