Performance

Ride

With DS3 we wanted to create a car that was as finely attuned to your individual style as it was finely attuned to the road. And it worked. Voted the Top Gear Car of the Year 2010 and more recently ranked 'Best Small Car' in the J.D. Power Study 2013, receiving 'Highest Overall Ownership Satisfaction among Small Cars', it's official, DS3 is a driver's dream. It hugs the road with responsiveness and vigour, the compact steering wheel just feels right, your seat is set sporty and low, and your choice of three petrol engines and two diesel engines make no compromise on performance or environmental benefit.

Gearboxes

A responsive 5-speed manual gearbox comes with all petrol and diesel engines, apart from the THP 155 and e-HDi 115.
The 6-speed manual, available with the THP 155 petrol engine and e-HDi 115 diesel engine, delivers smooth, fast gear-changing for exceptional performance. The sixth gear is quieter and saves fuel.
The 4-speed automatic gearbox – available with the VTi 120 petrol engine – lets you choose between automatic mode, which adapts the gearshift speed to your driving style, and sequential mode, where you can change gears freely.

Engines

Citroën DS3 is available with a broad selection of high-performance and environmentally-friendly petrol and diesel engines. All offer an unmatched drive in the city and on the open road, from the e-HDi 90 Airdream with its manual transmission, to the e-HDi 115 Airdream, the VTi 82, the VTi 95, the VTi 120 with a manual or automatic gearbox or the THP 155.
