    My car

    Do not believe any of the whatcar review, i have owned 3 DS4'S, THE 2.0HDI dsport 160BHP, 1.6 dstyle hdi115 and dstyle E-HDI 1.6. and although the dsport (on the 19inch low profiles) ride is harsh over potholes the ride on the 18inch rims is smooth and silky, never had a problem in 3 years, the stop/start system is good, economy is excellent, engine is sublime even build quality is very good and feels solid, the only thing that lets it down is the small legroom in the rear due to shape of back doors and coupe style but you know this when you buy one...the shape draws you in and looks well on the road, lots of kit and all quality...brilliant motor all round.

    My car

    Where to start with this car, had it for 14 months now and done 22,000 miles in it and although nothing mechanically up with it I absolutely hate it. Cant wait for the lease to be up next year. The ride quality is appalling on UK roads it crashes and is noisy if you drive over bumps you have to wrestle with the steering wheel to keep it in line. Long journeys in it are very tiresome as you constantly have to manoeuvre the steering wheel to keep it in check and I end up with arm ache after long journeys. To be fair driving the car abroad which I do from time to time the ride does improve on smooth French motorways. The seats are not really supportive either and the back massager is pretty lousy. Standard equipment in the car to be fair is pretty good however no DAB radio at the time of purchasing was available which was rather odd. The last couple of months as the ride is so crashy there are now a number of creaks and rattles within the cabin. Boot space is quite good and the engine itself is quite well powered however the official 55mpg is way out of line averaged 45 at best and I don't hammer it. Would I recommend this car to anyone in a word no unless you like the ride quality of a car owned by Fred Flintstone.

    Owning a Skoda Yeti which was due for a change was going to be a hard act to follow Don’t believe the road test on this car it is comfortable on 18 inch wheels better than a Countryman on 16 inch. Loads of power for so little revs and on the motor way 70mph is only 2000rpm.It has a bigger boot than a Focus. On a recent 25 mile A road journey I managed 60mpg. If you want a practical car that is individual and has a bit of style this is the one for you.

    My car

    Having run a Citroen from new for 30,000+ miles it has been fault free, never let me down once and delivered 48+mpg. It's put my previous experience with VW/Honda in the shade. It was time to change and I fell for the charms of the DS4. You really feel a strong sense of joy in owning this car. It has a real quality feel, masses of equipment, a wonderfully well crafted interior and strong diesel engines. I have the 2.0HDI and it flies with amazing economy of over 50+mpg on long runs. This car really makes me smile and is one of those cars you keep finding yourself turning back to look at in the car park. At first this car was not on my possible list. I had seen one at launch in a corner of a showroom and it just felt too dark....why oh why was there not a full panoramic roof? Then by chance I sat in one (this time in a bright showroom by a window) and realised that it was Ok, in fact the bigger windscreen was fine and made for a cooler place in the sun than if a big panoramic roof was fitted! I was also worried about the ride comfort of the 19 inch wheels, but as a previous Honda Civic owner the ride is far better than the Civic, with smaller wheels it must be amazing! I thought I might swop but the 19 inch alloys just look so good! You don’t see many DS4s around which is great as you get a real sense of exclusivity. I get many admiring looks and lots of positive comments. Perhaps its taste but this is a car that delivers style, pace and economy while not following the herd!
