The aim with DS4 was to make a luxury object. We took inspiration from leatherwork, from haute couture, jewellery and clock making. When you get inside, you really get a feeling of class, a sense of style. This car is a really unique object – you haven’t seen anything like it before. I think every designer deserves the chance to work on a project like DS4.

The design is very precise. Almost chiseled and plays with the light. The light slides over it. And in the matt parts, it’s absorbed. It’s about finding the colour in complete harmony with the interior. When I open the door of DS4 the thing I’m most proud of is the refinement and luxury which is very present. When I got out on the street I thought, ‘Yep, this car is going to turn heads’. I think that was the idea, you know? I can really see myself driving it.

At project inception customers told us they wanted a different kind of car. The object has to be refined, each detail carefully worked. We invented new mixes for the suspension. New approaches to springing and damping. The road is at your fingertips. You feel like you dominate the road. You feel like you’re sitting high up, and protected by the body-hugging seats.

It’s true that DS4 is different, not something you’ve seen before. When you get into DS4 you get the real measure of all this refinement. I’m looking at the road, and I’m also looking into the door mirror just to see the side of the car. You have the power of a coupé, exceptional body lines that make you want to take the wheel. And at the same time, we placed the emphasis on rear space, which is exceptional.
