The DS 4’s sculpted interior helps give it a real premium feel, making it a good – if pricey –alternative to the usual family car suspects. However, a disappointing ride and handling balance, together with so-so performance means that it can’t quite stand up to the likes of the Audi A3 or BMW 1 Series.

Despite being the entry-level trim, Bastille + comes with an impressive amount of standard equipment. That includes 17in alloy wheels, a 7.0in digital instrument display, a 10in touchscreen infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto smartphone mirroring, Bluetooth, DAB radio, a leather steering wheel, LED headlights, rear-parking sensors and a rear-view camera.

We've yet to try the 129bhp 1.2-litre PureTech 130 engine. As with all other versions, it comes with an eight-speed automatic gearbox which is impressively smooth as it switches through the gears.
