Product Overview

DS 4 II is a compact hatchback in production from 2021. It is available with a range of inline-3 and inline-4 engines that displaced 1.2 to 1.6 liters.
Styling-wise, the Mk2 DS 4 is a giant leap forward, even though its underpinnings remains largely unchanged. More efficient drivetrains are added, too.
As such, the car still uses semi-independent rear suspensions. It makes for a somewhat compelling option for those who like the design but don't care about the drive.

Sentiment Score 65%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
DS is determined to cover every base. Trocadero, Rivoli and the range-topping La Première. All are surprisingly well equipped, featuring things like standard automatic transmissions, flush door handles and LED matrix headlights. There are also three body looks – a chrome-heavy standard offering just called DS, a DS Performance Line with sporty black wheels and a DS Cross.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Powerful electric motor
  • Decent interior
Cons
  • Pricier than rivals
  • No PHEV option

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
As a rival for established premium hatchbacks, the DS 4 is a welcome addition. It doesn't seek to copy its Teutonic rivals but, instead, offers an interesting alternative. It's a high-class hatch that drives well, feels genuinely high-quality inside, is fizzing with new tech and is competitively priced. Go for the hybrid if you can afford it; it's easily the best version.

Pros
  • Competitively priced
  • Cheap to drive
  • Excellent customer service
Cons
  • Lack of class-leading tech
  • Poor rear-seat legroom

Sentiment Score 54%
Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
With 108bhp the E-Tense's electric motor proves just about adequate in normal traffic with a range of up to 38 miles according to official figures. The steering's weight is agreeable enough and it's reasonably precise, yet even with the Active Scan adaptive suspension there's more body roll than the A3 and AMG Line versions of the non-PHEV A-Class. The digital driver's display is on the small side at 7.0in, but a big head up display is standard on posher trims.

Pros
  • Powerful petrol engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Fiddly rear suspension
  • Slightly fiddly to drive
