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.
The New DS 3 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 the avant-garde
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.
The leathers we use go through an extensive process to look, smell and
feel just right. That sort of attention to detail appears throughout New DS
3. It guarantees even our most compact car meets the
exacting standards of comfort and refinement we demand of every DS.
At DS we employ some of the most talented craftsmen in the world. To ensure that we make
the most of their skills, we give them some of the finest materials available. The leather we
choose is an excellent example of this. Grained leather* comes from the grained part of the
hide. It is then treated to give a regular finish throughout. Nappa leather* displays the natural
characteristics of the hide with no or very few imperfections. It needs barely any treatment
and is finished with colouring designed to enhance the hide’s natural grain. The result is a
stunning hand-stitched interior that now includes a leather-clad instrument binnacle for the
ultimate touch of luxury
Every New DS 3 benefits from a centrally-mounted 7-inch touchscreen*. This
enables easy access to functions such as satellite navigation, the sound system,
smartphone connectivity, the car’s driving settings and Mirror Screen. For maximum
ease of use and safety, it works with steering wheel mounted controls. Without
taking your hands off the wheel you can adjust the cruise control or speed limiter and
control the audio system.
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 access 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 you’re
on the move. (Functionality may vary and is dependent on a compatible smartphone and apps).
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 four petrol engines are PureTech 82 S&S, PureTech 110 S&S, PureTech 130 S&S and THP 165 S&S. Awarded International Engine of the Year in 2015, the three-cylinder PureTech engine family has been designed to reduce fuel consumption and emissions by 25 per cent compared to fourcylinder 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 CO 2 emissions. The result is the BlueHDi 100, one of the cleanest engines in its class with CO 2 emissions of just 87g/km. The 94g/km of CO 2 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 DS 3 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.
