2022 DS 4: Price and Specs Revealed

Say hello to the all-new DS 4, an all-new premium sedan aimed at taking on models like the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Priced at £ 25,350, DS Automobiles has revealed full details of trim levels and specs ahead of deliveries starting later this year. Here’s what you need to know.

DS4 exterior

The DS4 features a truly striking design from the outside, with the overall appearance being more akin to an SUV than an outright hatchback sedan. There is a set of sharp headlights up front, combined with a huge honeycomb grille that incorporates the license plate and a large DS badge.

Stylized lights run into the bumper, with a pair of slashes in the bumper giving the car a distinctive face. On the side, you will find the rear windows merging into the C-pillar and meeting a curved rear end.

At the rear, a set of diamond-effect taillights really help the DS4 stand out, while a set of large alloy rims will be present regardless of which trim you choose. There are a multitude of chrome or blackened accents, depending on the derivative as well.

Interior and DS4 technology

How is it going inside? Well, the DS4 has a digital cockpit that aims to create complete calm inside. You have access to two screens on the center console, both with different functions. The lower screen controls the upper touchscreen, while the second uses DS Iris, a system designed to mirror your phone’s functions. Practice.

It should be noted that the DS4 is not completely buttonless like the new VW Golf. There are a series of physical buttons under the top touch screen to control the heating and ventilation such as: defrost, demist, recirculation, quick start on / off.

Through its materials, with different types of leather, Alcantara, forged carbon, wood and new upholstery techniques, the interior of DS 4 combines refinement and technology.

The use of technology has not been harmed. The DS4 features Level 2 semi-autonomous driving, a heads-up display that shows everything you need to see for complete safety and comfort, and Active Scan suspension. This feature sweeps the road ahead and ensures that the suspension is modified to be firmer or softer between 5m and 25m.

It goes without saying that the launch model – DS4 LA PREMIERE – will feature all of the features mentioned above.

DS4 trim levels and packs

Three trim levels are available: DS 4, DS 4 Cross and DS 4 Performance Line. There is also currently a La Premiere launch edition model of the car, while the entry-level variant and the Cross model can be ordered with different equipment packs (Bastille +, Trocadero and Rivoli).

The standard DS 4 in Bastille + trim features 17-inch alloy rims, rear parking sensors, rearview camera, 10-inch infotainment system and a 7-inch digital driver display. The Trocadero adds 19-inch alloy rims, chrome exterior trim and improved upholstery. Satellite navigation and voice control are also standard from this level.

DS 4 Rivoli adds a different set of 19-inch alloy rims, LED headlights, leather upholstery and a smart cruise control system that allows the car to accelerate, steer and brake, making it grants level 2 autonomous driving capability.

As you might have guessed, going for the DS 4 Cross variant adds a range of features that give the car a more rugged appeal. There is a new set of bigger bumpers, skid plates and roof racks as standard. The Performance Line + adds the intelligent cruise control system, styling tweaks and a better infotainment system – essentially, it includes the same features as the Trocadero pack.


DS4 transmissions

The all-new DS 4 is available with a petrol, diesel and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) powertrain, with the DS 4 E-TENSE capable of traveling up to 50 km fully electric on a single charge.

A 180 hp turbocharged 4-cylinder engine is mated to a 110 hp electric motor and e-EAT8 gearbox, for a combined output of 225 hp. It is powered by a more efficient battery with new, more compact and higher capacity cells located behind the deformable beam and providing a range of over 30 miles in zero emission mode (WLTP combined cycle).

This plug-in hybrid is the powertrain that will appear under THE PREMIERE. However, the PureTech 130, 180 and 225 hp petrol versions and a 130 hp BlueHDi Diesel version will also be offered on other versions.


DS4 release date
