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.

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 engineSee full engine specs
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.
