Citroen South Africa has added a new addition to the DS Line, the Citroen DS3 Cabrio, which uses intelligent design innovation to make top-down driving considerably easier and enjoyable.
Citroen DS3 Cabrio offers fine top-down motoringEngine Capability
The Citroen DS3 Cabrio will be available with three petrol engine options. The VTi 82 1.2-litre three cylinder engine producing 60kW of power and 118Nm of Torque.
The VTi 120 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine producing 88kW of power and 160Nm of torque.
The turbocharged THP 155 1.6-litre engine producing 115kW of power and 240Nm of torque.
The VTi 82 and 120 models are mated to a five-speed manual transmission, while the high performance THP 155 model uses a six-speed manual transmission.
Exterior Design Features
The sophisticated and refined Citroen DS3 Cabrio retains the hatchback’s compact proportions and bold styling choices such as the floating roof, characteristic shark fin and front LED daytime running lights. The electrically adjustable soft top roof adds to the models distinctive personality. This technical innovation can be operated at driving speeds up to 120km/h. It takes just 16 seconds to close from the full open position and does not go down into the luggage compartment, thus providing the largest boot in the category at 245-litres.
Another unique and exciting feature is the tailgate which opens with a circular motion that allows easier access to the luggage compartment. Extensive work has been done in the wind tunnel on the aerodynamics of the Citroen DS3 Cabrio, which maximises performance and helps maintain low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Additional features include a three dimensional light signature with 3D taillights inspired by the Citroen Revolte and Survolt concept cars. The 3D light features a chrome finished DS logo in an embossed black DS setting and a set of 31 rectangular LED’s and semi-reflecting mirrors that reflect the light guide endlessly.
The five-seat Citroen DS3 Cabrio is fitted with all new upholstery including three Claudia leather options, while the dashboard colour replicates the roof colour. Customers can personalise the soft top roof in three optional colours: Brilliant Black, as standard, Infini Blue and DS Monogramme Moondust as optional.
“Following on from the global success of the DS Line to date and globally outselling Brands such as Infiniti, Alfa and Cadillac, the new Citroen DS3 Cabrio is yet another important addition to the DS3 in an image conscious market demanding individuality and personalisation. A combination of attractive pricing as a market leader in customisation makes for a compelling purchase argument in the ultra-competitive supermini category,” said Grant Bowring General Manger of Marketing for Citroen SA.
“Along with our re-positioning of DS3 Hatch from specification and price and the changes made to the DS3 line as a whole, owning a Citroen DS3 is more appealing than ever.”
