Thu, 07/28/2011 - 16:00

In its rather short period of presence in the fashion-aware British market Citroen DS3 has gained a huge fame as one of the trendiest and coolest cars money can buy.

It’s even got Top Gear seal of approval a number of times, and as a result it’s a hot seller in UK right now. So much so that Citroen reported the 100,000th unit of the car sold recently.

And to celebrate the event they’ve come up with new color schemes and roof designs, that adds up to the car’s styling appeal. There is the Fuchsia Pink roof colour is at the heart of the new DS3 options list – available with matching pink door mirrors, wheel centre caps, dashboard fascia and gearlever knob, while customers can also choose a striking new Hickory Brown pearlescent body colour and two additional ‘Spirit’ roof designs – ‘Flower’ and ‘Flavio’ – to ensure they stand out from the crowd.


They are available to order form July, but no word on pricing yet.

Here’s more details on the Citroen DS3, if you are too thinking of getting one:

DS3 has already earned a reputation as one of the most stylish cars on the road, having picked up a whole host of awards, including Top Gear Magazine’s ‘Car of the Year’ and Fifth Gear’s ‘Small Car of the Year’.

Sales of the DS3 have blossomed since its launch early in 2010 and over 10,000 DS3’s have been sold in the UK alone.  The extensive range of personalisation options and special collections – such as DS3 by Orla Kiely – have played a key role in ensuring the model’s success.


Proving that environmentally-considerate motoring doesn’t mean having to compromise on style or performance, the Citroën DS3 will be available with a choice of five CO2-efficient Euro V power plants consisting of two HDi diesel units and three BMW co-developed petrol engines, combining refined performance with strong fuel economy.

The two HDi diesels – a 90bhp and an 110bhp – are fitted with Citroën’s lauded DPFS (Diesel Particulate Filter System) and the three petrol engines – VTi 95, VTi 120 and THP 150 – are fitted with either 5 or 6 speed manual gearboxes.

Fully in line with Citroën’s commitment to producing cleaner, more environmentally considerate vehicles, the two HDi DPFS engines will deliver ultra low CO2 emissions of just 99g/km and 115/g km, whilst the petrol units will emit between 136/km and 160g/km.


Both enjoyable and easy to live with, the Citroën DS3 combines high-end style with practical versatility, creating an exceptionally spacious cabin out of its compact external dimensions – a Citroën speciality.

One of the smallest vehicles in its class – 3.95m long, 1.71m wide and 1.46m high – the Citroën DS3′s interior belies its neat frame, setting a new class standard for spaciousness. The result of extensive work on the architecture of the car’s interior design, occupants can enjoy levels of roominess normally associated with models in the segment above.

A ‘raised’ dashboard design creates increased amounts of front leg room whilst the slender front seats and intelligent rear design increases space for rear occupants with all passengers able to enjoy five full-sized seats and ample arm, leg and headroom.

The Citroën DS3 also boasts the largest boot in its class at 285-litres, and for additional load capacity the 60:40 split-fold rear bench can be tumbled forward in a single, effortless movement.


A cockpit-inspired driving position puts the driver firmly in control with a sports-styled instrument cluster featuring three conical dials, small-diameter wheel and low-slung, body-hugging seats. Citroën DS3 delivers a nimble driving experience with a turning circle of around 10.3m also making it a surefooted companion for manoeuvring around cramped urban environments.

Building upon Citroën’s extensive experience in producing smooth running-gear, Citroën DS3 delivers impressive ride comfort together with responsive road-handling and dynamic poise. Drivers also benefit from excellent body roll control, responsive and confident cornering thus providing a secure and fulfilling drive.


Citroën DS3 is available with Citroën’s latest in-car technology such as the integrated MyWay satellite navigation unit which incorporates a sophisticated audio and multimedia system, wide format colour screen, MP3 and WMA compatible CD player and Bluetooth® hands free kit. Providing exceptional acoustic clarity, the audio system benefits from a third speaker in the middle of the upper dashboard as well as an amplified subwoofer mounted in the boot for a broader frequency response and immersive audio experience.

A convenient range of driving aids will also be available including cruise control with speed limiter, and an intelligent indicator which recommends the optimal moment for gear changes allowing drivers to improve their fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.


The Citroën DS3 is designed with an emphasis on robustness, strength and optimum safety to ensure protection for all occupants. For reassuring control in any driving situation Citroën DS3 models will feature as standard ESP, ABS with EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution) and EBA (Emergency Brake Assist) as well as six airbags and Isofix anchor points on the rear side seats.
