The Citroen DS4, which was named as the ‘Most Beautiful Car of the Year’ at the Auto Bild 2011 Design Award, features a unique style with consummately worked lines and a sculptural and curvaceous body.
The car’s raised suspension, concealed rear doors, stretched lines and a sculpted silhouette portray a distinctive architecture that is guaranteed to turn heads.
The DS4 is powered by a 1.6-litre twin-scroll turbo high pressure engine that produces 163hp and 240Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
