– a fascia strip including the instrument cluster surround, air vents, and multifunction screens, available in a range of ten colours and finishes;
– the gear shift is available in a choice of five finishes, combining satin chrome with glossy colour or matt leather;

The seat upholstery reflects the same attention to detail as the rest of the cabin of your DS 3. A range of ten choices are available, including three with grained leather (Granit Blue, Mistral and Lama),
and Crescendo, a nappa leather watch-strap design option topping the upholstery range.
Love at first sight. The DS 3 has immediate appeal with its new light signature. To give the car its strong, piercing gaze,
the headlights combine two technologies for the main function: LEDs styled to resemble diamonds in their setting, and a Xenon module.
Absolutely irresistible. The DS 3 has a personality that captivates from the outset, with styling choices inspired by the world of fashion.
With its two-tone body accentuated by the floating roof, shark fins and front and rear light signatures, the DS 3 is a car of inimitable styling.
The DS 3 embodies the codes of Parisian sophistication with features including Nappa leather, Jacquard weave canvas, guilloche chrome, screen-printed rear side windows and a laser engraved fascia strip.
New ambiences for an original, sensual experience: a range of sophisticated materials with touches of bright chrome give the cabin an elegant, surprising look.
The interior of your DS 3 conveys a subtles sense of sophistication with its original, uncluttered design.
The aluminium sport pedal assembly is fitted with non-slip pads, while the gear shift combines satin chrome with glossy colour
or matt leather for a perfect grip.
The automatic air conditioning controls built into the central console feature chrome surrounds.
The DS 3 is unanimously recognised for its driveability and space, with five “real” seats and the largest boot in its category, for both the hatchback and cabriolet versions.
The DS 3 also features new modern high-tech functions that make day-to-day driving easier.
The DS 3 makes everyday life easier. It combines an exceptionally roomy 285-litre boot with a 2/3-1/3 rear bench that can be folded in a single movement.
It also includes generous storage features, including a 13-litre glove box, door bins, central console and dashboard compartments. A foldaway central armrest is also available.
Benchmark acoustic comfort. Vibrations, engine noise, wind
noise and road noise are all effectively damped, close to the sources of emission.
This technology is an emergency braking function used in the city to avoid low-speed collisions. It uses a short-range radar function
at the top of the windscreen.The sensor activates the brakes automatically to avoid a collision at speeds of up to 30 kph.
The scented air-freshener diffuses a subtle, pleasant fragrance around the cabin.
A roller control lets you adjust the intensity of the fragrance.
Your DS 3 features an audio system (Hi-Fi system) with impressive acoustic performance.
It ships with an additional, third speaker located on the dashboard and an amplified subwoofer in the boot.
Select your audio source and just plug in your MP3 player, USB stick or smartphone with Bluetooth audio streaming.
Information is displayed on the multifunction screen.
In the event of impact, passengers in the DS 3 enjoy maximum protection.
The cabin has been made stiffer to prevent objects penetrating into the survival cell and to allow “non-inhabited” areas to crumple
The DS 3 ships with six airbags as standard:
– two front airbags,
– two front side airbags,
– two curtain airbags (front and rear).
Your DS 3 ships with an innovative, complete braking system, featuring:
– an ABS (Anti-Blocking System) function that adjusts braking pressure electronically to stop the wheels locking,
– Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) that distributes braking power evenly to all wheels,
– Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA) that boosts braking power instantly when the driver stamps on the brake pedal.
The CO2 emissions of the DS 3 reflect the brand’s environmental leadership Further enhancing these dynamic sensations,
the DS 3 gains new petrol and diesel engines that already comply with the Euro 6 standard
For petrol versions, the DS 3 ships with the PureTech 82 Stop&Start ETG powertrain, which complies with the Euro 6 standard.
This engine is both economical (4.1 l/100 km over a combined cycle) and eco-friendly (95g/km of CO2).
More powerful and eco-friendly, the BlueHDi 120 engine combines cutting-edge technology with CO2 emissions of 94 g/km
and fuel consumption of 3.6 l/100 km.
For a more economical – and therefore more ecological – drive, your DS 3 ships with a gear change indicator that
analyses your driving style and tells you the best time to change up.
Looking beyond engine performance, the environmental results of the DS 3 are the result of extensive studies on weight control, with designers studying all the possibilities for making the car lighter.
Numerical computation techniques were used extensively to define and test vehicle parts, thus optimising each component in
terms of both weight and technical quality.
With its limited weight and optimised aerodynamics (Cd of 0.31), the DS 3 ensures intelligent management of fuel consumption and thus CO2 emissions
Building on the experience of the brand and its nine WRC titles, brand engineers took the DS 3 Sport Chic and remodelled it
to reflect the image of CITROËN’s motor sports department for a sporty, exclusive result.
Taking the styling cues of the DS 3, this car sets itself apart with its 100% Racing features, such as a chrome-tipped tail pipe or the carbon finish on many body parts. The DS 3 Racing is 3.94m long and shod with large 18-inch wheels of original design. It is available in two colours,
Obsidien Black with an orange roof or Banquise White with a grey roof.
The same approach is applied to the interior, which features colour-keyed and carbon details on many trim parts such as the central dashboard fascia or armrests in the doors.
With its 1.6l engine developing 202 bhp (torque of 275 Nm) and a high-precision chassis, the DS 3 Racing covers 1,000m from a standing start in 26.5 seconds, to reach 100 kph in 6.5 seconds. A car that embodies sporting performance.
To hug the road, the front and rear tracks have been widened by 30m and the body height lowered by 15 mm. These changes completely alter the ride of the DS 3.
The high-precision steering has also been modified to reflect the car’s dynamic nature, as have the brakes, which gain Racing specs to increase their performance and durability, with four-piston callipers at the front, in particular.
The DS 3 Racing thus has all the qualities necessary to set the standard in its category.
