DS 3 Crossback crossover (2019 - )

The compact crossover sector is packed with stylish and distinctive cars and, as a relatively unknown brand, DS Automobiles faces an uphill struggle. Thankfully the DS 3 is a good-looking and distinctive car and also impresses with its interior quality, equipment, safety tech and performance. It’s also decent to drive but it does struggle a little in terms of practicality and functionality, not least the touch-screen infotainment system. It’s also not as cheap as you might expect but the all-electric E-Tense version is an impressive option in this sector.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Compare DS 3 Crossback models with equivalent versions of cars like the Audi Q2 and Mini Countryman on price and there’s very little in it. Resale values look pretty strong and should mean the DS 3 does a decent job of protecting your investment if you buy privately, and should also mean more affordable monthly payments if you’re a finance customer.

Your choice of petrol, diesel or electric will have a bearing on both purchase price and running costs, so think about how you’ll be using your DS 3 before committing either way. The petrol versions are cheaper to buy and fuel is more affordable but diesel will be better if you do big mileages and lots of motorway miles.

Like the Peugeot 2008 on which it is based, the DS 3 Crossback is also available as a pure electric model. This is priced a tad more than the comparable e-2008 but is on a par with rivals. If you have the facility to charge at home the higher purchase price of the electric version could quickly be offset by the far cheaper running costs.
