Citroen introduced the new DS 4 for winter testsFebruary 19, 2020
In these spy shots, we see the first evidence of the emergence of a new model between the DS 3 Crossback and DS 7 Crossback.
The DS portfolio with two models does not cover all segments of the automotive market, and the third model can make little difference. However, this does not mean that an addition to the assortment cannot be beneficial for Citroen.
In 2010, Citroen added to its global DS 4 lineup, a hatchback based on the Citroën C4, which, like the other DSs of the 2015 model year, was simply sold under the DS brand. Then the hatchback, simply named DS 4, with a change of name received a raised version. The pair held out until 2018, and soon after that DS almost disappeared.
At the same time, the DS 3 was replaced by the DS 3 Crossback, and a decent SUV was produced under the DS 7 Crossback brand, but the DS range has not yet expanded. A third model will be added soon, and photo spies managed to remove a completely new “4” during the tests.
The hatchback in these photos is fanatically hidden behind the stickers, but the shape and location of the backlight both in front and behind leaves no doubt: this is a DS. The size and general shape of the car suggest that we are faced with a completely new DS 4. The edges of the wheel arch have no relief, and the bumper, although glued, looks rather arbitrary. Do not be surprised if Citroen also releases this newcomer Crossback variant with plastic wheel arch rims and roof rails. A more adventurous version will probably also be slightly higher.
On the technical side, this new “Frenchman” most likely shares his “stuffing” with the new generation Peugeot 308 and Opel Astra. A plug-in hybrid and an electric version of E-Tense are also expected.
