The CitroŽn DS3

Named Top Gearís ďCar of the YearĒ in 2010, the CitroŽn DS3 is a quality vehicle which stands out on the road with poise and elegance.


Highly practical, yet still with a dynamic appeal, the CitroŽn is an all-round top class car with stunning features, a range of powerful engines, and innovative technology.

The exterior of the CitroŽn DS3 can be configured in an amazing 34 ways, with an extensive choice of 11 body colours and nine roof graphics, to enable you to create a personalised look to the body of your new car. LED lights draw out the character of the DS3 and the slim line windscreen pillars emphasise the spacious interior and allow light in to enhance the cabin. Though externally compact, the raised dash increases legroom, adding to the level of comfort which is established by the body-hugging seats and luxury materials. Speed, revs and fuel consumption are all displayed logically and, along with the low driving position, work to create a relaxed and effortless environment in which to drive.

A choice of three engines is available with the DS3, to provide you with a powerful and responsive drive. The single petrol engine, the VTI 120, comes with a five-speed manual gearbox, can reach a maximum speed of 108mph and speeds from 0-62 in 14.2 seconds. This engine also produces only 104g/km of CO2 emissions. In terms of diesel engines, the DS3 offers a choice of two; the EHDI 90, which can reach a maximum speed of 113mph, hit 0-62 in a speedy 12.5 seconds and produces 98g/km of CO2, or the EHDI 110. This final engine produces the best acceleration and speed, with the ability to reach a top speed of 118mph, and go from 0-62 in an impressive 9.7 seconds, yet it produces only 99g/km of CO2. With either diesel engine, drivers have a choice between a five or six-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed automatic.

A five-star EuroNCAP safety rating shows the CitroŽn DS3 to be a safe and secure vehicle. Six airbags, high performance brakes, an Electronic Stability Programme and ISOFIX anchorage points ensure the safety of the driver, passengers and vehicle in even the most difficult of situations. In-car technology improves the experience of the drive too, with a CD/MP3 player and six speakers throughout the vehicle, as well as Bluetooth hands-free and on-board computer as standard throughout all models, plus the option of rear parking sensors and a USB dock.
