With the celebratory bells of success of the DS3 still ringing in the ears of the hierarchy at Citroen, the French manufacturer has decided to continue the DS theme and followed up with the introduction of the DS4. Based on the C4 hatch, the Citroen DS4 is the more premium version of the French firm’s more sedate hatchback.

Running costs

The top model for fuel economy is going to be the 161bhp 2.0-litre diesel as it will return 55.4mpg on average. Overall costs, such as insurance and servicing, should be inexpensive and keep Citroen DS4 running costs down to an affordable level. The DS4 does suffer more than most of its rivals in terms of depreciation. This isn’t helped by the deals often on offer from the manufacturer.
