Default Citroen 'DS4' High Rider revealed

Quote:
Citroenís new DS High Rider crossover concept will give the firm a rival to the Nissan Juke and Mini Countryman when it enters production as the DS4.

The three-door, four-seater High Rider, set to be launched at next monthís Geneva motor show, will gain another two doors for production.

It uses the new Citroen C4ís platform, itself due to be launched later this year, and is taller and wider than the current C4 hatch at 1480mm and 1820mm, although it is slightly shorter than the current C4 at 4260mm.
However, the styling is much more radical than the C4ís, drawing influence from both the smaller DS3 and the C-SportLounge concept from 2005.

Much of the High Riderís front-end styling is borrowed from its smaller DS3 sibling, including the grille, headlights, bonnet sculpting and badging, all of which should carry over to the DS4 production car. More radical design features, such as its fog lights, 19-inch alloys and fabric roof, are unlikely to feature.

The DS4ís Engines are likely to be borrowed from the next C4 range and a version of the conceptís diesel-hybrid powertrain should also make production. The electric motor sits on the rear axle, providing extra power and torque to the rear wheels under certain driving conditions. The diesel engine drives the front wheels ensuring the car is four-wheel drive.

The DS4 will be further removed to the C4 than the DS3 is to the C3 and its origins are less obvious than the DS3ís. It will be pitched as a more refined and luxurious model within the C4 range, which includes hatchback and Picasso models, rather than the DS3ís billing as a sporty, more dynamic version of the C3.

The DS4 is scheduled to go on sale early next year, before a C5-based DS5 arrives later in 2011.

The kind of mediocrity that should be expected of Citroen.

It could not have made this Citroen any worse, but what stands most out is that it does not stand out. It is a victim of borrowed ideas.

I think it just refers to it being a 2 door hatch design on a crossover stance.

Default CitroŽn DS4 revealed

Quote:
Citroen will break new ground at the Paris show with the DS4, a lofty but sporty-looking five-door aimed at shaking up the bread-and-butter family hatch market.
The DS4 is the second model in CitroŽnís new DS range, after the highly successful DS3, and is a platform variant of the new C4, also at Paris. CitroŽn is hoping it will sprinkle some DS3 magic on the bigger hatch.
See all the official pics of the new Citroen DS4
Compared with the Focus-sized C4, the DS4 is 60mm shorter, 40mm taller and 20mm wider. This makes for a taller driving position with better visibility and a squatter footprint for more stable handling.
With this theme in mind, the DS4 features a panoramic windscreen that is said to give the driver an upward view of 45 degrees. ďCombined with the slightly raised stance, this provides optimised visibility for the driver,Ē says CitroŽn.
Although a tall driving position is usually associated with functionality, the DS4 is clothed in an upmarket-looking skin, the work of chief stylist Marc Pinson.
Read more on the Citroen DS4's development
CitroŽn describes the styling as ďcompact and muscularĒ, the sportiness coming from a pronounced styling bulge over each rear wheel arch, the short rear overhang and steeply raked rear hatch.
Despite this sharp styling, CitroŽn says the cabin will seat five. To enhance the sporty look, the rear door handles are hidden in the window surround, just as with the Alfa Romeo Giulietta.
The engine range is extensive, with five Euro 5 units ó HDi 110 and HDi 160 diesels and VTi 120, THP 155 and THP 200 petrol units. The THP 200 will top the range, with 197bhp and 203lb ft from its turbo 1.6, as well as 149g/km of CO2.
Read more on the Citroen DS High Rider concept, including video from the Geneva motor show
A micro-hybrid based on the HDi 110 engine will feature stop-start and a smart alternator able to recover energy during braking.
All engines will be available with either manual or robotised manual ESG íboxes. The micro-hybrid will feature revised gear ratios for the best fuel economy.
UK sales will kick off in autumn next year and prices are likely to be at a premium over the C4ís. But as with DS3 buyers, DS4 customers are also expected to add a high number of options.
