Citroen’s chic fu­ture

The Courier-Mail - Motoring - - FRONT PAGE -

CITROEN wanted to make a state­ment with the DS3. It worked.

The French crowd wanted it to be anti-retro, wanted to move the style dis­cus­sion for­ward. That worked too.

For this one here, black with white roof, looks like it’s a pa­trol car that’s es­caped from some sci-fi movie set. (And in other colour com­bi­na­tions it still looks like it’s come from streets of the fu­ture.)

So there is a sense the DS3 DSport could be one of to­mor­row’s hero cars; pleas­ingly, there’s a deal of sub­stance to back this style. This is a Citroen to con­sider against the likes of BMW’s Mini, the Alfa Romeo Mito and, per­haps, the Fiat 500.

It is a thor­oughly mod­ern mini, in­side and out.
