About the DS3

First released in 2009, the Citroen DS3 was the name given to this supermini compact car until 2016, when it was rebadged as the DS3 after DS became a standalone brand in 2015. The DS3 enjoyed 3 more model years of production before being finally discontinued and replaced with the DS 3 Crossback.

The Citroen DS3 enjoyed strong sales in its first few years, topping out in 2011 when it was revamped and selling more than 78,000 units. After strong sales between 2009 and 2013, however, it started to dwindle in popularity all the way up to its cancellation in 2019.

Initially, the DS3 was powered by a 1.3L inline-4 engine outputting just 94-hp and 100 lb-ft of torque. It had a 0-60mph time of 10.6 seconds and a top speed of only 114-mph. A more powerful variant was available, however, a 1.6L inline-4 that delivered up to 120-hp and 120 lb-ft of torque, cutting the acceleration time to 8.9 seconds.

A high-performance engine variant was also available, known as the THP 207. It was first released in 2010, and was a 1.6L inline-4 that raised the total power output to 204-hp, and the torque to 203 lb-ft. What’s more, it cut the 0-60mph time down to 6.5 seconds, making it the fastest Citroen DS3 in the lineup, equal to the 210-hp updated THP 210 that arrived in 2016 when the Citroen name was dropped from the vehicle.

The supermini was very well received, even by prominent TV vehicles like the UK’s Top Gear, which had previously been critical of so many supermini cars. The show awarded the Citroen DS3 with “2010 Car of the Year,” and JD Power also ranked it “First Supermini” four years running in their “JD Power Satisfaction Survey UK.”

Fuel efficiency was another hallmark of this car, achieving up to 52.4-mpg combined, second only to its somewhat less-celebrated sibling, Citroen C3.
