2016 Citroen Ds3 Review
Since the launch of DS 3 in 2010, 390,000 customers have succumbed to the charms of this hip and stylish Parisian supermini

From London to Tokyo and Sydney to Buenos Aires, DS 3 has become a true automotive icon that is renowned for its distinctive personality, unique styling, driving pleasure and leading-edge technology

Both DS 3 and DS 3 Cabrio have always offered drivers the best possible blend of comfort and dynamism.New DS 3 and DS 3 Cabrio – unveiled today – are even more attractive, with new design features (revised front end and personalisation possibilities) and enhanced functionality (connectivity, driving assistance systems)

For top-level performance, both in the city and out on the open road, the DS brand’s versatile new models can be specified with the latest PureTech 130 three-cylinder turbo petrol engine and offer the latest-generation EAT6 automatic gearbox with the PureTech 110 petrol engine

New DS 3 and DS 3 Cabrio will also be available in Performance specification, boasting an impressive 208hp (153kW).Avant-garde design: from the new front end to the personalisation optionsDS 3 has always embodied avant-garde design and was the first DS to feature the highly expressive “DS LED Vision” light signature

Now it also boasts the DS Automobiles front end with “DS Wings” that are sculpted around a vertically-oriented grille that proudly wears the DS emblem

Surrounded in chrome to underscore its elegance, the grille extends towards the LED headlamps and fog lamps via two chromed-finished wings

The new front end perfectly complements the styling of the car, with the double wings making their debut on a DS model

After all, it is entirely natural for the first-ever modern day DS, and a DS brand icon, to lead the way

The DS design team has retained much of the car’s original look, including the floating roof, two-tone body/roof colours and the shark fins on the sides, which are so emblematic of the DS 3’s personality.New DS 3 is more unique than ever in terms of personalisation possibilities, including options for the roof, body, rear view mirror housings, dashboard and gear knob

Customers can now choose from 78 body/roof colour combinations and four fabric roofs for the DS 3 Cabrio.Unrivalled lighting quality with DS LED Vision headlights
