The DS 4’s sculpted interior helps give it a real premium feel, making it a good – if pricey – alternative to the usual family SUVs. However, the disappointing gearbox, so-so performance and poor rear space mean that it still can’t quite stand up to a lot of its rivals, including the Audi Q3 and Cupra Formentor.

Cross Rivoli builds on the Cross Trocadero trim by adding a black leather interior, matrix LED headlights, semi-autonomous driving, adaptive cruise control, rear cross traffic alert and dark tinted rear windows.

The most powerful petrol engine, the 1.6 PureTech 225, produces a total of 220bhp and sprints from 0-60mph in 7.9sec, according to official figures. That’s more than enough pace to easily get you to motorway speeds, even with the slight hesitation that it tends to have as you pull off. The eight-speed automatic gearbox is quick to change gear and is impressively smooth as it swaps through the gears.
