Citroen DS3 Hatchback (2010 - )

The Citroen DS3 has the sort of looks that'll get image-conscious buyers flocking to showrooms. It has a high quality cabin and it's also pretty good to drive. However, some rivals are even better.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

If you expect Citroens to have plasticky, cheap-feeling interiors, think again. The DS3’s cabin features soft-touch materials and glossy panels that give it an impressive feeling of class, while the intricately designed dials and funky interior design touches add a fair dose of style. That’s before you’ve even begun to start customising your car’s interior with the vast array of colour options available for the fascia panels, air-vent surrounds and upholstery. These can be selected to match – or clash – with the car’s paint colour, depending on preference. This isn’t a car for the shy-and-retiring. The fiddly stereo system is the only real black mark on the ergonomic front – all the other dials and switches work well. And, because all models have a height-adjustable driver’s seat and two-way steering wheel adjustment, it’s easy to find a comfortable driving position. It’s not so easy to see out of the back, though, due to the small rear window.
