the_SHIFT is back after a bit of leave and we are kicking off again with this 2011 Citroen DS3, probably the bast hatchback Citroen has ever made. The Citroën DS3 is the first model from Citroën's brand new DS line, a product range consisting of three distinctively styled, attention-grabbing models that highlight the very best of Citroën's 'créative technologie.'
With razor sharp styling and a visually-arresting design, Citroën DS3 is a radical take on the compact urban vehicle and a contemporary breath of fresh air for the class. Offering freedom of expression, the innovative Citroën DS3 provides extensive levels of personalisation - both inside and out.
The DS3 is available with 5 power houses option, two diesel and three petrol engines. The petrol engine is co-designed by BMW. Diesel engines are available with 90 bhp and 110 bhp power options while petrol is available with 95bhp, 115 bhp and 150 bhp power options. DS3 comes with aluminiun alloys, DVD player, contrast color package as standard. On technological grounds, it is packed with ESP, ABS with EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution) and EBA (Emergency Brake Assist) as well as six airbags and Isofix anchor points on the rear side seats.
Citroen DS3 really is a break through for Citroen, for sure one of the big hits. Citroen DS3 has already proved that its much better than its rivals in performance terms by taking 2/3 WRC rally wins in 2011 season at the hands of Sabestian Loeb.
