What used DS DS 4 hatchback will I get for my budget?
Prices for the DS 4 start at just below £9000 for a 2015 or 2016 example with a 1.6-litre diesel engine and slightly above-average mileage. A 1.2-litre turbo petrol with fewer miles under its belt will be a little bit expensive, at around £9500.
If you need the bigger diesel engine, you’ll need to increase your budget to at least £10,000. A 4 with the 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine is rare on the used market and can command as much as £14,000.

How much does it cost to run a DS DS 4 hatchback?
Fuel costs for the DS 4 should be reasonably low. The most efficient engine is the 1.6-litre diesel, with an NEDC combined fuel economy figure of 72.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 103g/km. Both 2.0-litre diesel units are remarkably economical: the 148bhp variant gets 67.3mpg and 111g/km, while the 178bhp gets 64.2mpg and 115g/km.
The 1.2-litre turbo petrol is fairly parsimonious, at 56.5mpg and 116g/km, while the 207bhp 1.6-litre turbo petrol will be the most costly to run at 47.9mpg and 138g/km. Anyone needing a petrol automatic will need the 163bhp 1.6-litre turbo unit that should be good for 50.4mpg and 130g/km.
Road fund prices vary depending upon CO2 emissions of vehicles registered before 1 April 2017; anything younger than that will be charged under the current flat rate fee of £145 per year.
