One of the most stylish superminis of recent years, the Citroën DS3 was produced between 2009 and 2016 and is available in pre-owned form as a three-door hatchback or convertible. The sporty DS3’s compact dimensions make it ideal for effortless city driving; it can easily weave in and out of busy traffic – and fit into the tightest of parking spaces.
The DS3 boasts chic good looks and an upmarket cabin; it’s also a genuine joy to drive and is likely to garner admiring looks and comments from many quarters. The car possesses an appealingly aggressive stance and is enhanced by expansive wheel arches, super-stylish alloy wheels, a rising window line and a gently tapering roofline. The DS3’s powerful-looking front end commands attention too, with its conspicuous radiator grille and large, boomerang-shaped headlights.
Despite the vehicle’s relatively small size, it provides a decent amount of space for each traveller, even those positioned in the back row. If the DS3’s 285-litre boot space isn’t quite enough to contain the results of, say, a big shopping expedition, simply fold the rear seats to reveal 980 litres of cargo capacity.
The car comes with a five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating, plenty of safety technology and lots of standard equipment, such as electric front windows and a stereo sound system.
The Citroën DS3 is very affordable to run, particularly when a 1.6-litre 120bhp diesel engine is nestled beneath its bonnet. This returns as much as 78mpg, produces CO2 emissions as low as 94g/km yet is still capable of 0-60mph in less than ten seconds. Variants fitted with a 1.6-litre 155bhp petrol unit, meanwhile, deliver 240Nm of torque and 0-60mph in 7.1 seconds, while still managing up to 48mpg and a 135g/km emissions figure.
