The stylish DS4 adopts diesel tech for better efficiency.

We are at the dawn of an era: The rise of diesel cars. The sheer number of diesel cars we have sampled lately, perhaps, is a good hint of the trend.

And no, we are not complaining. They add more flavours to our local motoring climate, which is one good reason why local motorists (and car fanatics alike) should cheer.

The initial 1.6 THP EGS variant which we have tested last year has been phased out. In replacement are not one, but three guises - a THP 155 with fully automatic transmission; an up-tuned THP 200 with stick shift; and this - the e-HDi 115 diesel.

After the Citroen C4, the DS4 is the second diesel model from the French automaker to be offered in Singapore. Sharing similar mechanical setup and similar e-HDi 115 engine, their relation may be too close for comfort, especially when the DS4 is asking an $18,000 premium over the former.

Keener eyes will not help to tell the petrol and diesel variants apart - the two are identical. 

The DS4's novelty may seem to have worn off slightly over time, especially with the prettier DS5 stealing the limelight. 

Still, the hatchback should have no problem turning heads. Few other cars in the market exhibit this extent of flair in their sheet metal. And despite having numerous crisp folds at its rump, the DS4 manages to pull off a contemporary look without feeling too complex.
