Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The DS 9 benchmarks against mid-size premium saloons such as the BMW 5 Series, Jaguar XF and Lexus ES. That means a starting price around the £40,000 mark, which isn’t cheap. Many may scoff at the idea of paying so much for a French saloon, without the premium badge legacy of, say, Mercedes-Benz or Audi. However, DS is aware of the uphill battle it faces, and so has filled its base cars with a generous level of comfort features and space.

Furthermore, go for the plug-in hybrid version (E-Tense), and you could find yourself doing the majority of your weekly journeys on electric power alone, topping it up on a charge at a cheap off-peak tariff overnight at home. That’s unless you do a lot of motorway work, which eats charge in the blink of an eye. The E-Tense version also makes sense for fleet drivers given it carries a Benefit In Kind rate of 11 per cent (the petrol version attracts a 35 per cent rate), an official fuel consumption figure of 177mpg and 33g/km of CO2, keeping ownership costs down.

There’s also an E-Save button, which reserves battery charge for zero-emissions driving in city centres, thus ducking any emissions-based charges that may apply or be on the horizon where you live.

Best of all there’s now an owner’s app which gives you access to all the DS models on a subscription basis. This means if you fancy an SUV or hatch for the weekend you can have one.
