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.
Servicing costs aren’t the cheapest around, but they’re not the worst either. However, if you look at the cost of maintenance items compared with the Citroën equivalents, you’ll notice a marked mark-up on DS parts.
