DS Automobiles has unveiled its latest exclusive offering for customers in China at the 2016 Beijing Motor Show – the new DS 4S premium hatchback. This car represents the brand’s latest offensive in the Chinese compact car segment, hoping that the France-designed, China-built DS 4S would kick off a strong sales momentum.
The 2016 Beijing Motor Show serves as the perfect venue for DS Automobiles to unveil the new DS 4S, which should further demonstrates the refinement, comfort and dynamism typical of DS branded vehicles. It completes the brand’s range currently available in China, which already includes the DS 5 hatchback, the DS 5 LS three-box saloon and the DS 6 SUV – allowing it to fulfil the expectations of Chinese drivers.
Moreover, DS Automobiles wants to use the 2016 Beijing Motor Show as a venue to underscore its strong commitment to the Formula E Championship, displaying the DSV-01 electric single-seater raced by the DS Virgin Racing team. The DS 4S on display at the 2016 Beijing Motor Show will be wrapped in Dark Fire red body paint along with DS 6, DS 5LS, and a DS 5 finished in an exclusive Matt Gold paint.
DS Automobiles’ stand at the show will also feature an original DS 21 cloaked in a splendid tone of red, symbolizing the brand's heritage and approach to avant-garde design. The new DS 4S will be gifted with 'DS Wings' grille and the DS LED Vision headlights.
At launch, the new DS 4S will be wrapped in the same color as the display at the show -- Dark Fire red. It will be powered by any of the available petrol engines with power output ranging from 136hp to 204hp, all mated to the latest-generation EAT6 automatic transmission.

In addition, high-grade leather wraps the dashboard and door panels 'watchstrap-style' upholstery features on the seats of the DS 4S. The interior’s red leather further boosts its sense of refinement and attention to detail, both of which are attributes of French-style luxury and DS Automobiles.
