Car reviews - Citroen - DS3 - 3-dr hatch range

Overview

Petite Citroen DS3 set to light up the small-car prestige market

6 Sep 2010

A REVOLUTION is happening at Citroen, and although it bears no comparison to the French uprising of the late 1700s, first evidence suggests the result could be significant for customers of the Parisian brand.

The ‘anti-retro’ DS3 takes Citroen into unchartered premium compact-car waters and arrives here in two 1.6-litre specification grades priced from under $33,000 to compete directly with BMW’s popular Mini.

Both versions are powered by variations of the BMW-developed engines seen in the Mini, with the entry-level DStyle offering an 88kW petrol four matched exclusively with a four-speed automatic transmission.

The flagship DS3 DSport tops the Australian DS3 line-up at $35,990 and, apart from a more powerful 115kW version of the turbocharged 135kW Mini Cooper S engine, offers even more customisation options than the DStyle.
