Fuel consumption for this engine is rated at 4.6-litres/100km with a CO2 emissions figure of 107g/km. This engine is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Acceleration to 100km/h will take 14.2 seconds before reaching a top speed of 174km/h.

Citroen’s General Manager, Marketing, Grant Bowring said, “The Citroen DS3 is a highly desirable car, with unrivalled emotional appeal and now it is far more attainable thanks to the introduction of the 1.2 VTi Design. It is a worthy bearer of the DS badge, and combines style, innovation and technology in equal measure.”

Design Features

The Citroen DS3 range is offered with a wide range of colour choices including the new Moondust metallic grey and Infini blue for the roof, over and above the black and white roof options. A key differentiator for this model is the striking 3-D effect of the LED lighting for the rear light clusters.
