Leasing a DS DS 3 Hatchback
The DS 3 was the first major vehicle produced by DS, then known as the Citroen DS 3 thanks to the co-branding in those days with its parent company, Citroen. The DS 3 won the Car of the Year award from Top Gear in 2010, the year of its initial release, as it wowed the world with its small yet mighty design. Though available as a Cabrio/Convertible, the 3-door hatchback model provides a practical, affordable solution for those living in cities with narrow streets. The DS 3 Crossback hatchback offers a crossover alternative.
The DS 3 hatchback is available with petrol and diesel engine choices. The PureTech petrol units offer performance, and the BlueHDI diesel engines deliver economy. The engines are paired with a standard manual gearbox, or the smooth changing EAT8 automatic transmission. There is no hybrid or electric version, though the DS 3 CrossbackE-Tense is a great electric vehicle and the diesel Crossback hatchback sibling is also worth considering.
This hatchback car, much like the DS 3 Cabrio, is available in either a DSign, DStyle or DSport trim. The DSport version includes turbocharged engines, whilst the DStyle sacrifices some of this power in favour of some noteworthy aesthetic improvements. Whilst there’s no top-end La Premiere trim equivalent for the DS hatchback, choosing the right trim will determine whether this new car is right for you or not.
The DS 3 hatchback has a 5-star review from the Euro NCAP crash testing, solidifying its place as a safe vehicle to drive. This is supported by a standardised speed limiter and cruise control, as well as both passenger and sidecar airbags. In terms of infotainment, the DS 3 includes an audio system with sophisticated controls, whilst the DStyle trims and above include USB charge points and BlueTooth connectivity.
