2011 Citroën DS3 by Orla Kiely.jpg

Citroën DS3/DS 3. 2009–19 (prod. 500,000 approx.). 3-door saloon, 2-door cabriolet. F/F, 1199 cm³ (I3 DOHC), 1397, 1598 cm³ petrol, 1398, 1560 cm³ diesel (I4 DOHC). Citroën revived the DS initials, saying it would launch a range of cars to recapture the spirit of the Déesse. In reality, it was a marketing move, with the first entry, the DS3, the coupé version of the revised C3. Designed to be a “non-retro” alternative to the Mini (R55, R56, R57) and the Fiat 500 (2007–), but more mature. More spacious, comfortable ride, and actually quite capable in the handling stakes. Cabriolet with roll-back canvas top from 2013. Refresh in 2014; officially DS 3 (with DS as marque) from 2014 in China. Another refresh in 2016 as DS marque adopted worldwide.
