2015 Citroen DS4 Gets New Engines, Including a 180 HP 2-Liter Diesel

We've never been fans of Citroen's DS4 "premium car", especially since the car doesn't look all that different to a regular C4 and it comes with a couple of major build flaws. However, the French didn't give up on their quirky crossover-hatch and just announced three new engines will be made available.

The first of them is actually a powertrain package called THP 165 S&S EAT6 and it combines a familiar 1.6-liter turbo with the six-speed automatic gearbox developed by Aisin for the 308. Nothing major here, but that's because the DS4 also received a PureTech 130 S&S three-cylinder petrol last year.

Next up are the diesels, which are far more important. The first one is called BlueHDi S&S 150 and is essentially a 2-liter turbodiesel with stop-start tech and a 6-speed manual gearbox. At 150 hp, it has the exact same output as the Audi Q3 and VW Tigua or Golf. But, with 370 Nm (273 lb-ft) of torque, it's 20 to 70 Nm gutsier than all its rivals, Peugeot claims.

Finally, there's a new flagship model fitted with the same BlueHDi S&S 180 EAT6 powertrain as the Peugeot 308 GT warm hatch. It produces 180 PS of diesel pushing power and a meaty 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque.

Citroen says this new engine, which we recently tested in the Peugeot 508 facelift, sets new standards with an average consumption figure of 5.5 l/100km.

Without actually sharing any photos, Citroen says the cabin of the DS4 has also been improved in terms of style and ergonomics. Also new is a high-resolution 7-inch touch tablet simplifies use of the satnav system and other functionalities.
