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.
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!
I have done 13,000 miles since buying new in the UK, it is the 200bhp with 19" wheels and would agree with most reviews that not the the best choice for UK roads, but as most of my driving is on the continent have found the car superb. The build quality is superb and everything is standard, love the back massage on journeys, and blind spot monitor in Europe a must, but if you are a UK customer go for the smaller wheels not low profile, other than that a great car.
