Citroen’s chic future
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.
