The Citroën DS4 and DS5 will be offered in "sophisticated" Pure Pearl editions
17 September 2012

Two limited edition Citroëns will premiere at the Paris motor show later this month. 

The Citroën DS4 and DS5 Pure Pearl models are offered in pearlescent white with chrome detailing and 18-inch alloy wheels. Each model has “watchstrap-style club leather upholstery” with blue stitching.

Pure Pearl edition models come with eMyWay navigation, xenon directional headlights, front and rear parking sensors and Citroen’s eTouch system to alert emergency services in the event of a collision.

The DS4 Pure Pearl is powered exclusively by an HDi 160 diesel engine mated to an automatic gearbox; the first time this configuration has been available in the DS4.

Citroen has no plans to launch the Pure Pearl editions in the UK, but they will go on sale in a number of European markets, including France, early next year.

Our Verdict


The DS 4 is a high-riding hatchback, but for all its maker's claims to the contrary, its too much like the standard C4

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
