The DS DS3 is a cheap to run small car which offers an impressive ride and features. It's also has an upmarket appearance and its handling is excellent.
There are some very good engines available - there are two diesel and three petrol engines - for the DS DS3 with the pick of them being the three cylinder 1.2 litre PureTech which offers economy of around 62 mpg and emissions of 107g/km. Better fuel economy is enjoyed by the 1.6 litre BlueHDi 100 which will return 83 mpg with emissions of 87g/km. For those who like better performance levels then the 1.6 litre turbo petrol unit producing 204 bhp is for you and will rocket from 0 to 62 mph in just over six seconds with a top speed of 135 mph.
The DS DS3 has stylish good looks and lots of technical features that help it stand out from a crowded marketplace. The three door car comes in Cabriolet or hatchback body styles and standard equipment includes cruise control, front fog lights, electric windows, speed limiter and tyre pressure monitor. Other models come with xenon headlights and touchscreen satnav and there's also a long list of personalisation options (DS says there are more than 3 million paint combinations), as well as extra packs. Standard safety features include active city braking which will operate when the system detects an imminent collision.
Opt for the DS3 Performance and the driver will have a true ‘hot hatch’ with the 204bhp turbo petrol engine coming with a stiffer suspension, a split differential and larger brakes with excellent levels of performance. All of the DS DS3 models are comfortable to drive, they are certainly more focused on comfort than many rivals with a comfortable suspension which makes them ideal for driving around town.
