DS AUTOMOBILES DS 3
Introduction
The DS3 stylised performance compact hatch was first launched with Citroen badging back in 2010, then re-launched as a stand-alone DS product when DS became a brand in its own right in 2015.

It's this later 'DS' DS3 that we look at here, a car that saw the brand through the next four years to the period where it could create its own bespoke designs.

The change from 'Citroen' to 'DS' branding in 2015 was accompanied by a few changes, a light model refresh adding fresh engine options, more media connectivity and greater scope for individuality with both the hatch and Cabrio bodystyles.

This car's fundamental fashionability though, is what really sustained sales.

Even as a used car, this model still gets people talking.

History
This DS3 was the car that rejuvenated the fortunes of its Citroen maker, following this model's original launch in 2010.

Young, affluent, style-conscious customers were tempted by its blend of fashionable sporty practicality and Parisian style.

In its lightly refreshed form in 2015, this design was tasked with performing a similarly pivotal role for the freshly-formed DS brand as the entry point to the company's likeable line-up. It's quite possible that you're already very familiar with this car - at least in its original form - and if so, you'll know that it's a trendy small urban trinket in the MINI or Fiat 500 mould.

Or almost.

The original DS3 designers certainly had their eyes on cars of that kind, but instead of copying rivals with a 'retro' look, they instead championed a fresher, more forward-thinking shape that had the added advantage of much improved practicality.

It meant that DS3 owners could enjoy Sloane Street style with Sainsburys sensibility, a winning combination further developed by the launch of a Cabrio version in 2013 and the introduction of more up-to-date engineware a year later.

As a result, sales momentum was maintained and by the end of 2015, over 390,000 DS3 models had been sold. By then though, things were changing.

The DS concept this car had first pioneered had swiftly been extended into larger DS4 and DS5 models, these cars creating a Citroen sub-brand so successful that it was decided DS should be created as a premium auto maker in its own right.

The DS4 and DS5 ranges were quickly re-styled and re-positioned within this newly-formed marque's model line-up and the DS3 followed suit early in 2016, creating the car we're going to look at here. There was more though, to this improved DS3 than merely a different badge on the bonnet.

Smarter styling was complemented by the addition of two fresh engines to the line-up, including one for the kind of properly potent hot hatch variant the standard model range had previously never had.

There was also more equipment, extra scope for personalisation and, inside, extra media connectivity via a smartly hi-tech 7-inch colour touchscreen.

It was all just about enough to sustain the car through to the end of 2019 when a new design based on a more modern CMP2 platform, the DS3 Crossback small SUV, took over.
What You Get
To the uninitiated, the DS3 is still quite a sight.

Yes, the basic shape is that of a traditional supermini, but it was developed with the kind of flair usually reserved for concept cars, distinctive curves marking extremities that see the wheels pushed right out to the corners, producing a squat, purposeful stance.

The real drama, however, is in the detail.

From the 'shark fin' B-pillar to the contrasting 'floating' roof panel and the distinct sill line connecting the wheelarches, the DS3 always remained ferociously unconventional.

The move to full DS branding brought with it the opportunity to re-style the front end, where the vertical grille was changed to proudly incorporate the 'DS Wings' brand logo and extends smoothly into headlights that feature 'LED Vision' xenon technology on plusher variants. The hatch model offers a 285-litre boot that's pretty much equal in size to the space you'd get in a practical Ford Fiesta.

That makes it around 35% bigger than the trunk offered by an ordinary MINI and nearly twice as large as the cargo area found in stylised rivals from this period like Fiat's 500 or Vauxhall's ADAM.

Unfortunately, there's quite a high loading lip to get your stuff over before you can access it though.

Enough with the practicality.

On to how this car is going to make you feel when you slip behind the wheel.

Pretty smug and self-satisfied we think, if you're moving into it from a conventional supermini.

Plus there's the high quality cabin ambience that always marked out this DS3, with its piano black trimming and cool white lighting. The key change made as part of this model's move into full DS branding was the addition of a smart 7-inch colour touchscreen for the centre stack.

It was a standard item across the range and played a significant part in de-cluttering the dash, with functionality removing no fewer than 21 buttons from the fascia.

A pity though, that it can't be activated by the kind of rotary controller that rival MINI and Audi A1 models get.

Otherwise, it works well, marshalling audio, telephone and 'Driving' trip computer functions, along with the eMyWay navigation system, where that's fitted.

The touchscreen also enables the DS brand to offer a wide range of media connectivity 'Connected Services' in this car - not only an internet browser but also 'Mirror Screen' functionality (which was optional lower down the range) that provides access to the 'MirrorLink' and 'Apple CarPlay' systems, allowing you to duplicate the functionality of your smartphone onto this display. Accessing the rear in the three-door-only model can be a bit tricky due to the huge B-pillar and the chunky front seats, though there's a grab handle thoughtfully positioned to aid the process.

Once you're in place, the actual space provided isn't too bad - at least for two people anyway, provided they're not too tall and the journey involved isn't too long.

There's certainly a vast amount more space back here than you'd get in supposedly competitive models from this period like the three-door MINI Hatch, the Fiat 500, the Vauxhall ADAM and the Alfa Romeo MiTo.

What's even more impressive is the room you get in the back of the Cabrio version.

True, getting into the back isn't quite as easy as it would be in a full-blown soft-top like a MINI Convertible because you have to duck under the roof pillar as you would in any three-door hatchback. Once you're there though, there's an unusual bonus.

As in the hatch model, there's the potential to theoretically take three passengers across the back seat.

OK, so a trio of adults would be rather squashed if you tried to do that, but three small children would be fine with it.

This kind of capability is unique in the small cabrio class from this period and opens up soft-top ownership to family buyers who otherwise simply wouldn't be able to consider a car of this kind. We'll finish this section with a few words on the roof of the Cabrio version.

At first glance you'd be forgiven for not realising this to be a soft top variant at all.

After all, the profile of this model is identical to that of its fixed-top counterpart, the fabric opening section limited to the very top of the car.

Actually though, the roof mechanism is quite sophisticated, made up of over 180 different parts and electrically operated by a button on the overhead console that, impressively, can retract the roof at any speed up to 75mph.

Prodding the button once will slide the canvas back so that it concertinas like a busker's accordion above a rear screen which, if you continue to press the button, will hinge forward to lie on the parcel shelf, before the folded canvas sandwich motors back to take its place.

As with the folding tops provided by most rivals, you'll find that when retracted, this one almost totally blocks rearward vision - hence the Cabrio variant's standard parking sensors.

The roof acrobatics take only 16s from start to finish and when the whole thing's open, there's a pop-up wind deflector that springs out of the top roof rail to quell the worst of the turbulence. Of course, when you do have the roof down, you don't want it to take up so much space at the back that there's no room for people or packages.

In the DS3 Cabrio it doesn't.

Take rear cargo space, accessible via a cantilevered boot lid that rises neatly outwards and upwards in a circular motion that means you can open it even when parked close to obstructions.

It's unfortunate that once it is open, the aperture available is pretty small, though actually, the capacity on offer is greater than it first appears - 245-litres in all.

That's 30-litres more than you'd get in a rival MINI Convertible and 63-litres more than you'd get in an equivalent Fiat 500C.

Plus you can extend it by folding down the same 60/40 split-folding rear bench you'll find on the DS3 hatch, revealing up to 980-litres.

What to Look For
We should start by pointing out that as a whole, DS3 owners are a very happy bunch.

If your perception of DS / Citroens corresponds with unreliability, then it's time to change your perspective.

The later post-2015-era DS3 range we're looking at here comes from a time when most of the original post-2010 model's teething issues had been sorted out.

All that having been said, there have been faults reported and we found a number on our various surveys: you might want to look out for these on the used market. There have been reports of sticky rear door hinges and a few owners have reported minor electrical faults, some connected to the wiring harness.

One owner we came across had a windscreen wiper fuse blow.

Another had experienced fuel sensor and fan cooling issues.

Watch out for trim rattles, particularly in areas like the exterior rubbing strip.

And a few petrol models have reported issues with light and temperature sensors, turbo pumps and cam chains.

Not that there's any real issue with the turbo THP petrol engine that sustains pacier models.

It was co-developed with BMW and is an excellent powerplant with a great reliability record.

You'll find versions of this engine in cars such as the Peugeot 208 GTI and the MINI Cooper S, so it's tried and tested tech.
Replacement Parts
(approx based on a 2015 DS3 1.6 BlueHDi 100) Parts prices won't break the bank, with an air filter priced in the £10 to £19 bracket, while a fuel filter costs around £21-£26 and an oil filter costs in the £10 to £11 bracket.

A water pump will be priced in the £28 to £63 bracket, while a starter motor is around £66.

On to brakes.

A set of front pads tend to retail in the £14 to £44 bracket (rears £11-£30).

Front brake discs retail in the £33 to £88 bracket, though you can pay up to around £128 if you go for a more expensive brand.

Brake callipers retail in the £150 to £175 bracket.

A radiator is around £85.
On the Road
Under the bonnet of mainstream hard-top and Cabrio models, there's a wide choice of engines.

For petrol people, there's a choice of either a 1.2-litre three cylinder PureTech unit or a 1.6-litre THP powerplant.

Go for the PureTech variants and the range starts with a normally aspirated 82bhp derivative, but it's better to stretch to one of the turbo options, offering either 110 or 130bhp.

The 'PureTech 110' variant is the only one in the range offering the option of automatic transmission - the PSA Group impressively efficient EAT6 gearbox.

For more performance, you'll need the turbo THP unit.

This was offered with 165bhp - or with 208bhp if you choose the 'Performance' hot hatch variant that was added in at the top of the range with the range to DS branding.

This gets a wider track, lowered suspension, uprated brakes and a Torsen limited-slip differential. As for diesel power, well there's a choice of either 100 or 120bhp versions of the PSA Group's usual 1.6-litre BlueHDi engine.

These are impressively clean and frugal: expect 83.1mpg on the combined cycle and 87g/km of CO2 from the BlueHDi 100 variant, for example (both NEDC figures).

Whatever engine you choose in your DS3, you should find the car good to drive: it certainly feels very different from the Citroen C3 supermini it's based upon.

And if you opt for the Cabrio bodystyle, there's the added bonus of fresh air thrills whenever you want them, courtesy of a roof you can operate at speeds of up to 75mph.
Overall
You can see why the DS3 struck such a chord with its customers.

Even today, the basic shape looks fresh and fashionable and it was personalisable to an extent that wasn't possible with many rivals.

Plus the subtle DS-branded re-style proved to be just enough to keep the design feeling current.

Back in 2015, we approved of the more fundamental changes made here as part of the change to full DS branding - the PureTech 130 petrol engine, the 'Performance' hot hatch variant and the 7-inch infotainment colour touchscreen for the cabin with its extra media connectivity.

These built upon the changes already made to this car towards the end of its life as a Citroen, things like the 'Active City Brake' system and frugal BlueHDi diesel technology. It all means that if you think you know this DS3, then you probably don't.

The DS brand letters stand for a 'Different Spirit' and in this later form, this car aimed to offer just that.

Comparable rivals from the period remain either conventionally dull - or limited by the retro appeal they tried to recreate.

Which leaves this affordable DS model with a clearly defined and in many ways still quite unique appeal in both hatch and Cabrio guises.

In summary, if you're looking for a trendy, fizzy little hatch or cabrio from the 2015-2019 period, three doors are sufficient and your fashionable trendiness must keep some practical perspective, it's hard to ignore.

This will secure the car ready for collection.
Do your cars come with a warranty, and if so what does this cover?
Since we’re big on peace of mind, we provide a 90-day warranty on all of our cars. This does not affect your statutory rights. You even have the choice to purchase an extended warranty from us to make sure you’re covered for longer if anything was to go wrong. These include 1, 2, or 3-year warranty plans. You’ll be pleased to know that our warranty covers both all major mechanical and electrical components in case of a sudden mechanical breakdown. Parts and labor are also included. Under our warranty, you’ll have coverage for the engine, gearbox, transmissions, and suspension as well as smaller items such as electric windows and central locking.
How do I get my car valued?
You can use our online valuation tool to receive an instant, no-obligation valuation. Once you have completed this, you will receive your valuation by email so you have all the details ready for when you visit us. Once you visit our dealership, you will receive your final valuation quote once your vehicle has been inspected by our appraisal team.
Why should I sell or part exchange with Big Motoring World?
There are several reasons why selling or part exchanging your car with us would be ideal. Firstly, it is an extremely efficient and fast process, taking the hassle out of selling privately and dealing with tyre kickers. We will also offer you our best price guaranteed, providing a competitive valuation that is hard to beat.
Can I drive away on the same day in a car I’ve just purchased?
Yes, you can. All of our vehicles are ready to drive away. If you are applying for finance, however, you will need to be on-site by 3 pm in order to take the car the same day.
