Auto Trader verdict:
The DS 3 is one of the coolest superminis you can buy and the latest revisions will no doubt ensure sales remain strong. We love the looks and the fact that it can be customised to your heart’s content, and we’re pleased to see the investment in up-to-the-minute technology. Beyond that, our ardour begins to cool. The punishing ride and high levels of road noise prove extremely tiring on longer journeys, while the dynamic shortfalls mean the DS 3 is nowhere near as engaging or as enjoyable to drive as a Mini hatchback.
