DS 4 Wins Most Beautiful Car of 2022

DS Automobiles has been awarded its seventh trophy from the last eight Festival Automobile Internationals.

The 37th Festival Automobile International jury has awarded the title of Most Beautiful Car of 2022 to DS 4.

Designed by the DS Design Studio Paris, DS 4 stands out with its incredible proportions and remarkably imposing presence, as much on the outside as on the inside.

This Most Beautiful Car of the Year prize is the seventh trophy awarded to DS Automobiles during the last eight Festival Automobile Internationals.

DS 4 embodies the new generation of DS Automobiles designs. As refined as it is high tech, the car combines charismatic exterior design with the purity and flow of its interior look, characterised by multiple ‘handmade’ features.

Thierry Metroz, DS Automobiles Design Director, said: “This Most Beautiful Car of the Year prize is a reward for the women and men who have shaped DS 4, way beyond the team at DS Design Studio Paris. 

“Before even drawing the first pencil line, we worked with our engineers for two years to model the technical platform. When we started the creative process, our room for manoeuvre for rolling out a new concept was remarkable. 

“Inspired by the DS Aero Sport Lounge concept, also recognised last year by the Festival Automobile International, DS 4’s shape is unique in the segment with hitherto unseen proportions. The line is athletic, very muscular, compact and sat on very large wheels. It turns out to be aerodynamic, efficient, and charismatic all at once.”
