  • DS3's - a guide to the range

    The beginning:
































    Site content:




    The Citroen DS3 was the first car to be launched as part of Citroen’s new luxury ‘DS’ range, which now includes the DS4 and DS5. It’s designed to offer more style, more equipment and a sharper drive than the underwhelming C3 supermini on which it’s based.

    And it’s done it with some success, too, as the little Citroen manages to be a credible rival to not only the MINI and Vauxhall Adam, but also more expensive rivals like the Audi A1. It’s a great looking car that offers huge scope for personalisation, ensuring it’s easy to tailor to your own personal taste.

    Pink Editions released



    Citroen has extended the DS3 supermini range by launching new Pink special editions. The DS3 DStyle Pink and DSport Pink models both feature exclusive interior and exterior trim as well as a few bits of extra kit now fitted as standard.

    Both DS3 Pink models – available only in black or white – feature a fuchsia pink roof, wheel centre caps and matching door mirrors. Inside, the pink theme is continued with the dashboard and gear knob receiving similar treatment. DStyle variants receive 16-inch alloy wheels – matching the chosen body colour – as well as a HiFi System upgrade with additional speakers.

    Top spec DSport models are fitted with larger 17-inch alloy wheels, plus a ‘City Signature’ pack, which adds automatic headlights and wipers, rear parking sensors, heated and electric folding door mirrors and a front central armrest.

    Four engines are offered across the Pink range, with the DStyle models available with a 120bhp 1.6-litre VTi petrol and 90bhp 1.6-litre e-HDi diesel engine. DSport Pink is powered by either a 155bhp 1.6-litre THP petrol or a more powerful 115bhp version of the e-HDi diesel engine, which both emit less than 100g/km of CO2. The DS3 Pink is exclusive to the UK market

    The popular body colour Belle ile Blue will return.

    A new hypnotic gaze.
    New, modern and efficient headlamps featuring a world-first design normally reserved for concept cars; a design that combines LED and XENON technologies with new scrolling indicator lights. At the same time, the DS3 maintains its unique ‘road signature’ styling with the vertical front LED DRLs and the 3D effect of the rear LED lights making DS3 really stand out from the crowd. These new headlights are standard on DSport and Ultra Prestige models and will be available as a cost option at £850 on DSign, DStyle and DStyle Plus models as well as being part of the Plus pack on the new DSire trim level. They also feature on the new Special Edition “DStyle Techno”

    New Active City Brake technology
    DS3 is watching the road with you. New automatic braking technology uses sensors mounted on the windscreen that constantly measure the distance to the vehicle in front and the rate at which this distance reduces. During urban driving at speeds of less than 20mph, the sensors calculate if this distance is reducing too quickly for you to come to a safe stop. If this is the case, the Active City Brake technology will provide braking in order to help avoid a collision with the car in front.
    Active City Brake is standard on DStyle Techno, DSport, DSport Plus and Ultra Prestige versions
    It is included in the Plus Pack for the new DSire trim level
    It will be available as an option, either stand alone or as a part of a pack on other selected trim levels.
    The DSire Plus pack includes Active City Brake

    New reversing camera technology
    Make parking your DS3 a breeze. With the new reversing camera, parking your DS3 has never been easier. The camera is mounted discreetly on the rear of the car and uses the 7 inch colour screen that is fitted when eMyWay is ordered. The camera overlays the area behind the car with helpful guidelines to enable precision parking. The new reversing camera with eMyWay is standard on Ultra Prestige.
    As the camera uses the 7 inch colour screen, the reversing camera is only available within a new eMyWay Signature called ‘eMyWay with Reversing Camera Signature’. This new signature is available as an option on DStyle, DSire, and DSport.
    Details of the availability.

    New Special Edition - DStyle Techno THP 155

              Thanks! Hopefully n00bs will find it useful.


              I've not mentioned manitoba grey either.

              All listed is that is on the market from new now, the older colours are in Bigfeets photo hoover and I'll add this thread to above.

              Just a new name re the black? Like the Cherry/Ruby Red.

                    Oooh interesting, I would never have guessed! I'll have to park up against a newer black and compare.
                    I would describe my obsidian as gloss black, to think you can get blacker....!

                              Ruby Red is a slightly lighter shade of Cherry Red but you would be hard pressed to tell the difference.
