Which DS DS 3 is Ideal for You?

The DS 3, formally known as the Citroen DS 3 or DS 3 Crossback, is a luxury supermini produced by French manufacturer Citroen. Launched in 2010, it was the first entry-level model from the DS premium brand.

DS 3 started life as a three-door hatchback, the second generation from 2019. It is now a stylish 5dr hatchback crossover with a front engine and front-wheel drive.

The DS badge with Citroen is an iconic executive brand associated with style and French sophistication; it was lauded  in the 60s and 70s as super cool and at the forefront of technical development. That French savoir-faire carries through into current marketing with the DS range, offering premium exterior styling and quality interior finishing.
