2015 Citroen DS4 Facelift Also Boasts With Upgraded Engines

On sale since late 2010, the Citroen DS4 is the posher sibling of the Citroen C4. The DS3 may be nippier and lovable, while the DS5 abounds with specialness, but the DS4 is right in the middle, combining the best of both worlds. What does the facelift bring new?

Glad you asked. Slated to hit dealerships early next year, the 2015 Citroen DS4 will still be marketed as a Citroen, despite the fact the DS sub-brand will open approximately 50 dedicated showrooms in Europe by the end of 2015. If you’re having a hard time finding any other visual changes except for the revamped headlights and taillights, it’s OK!

Exterior differences between the original and the facelifted DS4 were kept to a minimum to be frank. As for the interior, that’s been rejuvenated by PSA Peugeot-Citroen designer that’s apparently fond of the 1960s and 1970s minimalist art movement.

Moving on to the oily bits, the DS4 facelift comes with a revised range of three and four-pot engines

If fuel economy is what you’re looking for, the 1.6 BlueHDi 120 BVM6 is the model for you. With 120 horsepower and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) on tap, as well as standard start&stop, this engine will drink little fuel in any given driving scenario.

More specifically, Citroen promises an impressive 3.7 l/100 km combined (76 UK mpg) fuel consumption and 97 grams of CO2 per kilometer if the car’s fitted with 16-inch wheels. If petrol power is more to your liking, the 1.2 PureTech 130 S&S BVM6 three-cylinder mill is replacing the old VTi 120.

Don’t dare laugh at its displacement or number of cylinders though. It may be the size of a pipette, but this engine has 130 horsepower and 230 Nm (169 lb-ft) of torque, coupled to a combined fuel economy of 5 liters per 100 km and only 115 grams of CO2 produced per kilometer driven.

But wait, the 2015 Citroen DS4 benefits from a few other add-ons!

One of them is an all-new, two-tone exterior paint finish, no less than three colors for the roof, while another new asset is the addition of some safety features. These are mobility services coming in the form of the DS Connect Box and the SOS & Assistance package. Sometime next year, the Frenchies will introduce the Mapping and Tracking packs, which do exactly what you have imagined them to do.
