The DS 3 is a three-door hatchback from DS, and represents the ideal entry into the world of upmarket superminis. Fun to drive and cheap to run, the DS 3 offers an abundance of style, inside and out. Available with a fine range of standard equipment, the DS 3 comes in a variety of trim levels, from Chic to Ultra Prestige.
The elegant and compact DS 3 sports a bold front-end that is distinguished by a large radiator grille and expansive headlights. Lightweight and durable 16-inch black diamond-cut alloy wheels, satin chrome door sill protectors, a chrome exhaust pipe and chrome door handles and side rubbing plates are among many eye-catching exterior elements. The vehicle also features power-adjustable door mirrors and 3D LED tail lights
A five-person cabin offers a rake-and-reach-adjustable steering wheel and a height-adjustable driver’s seat, enabling you to enjoy optimal comfort. The driving position is high, allowing good visibility, while rear seats provide room for adults to appreciate a relaxed travelling experience. Standard with Chic grades is interior mood lighting, a gloss-black gear knob, power-assisted steering and air-conditioning. A 285-litre boot (74 litres more than is offered by a Mini) can be expanded to a 980-litre capacity
A choice of 81bhp and 108bhp petrol engines is available with Chic trims. The latter, a 1.2-litre unit, produces 205Nm of torque and returns up to 62.8mpg and 104g/km of CO2. Alternatively, a 1.6-litre 100bhp diesel option returns as much as 83.1mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 87g/km. Both come with five-speed manual transmission.
Safety and technology
A seven-inch touchscreen provides access to the vehicle’s infotainment systems. Included are six loudspeakers and RDS and DAB radio, with audio controls located on the steering wheel for ease of use. Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity are featured too.
The DS 3 comes with a five-star rating from Euro NCAP. Safety features include Electronic Stability Control, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, Cruise Control with Speed Limiter, multiple airbags, ISOFIX mounting points and seatbelt pre-tensioners.
An alarm and remote central locking with deadlocks are included to help ensure the vehicle’s security.
