CHIC AND UNIQUE: New DS 3 makes a winning formula even better. We've designed a clean new look, improved the way it drives and given it technology relevant to everyday life. But we've kept that unique character to ensure New DS 3 is the automotive embodiment of Parisian chic.
AVANT-GARDE DESIGN - INSTANTLY RECOGNISABLE
The DS 3 will guarantee you'll get noticed. The taut, sculpted shape retains the features DS 3 has become famous for: the floating roof, the 'shark's fin' shaped side pillar and our stunning lighting design. Unashamedly modern, it remains true to our inimitable spirit of avant-garde.
SEE THE LIGHT - NEW FACE OF DS 3
As with every other DS, New DS 3 sport our distinctive front grille. We call the unique shape where it merges into the headlamps DS Wings. New DS 3 also benefit from LED lighting technology with a Xenon module. This is DS LED vision*, characterised by a wide, deep, white beam that reduces eye strain at night but uses less energy.
Mirror Screen* uses Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink for Android to seamlessly mirror compatible smartphones on the vehicle touchscreen. You're able to access all the key functions of your phone easily and safely while at the wheel of New DS 3; browse your music collection and audio books, access maps, compose and listen to SMS messages using voice controls and even Apple's Siri at the touch of a button. A range of third party apps ensure you're always connected, allowing you to check the weather forecast, locate parking spaces or listen to web radio from all over the world. Mirror Screen is the simple way to stay in touch while your on the move. (Functionality may vary and is dependent on a compatible smartphone and apps).

ON THE ROAD
New DS 3 stand out through a finely judged combination of lively handling and excellent ride comfort. We call this Dynamic Hypercomfort. Thanks to its compact dimensions, New DS 3 feels lithe and responsive, taking the windiest roads in its stride. This composure is the result of thousands of hours of work calibrating its chassis, suspension and power assisted steering. From tyres to seats, our engineers have left no stone unturned in their efforts to create a car that reacts rewardingly but also reassuringly.
Is vital in a car because we know that you don't always drive for fun. It's easy for anyone to get comfortable at the leather-clad steering wheel because it, and the seats, adjust for both reach and height. We've tuned the suspension dampers to read the road, whatever the surface. This ensures New DS 3's cockpit remains calm and comfortable wherever you go. Practicality is helped by five proper seats. And at 285 litres has the biggest boot in its class. You can fold the rear seat backs with one hand in a single move; the glove box is the biggest in its class at 13 litres; and the cockpit is full of handy storage spaces.
THE EFFICENT PERFORMER
The petrol and diesel engines available in New DS 3 offer various combinations of performance and efficiency. All but one come with Stop & Start which automatically cuts the engine when you don't need it, restarting it when it's time to move off. The five petrol engines are PureTech 82 S&S, PureTech 110 S&S, PureTech 130 S&S, THP 165 and the new THP 210 S&S. Awarded International Engine of the Year in 2105 and 2016, the three-cylinder Pure-Tech engine family has been designed to reduce fuel consumption and emissions by 25 per cent compared to four-cylinder engines with the same power output. In addition to the manual transmission, the PureTech 110 engine is available with the EAT6 automatic. This guarantees changes that are even quicker than a traditional manual gearbox. The THP 165 offers surprising efficiency for such a sporty engine, thanks in part to its six-speed manual gearbox.
There are two BlueHDi diesel engines; the BlueHDi 100 and BlueHDi 120. This new family of engines eliminates 90 per cent of Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions while also reducing fuel consumption and cutting CO2 emissions. The results is the BlueHDi 100, one of the cleanest engines in its class with CO2 emissions of just 87g/km. The 94g/km of CO2 BlueHDi 120 comes with a six-speed manual gearbox.
The safety and security of you and your passengers is our primary concern. As a result, all New DS3 have a formidable braking system: Parking sensors front and rear*, a reversing camera*, Hill Start Assist* or Active City Brake which is an automatic braking system designed to prevent crashes as speeds of up to 18mph. A laser located in the windscreen detects obstacles in your path. If you don't react, it will start slowing down or brake to a halt without you touching the brake pedal.
DS Connect Box is available on every DS model, including New DS 3. The SOS & Assistance pack automatically calls the emergency services in the event of an accident. The Monitoring Pack is a virtual service record and gives you eco-driving tips.
