DS 4 Hatchback (2015 - )

The DS 4 offers plenty of individuality compared with its ubiquitous premium hatchback rivals, thanks to its styling and its rarity. However, with a disappointing driving experience, poor practicality and patchy quality, it offers very little else.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The dense, soft-touch dashboard is nice enough, but considering the DS4 is marketed – and priced – as a luxurious, prestige product, you might feel a little short-changed by the interior. Some of the other plastics on display aren’t quite so high in quality and some of the switches feel a little flimsy. The optional ‘watch-strap’ quilted leather upholstery does admittedly pep things up quite a bit, but if you want it, you’ll pay handsomely. Although the layout of the dashboard is pretty simple and clutter-free, the ergonomics could be better, too: most of the car’s functions are controlled through the central touch-screen, and it’s not the most intuitive system you’ll ever use. To make matters worse, short bases on the front seats and limited steering adjustment could impact on your comfort, while the over-the-shoulder visibility is rather limited.
