Citroen DS4 to get eTouch telematics and blind spot monitoring

Citroën has released first details for the new DS4, which is the second model in Citroën’s distinctively-styled DS line.

DS4 will be revealed at the 2010 Paris Motor Show and is expected to go on sale later in 2011.

Beyond its distinctive styling and dynamic performance, DS4’s cabin overflows with ‘Créative Technologie’. Features available include an advanced audio system with processing software for effective soundscaping, delivering high quality, authentic sound evenly throughout the cabin.

DS4 is also equipped with a range of safety-enhancing technologies:

The Citroën eTouch Assistance System automatically or manually makes emergency or assistance calls, using a built-in SIM card, for rapid intervention in the event of an accident or if the car is immobilised.

A blind-spot monitoring system – based on the same technology as reversing parking sensors – the four ultrasound sensors alert the driver if a vehicle is in their blind spot ( an area stretching to around 5m behind the rear bumper and 3.5m from each side of the car). The driver is alerted by means of a pictogram displayed in the wing mirrors.

Programmable cruise control with speed limiter also allows drivers to pre-set cruising and top speeds for added safety and convenience on the open road.
