Side windows are adorned with a chrome window trim, and rear side windows are fitted with dark-tinted glass. Body-coloured fixtures include door handles and (power-folding and heated) door mirrors. Among the vehicle’s standard illumination array are automatic and height-adjustable headlights, LED daytime running lights and cornering-assist front fog lamps.
A panoramic windscreen (with individual sunblinds) provides the driver with a clear view of the road ahead. Front-row occupants also benefit from height-adjustable seating. Other standard features include a leather steering wheel and gearshift knob, an automatic electronic parking brake, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and automatic dual-zone air-conditioning. Stowage provision includes an illuminated glovebox, seat-back pockets and a drawer located beneath the front passenger’s seat. The DS 4 possesses a minimum-capacity 385-litre boot.
A seven-inch colour touchscreen provides an engaging interface to a number of infotainment features. These include a six-speaker sound system (with DAB digital radio, RDS radio and a CD player), satellite navigation, MirrorLink and CarPlay smartphone integration and Bluetooth and USB connectivity. Audio controls are also steering wheel-mounted for ease of use.

A Thatcham Category 1 alarm, an engine immobiliser and remote central locking with deadlocks help to maintain the vehicle’s security.
