Citroen took the DS range upmarket when it re-launched the DS brand it in 2010 as special versions of existing models designed to give buyers a little something extra. The stylish DS4 hatchback offers a combination of style, practicality and a sportier driving experience than the C4 model on which it's based, with lots of luxuries thrown in for good measure. There are five engines to choose from – three petrol and two diesels – and the car has comfortable, high-riding suspension. Standard equipment levels are generous, accompanied by a series of sophisticated touches in the interior to maintain that premium feel. It comes in three specs – DSign, DStyle and DSport - with all models coming equipped with LED daytime running lights, alloy wheels, air-con, multifunction steering wheel and cruise control. It may not be as responsive to drive as rivals like the Volkswagen Golf and it is a little cramped inside (the fixed rear side windows not helping its family-car credibility either) but there's no denying its style helps its stand out against the likes of the BMW 1 Series and Audi A3 Sportback.
