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.

Top-of-the-range La Premiere trim gets all the bells and whistles; you get everything that Rivoli trim brings, as well as a 360-degree rear-view camera, electronically adjustable heated and ventilated front seats with massage and memory functions, acoustically insulated windows, blind spot detection, heated and auto-dimming door mirrors and a special brown leather interior.
The engineSee full engine specs
The 1.6 E-Tense Plug-in Hybrid is the one to have if you’re a company car driver aiming to keep benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax payments low. With 221bhp, the E-Tense feels especially brisk, going from 0-60mph in 7.7sec, which is almost one second faster than the BMW 1 Series 118i M Sport. On top of the extra pace, the E-Tense also boasts an official electric-only range of 38miles (although, we’d take that with a pinch of salt) and low CO2 emissions.
