Citroën DS4 Voted Most Beautiful Car of the Year
Citroën Ds4 Voted Most Beautiful Car of the Year
The Citroën DS4, the second model in the DS line and which will arrive in New Zealand in the second half of 2011, has been voted “Most Beautiful Car of the Year” by more than 60,000 web users in 62 countries.
The award was presented to Frédéric Banzet, Managing Director of Citroën, at the official ceremony of the 26th International Automobile Festival on 27 January.
Alongside this recognition from the general public, a jury of personalities from the worlds of design, sports, culture and media, specially constituted for the Festival, awarded the DS4 the “Most Beautiful Interior” prize, distinguishing the quality and refinement of the Citroën DS4 and the DS line as a whole.

The Citroën DS4, revealed at the Paris Motor Show in October 2010, is yet further proof of the brand’s “Créative Technologie”. It fully honours the philosophy of the DS line with its bold stance on styling, driving sensations, architecture and sophistication.
The Citroën DS4 communicates its exclusive nature from the very first glance through the position of the chevrons on the grille and its distinctive light guides, visible day and night. The equally sophisticated profile features a chrome-finished waistline surrounding dark-tinted windows, muscular wheel arches that emphasise the large wheels – up to 19 inches – and a tautly-drawn roof culminating in a spoiler for an extra dose of vitality. It is no doubt this coherent whole and status that appealed to web voters.
Like the exterior styling, the interior of the Citroën DS4 exudes power, dynamism and refinement. The body-hugging front seats in “Bracelet” upholstery and finest quality leather, the sculpted dashboard with superior tactile quality and the panoramic windscreen extending backwards into a dark roof express the DS4’s strong personality and were applauded by the jury at the International Automobile Festival.
Delivering on the driving sensations promised by its styling, the raised, four-door coupé promises a unique road feel that makes travelling and movement irresistible.
