DS 3 Hatchback (2015 - )

The DS 3 has the looks and image to keep buyers flocking to showrooms. It also has a stylish cabin, a decent range of engines and a plethora of customizing options. Sadly, the whole package is undermined by a harsh ride, a disconnected driving experience and high levels of road noise.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The DS 3’s cabin features soft-touch materials and glossy panels that give it an impressive feeling of class, while the thoughtfully designed dials and funky touches add a fair dose of sophistication. 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 exterior colour, depending on your preference. In terms of ergonomics, the dials and switches work well enough, although some functions are tucked away in the touch-screen sub-menus. All models have a height-adjustable driver’s seat and two-way adjustment on the steering wheel, so most folk will find it easy to adopt a comfortable driving position. It’s not so easy to see out of the back, though, due to the small rear windows.
